Which class is your son in? 10-22 or 11-22?

Comment by Mike Sobolewski on April 21, 2022 at 11:51am

Thanks for the time for graduation, I was thinking it was in the morning. There will only be 2 of us so number of guests is not an issue. We have accomodations. Guess I just need to make dinner reservations for graduation night

We just learned they will be allowed 4 guests for the June 3 graduation. Still no children due to the vaccination rules.

I wonder when the last "hi moms" took place.

Comment by Mark E Mangus on April 17, 2022 at 9:35pm

At this point, the question is how many guests are allowed. There are two venues right now that can be used for the graduation. One will allow for only 2 guests and the other, 3. ALL ATTENDEES MUST BE VACCINATED. That means young children cannot of today 4/17/22.

Make hotel reservations soon. Hotels up there going to run you $350 a night and up. I just made reservations through T-Mobile Travel at the Homewood Suites for $345 plus tax/night.

Negative on the hi moms as of 01Apr2022.   Had meet-up time from 10am-1300 then 1400 graduation on Friday.   Thats it.
