Meridian High School Reunion Classes '83-'84-'85

The Meridian High School Classes of '83, '84 & '85 will celebrate (or mourn, whichever the case may be) the 25th anniversary of our release (some call it graduation) from Meridian High School. The celebration will commence on the evening of Friday August 7th 2009 at Story Park in Meridian. The Meridian Fire Department has arranged to provide us a Salmon dinner (this has nothing to do with an annual event that they usually put on at the same park about the same time of the year...this is all about us). The fun will continue through the day on Saturday with all kinds of events planned (most of the stuff we planned we can't afford and the rest are illegal, so if you have any ideas....) to help us get to know this massive group of hefty, graying and balding people we vaguely recognize. It'll be fun. So mark the day, set the travel plans and be there.

Date: Saturday August 8th Settlers Park
Time: 11:00am – 1:00pm
Location: Corner of Meridian Rd. and Ustick Rd.
Cost: 0 Please bring a picnic lunch, chairs, blankets and umbrellas if you have them. We will provide some shade. This park has a wonderful water area for kids, huge playground, tennis courts, horseshoes, and baseball and basketball areas. This will be a great time for you to bring your kids and/or grandkids and have a fun day at the park. We are hoping to have the opportunity to offer you a chance to tour the new updated football stadium at the high school during this time but those plans have not been confirmed.

Saturday afternoon is yours to explore the valley, sleep, float the river, Beerfest at Julia Davis Park, golf, Bam Jam downtown Boise, catch up with family or just chill!

We have nothing formal planned for Saturday night however there will be a large group of MHS Alumni celebrating at the Doubletree Hotel Riverside (same location as the 10th and 20th) 2900 W. Chinden Blvd. Garden City, Idaho. (208)343-1871. They will reserve rooms at $52.00 per night and Club Max will have a DJ for dancing the night away!!

If you would like hotel information for Meridian, The Rama Inn is close to the speedway and their information is: 1019 S. Progress Ave. 877-574-2464

We look forward to seeing all of our classmates on August 7th and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Sybil Hosford-Goade or Tonia Trosclair-Kingston.

Saturday Suggestions

So we do not have all the details (or any of them worked out) for the Saturday activities for the reunion. If you have a better idea for something to do than standing around in the sun holding a drink and staring at all these people you think you might know, go ahead and add a comment letting us know what you think.
