The Reunion Planning Committee was established January 2, 2017 for the purpose of planning the 50th High School Reunion Activities for the Class of 1968 of The Dalles High School.


  1. Review of the Minutes from 6/2/2018, approved as written
  2. Finance:
    • Do we have a down payment bill for Reserving the Granada? Not yet
    • Other expenses at this point?
      • Roy Rowe request for reimbursement of $89.91 for 9 Clip Carousels for center-pieces at the Granada on Friday night. Receipts attached. Terry made out the reimbursement check to Roy Rowe. I more carousel is being bid on eBay right now – hopefully we will get it, for a total of 10. If we win, DiAnne will the submit cost next month.
      • No other expenses submitted
  3. Updates from:
  1. Judy Hicks-West, Chair Update Registration
    • Name tags
      • Agreed to purchase red ribbons with silver 50th Reunion writing to go below name tags.
      • Previously created buttons, with yearbook pictures, will be handed out also.
    • Registration Update
      • Registration forms are very slow coming in; to date we only have fourteen. A concern was expressed that if Registration don’t increase by August we may need to cancel or change one or more event as we have guaranteed deposits we cannot cover at this time.
  2. Mike Bartell, Chair Update Friday Night Activities
    • Nothing,  Mike is in Hawaii celebrating his wife’s retirement
  3. Terry Cole Woodhams, Chair Update Saturday Evening Dinner
    • No report
    • Terry will be creating a Program for the evening as the final schedule is determined
  4. DiAnne Fentress-Rowe, General Reunion Planning Committee Update
    • Financial Report
      • Cash on hand:  $124.22
      • Funds in the bank: $1217.00
      • Registrations to date:
        • Friday Night at the Granada  14 @  25  =  $350.00
        • Saturday Night at the Country Club  13 @  60  = $780.00
      • Class Picture 4  @  10    =  $40.00
      • Memory Book  5  @  20    =  $100.00
      • Future Reunion Donations = TBD
      • At this point we need to change our banking account from a personal account to a business account. We have just received non-profit status. On the account Karen Jolliffe will be signing the checks. The reason for this change is to accept the checks we are receiving which state “DHS Class of 1968”.
    • Data Base Updates have been sent to Judy, we still have about 18% of our classmates not yet found. Please look at the list of names on the bottom of the minutes to see the names of classmates we are still trying to find.
    • Joe Swick Wine Tasting
      • We are looking for a classmate in The Dalles or Hood River who would be willing to host the wine tasting at their home on Saturday afternoon.  Joe will demonstrate a few of his wines with cheese and crackers and wine will be for sale. Is there a classmate who would be willing to host this great event? If so, please contact DiAnne at and she will put you in contact with Becky Kribs Swick.
    • Granada décor update
      • Group agreed to using the picture carousels as décor during Friday evening. The carousels will be moved throughout the evening so classmates will have different pictures to look at during the evening.
    • Memory Book, updated information
      • The committee is working on how the Memory Book will be printed for the least cost to classmates. Kathy Catmull Garrett, Class of ’66, has offered to help and gave several suggestions when we contacted her during the meeting.
      • DiAnne and Teresa Goff Lindsay are working on the issue of the Memory Book grey colored pages not allowing print to show on Teresa’s Lynix system, once the grey is turned white print shows. DiAnne will change the grey to white and send them off to Teresa. Judy will send DiAnne the Memory Book submissions as soon as she receives them. Debbie Beall Tom submitted her Memory Book thoughts in paragraph story form in an email and this worked great.  If other classmates would like to do the same please do.
    • Confirmation of Jim Slusher and Phil Foote for MC’s at Saturday dinner
    • Contact with Mr. Nick Nelson, DHS Vice- Principal regarding a possible gift from our class to the high school
      • Mr. Nelson has provided us a list of possible options from which we can choose one as a donation from our class to the high school. His list was a bit more expensive than we may have funds to provide so we agreed to ask for a variety of ideas in the $500 to $1500 price range.
  5. Volunteer Update
    • Judy’s daughter and photo club friend are looking into the possibility of a photo booth at the Granada on Friday. They will also be taking the Class photo on Saturday at 5pm.
  6. Eagle’s RV Parking Lot – Scott  Baldwin
    • Scott has arranged with The Dalles Eagles Club for overnight parking for the duration of the Reunion (day before and day after, Thursday through Sun or Mon).
    • There will be room for 15-20 RV’s. The parking lot is not level so classmates will need to bring blocks, there are no showers or toilets provided. There are no hookups so you will be dry camping. Fresh water will be available to fill RV tanks. Tanks can be dumped at the Port on Klindt Drive. Information is attached. There is $15.00 per night for this campground.  For questions contact Scott, 503-385-6441. His email is
    • Scott said classmates will need to let him know at least two weeks before the Reunion if they want to use one of these RV spaces.
  7. Review of the Planning Calendar
    • July
      • Phone Tree. Judy will update the Data Base and send it to DiAnne via Google Docs. DiAnne will create 5-10 phone lists and ask classmates to contact those classmates in their areas who have not yet submitted their Registrations. This will be done by the end of July
      • Judy will send another paper Registration packet to those without email addresses this next week.
