REUNION - April 25, 2020
Dear Barons - Class of 1970
The time has come for all of you procrastinators and fence sitters to make a commitment to attend our 50th year reunion. The reunion committee has planned as much as we reasonably can at this point, but what we still need is for our classmates to join us in making this reunion not only a reality but a meaningful time of sharing and catching up for all of us.
Our goals in planning the reunion were that it be something for everyone with no specific emphasis on any one or any group, and that there be enough opportunities to gather so that all of us can have a meaningful opportunity to visit with other classmates. With those goals in mind we reserved the beautiful Emory Conference Center for our main event on Saturday, April 25th but we will actually begin on the evening of Friday, the 24th and end with Sunday brunch on the 26th. Here is a summary of events:
Friday evening: We will gather informally at the Conference Center from 6:00 on...come whenever you can. There is an area available for us to visit together but also numerous places for people - inside and out - to sit and talk away from the main group inside. There is no charge for Friday evening, but you can buy dinner and/or drinks with classmates at the hotel.
Saturday: We have developed a list of daytime activities for class members to consider. Except for the golf outing, we are not taking reservations; our intention is just to let everyone know of times when other class members may be going and try and facilitate joint participation.  There will be a sign up list in the hospitality room at the Conference Center for you to indicate your preference.  Among the suggested activities: 
  • 1. Hike the Eastside trail Beltline. Have lunch at one of the many restaurants like the Park Tavern or Ponce City Market Restaurant. Leave at      10:00 am, walk and visit shop and art galleries and have lunch returning at 2:00 pm or later.
  • 2. Hike Lullwater Trail (President of Emory's home and property) and have lunch nearby or have lunch and then walk the trail.
  • 3. THE PATH - South Peachtree Creek Trail is part of this and is a beautiful walk from near the Avis Williams Library over to North Druid Hills Road.
  • 4.  The Fox Theatre Tours - available on Saturday mornings at 10 am. There are tickets for Hamilton on Saturday on Ticketmaster for Saturday at 2 pm. 
  • 5.  Atlanta Beltline. Regular tours are $20/senior citizen and you must have a reservation. Tours depart Inman Park Marta station at 9:15 am and return at 12:30 pm. Register at beltline.org
  • 6.  Stone Mountain Golf Club. Lakemont Course 9:30 am - Tee Time reserved for 12 ppl.  The cost is about $80 per round, about $10 less than normal rate.
  • 7.  Mercedes Benz Stadium Tour at 11:00 am. The price for the tour is $20. Register at mercedesbenzstadium.com or call 470-341-7500 to book.
  • 8.  Michael C. Carlos Museum is located on the Emory campus. It houses quite a large collection of pre-Columbian art which came from the private collection of William Thibadeau - father of Briarcliff graduates - Bill Jr. and Jan and Leonard.
Saturday evening is the ticketed reunion event which will include dinner.  At the conclusion of the scheduled reunion time (7:00 pm until 11:00 pm) classmates can continue to gather at various locations in the Conference Center.
Sunday we will have a brunch at the Conference Center Restaurant.  Each person attending will be responsible for the cost of their own meal.(=+$15)
Please do not miss this opportunity.  Even if you can only make it on Friday evening or on Sunday for brunch, please plan to attend. We look forward to seeing you there.
