* The Riverside Casino & Golf Resort, located less than 15 miles south of Iowa City, will be the venue for most of our reunion events. There will be a block of rooms reserved 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, 2002, as remaining rooms in the block will be released on that day.
You are welcome to register spouses or any other guests for the events. When you register, you will be asked how many will be attending any of the events/activities listed above.
The Riverside Casino also features The Spa at Riverside Resort. Advanced reservations are recommended for spa services. (See the link in the comments for more information on services at The Spa.)
Sponsorship opportunities are also available for those who would like to promote businesses or just express greetings to members of the class. We are hoping to distribute booklets with current information on class members and DVDs including images from the graduation slideshow and would like help defraying the costs of producing those. Signage at reunion events could also be arranged. If you are interested, please contact us at email@example.com.
** The Program Dinner price will change to $70 after January 1, 2022 so please register early!
We would like as many members of the class of 1981 as possible to attend events. An option on the registration page is provided for class members who want to attend the Friday and Saturday evening events but do not have the financial means to do so. This information will be treated confidentially by the class members in charge of the treasury for the event. Please contact Chris Freeman Johnson. E-mail Chris firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will, however, 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.
