For name tags, we need your name and Class.  In the case of females, we need your maiden name, then your married one.  In the case of spouse or other guest, please give us his/her Class year if a LHS graduate.  Maiden name for females is also needed if she graduated from LHS.  Please feel free to wear to the luncheon any name tag you have from some earlier LHS reunion or other event.


Name tags will be provided at a table at the dining room entrance.

They will be displayed alphabetically; if husband and wife (or other guest) are from different Classes, the name tags will be together with the earlier Class’ name first.   Please give your name(s) to the Classmates at the table so they can check you off the list.  IF you are a Member of Lone Palm, be sure to indicate that so we can include that information on the Check off list. 


Lone Palm is a private Club and has certain rules and regulations that we, as guests, must adhere to just like their members.  Their dress code means no jeans, no shorts, no tee-shirts (men must wear a collared shirt) and no flip-flops.  Please turn off or mute your cell phone as usage is not allowed by Lone Palm while inside the Club.  Thanks.


Lone Palm can be reached on West Memorial Blvd from the downtown area. Lone Palm Dr is the last left turn you can make on Memorial before reaching I-4.  


If coming off I-4, take Exit 28.  Once on West Memorial, you will see Lone Palm Drive which is the first right hand turn. Should you need more information, you can phone Lone Palm at 863-499-5480.


We look forward to another enjoyable multi-class luncheon. This will be the 14th year that the ’53 Class has hosted them. The April 2018 luncheon had 83 attending with 14 different Classes represented by at least one classmate.  Let’s make this one an even better one with more classes and classmates attending.  We hope to see you there.
