Since we've had little success in getting anyone interested in a REUNION for the 1957 class; and we have monthly luncheon meetings, we have decided to try our Annual Picnic as a possible avenue for those out and about in July. Enclosed is information on July 28th, 2017, our 60th year. Hope more of you can join us in our endeavors to stay in touch with OLD friends! Be in touch!

The dates for the events are September 14, 15, and 16. If we have enough interest, we will start with
the first and only Ruskin 68 golf tournament. It will take place on Friday morning and the cost will be
approximately $60. Please advise immediately you are interested so we can make arrangements. Feel
free to call or email me. If you have a twosome or foursome that would like to play together, I think this
can be done. Bill Rice (Lea Medley's non Ruskin husband (but he still is a good guy) will be in charge.
Friday night will be an event at Tiff and Jay's in Lee's Summit on Woods Chapel Road. We have the
lower bar reserved for the evening. The cost will be $15 with a cash bar. The fee will cover the taco
buffet and also provide the first drink of your choice. 6pm-12am.
770 NE Woods Chapel Road, Lee's Summit, MO (816) 373-XXXX
The reunion will take place on Saturday. This will be held at Unity Village. The fee will be $50/person.
This includes a very nice buffet dinner and a cash bar. Entertainment will be provided by the Caretakers
(now called the Elderly Brothers). Remember them? One of the first, original Ruskin rock bands. I think
they use the same song list they had in 1966. I think they may have new amps, though. Start time at
5:30. Photo at 6:15pm sharp. Dinner at 7 pm. Closing time will be 12:00.
Unity Village Conference Center 1901 NW Blue Parkway, Unity Village MO 64065 816.524.3550
If you still want more, Ray and Lynn (Pollock) Braswell have offered up their farm in Platte City, MO for a
Sunday picnic. I think you will be able to fish, harvest honey and shave a sheep or two. I do not think
that BBQ sheep is on the menu. Please discuss with Ray and Lynn at the reunion for details.
If you plan to attend Friday and Saturday, please send a check for $65 per person. Saturday night only
$50 per person.
Casual attire, of course. After all it is a RUSKIN reunion.

Reunion Date: 2014-09-13
Hickman Mills High School & Ruskin High School Classmates of 1974 are cordially invited to attend the 40th High School Reunion from 6:30pm to 11:00pm on Saturday, September 13th, 2014. We hope you will join us for a relaxed and informal night of reconnecting with old friends at the Raintree Clubhouse, 825 SW Raintree Drive, Lee’s Summit, MO 64082. The evening will include Snack and/or Finger Foods and we will supply wine, keg beer and some assorted liquor, along with mixers and soft drinks in a self serve and open no charge bar (As long as Supplies Last).

In an effort to keep the cost of the event as affordable as possible for everybody, we will only charge $25.00 per person and $50.00 per couple for those who pay in advance or $30.00 per person and $60.00 per couple at the door. It would be very helpful if payment were made in advance by forwarding $25.00/$50.00 to PO Box 281, Raymore, MO 64083-0281 by August 1st 2014. Checks can be made payable to “Hickman & Ruskin Class of 1974”. If you choose to pay in advance, please be sure to include your name, along with the name of your guest with your payment. The venue, food and drink, etc. all come at a cost and pre-payment allows for us to pay as we go. Additionally, if any classmates would like to make donations towards future reunions they are welcome to do so by adding to the asked for $25.00/$50.00 costs. These events can be expensive ventures and having money in the bank allows for better planning and more options with regards to venue, location, food, drink and entertainment.

Attire for the night will be strictly casual. Shorts, jeans and relaxed wear in general will be accepted for a night on the Raintree Club House Deck over looking the lake.

Don’t forget there will be a Social Evening/Happy Hour gathering on Friday night, September 12th, 2014 at RC’s “Backdoor Bar & Grill” from 7:00pm to close. RC’s is located at 330 E. 135th St. Kansas City, MO 64145 in old Martin City. RC’s is a full service restaurant and bar offering a full range of “Comfort Foods” on their menu and is owned and operated by Ruskin Graduates of the VanNoy Family. We are also hoping that the VanNoy family will allow us to use the Backdoor Bar & Grill Stage for some “Unplugged” entertainment by some our musically talented classmates.
