Fundraising Challenge - Class of 1976 Reunion

   The Grand Island High School Class of 1976 is having a 35th reunion at the Grand Island Moose, 2524 Grand Island Blvd. on Saturday, July 2nd starting at 6pm. A cash bar will be available and hot dogs and hamburgers for sale. Lee Zeplowitz has issued a challenge to fellow classmates to raise funds for the Grand Island Foundation for Education. At the 30th reunion Lee donated $1000 and the class matched it to raise $2000 for the foundation. This year he is donating $1000 and if the class matches it he will give an additional $100. If the class raises $1500 he will donate $250, and for an additional $2000, it will be $500! There will not be a mailing, so make sure you tell all your fellow class of 76ers about the event.



Class of 1976 Reunion, You Gotta Go! - Update

   The GIHS class of 1976 35th reunion will be here before you know it. The casual reunion will be held at the Grand Island Moose, 2524 Grand Island Blvd. on Saturday, July 2nd starting at 6pm. A cash bar will be available and hot dogs and hamburgers for sale. Greg DeMike is in charge of music again as he always does a fabulous job putting together a playlist from back in the day. There is a fire pit in the back of the building we can use, so throw some logs in your trunk and we can have a mini bonfire when it gets dark. That is of course if we aren't all sleeping by 9pm! Folding chairs might also be useful. Just come out and have a good time!

If you have not received either in the last week you can go to the invite posted here on Isledegrande.com.

Buffalo Launch Club Chosen For 30th Reunion - 2005

   Our first meeting was attended by a small group who decided on Sunday, July 2, 2006 as the date of our 30th reunion. The next decision was the place and the Buffalo Launch Club was chosen by a group of voters who responded to an email. The view of the Niagara River was the deciding factor for most. Our next meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, October 18, 2005 will be held at the BLC to look over the menus and possibly divvy up the names of classmates to find emails or addresses to send invites. If you have any questions or comments please contact Jodi Hayes Robinson at jodi@giecom.net and I will pass along to the planning committee. We would love to have your help.




Start-up Meeting Tuesday, September 20, 2005

   It's that time again! I am starting to get a persistent trickle of e-mails asking about the Class of 1976 30th reunion. So I guess....here we go again! First meeting will be held at the Holiday Inn Lobby on Tuesday, September 20, 2005 at 7:00 p.m. I hope we get lots of new faces to help. Contact Jodi Hayes Robinson at jodi@giecom.net if you have any questions.
   For those who cannot make the meeting, please email and let me know your ideas so that I can pass them along at the meeting. Most of the classes have been having their reunions as close to July 4th as possible. In the past few years a lot of classes have had their ice-breaker at the Holiday Inn's Friday night "Jazz on the River" at no cost, cash bar and food available.
We are in need of addresses so invitations can be sent, please email to jodi@giecom.net.
