“How often do you get to go to your 50th high school reunion?”

Our 50th Reunion

Saturday, September 30, 2023

6:00 - 10:00 pm

A fantastic Maggianos multi-course Family Style dinner, with music and perhaps a few surprises. A great venue that mixes class with comfort.

Our Saturday night Reunion really is “The Main Event”. While there are several activities over the reunion weekend, most of our classmates only come to the Saturday night gathering. This is your best chance to reconnect with people.

Performing at “The Main Event”

Gary Smallwood

A musical legend in Loudoun County, Gary is known for his faithful renditions of 60’s and 70’s music. He has played alongside such acts as Robin Trower, Molly Hatchet, Marshall Tucker Band, The Outlaws, Bret Michaels, and Michael Fath. Gary is a full-time musician, playing over 200 shows a year. We are honored to have him play at our reunion.

There might be classmates who are on a fixed income or a tight budget and find it difficult to afford coming to the reunion.

There are three ways you can

Help Make This Reunion A Success

   1) Get the word out to classmates and encourage them to come. How often do you get to go to your 50th high school reunion?

   2) Come to Saturday night’s “The Main Event” at Maggianos. We’ll have some other activities over the weekend, but Saturday night is the real deal actual reunion. So please help us out by purchasing a ticket and attending “The Main Event”.

   3) Purchase your ticket early. Registering early helps our reunion committee with the planning. When we know how many people to expect at certain events we can hopefully make sure we have enough space and resources to accommodate everyone. The more lead time we have to make those kinds of decisions, the better.
