Class of 1979
45th Reunion

Oak Ridge, Tennessee


We’re doing it again.  Friday night social at Crafter’s Brew, home football game Friday night, guided hike on Saturday, and a Night at the Museum.

Join your ORHS Class of 79 classmates
September 27 & 28, 2024
in historic Oak Ridge Tennessee

Please sign up for the mailing list if you want to get informative emails about the class reunion. Of course, if you have changed your email address, please sign up AGAIN. We want to be sure everyone at least has the opportunity to decide to attend (or not attend).

The Facebook group is much more active than the email list and, if you participate in the discussions, you might be able to influence party details. Maybe even help out? So join the Facebook Group too, if Facebook is a thing you do.

The Event Of The Year!

Meet up with your old ORHS classmates

Socialize in a relaxed setting where you can just be yourself and see what everyone has been up to.  We won’t even have dance cards to fill out.  No pressure.

Breakout Working Sessions

Talk about your retirement plans or your aches and pains with your fellow Wildcats.

Football Game

ORHS Wildcats vs. Clinton Dragons on Blankenship Field.  Your reunion ticket price does not include a football ticket – we don’t know who all wants to go to the game and who all wants to continue intense socializing but tickets are available at the gate.

After Party?

Hang out at the fire pit at the Marriott next door or even go to Krystal like we used to.  (You know you like Krystal).

Social at Crafters Brew

Meet up before/during the football game at Crafter’s Brew, the beer garden on the Turnpike just across from the Federal Building and walking distance from Blankenship Field. 

Your ticket to the reunion does not cover this event (but Sharon has swag for those who who up).  Drinks are available at Crafters Brew for a reasonable price and there are several exciting restaurants nearby that will deliver food to you at Crafters or you can walk over and get it yourself.

Wildcats Football Game

Cheer for the Wildcats!  We’re playing Clinton at home this week.  Your ticket to the reunion does not include a ticket to the game but you can get your ticket at the gate – just like old times.  

Make sure to hold the handrails going up and down those steep steps.  You’re not as young as you used to be.

Blankenship Field

Take a hike

Join us for a hike in historic Oak Ridge led by the legendary ORHS basketball star and historian, Steve Oliphant.  Bring water, comfortable walking shoes, snacks, and any medications you might need for a semi-strenuous stroll through the woods and greenways of our homeland.

Steve plans to take us on a 2.5 mile hike on the Cedar Hill Greenway, starting in Jackson Square near 201 Broadway Ave (the Blankenship Field parking lot).  The hike will lead us by the Alexander Guest House, Chapel on the Hill, the old Pine Valley and Cedar Hill Elementary Schools, Moylan Lane, the Alvin Weinberg home, Blankenship Field, and end at Big Ed’s Pizza.

Night at the Museum

This is the main reunion event.  Casual reception with heavy hors d’oeuvres.  Music.  Laughter.  Friendship.  Your $70 gets you delicious food and two drink tickets.

For those of you who have been away for a while, the museum is now in its third incarnation in Downtown Oak Ridge in the old Sears building.  Read more about the museum here.
