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
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
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
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.
