February 1, 2020

Hi Everyone~~

Sure did seem like I blinked and January was gone. Hope the whole year doesn't go by that fast. Remember your favorite valentines the 14th.

So I think we have a 2020 All School Reunion pieced together now. Not going to be what we have been used to but Chase Kats have always been resilient so think this time won't be anything different. Our Host hotel will be the Fairview by Marriot in Hutchinson. You can make your room reservations now, be sure and ask for the block of rooms to get our discount. Cut off date I believe is Sept 1st but why take the chance, book now. We have booked their meeting room for the duration of the reunion so in that room will be registration, Felix Shop, and community hospitality room with coffee and iced water provided. Soon as the registration letters go out with the Alumni Newsletter plz get them sent back in as soon as you can. Different this year is with your registration you can pick any past yearbook (if you wish) that we have in stock, first registrations in get first pick in case there might only be one of those books. Also the Social Hours, Banquet and the dance will be held at the American Legion in Hutchinson. To attend social hours, banquet and dance you will need to pick up your registration packet first at the hotel which will include your wristband to enter the American Legion and their bar area, banquet and dance. For the dance this year we have a great DJ that will take requests and will keep us on our feet. Check out the website link 2020 Reunion Bulletin Board for any updates.

The next three paragraphs are repeats but bear repeating so hope you don't mind.

Check out the website to see who are Class Representatives, if your class doesn't have one plz step up and let me know you would love to have the job.  Here are the classes that need a rep. 1946, 1947, 1948, 1950, 1991, 1993, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2019. All that is required is that you keep in touch with your class and update me on any new addresses they might have, contact your class at least once a year and see that class reunions are held whenever you need one. facebook is a great tool for staying in touch.

I cannot stress enough the importance of letting us know when you move and let us know your current address. I know we are low on the priority list but it helps when the March Alumni Newsletters come out. Nothing more heartbreaking (and expensive these days) than having a bunch of newsletters come back. You can email me with your new current address or your Class Representative and they will let me know. Don't know if I have it or not? Be safe and email it to me just to make sure. We are about a month out from sending out the newsletters. Thanks

And in regards to the Newsletter that will go out this March, if your class had a reunion this past year or you are planning one in 2020 let me know the details or just that you are planning something and I will include it in the Newsletter so your classmates can get a hold of you. Try to get that to me before the middle of February plz.

Until next time--

Thank you for the donation of the 1971 yearbook!

We would like to thank Gerald Fiedler and Kay Kopfman Thrall for donating yearbooks at the 2017 All School Reunion. We would like to thank Betty Browning Fulton, Class of  1944 for donating a 1941 yearbook to the alumni.

We thank Rhonda Clayton David for donating her yearbooks to the Association. The ones that were needed will be put in the cabinet at the High School for all to enjoy.

 Thank you, Betty Browning Fulton - 1944 for letting us know there were no yearbooks in the years 1942, 1943 & 1944 due to the war.

We are in need of some yearbooks to fill in some empty spaces in our cabinets at the school. These are on display for all to see so if you have an extra one or just want to donate yours to the Alumni we would be grateful. If you want to donate any of the following years, contact Sherry Cole.

1945, 1946, 1951, 1953, 1969, 1970,  1983, 1984,

Just a note to that, if you have any of your yearbooks of any year, please don't throw them away, we take them as well. We also have yearbooks on hand to sell if you are needing one. The list of what we have is on the  Kats Kraft Shoppe page. Thank you.

FROM PAST UPDATES:

January 1, 2020

Hi Everyone~~

Well first of all Happy New Year everyone! Hope you had a fun, safe ushering in of the new year. Ours was quiet and spent at home. At 12 some of the neighbors shot off fireworks and guns but that was about it. Second I hope your Christmas was a time of fun and spent with family and other loved ones. We are having ours yet this Sat the 4th as our Granddaughter Stephanie spent Christmas in Hawaii with her Aunt and family and i wasn't sure when our Marine Grandson Brock would be home so we are having a delayed one so we can all be together. Harder and harder as the grandkids get older, married and so forth.

Guess the big news is (if you have not heard) was the closing of our Reunion Host hotel the Atrium. Closed their doors on a Friday and sent all employees home. Shock for them and for us for sure. Your committee has been fast and furiously trying to line up another host hotel and place for the banquet and dance. We have now a new host hotel and tomorrow I am going to finalize details on a place to hold our banquet and dance. Other than the Atrium there is no place that will hold everything under one roof so our reunion will be a little different this year. But we being Chase Kats know how to land on our paws (feet) and have a great time.  lol I have put all the information about the hotel, how to make reservations and what not on the 2020 Reunion Bulletin Board page so check there often for updates.

The next three paragraphs are repeats but bear repeating so hope you don't mind.
