80th Birthday Lunch vs Another Reunion?

JoAnn Salin has reported that there has been some suggestions about having an 80th Birthday lunch/dinner in lieu of an 85th reunion.

“Phyllis would also like to know what you think of having an 80th birthday party get together instead of waiting 5 years for a “possible” 65th reunion.  Let me know what you think and I’ll forward your remarks to everyone ;-)”
Cheers,
JoAnn”

Sorry, classmates if you didn’t get it

“Hi JoAnn:  I would like to have an 80th birthday party for those who can attend.  I can help with arrangements.  I vote for summer of 2020 for easier travel, but this last September was nice too.

Happy Birthday to all of us.    Karen W”

“Remember the ladies 70th party?  If a 80th can be a much fun (with the guys) I am in

But those babies couldn’t wear shirts that say  ” I lived through the 70s twice”.  🤷‍♀️”

From: Laura Fellman

“I am interested but am also not sure I want to travel so far so soon after the 60th reunion.  So, I am uncertain I would attend.”

From:  Mike Bignell

“I told Phyllis at the 60th and am more convinced of its wisdom now; namely do it for our 80th b-days ( in 2 summers) while most of us should still be around and able to participate.

From: Helen Bernstein Nagusky

“I’d be interested in a 80 yr old birthday party…..

Hopefully we will be able to travel …..”
