Velt 80:

We are about to kick-off summer events, starting with our Annual Picnic to be held, Saturday, July 21st at Riverview Park in Lake Station. Then, Saturday, August 4th we are sponsoring a trip to Four Winds Casino in South Bend, which will be our first fundraiser for the year. Mark your calendars!

Last year’s trip to Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo was a success and we are hoping for even a better turnout this year. Join us and help spread the word! We need all hands-on deck. Please contact any committee member or Charisse Davis via email (charmed762@gmail.com) or inbox her on FB/Messenger. The cost is $40 which includes food and slot credits totaling $25 and roundtrip transportation to South Bend. Each participant will need a valid ID to enter Casino-- no exceptions!

We are selling raffle tickets now for $1 and winners will be announced at the picnic. Prizes are $100, 50, and 25, along with other prizes. Winner need not be present. Contact any committee member for tickets.

In closing, please pay your class dues as we will be approaching deadlines to secure deposits for our 2020 Reunion. We are trying our best to keep fees at a reasonable cost, therefore, I urge you to get your dues in as soon as possible. Keep in mind, it takes more than the committee efforts in raising money – you must do your part as well. I want to give a special Thank You to Elenora Moore-johnson and LaToya Matthews for paying their dues in a timely matter.

Please send payments payable to Roosevelt Class of 1980

Let’s all do our part - get involved a make this a great summer!
