UPPER MERION CLASS OF 1972 35-YEAR REUNION
Friday, July 13th, 2007 7 PM-Midnight
Rivercrest Golf Club
Our 35th high school reunion, which was planned by Annalie Hudson and Larry Carlin, took place in the summer of 2007 at the Rivercrest Golf Club. It was held on Friday evening, July 13th, from 7 p.m. until midnight. The ballroom featured a 1300 square foot dance floor with views of the golf course and waterfalls along the 18th hole.
The event included butlered hors d'oeuvres, non-alcoholic beverages, dinner selections, dessert and a coffee bar. A cash bar was available for alcohol and soft drinks. Instead of a deejay, we opted for a live band. The music of The Ken Battista Band kept the party hopping all night long. Ken, as well as drummer, Dave Ross, are from the UM class of 1971. Dave was also the drummer in the popular band Patchwork that performed at our senior prom and also used to play at the Lafayette Swim Club dances back in the day.
This was our first class reunion in ten years, and besides being a smashing success as well as a lot of fun, it was also a great opportunity to reconnect with classmates and start new friendships.
The cost was $72 per person. Spouses or significant others attended, as well as friends from other years.
We had a tremendous response and there was a good showing at the event. 175 people registered to attend. We were able to locate about 60% of the class and we still welcome any information leading to others. Below is the list of people that are still missing.
