Our 25th Reunion Weekend

This is a milestone year for us.  We graduated high school a quarter century ago.  Just let that sink in for a moment.

Whether you loved high school or hated it, you are an integral part of the Carlisle High School Class of 1990, and as such, we want you with us in November.  Most of us haven't seen each other in 25 years, and we have plenty of catching up to do, so buy your tickets, gather you family, and get yourself to Carlisle on November 27th and join us for an entire weekend of events.  You won't be sorry . . .

Our 25th Reunion weekend will take place from November 27-29, 2015, in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.  We will be hosting events throughout the weekend, including a Friday night movie, Saturday morning school tour, Saturday afternoon bowling, Saturday evening party, and Sunday morning brunch.  All events except the Saturday night party will be open to all ages, so bring come back to Carlisle and enjoy a weekend of nostalgia and reacquaintance.  You may choose to participate in as many or as few events as you like, but we hope to see everyone at the Saturday night party, which is our main event. 

Welcome Event:  Friday Night Movie: The Breakfast Club

November 27th, 2015
6:30 PM--Welcome Reception
7:30 PM--Movie  Showing

The Class of 1990 will be hosting The Breakfast Club, the iconic John Hughes teen classic, at the Carlisle Theater, 4o West High Street, in downtown Carlisle on Friday night.  The movie is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and is being sponsored by our classmate, Stephanie Patterson Gilbert, through her business Georgie Lou's Retro Candy, which is steps away from the theater.  We will be reserving the balcony at the theater for our class and their families, and we will be hosting a welcome reception before the theater opens for the public, where classmates will enjoy light refreshments.   Please note that while the movie is open to all classmates, their families, and the general public, it is "R" rated due to language and drug references, so use your best judgement when bringing younger children.  Movie tickets are $7 at the theater box office on the night of the event.

Class Event:  Tour of Carlisle High School
November 28th, 2015
10:30 AM

The class will have a chance to tour Carlisle High School with current members of the CHS Student Council.  During senior year, it seemed like our school was constantly under constuction with new science room additions, asbestos mitigation, and glass enclosures being closed in.  But, boy, has the school changed!  An entire technology wing and a skywalk between the two schools have been added.  The front of the Swartz building is now the back, and the  senior high library is now the counseling office.  There have been many changes both inside and out!  We'll get a chance as a class to roam the halls of CHS once more after 25 years!  We're going to try to recreate our class photo in the auditorium, so show up! 

Main Event:  25th Reunion Party
November 28th, 2015
6:00 PM--Registration and Welcome Hour
7:00 PM--Reunion Welcome

The main event of our 25th Reunion Weekend is the Reunion Party, held at the Letort View Community Center, located at 1313 Lovell Avenue, at the Carlisle Barracks on November 28th from 7:00-11:00 PM.  Registration and welcome hour will start at 6:00 PM.  Come gather with us to reminisce and catch up while enjoying heavy appetizers, cash bar, music, door prizes, and raffles.  Dress is casual.  Pre-purchase of tickets gets you the discounted ticket rate of $35 per person/$65 per couple, and is highly encouraged, so please use the link found on the "Tickets & Sponsorships" page.  Not only does early purchase help with the planning of the reunion, but it will also facilitate the security check process necessary to get onto the Carlisle Barracks.  Tickets purchased after November 12 will incur an additional $5/person charge.   We will not be able to accommodate walk-ins or "crashers" for the reunion event, so ticket purchases must be made by Friday, November 20.

We will be operating the LVCC shuttle bus on the night of the event from 5:30-6:30 and from 10:30-11:30 to make your trip on and off base easier and to ensure the class' safety.  We will schedule a group pick up and drop off at the Comfort Suites Carlisle and individual stops can be coordinated closer to the event.  If you choose to imbibe heavily on the night of the event, we HIGHLY encourage you to not drive and to take the bus. 

If you would like to volunteer to help during the Reunion Weekend or have a door prize to donate, please contact the reunion committee.  We will need classmates to man the welcome table, to help run raffles and games, and to help prepare the space for the evening.  More details will be forthcoming.

Farewell Event:  Sunday Brunch
November 29th, 2015
11:00 AM

The class will gather one last time on Sunday morning at Fay's Country Kitchen, 203 S. Hanover Street, at 11:00 for breakfast.  We currently have 30 seats reserved and can reserve more, so please let us know if you plan to attend!  Please not that Fay's expects heavy patronage on Thanksgiving weekend, so getting a last-minute seat may be difficult.  Also, Fay's is a cash-only restaurant, so come prepared!
