Details: This is for the Turner high school class of 1997! We are sending this out in regards to our upcoming 20 year reunion, we would like to plan our reunion to be held sometime between August of 2017 to October of 2017. In order to figure out where to have the reunion, we need to get a rough estimate of who would most likely attend and if they would be attending with a guest.
We would like to start planning early enough to be able to have an amazing reunion. As soon as we get an idea of how many people will attend, we will start working on where, when, entertainment, food and beverage. As with any function it will require money, we can try and raise the money, see if we can get donations, and or set an amount that each of us would have to pay. All ideas and suggestions are encouraged.
Please share this among your fellow classmates whether on Facebook, mail, email or phone. Then let us know if they plan to attend with or without a guest for those who don't have facebook. Please respond to post with your name and the number of people whether it's you and any guests let's make this an awesome reunion
