Class of 71 Reunion UPDATE 8/24/21
As of now we are continuing with our plan to hold our 50th reunion October 23, 2021. With the continuing Covid situation, we will make a final "go or no go" decision September 23rd. Our criteria is, if there is a mask mandate or other state or local restrictions, we will postpone. Our agreement with the hotel allows us to do this provided we reschedule within 12 months. Should this happen all tickets would carry over to the new date. Should anyone not be able to attend on that new date, you would receive a full refund.
With that in mind, I would like to update you on several items. As of now, 71 have confirmed their attendance. Our goal is at least 100, so you can see we are close. The sad part is we have confirmed 77 of our classmates have died. That is 15% of our class. If you want to attend, simply log onto for tickets.
Regarding the Pride of the Susquehanna riverboat cruise, we have 33 confirmed. This cruise is free thanks to the generosity of Bob Tillett. Once you have paid for your reunion tickets, simply send an email to to confirm your spot on the boat. Our maximum capacity is 120.
We have an anonymous donor who has committed $250 towards a free drink for each attendee. With drinks averaging $5, we need another $250 to meet that goal. If we can get an additional $500 that would mean two drinks for each attendee. If you are interested in donating, please email me at
The feedback we have received is that most of our class would like to visit our old high school building which is now a middle school. We are still working on a tour for Saturday morning October 23rd. The school has told us it will not be a problem as long as there are no covid restrictions. We will have a definite answer by Sept. 23rd.
We have confirmed with the Athletic Department that we will have a section of the grandstand set aside for our class. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased the night of the game on October 22nd against East. For all other information refer to our update from August 24th.
When: Saturday October 23rd, from 7-pm to 11-pm.
Where: The Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel on Lindle Road. We have secured a block of rooms at a rate of $109.00 per night plus tax for those from out of town. The phone number is 717-564-5511. Refer to "Central Dauphin 50th Reunion" when making reservations.
Cost: Tickets are $45 per person and can be purchased at Reunion Management. Simply click on this link and please complete all the information requested. Attire for the evening is business casual
Schedule of events:
FOOTBALL Friday night October 22nd, the Rams host CD East in football. We will have ticket information in August.
GOLF on Saturday morning, the 23rd, at Dauphin Highlands Golf Course. We have secured tee times for five foursomes starting at 8-am and ending at 8:40am. It is located 3-miles from our hotel and is a very nice course. Those interested must call the course at 717-986-1984 and let them know you are with the Central Dauphin Reunion Group. Greens fee is $65 (cart included) and you must make your reservation by the close of business on October 8th.
HIGH SCHOOL TOURS on Saturday morning October 23rd. We are working on tours of both the new high school and/or our old stomping ground. Due to covid restrictions we won't know more on this until August at the earliest, but our target time is 10 am.
RIVERBOAT CRUISE Saturday afternoon October 23rd from 1-3pm. The Pride of the Susquehanna is a true stern wheel riverboat. Thanks to the generous donation by BOB TILLETT, the cruise will be FREE of charge. A cash bar will be available with drinks ranging in price from $1.50 for soft drinks to $5.00 for beer and wine, and $8.00 for mixed drinks. Capacity is limited to 120 people. Once you have purchased your reunion tickets for Saturday evening, you can make your reservation by emailing Marty Klingeman directly at Hope to see you in October!
Central Dauphin Senior High School, Class of 1971, 50th High School Reunion - Harrisburg, PA

CLASS OF 1960:   After rescheduling our 60-year class reunion until September, a few weeks ago the situation here has changed.  The Tall Cedars has refunded our deposit along with an explanation that, based on the current and unknown future of the pandemic, they will not allow the use of their facility by any organization until next year.  That, along with all of the problems our country is experiencing, has resulted in the committee deciding to cancel the reunion and all associated activities.  For those who have registered and paid already, your money will be returned shortly by our class treasurer, Karen Mummert.
