2021 Chase All School Reunion
  Bulletin Board

I thought you might like to know what is on the menu for the banquet at The American Legion
Full Salad Bar
Roast Beef and Fried Chicken
Mashed Potatoes with white or brown gravy
Corn and Green beans
Dinner rolls
Sheet cake for dessert

It came to my attention that the dates for the booking of the hotel rooms do not match the dates of our actual reunion. So here is why, lol, some alumni come early to the reunion and some stay late for whatever reasons like extra time visiting family and what not so to get them the same price on the block of rooms I add a day at the beginning and the end of the reunion. I hope this explains what looks like a mistake but not. Remember cut off date to book your room at our special rate is September 13th.
