the Farmers Market. There is parking on and off of Park Avenue. The Farmer’s Market doesn’t have many spaces for parking.



Letters already went out announcing the 40th Reunion. Monies can be turned in anytime. But as quickly as you find out, send the money to us. We have to be able to adjust with the caterer.

**For Saturday evening, it is our intent is to provide an “all inclusive” event so that all you need to do is show up and have fun!  The registration cost is intended to cover food (not a sit down dinner, but rather a casual menu that will be satisfying yet allow guests to mingle and visit), drinks (both non-alcoholic and alcoholic), music (food/drink are to be catered), and the cost of the venue. The Winter Park Farmer’s Market. (We cannot sell anything on premises, but we can provide you the food and drink).


We will hold the Saturday gathering at the Winter Park Farmer’s Market, which is an indoor/outdoor venue with full accommodations that the committee has chosen and contracted for the event.   It is located in the heart of downtown Winter Park , so if you are visiting from out of town be sure to come by a little early so that you can see all of the wonderful changes to this part of town! Stroll the Avenue. We look forward to seeing you all.  If you have any questions about the reunion, feel free to contact us anytime.


Also note: the Winter Park Farmer’s Market host galas, charity events, wedding receptions, parties of all kinds, and is booked one to two years in advance.  Only on Saturday morning is it actually a Farmer’s Market for real.
