Save the Date for our Golden Jubilee Reunion

Oct. 15-17, 2021

Even COVID can’t stop our 50th reunion! Perhaps we were prescient about that, considering the artwork for our Sophomore Review program!
That said, the cover of our, and the Mount’s, inaugural edition of a student-produced senior yearbook reflects the esprit de corps of our class, so we will regroup, reschedule, and return to the Mount to celebrate as “Royal Mounties” at our Reunion Redux!
Based on your responses to the survey we sent last year we’ve planned a weekend of activities that match your interests. And a spouse or guest is welcome to join you!

We hope you’ll choose to JOIN US for a fabulous weekend - to reconnect and share fond memories of our years together at the Mount.  There’s a lot going on in Cincy over our Reunion weekend and hotels are booking fast so CLICK HERE to register today! Please register for each activity you wish to participate in so we can finalize arrangements for activities that require a minimum number of participants.

The Marriott ‘Phelps’ Residence Inn is our reunion headquarter hotel in downtown Cincinnati on Lytle Square. All rooms offer queen or king beds, queen sleeper sofa, kitchen facilities, and complimentary breakfast. We’ve reserved a block of 10 rooms at a special group rate of $190 per night.  To secure one of these rooms, you must book online using this link: Book your group rate for Mt St Joseph- Class of 70

NOTE: If the group-rate rooms have all been reserved, you will have to secure a room at the Phelps or another hotel at a different rate. Be sure to ask about Senior Citizen/AARP rates that can be booked/held with a credit card and canceled/refunded up to 72 hours before arrival. Also, check discount sites like Expedia, Travelocity, KAYAK, Orbitz, Hotels.com, or Air B&B. We also recommend trip insurance to cover any non-refundable costs in case you must cancel on short notice.

We hope you’ll join us for our Golden Jubilee Reunion so CLICK HERE to register! Then update the BIO-book form (Golden Anniversary Biography Form) and nominate someone for each of the Awards we’ll be announcing at our luncheon (Nomination Forms).

Then keep an eye on your mailbox (can you spot yours above?) because we will be snail-mailing you an update with more precise details as soon as we have sufficient numbers to confirm all the arrangements. We’ll share the final agenda and information regarding airport transfers and city sights. In the interim, why not dig out some of your favorite photos and email a digital copy to anyone on the Planning Committee. And feel free to reach out to any of us with questions or comments.
