Registration Packets - Everyone who has signed up for the Saturday night party will receive a registration packet at the first event they attend. The packet will contain your party's name tags, a reunion schedule, and other important information.

If you're coming to an event and are not signed up for Saturday night, non-personalized, temporary, stick on name tags will be available.

You can pay for your tickets to the Vince's Lunch and Football game at any event. You can pay with cash (exact change would be nice), Check, Credit or Debit card. Yes, we even have one of the new Chip Readers.

Photos - We've created a shared photo album on Facebook that we can use for sharing reunion photos. Since basically everyone has a camera in the Smartphone these days, there's no point in hiring a photographer any more or giving out disposable cameras. The Album is here.

If you would like to share your reunion photos and you are on Facebook, let Bill know and he can add you as a contributor. It's necessary to extend permissions individually to keep out Spammers and other evil doers.

    We were originally told this was the homecoming game, but the school pulled the old switcheroo on us. It is a home game playing cross town rivals Ontario High. it should be a lot of fun, even though Ontario High didn't open until after we graduated!

    Do Not Enter through the main gate. Tickets are $7.00 and will be collected as you enter the field. This is a donation, half will go to the ASB (Student Body) and half to the athletic program. We'll have a special section and will enter together, go to the 50 yard like for a photo while the announcer introduces us, then we'll go to our special section seats.

    Our seats will likely be up by the press box. If anyone has limited mobility and needs to use the elevator (yes, they have one now!), Please let Bill know before the event so it can be arranged.

    - From the Decoration Chair, Ema Kerr True:
    Classmates have contacted me wanting to be apart of decorating for Saturday night event I'd like to make mention of that to say thank you and besides needing all the help I can get it's just going to be so much fun to hang together  I so look forward to seeing all my buddies as y'all are very special to me cheers CHS 66 to our big 50!

  • 6:00 PM to 11:30 PMGala 50th Reunion Dinner Dance in the DoubleTree Ballroom. We have the Lake Gregory and Lake Silverwood Rooms (made into one room). The space holds 260 for a banquet, so we won't be cramped as in past years.

    DRESS: Some members of the Reunion Committee (and several classmates) have expressed their opinion that since this is THE BIG 5-0, it should be an upscale “dressier” event. Others have the view that a more relaxed atmosphere is in order. So, here’s the deal, use your good judgment and wear whatever you feel is appropriate and makes you feel comfortable. We fully expect to see everything from suits and cocktail dresses to casual shirts and trousers. No one should feel out of place.

    When you arrive: Please pick up your special Classmate's Gift and your Registration Packet, if you didn't pick it up at an earlier event. 

    We will have tables for the display of your Memorabilia from your years at Chaffey, Jr. High schools, and Elementary schools. Please bring your mementos to share. Just make sure that they're labelled so you can get them back. For paper items, sheet protectors or plastic bags are handy to protect your items. Just be sure to pick them up before you leave!

    Enjoy your favorite beverage at the no-host bar and enjoy socializing with your classmates. There will be ample time to socialize, table hop, and even dance before and after dinner.

    We will have 2 no host bars set up to avoid the lines we had in prior years. We will have liquor, beer, wine, soft drinks, and bottled water for purchase. Prices range from $10.00 for a Gold Martini down to $3.25 for soft drinks. Beer and wine are in the $6.25 to $7.00 range.

    No outside food or drinks are allowed. We can arrange corkage if you'd like to bring your own bottle of wine, but it has to be done in advance. Contact Bill if you're interested. 

    We will not have a big program to allow for maximum socializing. Music will be a playlist of songs from when we were at Chaffey from the 62 to 66 timeframe. Dancing is encouraged.

    Plated dinner will be served at 6:40 PM. We're doing plated service as recommended by the most recent class reunions, it's also less expensive to do this than a buffet.
