A big thanks to Kari Adams Urban for finding, scanning and sharing these great vintage photos from the Lake Highlands High School Class of 1983. Last week here on the blog we shared fun shots from Lisa Jagmin Andrews, the LHHS staffer also raising her family back here in LH. Both women say they look forward to welcoming old friends to reunion activities in November.

Sam Schlehuber, chairman of the reunion committee, is so sure his former classmates will have a blast he’s come up with a novel –and risky – idea. Sam is offering a money-back guarantee. Buy your ticket, just $50 per person for a weekend of fun, and, if you don’t enjoy yourself, you’ll get a refund. Just like that.

“These days, it’s not easy to get people to buy into the idea of attending reunions,” Sam told me. “With Facebook and other social media, people feel like they already know what their old friends are up to. We used to have to track people down to get their phone number or email. Catching up with old friends you hadn’t heard from in years was a big deal. Some people just don’t feel the need anymore.”

“We felt like we needed to be creative this year, especially since so many people live in Lake Highlands or have stayed connected online. We want to assure people that these events will be enjoyable, that they’ll be glad they attended.”

Graduates of 1983 were part of the state football championship in 1981, and they’ll celebrate November 1 at the Wildcat/J.J. Pearce game at 7:30 p.m. They’ve reserved the Party Deck under the press box, and they will serve light snacks and non-alcoholic beverages. Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at the game that evening. Children are welcome. Reserved season tickets may be exchanged (plus $2) at the ticket window, which opens at 6:45.
