George Washington High Class of 1968 50-Year Reunion
Embassy Suites by Hilton Denver Tech Center North
It is hard to believe it has been almost 50 years since our graduation on June 5, 1968 at the University of Denver Arena. Some classmates have maintained friendships and connections with each other, while others have not seen each other since graduation and our high school days at GW. Wherever life took you, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to return to our roots, honor our common history and experience, reminisce and reconnect. And best of all, just have a really fun weekend!
Our goal is to notify as many of our classmates as possible so that each and every one will be invited and included. Reunited.com and Jonathan Miller are assisting us in coordinating the event, handling the registration, social media and updating classmate contact information.
Please share this information with everyone you know from our class as these updates and additional information will only be provided electronically.
We want to see you in September!!!
Pam Hansen Gausman, John Berman, Joanne Posner Mayer, Brooke Bacheller Granville, Joel Gordon and Pam Clark Yerger
I want to help. What can I do?
The most important thing everyone in the class can do is to reach out to those you stay in touch with from the class and be sure they are aware of the reunion. Tell them the date, about this website, about the Facebook group, etc. Contact info for the committee appears at the bottom of this section.

Is there a hotel room block for classmates?
YES! George Washington 1968 HOTEL BLOCK: To book your room at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Denver Tech Center North, click here for all of the details..
What is the suggested reunion attire?
We like to call it, “Casual Chic.” Think in terms of what you would wear to a nice restaurant or nightclub. The reunion is not a fashion showdown and you should not feel compelled to go out an buy a new outfit for the reunion. You are loved for WHO you are not WHAT you wear! Be comfortable, be confident and wear what makes you feel good. General guidelines: Cocktail dress/tuxedo: Too dressy. Shorts/t-shirts: too casual.
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
If you are not staying in the reunion hotel block, we strongly suggest using a rideshare service like Uber or Lyft to make your reunion experience as carefree as possible. For details on getting a FREE Uber ride to the reunion or reduced fare on LYFT, go to http://reunited.com/rideshare.
What else is happening on the reunion weekend?
What else is happening on the reunion weekend? An informal gathering will be at the Mercury Cafe, owned by our classmate, Marilyn Megenity, on Friday night. Details, registration and a modest cost will be announced closer to the reunion. A Sunday picnic will be at Cook Park in south Denver. A memory book will be created that you will be able to order during the Reunion weekend.
What’s included in the cost of my reunion admission ticket?
Your reunion admission covers a lot more than just the delicious dinner that is being served at the event. Rolled into the admission are other fees from the venue such as facility rental, audio/visual rentals and fees, music, photography, professional reunion company management fee, souvenir name badge button, digital slide show presentation, gratuities and, of course, taxes!
What’s up with the additional fees added to the reunion admission ticket at check-out?
The cost of hosting the Eventbrite reunion website and the processing of credit cards is not included in your reunion admission. As such, they are passed onto each attendee when a credit card is used as the payment method. The amount of these fees are a little less than 6% on top of the published cost of the reunion.
Can I avoid paying those additional fees?
Yes! Optional forms of payment with no fees include Personal Check and Venmo. To pay using one of these methods, please go to http://www.reunited.com/offlinepayment.
I want to submit photos for the reunion slideshow. How do I do that?
Slideshow submissions are accepted up to 14 days prior to the reunion. You are welcome to submit images from back in the day through today. Just be sure that either you or another member of the class is in the shot and that you only upload an image of a single photo, not multiple photos in one file. To submit your photo files, click http://bit.ly/gw1968-uploads.
Is our class active on social media?
YES!! Visit the class Facebook group http://bit.ly/gw1968-fb. On Instagram and Twitter, use the hashtag #gw1968 in your posts and they will automatically appear in the social media feed here on this page.
