After discussing the final details with the country club, we decided to adjust the hours of the event.  It will now start at 6:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. and the food will be served at 7:00 p.m.  If we decide to extend the event, we can buy more time.  

Thank you to all of you (except one) who have sent your vaccination cards to me.  I've talk to several people who cannot attend because they cannot take the vaccine.  You will be missed, but I hope that you all stay healthy, with or without the vaccine.  

I'm getting excited to see you all!  See you next week!!

 

Debbie

 

 

Dear Classmates:

I realize that a lot of people are considering attending the reunion in October, but are still hesitant.  So, I'm changing the "Early Bird" date one last time. 

Until September 15th, the price will remain at $38

On September 16th, the price will increase to $45,

and on October 15th, the "at door" price will be $50.  

If the COVID situation in Houston gets bad enough to have a state shutdown (which will never happen according to Abbott), we could postpone the event without losing our deposits, but otherwise, we're good to go.   

So, come on down, and let's have a party.  This is most likely the last event I will be organizing for the Class of '71, so I'd like to see as many of you as possible.

Remember, though, you  MUST BE VACCINATED FOR COVID to attend, and you can text me a copy of your verification when you register.    Text it to  281-224-0026    or email to   dfhatt@gmail.com

This is NOT open for discussion or threats.   I will not be responsible for a super-spreader event!

Dear Classmates:


 

As of today, our 50th reunion is tentatively booked for October 16, 2021. Since it's been such a horrible year with 600,000 deaths in the US from COVID, the decision to continue with the plans for a “large gathering” has been very difficult to make. Since we're getting down to the wire on finalizing the contract with Hearthstone Country Club, I have to announce that attendees MUST be fully vaccinated to be able to attend. I realize that this will upset some of you, but I'd rather that be the case than have any ONE of you get sick from attending the party. The venue will take all the precautions that they can, but being vaccinated is the only safe option for having a large gathering. The other alternative is that everyone wears a mask, but the survey showed that was not preferable.


 

Thank you for contacting CDC-INFO.

We hope you find the following information about events and gathering helpful.

COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are still high across the United States.

Attending events and gatherings with people who do not live with you - even extended family - increases your risk of getting and spreading COVID-19. CDC recommends that you stay home to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.

Fully vaccinated people can visit with other fully vaccinated people indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing. Fully vaccinated people can also visit with unvaccinated people from a single household who are at low risk for severe COVID-19 disease indoors without wearing masks or physical distancing. Fully vaccinated people should still wear a mask when visiting indoors with people who are at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19 or when attending large, indoor gatherings. Fully vaccinated people can also gather or conduct activities outdoors without wearing a mask except in certain crowded settings and venues.

If you decide to attend or host an event or gathering, there are recommendations you can share with your friends and family before the event. For example:

  • Get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you can and encourage your friends and family members to do the same.

  • If you or your friends or family are not vaccinated, discuss COVID-19 prevention measures, such as wearing masks and physical distancing, before getting together.

If you are not vaccinated and are gathering indoors, make sure everyone wears mask over their nose and mouth, stay 6 feet apart, and bring in fresh air by opening windows and doors.

Currently, CDC does not provide numbers to define small and large events.
Large gatherings bring together many people from multiple households in a private or public space. Large gatherings are often planned events with a large number of guests and invitations. They sometimes involve lodging, event staff, security, tickets, and long-distance travel. CDC's large events guidance might apply to events such as conferences, trade shows, festivals, concerts, or large weddings or parties.
Small gatherings are typically informal and may occur with family and friends you regularly spend time with, often at someone's home. They typically do not involve long distance travel. Small gathering guidance might apply to social gatherings that are with close friends and family, such as small holiday parties, family dinners, and small special celebrations.
