Preparations are underway for a Murrah High School Mega Reunion for the graduates of Murrah High Classes of ’68, ‘69 and ’70 and their guests. Note: Open to other Murrah classes, but must pre-register by June 1, 2012.
The Reunion is a two-night event. You can attend one or both events. Each event is priced separately.
Friday Night, June 15, 2012
Friday night will feature smaller gatherings. The classes of '68 and '69 will have a combined gathering at the Fairview Inn. The Class of '70 will have a 60th Birthday! Those details will soon follow as we update our e-mail list.
Saturday Night, June 16, 2012
This will be a Joint Gathering of all classes at The Country Club of Jackson. The Planning Committee is requesting early registration. Please register at your earliest opportunity. This will help predict numbers and secure arrangements. From that information we can prepare nametags, menus, facility size, etc.
$50 per person, $100 per couple or $55 per person at the door
Check-in & Socializing: 5:30pm - Heavy hors d’oeuvres buffet and a cash bar
Saturday night dress is dressy casual. (collared shirt, no tie)
You say... why now?
Answer: This is the year none of the classes are celebrating a 45th, much less a 50th! This is the time of year MOST requested (before the "heat of the summer," but during vacation time)... and most of all... We are realizing the loss of many classmates. We want a time to reunite, reminisce, and visit "across the board." If the timing is not "optimum" for you, please know we want you to make a special effort to be with us.

glance back on a year once part of you.
Let it tumble down the dusty halls of your mind.
Recall the warmth of those halls after the parking lot haul.
In the beginning there was revolution;
but the revolution was without form and void.
The pep rallies; mustering spirit and stamina for the test,
and wondering now and then if it was all worth it.
There were football games; you wore your new sweater,
shouted hoarse, memorized numbers and positions, won and lost.
You made friends and lost friends, and maybe didn't bother with either;
for as the air grew colder maybe you did too... just a little.
The Routine consumed you, Senior or not. The weekends Krystalized into
frenzied, freewheeling nights, awakening to lazy, do-nothing-but-something
afternoons. The questions you asked weren't always answered, and what
you sought wasn't always found. It was this and these that made "69" different.
