5:00 PM to 9:00 PM: Reunion Dinner Program at Riverside Casino (See Riverside Casino article)
A buffet dinner followed by music and a presentation of the Class of 1981 slideshow (upgraded to DVD format!) A cash bar will be available.
After the slideshow, Class of 1981 member Rich Webster, a 2014 inductee into the Iowa Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame, will be singing and playing keyboards and guitar. He’s bringing an extra microphone so other Class of 1981 members can sing, too. Renditions of songs popular during our high school years are especially encouraged. If you are interested in singing, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what song you want to sing so we can pass it along to Rich and he can make sure he knows the song and can accompany you. (Rich notes that backing music for some songs is pretty much impossible to recreate with just a guitar or keyboards, so he might have to send you back to the drawing board.)
$75 per person

A block of rooms is being held at a discounted rate for our class. To make reservations, call Riverside Casino directly at 319-648-1234 and tell them you are making the reservation as part of the City High Class Reunion Block. Reserve your room before June 1, 2022, as remaining rooms in the block will be released on that day.
The Riverside Casino also features The Spa at Riverside Resort. Advanced reservations are recommended for spa services. (Go to https://www.riversidecasinoandresort.com/spa.html.)
We will need to provide head counts ahead of the events, so registration by June 10, 2022, will be required for attendance. INDIVIDUALS SHOWING UP AT RIVERSIDE CASINO EVENTS WITHOUT HAVING REGISTERED BY THAT DATE WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE.
If there is a need to postpone reunion events, such as due to the state of the COVID-19 pandemic, registration fees paid will be applied to the new dates unless specific requests for refunds are made.
