Cathy Scoggins Weirich‎ to "ALL '60's CLASS PARTY "--AHS/MARQUETTE  ....don’t forget to mark your calendar for the “Blast From The Past” Street Party that will now be sponsored by Mac’s Time Out Lounge on the “last Saturday in September.” Mac has asked me to help assist him in getting our ‘60s group to attend , as they have for the last 10 years. At my request, he’s going to supply the tables/chairs, like we’ve always had. Necessary! 😊
The entertainment has been secured. The OWLS Band will be playing ‘60s/70s/80s music!! Dave Wickenhauser assisted me in getting the band booked! Thanks Dave!
Basically it will be the same PARTY, same date,same menu and there will be only one GOAL:
