Class of 1968
Upcoming Events:

Bean Dinner at Westgate Park:
June 24th, 2017, 10am to 5pm. We will have a table to let our Classmates know what is going on and to hopefully find some of our Lost Classmates. After the Bean Dinner we have arranged to meet at the Moose Lodge at 1444 Demorest Road for food and drinks.  They are having a $10.00 dinner for those who are hungry.  Everyone is invited and if you are not a Moose member, just let them know that you are guests of Dave Adams and that you are with the West High School Class of 1968.  There will be a DJ and other activities.  Drink tickets can be purchased at the door.
WE HAD A GREAT TIME AT THE BEAN DINNER!
THANKS TO ALL OF OUR CLASSMATES WHO STOPPED BY!

2018 Cruise:
Classmates have been asking for a cruise and we have chosen with next year’s Buckeye Cruise for Cancer, Feb 21st-26th, 2018. There are still a few more rooms available for the Large Oceanview Staterooms ($949 per person).  All the rest of the ship is sold out.  It is Urgent that you act immediately because these tickets will sell out fast.  The Travel Partners of Dublin are the ones who are handling the ticket sales. Call: 614-792-6204. When you book your cruise tell them that you are with the West High Class of 1968.  We have chosen the 5:30 seating time for dinner and they will try to get all of us seated together for dinner.  You may choose a different time if you'd like.  If you would like a different room ask them to put you on the Waiting List for that room.  Between now and February there will probably be some people whose plans change unexpectedly and will try to sell their cabins to someone on the Wait List.
An email was sent to our classmates that we have contact information on.  If you did not receive an e-mail please let us know and provide us with your contact information so we can add you to our database.  Invite your friends and help us get the information out to your classmates.  The more the merrier!  You can also go online to Buckeye Cruise for Cancer to order your tickets at http://www.buckeyecruise.com/cruiseNews.asp

There will be a lot of famous Buckeyes joining us for the cruise including; Brutus, Archie Griffin, and A.J. Hawk to name a few. The 2018 cruise makes stops in Key West and Labadee, Haiti (a Royal Caribbean private island).  We hope you will join us.

50th Class Reunion
Our 50th Class Reunion dinner/event is set for July 14th, 2018 at the Villa Milano at 1630 Schrock Road. We have the Grand Ballroom which will hold up to 400 people.  Since we have access to such a large room we are not limiting this party to only the class of ‘68.  We would be pleased if West High Classmates from the Classes of ‘67 and ‘69 could attend. The more people we get, the better deal we will be getting from Villa Milano! We are also looking for a venue where we can meet on Friday night, July 13th. Please stay tuned.

Class of 1963
Celebrates 50 years since their Senior Homecoming


Most who either rode on or walked along with their parade float stopped for a photo!

On September 28 we held our first 50th Class Reunion event at the West High Homecoming.
We started the evening by participating in the 5:30p.m. Homecoming Parade. We had our own float in the parade, joining the West Band, Weskets, JROTC, Cheerleaders, and Homecoming king and queen candidates as we rode around the Westgate area.

We wore specially printed T-shirts denoting our 50th Class Reunion. We will sell these again ($10 each) at our Friday evening Mixer during our June 2013 Class reunion.

Many of our classmates joined the West Alumni Band as they marched from West down the alley behind Magly Field to the south end of the stadium. Our group also joined the Alumni Band on the field prior to the game as the Stars Spangled Banner was played.

During the game we sat together in the Magly Field stands. The football game announcer recognized our group before the game started, during the game, and once again just after half-time. Our 50th Class Reunion Chair, Dottie Clark, even joined the current West cheerleaders on the track when they came down to our area to cheer. We now know that if Dottie had not been in the band, her skills could have been utilized as a cheerleader!

About a dozen of our classmates joined the combined West Band and the Alumni Band during the half-time show when they performed Script 'W' and played the
Alma Mater.

We stayed at the game until after half-time when we moved our celebration to O'Charley's in the Georgesville Rd. Shopping Center.

We remind all classmates to check out our Facebook page facebook.com/WestHighSchool50thReunion1963
We hope you all will 'like' our Facebook site. It will be an easy way to connect with your classmates before the reunion and afterwards. We will post updates to our reunion plans both here and on our Facebook page.
