Nothing Is Constant, Except Change
My Fellow Patriots,
Well, here we go again! We hope this is our final change notification to a fun, safe, and casual event to celebrate the fifty years since we walked the halls of Patrick Henry.
Here is the scoop. The event will be held the weekend of September 25th and 26th at Singing Hills Golf Resort. We have secured a nice, open green area, where there is a large flat space with the hotel rooms surrounding it. We have plenty of room to spread out, and masks will be provided. Also, hand sanitizers will be available. I know that this is not a first choice, however, it is a State requirement for health and safety.
Some people have expressed an uncomfortable feeling about being close to other people. THIS IS ESPECIALLY FOR YOU. To maximize social distancing, you can reserve your own room on either the first or second floor surrounding the area, and you can remain on your patio/balcony. With your own room, you can easily maintain a safe distance, have conversations from the patio/balcony, and/or venture onto the grass area to join the group. There are 32 available rooms surrounding the grassy area.
The Friday event will be held on the large patio of suite #150. We will be serving pre-packaged sandwiches, sides, and/or salads of your choice, along with packaged snacks and something sweet. There will be an order form coming later in July. Beer, wine, soft drinks, and water will be provided and included in the ticket price. The price for this is $25 and can be purchased from HERE.
The Saturday event will be held on the large grass area with tables spread out all over the grass. The resort is limiting the number of people who can attend so buy your tickets soon. This will be a catered affair as the banquet kitchen is not open at this time. We are working with caterers now. A vegan option will be available, and we will need to know how many request this in advance. A vegan request form will be sent out as we get closer to the event. A hosted bar with cocktails, beer, wine, soft drinks, and water will be provided and is included in the cost of the reunion ticket. We are working on a “signature” non-alcoholic drink as well. There will be an area honoring classmates who are no longer with us and an area for group/couple/individual photos. We have the great honor of having a very experienced DJ who is the daughter of one of our classmates and also a professional photographer who works frequently with Patrick Henry athletes.
Rooms are available at the hotel for $159 per night. Please call the hotel directly at 619-219-6028 to make your reservation as quickly as possible to ensure that you have a room for your stay. Make sure you let them know you are with the Patrick Henry group. There is a restaurant, Red Tail Grill, on site by the golf course that will be serving breakfast at your own cost with an open patio for seating.
It is important to make your room reservations ASAP to guarantee that you have a room. Food must be ordered by September 20, 2020. Please purchase your tickets by that time. We will keep you updated as we get closer.
There are a couple more things to say. First, in the event that the government decrees that our reunion cannot go on as planned, ticket fees will be either refunded or held for whenever this reunion does occur based upon your choice. Secondly, we are not a company that does this for a living, and at times, not even for fun. Attending this reunion is a choice that you are making during COVID-19. When you register at the entry table, you will also need to sign a waiver indicating that you are aware of this, and it is your choice is to be there. The team is taking precautions to make this a safe event and want everyone to be happy that they are attending. Also, this may or may not be true, but tequila cures everything!
Finally, we have a little interesting information. The children of the resort’s general manager are also Patrick Henry grads. Also, our contact for the company providing the food for Friday night is a Patrick Henry grad.
Let’s do this Patriots!!! As the song goes, “See You In September!”
