To all 29 Palms School Classmates and Alumni:

This is the official announcement of the 2014 Annual School Reunion during the 29 Palms Pioneer Days event beginning Friday night , October 17, 2014, for our annual Mexican evening meal -- and the Pioneer Days events on Saturday, Oct. 18; Parade, Old-Timer's Gathering at the Old Elementary School Museum and Saturday night dinner party at the 29 Palms Inn again this year.

We took a poll and asked many classmates that attended these events in past years, and a majority of you requested that we keep the same events at these same places. We understand the current economic conditions and hope you can make it this year.

In fact, with all this political and economic turmoil, it might be good therapy for you to come out to the desert, relax and enjoy renewing old relationships with friends, laugh a lot and enjoy the events -- October's climate on the desert is outstanding!

First, the Friday Night Dinner:

Friday night (just come to dinner, no RSVP necessary) at Las Palmas Mexican Cuisine, 73741 29 Palms Highway - Phone 1-760-367-9099 at 5:30 PM to 10:30 PM.
Relaxing, plenty of time to talk and enjoy the evening. We are asking for enough tables for all of us to be in the same room.

Cost to you for the very well done buffet is $13.95 per person, including coffee, tea and soft drinks, plus tax & gratuity -- or off the menu meal and drinks (NO MIXED ALCOHOL DRINKS, ONLY BEER & WINE AVAILABLE).

Second, the Saturday Night Dinner Party:
• At the 29 Palms Inn once again...! Owners Jane (Van Lahr) Smith and husband Paul have continued to do a great job with the facilities and food for this event.

• Beginning at 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. with dinner starting around 6:30 p.m.
• Cost to you $40.00 per person including tax & gratuity (*RSVP and pay in advance) with alcohol drinks extra. Due to raising costs for the 29 Palms Inn, the cost is higher this year, however still a good price for their quality food and services! Please make checks payable to “29 Palms Inn”

Shown below are the normal Pioneer Day Reunion events. This list will be updated later as a reminder.

Here is an Event Summary:

(1) Friday Night; 5:30 PM again at the Las Palmas Mexican Cuisine, 7374 - 29 Palms Hwy, buffet and/or they will accept orders from the menu dinner. Beer and wine are available.

(2) Saturday morning: On your own or if you would like, some of us goes to a very inexpensive breakfast ($3.00 or $4.00 donation last year) at the 29 Palms Fire Station, just south of the four corners, beginning at 7:00 a.m. for pancakes, bacon and milk or juice. Donations for the meal goes to the Volunteer Fire Organization's needs.

(3) Saturday at 10:00 a.m. to about noon: The Pioneer Days Parade starts. If the Marines are back from overseas, it is an active parade, otherwise it's pretty small but charming (it's at no charge which is worth that amount – and you can use this time to meet and talk to other former friends close to the Smith Ranch Mural on Adobe Road near the old Bowladium road.

(4) Saturday 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. - The Old timers Gathering at the old school building museum relocated near to the 29 Palms Inn entrance. Snacks and soft drinks supplied by the 29 Palms Historical Society.
The museum is a good one, with good memories for those that attended this old elementary school prior to the mid 1950's. All of the old 29 Palms High School Annuals are available to read. They also have interesting displays in the museum showing pioneers pictures and other artifacts. The 29 Palms Stage restoration has been completed and Hastie’s old bus looks great!

(5) Saturday Night; 5:30 PM at 29 Palms Inn for dinner party.
We are looking forward to this year's events and I know you will have a great time and renew some old friendships...!
