I DON’T DRINK
That’s okay. We understand there’s some teetotalers among the group. That’s why our base registration fee is $45. You won’t pay for booze you didn’t drink. Non-alcoholic beverages are available as a cash item all night long. Your fee will include the casual food items available all evening. Plus, the music, activities, and your chance to party. All the fun is our gift to you!
IS DINNER SERVED?
No, but there’ll be snacks throughout the night, then some more substantial late-night chow to soak up the libations. We’ll roll out some creative food options to fuel the final few hours of the bash.
I SEE I CAN GET DRINK TICKETS UP FRONT. CAN I BUY MORE?
You bet. Drink tickets will be available all night. In fact, we’re going to have a pair of official specialty drinks to Lion-ize the party! So no fear, your whistle will be wetted through the wee hours.
WHO HAS REGISTERED FROM MY CLASS?
Well, we really can’t give out that info, including the fact our registrations change daily. So here’s a request. BRING your classmates with you! Remember, YOU PLUS TWO. We’re counting on it. The beauty of our All-Years format is you’ll run into plenty of people you know from outside of your graduating class. But all LHS alums are ambassadors for TOGETHER AGAIN! Your mission is to get the band back together and plan to meet at the Lisle Hyatt on October 15!
I DON’T DO REUNIONS
If we had a dollar for everyone in the past four all-years events who said that, came anyway, and had the time of their life, well…..we could probably lower our admission price for this one! “I almost didn’t come, now I’m so glad I did,” is a popular refrain.
WILL THERE BE ENTERTAINMENT?
Alumnus Ken Modaff (’72) and alumnus mom Stefanie Brinegar (mom to Justin and Josie, LHS ’18) and the Call me Jo Band kicks off the evening in the main ballroom. Two hours of rockin’ it out. Call me Jo plays their final song around 8:00 before jetting off to open for the Stones (okay, maybe that isn’t true) a DJ will take over and the dance hall is open. It’ll be loud and wild!
HOWEVER, because we have the entire ground floor of the Hyatt, there’s copious amounts of space away from the crazy’s so you can talk and yuk it up with your pals from LHS without having to shout.
I SEE EVERYONE I WANT TO SEE OUTSIDE OF REUNIONS
……Until you come to an All-Years reunion and realize a few need to be added to your speed dial and inner circle.
IT’S AT A HOTEL SO DO I GET A BREAK ON THE ROOM?
Yup. The Hyatt is offering a special rate for LHS partygoers. Simply call the Hyatt at (630) 852-1234 and tell them you’re part of the Lisle alumni block and plan to stagger to your room in the wee hours.
On our website you’ll also notice a place for you to register for a party and pass-out package (we don’t officially call it that, but you get the gist). The package is room, drink tix for two, and a little sponsorship of the evening, plus our undying gratitude!
I HAVE PLANS THAT NIGHT.
Welp, if they’re local how ‘bout the best of both worlds? Do your thing until your thing is done, then head to the Hyatt. Food is coming out after 10 or so, bar closes at 2 am…..and you can get a room upstairs. Sounds like a doubleheader to me!
WHEN IS THE NEXT ALL YEARS REUNION?
October 15, 2022. See what I did there? Subliminal messaging. That IS our next all-years reunion. The message is to be at the Lisle Hyatt this October. No time like the present!
I HEARD THE ALL-YEARS REUNIONS ARE FOR OLD PEOPLE
Hey there pal, watch it. Ever see the movie “Woodstock”? That generation INVENTED big parties. We guaranty plenty of alums from the 60’s and 70’s will close-down the bar at 2 am. Still, if you’re the class of ’99, ’09, or ‘19 we don’t expect you to want to party like it’s 1959. The Hyatt is ENORMOUS, and we have every square inch of the ground floor plus the indoor party tent so you can hang with the alums from your era in whatever corner you carve out. Just know the ballroom will be rocking with Lions. Hope you can keep up.
I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR.
Well, we draw the line at nothing, but beyond that wear whatever! We’ve had prom dresses to gym shorts, three-piece suits to sundresses. Jeans, T’s, evening gowns. We’ve even had some where white slacks despite it being after Labor Day.
Nobody cares what you wear. Or what you do, or what you failed to do. Or that you look older than you did in the yearbook (Spoiler alert: you’re not alone). Or that you put on a few (see previous spoiler alert). We’ll miss you and that’s worse than showing up in your SpongeBob Onesie or Daisy Dukes.
SHOULD WE PIGGY-BACK OUR CLASS REUNION WITH THE ALL-YEARS REUNION?
Yes. A very good idea. And we can help you publicize through our website and all-years reunion correspondence. Every all-years reunion included groups that met for dinner then headed to the big event en masse. And “REUNIONS” come in many forms.
+ Class Reunions
+ Family Reunions
+ Team Reunions
+ Cast Reunions
+ Neighborhood Reunions
+ 1973 Student walk-out reunions (okay, maybe that’s a stretch although it actually happened)
Contact Jay Grochowski, Nalley Foundation Director at Grochowski.email@example.com and let’s put our heads together.
WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?
YOU PLUS TWO…. Push, prod, cajole, shame, brow beat, whatever it takes to encourage others to meet you at “TOGETHER AGAIN” In a crazy world of uncertainty one thing is for certain. Our little town and the people of our school days are a sight for sore eyes. So, start by signing up. We’ve made it uber-easy via our website. It’s also your home for all the key information so check back daily. Then find two more people and have them find two more of their own. YOU PLUS TWO, rinse and repeat.
If something comes up, we’re not going to keep your money so it’s fully refundable. Hey, we went to school together, so we’ve got your back.
REGISTER NOW and talk it up for the next two months. The Nalley Foundation will rock the foundation of the Lisle Hyatt October 15, 2022, 6:30pm til 2:00 am.
