TJ high school years. I wanted to just review some of the weekend's
details to help you prepare.

tag badge at the 1st event you attend this weekend. PLEASE KEEP IT
HANDY FOR ALL OTHER EVENTS....

available on the Antrim Street side of the building (enter from Malvern behind
the school to get there).
Parking is available behind the
school and on the streets around it.
Gentleman must wear a sport coat (NO TIE REQUIRED),
Ladies are expected to dress appropriately and in good taste.
Blue jeans and hats are prohibited.
Valet Parking is provided for you by your committee and CCV. Please

Our classmate, Milton Chick, will be the official
photographer for the weekend so be sure you gather your friends to get a
photo we can publish on the website and for your memory file. On Saturday
night at about 9:00 PM, our classmate, John Henley, will be taking the
official classmate photo at CCV, so make a note of that as well. Here
is a link to John Henley’s pictorial book of Richmond - http://www.twinlightspub.com/description.asp?id=213
Since many of us have smart phones with cameras, please
remember to share your weekend photos with us. However, please do not
attempt to email your pictures to us as our email account’s capacity is not
large enough to handle the size of today’s high resolution pictures. We
have set up a Dropbox account that can handle up to 2 GB. If you would
like to “deposit” your pictures into our Dropbox account to be shared on our
website, please email Reunion@TJClassof1965.com
for instructions on how to gain access to our Dropbox through the internet.
CDs, DVDs, and USB/thumb drives are also acceptable methods of delivery.
You may email Reunion@TJClassof1965.com
for mailing and/or personal delivery instructions of those types of media.
If you have any last minute questions, you can reach any of
your committee at the numbers below or check our TJ website ( www.TJClassof1965.com
