50th Reunion Feb Blast – Agenda

Dear Classmates- 

It’s 7 months and counting until our Davenport Central High School Class of 1972 50th Class Reunion.  The purpose of this email is to let you know some details so you can SAVE THE DATE and make plans to attend if you are so inclined!  The reunion weekend is Aug. 12-14, 2022.  

The main Saturday (Aug. 13) evening party will be at the Isle of Capri Casino/Hotel in Bettendorf (the same as our 2017 reunion) start time 6pm.  A Friday evening (Aug. 12) casual get together will be held on The Circle Tap’s back patio beginning at 5pm.  Other events are in the works including a best ball scramble golf outing at Duck Creek Golf Course on Saturday late morning, and a casual picnic along the Mississippi River at the home of Deb Van Hecke Eastwood’s brother in Buffalo. 

Classmates who wish to organize additional school tours or events are heartily welcomed to do so and we will publicize these events once they take shape.  Class of 72 audio-visual presentations or displays during the Saturday evening function are also encouraged!  Please contact us if you have an interest in putting together something of interest!

The cost of a ticket to the Saturday evening event is $45 a person (buffet style serving a wide selection of hot and cold heavy hor d’oeuvres and casual entrees, cash bar) and nostalgic live music beginning around 7:30ish (sponsored by a classmate).  

Friday evening at The Circle Tap will be pay as you go (food and drinks) and a donated keg of beer.  Costs and details for the Saturday golf outing will publicized once they are determined.
