The Reunion Committee has started to gather together. If you would like to join us on the committee, please Email us at:    This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
 
Using the HFHS'68 CONTACT FORM on this page, please fill out the form and send us your complete contact information: First, Middle, Last (Maiden and Married names for females), full address, home and cell phones, and email address(es). If you are still in contact with other classmates, please forward this webpage to them, and request that they complete this form so we can update our database.   ALSO: PLEASE EMAIL us all of your contact information so we may update our HFHS Class of 1968 database.
  
If you know of any Classmates who have passed away and are not on the list on the "IN MEMORY" tab above, please send us that information.
   
                                                                       Hope to hear from you soon.    
   
In addition to the time that will be spent renewing old friendships, the following are the plans so far, for your enjoyment at the reunion:
 
We are in the process of negotiating with FIVE downtown Detroit Hotels to give all out-of-towners, as well as us locals, as many choices as possible, including locations and differing room rates.  Rooms are being booked in blocks.  Hotels will be taking reservations for these blocks of rooms on a first-come first-served basis.  So, when we send out an email with Hotel choices, please make your reservations as soon as possible.  If demand is high, we should be able to have more rooms released to us.  Most reservations will require a two-night stay paid in advance, for Friday Night, Aug 24th and Saturday Night, Aug 25th.  If anyone wishes to stay longer at one of the Downtown Hotels, make those arrangements with the Hotel of your choice.  Should you want to stay and visit with family, feel free to make reservations on your own for where, when and how long, at your convenience.
 
Based on feedback from Classmates living locally who would like to stay Downtown on Saturday and check out Sunday, some Hotels will be able to provide a Saturday Night Only room option - this will allow you to hang out with people you haven't seen in many, many years...... if you wish to choose this option, you'll be able to spend all day Saturday Downtown and plan things to do with long lost friends during the day (meet for lunch, short tours, relax, etc.)       Staying over on Saturday will also afford you the opportunity to come back to the hotel, get refreshed and arrive at the Cruise Dock at 6:00pm (see information below)
 
It will also let you party all night long, get a good night's rest, and then join us on Sunday. Again, more details to follow.   

Fri,  August 24th, 2018  -  casual get together at a fantastic place - this is an RSVP event only, with payment ($TBD) to paid in advance with Dinner Cruise payment
- ( all events are casual dress )  ALL CLASSMATES are invited, but advanced reservations and pre-payment are necessary.  Based on the as yet to be determined location, there may be a limit on how many people may attend.
 
 
Sat, August 25, 2018  -  on your own during the day.  plan ahead via email with friends you haven't seen for a while to visit places that bring back great memories, meet for lunch or whatever you want to do.  a visit to Belle Isle, Eastern Market, Greektown, (did we mention the 3 casinos?); rides on the People Mover and the new Q-Line up and down Woodward.........or whatever you decide.  Please just make sure you read the next paragraph so you can be where and when you have to be for dinner..........

 
Our plans for Dinner on Saturday night are to go Cruisin'....a big change from our previous reunions. And if you think we're talking about Woodwarding or the Annual Woodward Dream Cruise, you would be mistaken. We no longer have the wonderful Bob-Lo Boats to take us all on a Saturday Nite Cruise, but we do have the Detroit Princess to take us on a fabulous Dinner Cruise on the Detroit River. We'll be meeting at the dock of The Detroit Princess Riverboat at 6:00pm. 
 
Rooftop Parking ($10) on top of Cobo Hall is available and convenient.  Take the SOUTHEAST elevator or stairs down to ground level - the Dock will be on the Riverfront and the Riverboat will be on the River. If you are staying Downtown, a 10 minute or less ride on the People Mover will get you there in style.  
Detailed information on the Cruise and Dinner to come
 

Sun, August 26, 2018  -  On Sunday, August 26th, everyone who didn't fall off the boat on the Dinner Cruise will have the opportunity to sleep in. But not TOO long, as we are planning something for Sunday as well, still to be determined.
More information on this will be posted as further information is received
 
 
COSTS  -   We have not yet determined what the total cost per person will be.  However, as we will be making a "digital reunion book," the cost will be the same for classmates and guests.  If you plan on bringing someone, please do so, but be sure to include their name(s) when you send in your payment.  The Coast Guard requires all Passengers to have valid US ID, as well as being registered upon boarding the Boat.   Perhaps a friends from othe HFHS Classes might enjoy coming, as well as old friends from the great neighborhoods we grew up in.   (Adults Only - Over 21 Years of Age)  When the time comes, please send in one check for the total amount for all people you register, as well as for any additional events that you wish to attend.
 
 
MISSING CLASSMATES:   We will continue to look for "missing classmates" and will be sending you a list of them once you complete the Contact Form.  If you are still in touch with anyone who is on our missing list, please send them the link to our Website and have them complete the Contact Form.  If you wish to contact us directly, please send an Email to:  This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
 
Also, if you know of any classmates who have passed away, please send us their names.  We will be creating a special memorial section in the digital reunion book.

If you cannot or do not plan to attend, we respect your decision, and we will mark our records as such, but we would still appreciate you Emailing us all of your current contact information..  We also would like you to advise us if you DO NOT want us to share your e-mail address with your classmates.  As some Classmates may be coming by themselves, they might want to find a roommate and share the hotel cost.  Its a wonderful and easy way to stay in touch.
