Thomas A. Edison High School

Classes of 1968, 1969, 1970 Reunion

Nobody Does It Better!

The Thomas A. Edison High School reunion committee of classes 1968, 1969 and 1970 hosted a wonderful reunion on August 22nd-24th, 2014 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Old Town Alexandria. A block of rooms, with special rates & parking were arranged at this river view hotel overlooking the Potomac and Washington, DC; complimentary shuttles to and from the airport were available; casual and dress-up venues were obtained a year in advance to accommodate everyone; a top class band and emcee entertained on Saturday night in the Presidential Ballroom; professional photographers took individual, group and candid pictures to commemorate the occasion; a biography booklet listing the latest known information on classmates was published; fun raffles and drawings were held to support efforts for our next reunion.

The Friday night casual icebreaker was very well attended and got the weekend off to a fun start in a wonderful room at the hotel filled with Edison memorabilia, good friends and great food. Food, drinks and set-up for this no cost event were donated by the reunion committee members.

Saturday night’s dinner dance in the elegant Presidential Ballroom was a great success with a chance to get a professional photo made individually or with a friend during cocktail hour, a delicious dinner buffet, a heartfelt trip down memory lane with reminisces by very Master of Ceremonies David King (’69), and live music provided by the fabulous band Route 66. High school decorations and remembrances helped make the room and the evening ours, as we laughed and danced with friends throughout this special night.

Many people met for breakfast on Sunday morning at the hotel for one more visit before leaving. We had reconnected with many friends, had a wonderful time and promised ourselves to do our best to stay in touch.

The weekend was “top drawer” beginning to end. The next reunion will be in 5 years. Meantime, the reunion committee is thinking about a “midterm” event between now and then. Stay tuned, keep us updated with your current address/contact information and when we have news, we’ll get the word out.
