Ifyou know of someone who did not receive an invite, please send a copy of this link to them so that they can RSVP for our reunion. That link is: https://www.eventcreate.com/jhs1971-50   Stay tuned!
Frequently Asked Questions

Nicole Papes, Director of Event Planning and Operations - 303-273-4025

This block of rooms will only be held until August 12, 2021, so hurry and get your reservation made. More information on hotel: Denver Marriott West Information 
Can I share this website with other classmates?
Yes!  Simply copy this link and send it other classmates:
https://www.eventcreate.com/jhs1971-50​​​
 Do I purchase two tickets if I am coming alone to both the main event AND the picnic?  Can I bring guests to the picnic?
UPDATE - as of 7/7/2021, the cost is $0 per person, but an RSVP is required for each person attending the main event.  You are welcome to bring guests to the picnic, your own beverages and a potluck dish to be shared with no additional reservation; again, however, any guests at the main event require their own individual ticket.
Why do I have to pay for the reunion so early?
As with most events this size, the planners are required to sign a contract with the venue regarding guaranteed number of attendees, cost, etc.  In this case, we had to sign a contract that was further complicated by a possible maximum number of people allowed due to the current Covid restrictions.  In April, 2021, the maximum number of people that we were allowed to have at our event was 120; due to COVID restrictions being relaxed, we are allowed to have more!   As noted in several locations on this website, a classmate, who shall remain anonymous, is funding our reunion…but we already had most of the attendees pay for this event. The $40 per person that was paid will be refunded on the evening of the main event.

If you will not be able to attend, your “no” RSVP is also requested as soon possible so that we can appropriately plan for our reunion.

The  deadline for your RSVP is now August 1.
Is having a potluck picnic the best thing to do, given Covid?
That is an extremely difficult question.  CDC has said “...There is no evidence that people can get COVID-19 from eating food. However, sharing utensils and congregating around food service areas may present risks...”.  The reunion committee has agreed that it is too early to make any call on this question.  Instead, we will be monitoring the situation and send a message out to all attendees shortly before the event.  Our answer is based on what the experts are telling us now, and that answer will likely change for better or worse.  
What happens to any funds left over after the reunion?
A donation will be made to an organization yet to be determined. 
If I have already paid to come to the main event, can I add a guest later?
Yes.  Simply enter the guest as a separate entry, using the guest’s email address when completing the registration (i.e., the same email address cannot be used once registration has been completed).
How do I pay for the reunion?
A classmate, who shall remain anonymous, has stepped forward and will now be paying for our entire Reunion! As such, no payments are due other than if you will be playing in the golf event. If you have previously paid to attend the reunion, you will receive a refund on the evening of the event.
if you have questions on how payment works, send an email to the Reunion Committee ([email protected]).
Who should I contact if I have any further questions or concerns?
Your Reunion Committee can be reached via email:
[email protected]
Please RSVP by 
AUGUST 1, 2021
Registration is required for each attendee.  And, even if you will unfortunately not be able to attend, your RSVP is appreciated.
