50th Class Reunion Announcement

Dear Classmates-  

The purpose of this email is to announce the date and location of the Davenport Central High School Class of 1972 50th Reunion.

The Saturday evening party will be held at the Isle of Capri Hotel and Casino in Bettendorf.  It is the same location as was our 45th reunion in 2017, and is scheduled for Saturday, August 13th, 2022, 6pm to 11pm.  The address is 1800 Isle Parkway, Bettendorf, IA 52722.  Special room rates for out-of-town guests and other details will be posted as they become available.  At this time, the per person Saturday evening ticket price is estimated to be in the mid-$40 range.

Plans are being finalized also for the traditional Friday evening casual get together at the Circle Tap on Locust Street in Davenport.

Being that the reunion is over a year away, we hope that this advance planning and notice will offer more classmates the chance to plan to attend.  Hopefully, it will also allow classmates interested in organizing school tours, brief presentations, golf outings, picnics, etc., to do so.  Tim Cornish is once again coordinating our class communications and managing the website and private Facebook site.  www.dchs72.com is the website and on Facebook or search Davenport Central Class of 1972.  Tim will post up-to-date information as it becomes available.

I’d also like to thank several classmates who agreed to be part of an Advisory Committee and have assisted in reviewing information for our 50th Reunion, they are: Tim Cornish, Chriss Gwinn, Charlene Bachelder Hendrickson, Barb Johnson Wiese and Sam Yarham.  Chriss Gwinn and Sam Yarham will again act as treasurers and handle financial matters related to the reunion.

Please help us spread the word to other classmates who you keep in touch with and forward them Tim Cornish’s email so he can add them to his database.    tcornish1972@gmail.com  or dchs72.com@gmail.com

All of us hope to see you there!  This reunion will certainly be a unique milestone for our class!

Go Blue Devils!
