Hello Class of 1970!
This is our first video promoting our 50th Reunion! Please enjoy this and stay tuned for more to come!
As for our payment portal, we have two options available for those to choose from. If you have paid the initial fee of $25/ticket, then you can pay the additional $10 going towards the new $35/ticket fee. If you haven't purchased your dinner ticket yet, there is a $35 fee that is available for you. You can find these payment options on the site's Home Page and in the Donation Center located on the left side's column.
Thank you all!
PAYMENT PORTAL UPDATE
Thank you for your excitement and outreach. We've received some questions regarding the lack of a payment portal for the dinner taking place on August 5. Our team is currently working on creating a solution for this issue. We will try to make this process as simple as possible. Once a payment portal is up, we will notify everyone via email about its location on the site.
Thank you all for your patience.
Hello Highland Class of 1970!
My, what a time we’ve had since then. The past two years have been difficult for everyone, so we hope this email finds you spry and well. As you know, this marks the 52nd year since we’ve graduated. The reunion committee wants to make this event for everyone in attendance a joyous and memorable celebration. Since our plans for our 50th were spoiled by the pandemic, we want to inform you of the changes that have taken place since our earlier correspondence.
DINNER AT THE SALT LAKE COUNTRY CLUB: AUGUST 5, 2022
The initial cost for dinner was $25/person. The Salt Lake Country Club has increased our dinner ticket price to $35/person. We ask that those that have already paid the $25 fee, pay an additional $10. The committee would like to let everyone know that the chosen menu and included gratuity are double the price of our $35 ticket fee ($70). We’ve had some wonderful donors commit their funds, reducing costs for those attending. The reunion committee would like to extend our immense gratitude to these donors and are gladly accepting any additional funds. Please contact Kent Kirkham (801-541-4688) if you would like to help. The event will take place August 5 (Friday), beginning with a social hour at 6:00 PM and dinner commencing at 7:00 PM.
MEET AND MINGLE AT HIGHLAND HIGH: AUGUST 6, 2022
This event is free for all members and partners of our class. This event was initially planned at Sugarhouse Park, but has since moved to Highland High. Committee members feel that the Meet and Mingle would be a great opportunity to relive old memories and reacquaint with friends! The event will be on August 6 (Saturday) at 6:00 PM. Complimentary snacks and waters will be available.
We’ll be updating our website with videos and pictures that we’re excited to share. Be sure to pass this letter along to anyone you know from our class and show them our website - www.highland70.com. You can either sign them up if you know their email address, or invite them to create their own profile.
We are indebted and owe a great deal of gratitude to our classmate, Fred Behle. Fred oversaw our website creation and development as the lead administrator. We sadly lost Fred to his battle with cancer last year and he will be dearly missed. We have hired a young fellow, Stewart Bounds, to oversee web development. Please address any questions or concerns to Stewart via the website link above and we’ll answer them in short order.
Many have participated on our committee during the last three years. We are excited to see everyone attend our historic event. Go Rams!

Barely the day started and
it's already six in the evening.
Barely arrived on Monday
and it's already Friday.
.. and the month is already over.
.. and the year is almost over.
.. and already 40, 50 or 60 years
of our lives have passed.
.. and we realize that we lost
our parents, friends.
.. and we realize it's too late
to go back.
So.. Let's try, despite
everything, to enjoy
the remaining time.
Let's keep looking for
activities that we like.
Let's put some color in
Let's smile at the little
things in life that put
balm in our hearts.
And despite everything,
we must continue to enjoy
with serenity this time we

I'm doing it after.
I'll say after.
I'll think about it after.
We leave everything for
later like ′′ after ′′ is ours.
Because what we don't
understand is that:
Afterwards, the coffee
afterwards, priorities change.
Afterwards, the charm is
Afterwards, health passes.
Afterwards, the kids grow up.
Afterwards parents get old.
Afterwards, promises are
Afterwards, the day becomes

And then it's often too late.
So.. Let's leave nothing for

best moments, the best
experiences, best friends,
the best family.
The day is today. The
moment is now.
We are no longer at the
age where we can afford
to postpone what needs
to be done right away."
It Looks Like An Eternity,
But It's A Short Trip,
