Glenbard Class of 1958 60th Reunion Agenda 

Dear Classmates,

Time is really flying by and our 60th Reunion is rapidly approaching. As we did on our 55th Reunion, we are not planning on doing memory books or other features. However, if you are planning to participate in the parade and can still fit in your t-shirt bring it. Also, if you still have your name tags from the 50th, bring those. We have concentrated on planning the activities for Friday and Saturday nights and for participating in the Homecoming Parade on Saturday morning. You can go on a school tour or attend the football game on your time, too. The following is the schedule of planned events and their costs:

Friday, September 21: The Friday Night Get-Together will be held from 6:00-10:00 PM in the remodeled Clubhouse at Village Links Golf Club, 485 Winchell Way, Glen Ellyn. It is located off of South Park Blvd. We will be serving buffet style with a large selection of hot and cold hors d’oeuvres. There will be a cash bar for beverages. Spouses and guests are welcome and the dress is casual. The cost for this event is $40.00 per person.

Saturday, September 22: For those of you that want to participate in the Homecoming Parade, it would begin at 10:00 AM and depart from Forest Glen School as in the past. There will be a vehicle available for those who prefer to ride. School tours will begin at the end of the parade at the school’s main entrance. The varsity football game generally begins around 2:00 PM.

Saturday Evening: The Saturday Evening Dinner will be held at the Holiday Inn, 150 S. Gary Ave., Carol Stream, from 6:00-10:00 PM. This is the same venue as our successful 50th Reunion event except it will be in a banquet room not the tent. It will be a buffet served sit-down dinner with a variety of hors d’oeuvres and homestyle food choices. The room will be set up to allow more chances to visit with a greater number of classmates. There will be a cash bar for beverages. Spouses and guests are welcome. Dress is business casual. The price for this event is $60 per person.

Sunday, September 23: While there are no formal plans for this day, we’re sure many of you will want to be at the Holiday Inn for breakfast to say your final goodbyes.

Hotel Accommodations: We have been working with the Holiday Inn & Suites in Carol Stream and they have agreed to the following group rates: Standard Rooms $99.95. This compares to the rates we had for the 50th of $90 to $125. These rates will be good for the evenings of 9/20 through 9/23 for those of you who want to come early. They will honor these rates on reservations placed before 9/5/2018 but you should make your reservations sooner rather than later. The Holiday Inn is located at 150 S. Gary Ave., Carol Stream, IL 60188. To receive the reduced rates you need to place your reservation at the local Holiday Inn. The local phone number is 630-665-3000. Make sure you tell them you're with the Glenbard West Class of 1958. Use Group Code: GWR to receive the discounted price. You can also register online at www.holidayinn.com/chi-carol. Enter dates for staying then enter group code.

Distinguished Service Award and one of our classmates, Lester Monson, was included in this honor. In addition to Lester the first class of Distinguished Alumni included: Caryn Caposoto, Tom Gilardi, Nancy Utley Jacobs, Bobby Rahal and Steve Capel for his brother Bruce who gave his life for his country
