MINUTES: GHS1957 Class Reunion 2004 Committee Planning Meeting held May 4, 2004, Phila., PA.

Classmate Attendees (married names): Sandi Berger (Rubin), Richard Cohen, Pat Dotson (Massie), Seymour "Cy" Hoffman, Lyn Hurst (Teel), Linda Kosmin (Langford), Arlene Leonard (Caplin),Myrna Polak (Deaux), LeRoy Potts. Guest: George Langford

Following Dutch treat dinner, the meeting was called to order by Chair Seymour Hoffman at 7:30p.m.

TREASURER: Sandi reported on income and expenditures since the last meeting. She also noted that several classmates in addition to Committee members had submitted their registration money early.

REGISTRATION: (1) Owing to some bulk mailing glitches, it was decided to extend the early bird registration date from May 15 to June 15, 2004. Notices approved by Cy will need to be posted on bulletin board, on the GHS57 Website, and via email to classmates with known email service; (2) The reunion registration form posted on the GHS57 Website should substitute the email address for Nick rather than use his phone number. The phone number was on the paper reunion notice mailed to classmates. Because the Web is open to the entire world, the use of an email address is preferable; (3) The final bio date remains July 1, 2004 and the final registraton date remains September 10, 2004.

MEMORY BOOKLET: Linda circulated two bio samples that Lois Addison had sent in order to give Committee members an idea of what was possible. Lois also recommended that the booklet cover look like our yearbook cover.

MISSING CLASSMATES: (1) Cy inquired about ways to identify wherabouts of those people not yet located. Linda suggested USSEARCH, since all the online phone directories have already been tapped by Lois Addison and Linda; (2) Cy suggested that it could be helpful for all to contact classmates we are in touch with regularly to inquire if they did indeed receive reunion invitations by mail; and, if not, (a) to verify correct postal address and then (b) to alert Pat Dotson, who is coordinator of reunion invitation mailings, so that a new packet can be mailed out pronto.

REUNION EVENT: Arlene volunteered to work at the registration table at the actual event.

DONATIONS/BOOKLET ADVERTISEMENTS: (1) Depending upon any surplus, the reunion committee agreed that it would be desirable to make a suitable donation to GHS in the name of the CLASS OF 1957. One way to ensure a surplus, is by individul contributions. Another way is by placing ads in the reunion memory booklet (i.e., business card size $25.00; 1/2 page $100.00; full page $175.00; in-side back cover full page $200.00; outside back page $250.00). Arrangements for these camera ready ads need to be made with Sandi Berger no later than July 1, 2004.

NEXT PLANNING MEETING: Wednesday, June 23, 2004 at 6:30pm Dutch Treat Dinner at Tiffany Diner (Roosevelt Blvd and Welsh Rd). Please RSVP to Linda no later than June 18, 2004 if you are planning on attending this important meeting.

Respectfully submitted,
Linda Kosmin Langford
