Class of 1978 40th Reunion

Saturday, July 14, 2018

Dear PHHS Class of 1978 classmate,

Please join all your classmates/friends for a fabulous event celebrating our 40th High School Reunion on Saturday, July 14, 2018 in the Rancho Bernardo area of San Diego.

As we are limited to 250 guests at the Bernardo Winery event site it’s important to register now while space is still available. Go to www.PHHS78.com to register/pay and please help us by forwarding this information to other classmates that you are in contact with. We have been able to provide you a great value as we have not hired anyone to plan this event. All the time and energy are donated by your reunion committee. Please show them your appreciation by coming to the event(s) and/or making a donation to the PHHS Alumni Association, Inc. so that we may continue to help the current student body have as good or better experience than we did.

Just added! At noon on Sunday, July 15, 2018 current Principal Listy Gillingham has graciously offered to personally escort our class around the Henry campus. You will tour the spectacular new Patrick Henry Arts, Media & Entertainment (PHAME) performing arts center (with the state-of-the-art PHHS Alumni Conference Room and Alumni Hall of Fame), the Main Office remodel (and new furniture donated by the PHHS Alumni Association), the new hi-tech two-story Math and Language Building (the lobby will be named in honor of the late Cindy Mizer as a result of a generous donation from our classmate Sheri Mizer-Miller), as well as, the Stadium and all athletic fields nearing completion of their own remodel. There is no-charge for this very special opportunity.
