35th Reunion

Dear Class of 1988 Classmates,

The ELHS Class of 1988 Reunion Committee would like to present to you this registration package outlining the fun weekend we have planned for July to celebrate our 35th reunion. 

We have informal events scheduled for Friday evening with the main event Saturday night at Harpers.  Cost for the main event is only $60 per person.


Weekend Lineup                     

Friday, July 7 

Dinner at El Azteco (225 Ann St, East Lansing)

5:00 - 7:00 pm: While there is no formal gathering at El Azteco, we know many of you will want to stop in at our hometown favorite. If you are there, head on up to the rooftop bar. This is informal with no cost to attend.  We have the roof reserved.  Seating is first come first served (not guaranteed).

Beggars Banquet (218 Abbot Rd., East Lansing)

7:00 - 10:00 pm: Join this casual get together at Beggars Banquet, where we have a private room and a cash bar available. Please note that food isn’t provided or available to order during this event. This event is FREE for those attending the reunion.  If you can only attend this event, please make a donation $35 to cover the cost (in honor of our 35th reunion).


Class of 1988 Reunion Sponsor

Provision Living of East Lansing at provisionliving.com is going to be a sponsor of our event. On Friday Night, the first 75 people to arrive at Beggars Banquet will receive a wine glass with two drink tickets good for beer or wine. We thank Provision Living of East Lansing for this sponsorship.


Saturday July 8 - Main Event at Harper’s Restaurant & Brew Pub  (131 Albert Street, East Lansing)     

7:00 - 10:00 pm: Join us for a fun night catching up with classmates, and enjoying appetizers, music, and a cash bar. Please note that there is no formal, sit-down dinner included. 



Donations to the reunion fund are greatly appreciated.  This stuff costs money and we really want to try to keep the per person cost for reunions as low as possible.  If you can afford to donate, it helps a ton.  When you register there will be an option to make a donation.  Thanks!
