The 50th reunion is coming up in 2021 and we’re trying to settle on a date. It is pretty well split between before or after Cheyenne Frontier Days.
We’re also seeking some local people to help organize the event. In the past, the organizers have been from around the country and that’s logistically problematic.
We get inquiries about a Central High obit list, and if anyone is keeping track of this, let us know and we can get your classmates in touch with you.
It’s also time to start planning for summertime visits to Cheyenne. I generally make it up from Colorado for a day or two of Frontier Days.
CFD is always a great time to reconnect with classmates during planned and serendipitous encounters. Gone are the days when Downtown was the entertainment district.
All the revelry sprawled out of town – Cadillac Ranch on East Lincolnway and the Outlaw on the south Greeley highway. There’s still the Albany and the Crown. The Plains Hotel Wigwam redux is okay. I see the old Mayflower changed hands again. I keep forgetting that the annual crowds stay the same age and I keep getting older and older.
Keep taking your medicine and paying your insurance premiums so you’ll be in tip-top shape for the 50th reunion that will take place during the summer of 2021. By then, everyone should be retired and there should be no conflicts, right?
