Class of 78 Reunion
Wednesday, July 2, 2008 • Posted July 2, 2008

Okay, it took us a while to pull it together, but we will be having a Mason ISD Class of ’78 Reunion.

When: Round Up Weekend - July 12, 2008 – 1:30 until ?

Where: Reardon Ranch cabin in the country

Why: Because it’s time – 30th year! Besides, why not?

We will serve hamburgers promptly at 2:00 p.m. Tea, water, chips, dips and condiments will be provided. BYOB for any other beverages. We’re asking everyone to pay $5 per person to cover the costs of the meal, plates, etc. There will probably be a keg at the cabin, and donations will be taken to help defray the cost of that treat.

The Reardon Ranch (formerly Tommy Reardon’s place, now run by Sean and Terri Reardon) has a large covered patio, air conditioning, bathroom, full kitchen, and ample parking; however, you will need to bring lawn chairs if you have them. We hope you will plan to stay and visit for a while!

The Parade

Huh?? As a class ending in “8,” our class has been asked to have a float in the parade, although we’re still pulling that together. Do you have any good ideas? Pass them on. We’re asking that you wear something you might have worn in ’78, climb aboard our float, and help us celebrate Mason’s Sesquicentennial and the Class of ‘78. The parade will make one circuit around the square this year, so it won’t take too long. Afterwards, you can check out the festivities around the square in conjunction with Mason’s 150th anniversary.

The parade starts at 10:00 a.m. on July 12th. The line-up for the parade will be on Post Hill St., next to the library. Head on down the street about 9:00 am until you see Zesch’s GTO and your old classmates.

Friday Night

We will have an informal gathering to “work” on the float Friday night in town at a location to be determined. Everyone is welcome!

Directions to the Reardon Ranch cabin

Starting at the north-west corner of the square, head out Ranch Road/Farm to Market 386 (Fredonia Road) 6 miles till you reach Blackjack Road on your left (immediately past the Randy Moore home on the right). You will go down Blackjack for approximately four miles (go slow, it’s very rough with lots of sharp curves), you’ll cross a cattleguard, and the only road on your right will be Spice Creek. You’ll go down Spice Creek for two miles, crossing a couple of dry creeks and three cattleguards, then make a sharp left and head on to the Reardon Ranch.
