We discussed various ways to get the word out about the reunion and to collect the contact data for as many classmates as possible;

  • Personal contacts and word-of-mouth
  • Publicity in local Ventura County media (newspapers & radio)
  • Oxnard High School website -- Alumni section

Virginia Boll volunteered to coordinate the publicity in the Ventura County Star and radio.  Fred Clay will assist with copy writing.

We thanked Phil for setting up our reunion website ( and discussed how it will be used:

  • To get classmates to "register," so we capture their contact data for later communications
  • To keep classmates posted as we gather registrations and complete the planning process
  • To communicate the final reunion details (date, time, location, costs, etc.)
  • To solicit "signups" for the reunion dinner

The committee reviewed a list of names, maintained by Lori before her death, that Fred did not recognize.  Phil and Tommie recognized most of the names and only one name was dropped. 

We agreed that we must recognize the need to maintain privacy with regard to the contact data in the class roster.  We agreed that, when the reunion is over, Phil and Fred will each maintain copies of the final roster, to insure we don't lose the data should another classmate pass away.

The committee discussed the possibility of scheduling the Reunion on the weekend of the annual OHS Homecoming football game.  Fred reported he contacted Oxnard High School and asked for the date of the 2013 Homecoming game.  He was told the date is not decided upon until the end of the school year in June.  As the committee must decide upon a Class Reunion date well before June, the suggestion was shelved. 

We agreed to research the following possible reunion venues for the 8/1-10/12/13 time window:

  • Hilton Garden Inn -- Tommie & Rita
  • Marriott River Ridge -- Tommie & Rita
  • Courtyard by Marriott -- Tommie & Rita
  • Crown Plaza Ventura -- Ronn & Virginia
  • Embassy Suites Mandalay Bay -- Ronn & Virginia

We agreed to try to keep the cost of the reunion dinner to under $50.00/person.  

Fred Clay volunteered to set up the OHS Class of 1963 -- 50th Reunion checking account.  When that is completed, Phil Corpus will communicate with Rose Mary Cheveres about forwarding the remaining balance from the 45th Reunion.

The committee discussed the possibility of a joint 50th reunion with the Hueneme High School Class of 1963, but decided against it at this time.

The next committee meeting will be at 10:00 AM, January 5, 2013, at the Boll residence in Camarillo.
