Fifty Years

I just received a letter from a professional organizer of class reunions. I had been wondering if the Mira Costa HS Class of 1958 was going to celebrate the 50th anniversary of our graduation, and apparently a few brave souls have decided to make a stab at it. I had been searching all of the usual places for news of such a gathering and had come up with nothing at all. Until now.

Reunions Unlimited has the task of putting it together and they want a good amount of money for their efforts. $104 each, or $208 for the two of us. Cash bar, buffet dinner and dancing. Photographs extra $$. And the Manhattan Beach Marriott has a special price of only $119 a night. Who knew Manhattan Beach had a Marriott? When did they build that?

I think I’ll pass.


  1. Mine was at the Marriott in 2005. It is on Rosecrans east of Sepulveda. Pretty pricey for the whole affair. If you didn't have to drive or fly, it might be fun.

  2. I was sort of hoping that they might hold it at Pollywog Pond Park...or Live Oak Park. You know...a BBQ and some casual conversation. I would have gone for that.

    Definitely pricey...we did a ballpark estimate and came up with about $1,000. Maybe a little less.
