of my reunion?
are nearly 900 alumni from each graduating class to locate and confirm
contact information. Many have not responded to our Alumni Directory
campaign the last few times.
you get out of the loop, you may be on our missing or unconfirmed list even
though you haven’t moved in years. Please do not assume the AHSAA has
your current contact information ever. Please register for the reunion if
you are not sure, you can always email us at Alumni@ArcadiaApaches.net with your current contact
information. You should also subscribe to our Alumni Newsletter, which also helps us keep our alumni database
current. Click Here
subscription is free.
you sell or share our information with anyone?
published in the Alumni Directory is public; however, we will never sell
your contact information or share it with anyone. Our alumni
Newsletter has a strict spam policy. Because lists are not shared,
reunion committee’s are faced with the task of locating their entire
class all over again when the next reunion comes around, which is why it
important to keep your contact information current with the AHSAA to be
sure you do not miss out on important reunion information.
area hotels are offering special reunion weekend rates?
all the way down to the bottom of the page for area hotels. Many offer Auto
Club discounts as well. There is no special pricing or room blocks at this
are currently working with area hotels for the best prices, please stay
Santa Anita Inn and Hilton
Gardens are offering
the lowest prices at this time.
does the price of the ticket include?
detailed description is included in the “reunion services”
do you determine the price of each ticket?
largest portion of the ticket price is determined by the cost of the use of
the facilities at the Santa Anita Park/Racetrack, the menu, signage, bar
service, tables, chairs, linens, presentation easels, service ware, use of
monitors, security, parking and all that is required for you and your guest
to be on the premises. Another portion covers the disc jockey, sound
equipment, professional photographer, decorations and props, event staff,
biography photo DVD, and personalized photo name badges. The
remainder of the ticket covers comprehensive alumni search, data entry,
postage and printing, advertisements, custom website hosting and design,
handling finances and funding. Certain extra items, such as the Reunion Bio
Photo DVD and personalized photo name badge are for class members
only. Even though guests, such as dates, spouses or alumni from other
years pay a full price for the reunion night ticket, these items have been
figured and divided amongst the entire group attending, to cover the total
costs. The price varies by room used and the projected number attending.

I do not want to eat, or I am on a special diet is there a non-dinner
When you pay for a venue/menu, the price charged per person at Santa Anita,
is not just for the food. You're paying for the venue, parking, security,
tables, chairs, linens, service, staff, bar
tenders, signage, advertising in the daily racing program, electronic
signboard, utilities, TV monitors anything and everything that it takes for
you to be on their property and the food just happens to be included. Santa
Anita charges per guest whether you eat or not and their staff takes
head-counts throughout the evening.
there a special ticket price for those attending, even though they did not
graduate from my class?
Guests such as dates, spouses and alumni from other classes pay the regular
price for the reunion night ticket, even though only class members receive
the Reunion Bio Photo DVD. The costs of these extra items have been
pro-rated and divided amongst the anticipated number attending with the
hope that they will be covered in the end. If a husband and wife alumni
attend, they will both receive the reunion bio photo or DVD and
personalized photo name badge.
is the dress code? Dressy Cocktail Attire
cocktail attire, no jeans, shorts, cut-offs tank tops or flip-flops.
reunion attire, and yes most the guys do wear suits/ties, ladies party
dresses, but nice pants/tops works well.
rule of thumb is, you're never over dressed.
there be security at the reunion?
Anita security guards will be present, and for your safety, only guests
wearing their photo name badges will be admitted to the reunion.
Walk-in tickets available?
reunion is reservation only; however, we understand circumstances arise,
such as last minute arm twisting by your friends. The number of walk-in
tickets available will depend upon the room capacity and menu availability.
The full late- ticket price, paid with CASH ONLY is applied regardless of
what time you arrive, or whether you plan on eating or not. Santa Anita
staff members keep close count and we are charged per guest in attendance
throughout the evening regardless of whether you eat or not, or whether you
arrive after the meal has been served. Santa Anita's policy is such that
partial ticket prices are not to be offered.
I am unable to attend my reunion after having made reservations, or I
forgot to attend, are there refunds?
are unable to refund any part of your reservation. Proceeds from the reservation
will be donated to the AHSAA and all items purchased, or included such as
the reunion bio DVD will be mailed to you after the reunion.
may I share my memorabilia for the evening of the reunion?
displays and tables are a special part of the reunion evening, if you have
memorabilia to share, the reunion committee would greatly appreciate it.
For additional information, please contact someone on your reunion
committee or contact us at Alumni@ArcadiaApaches.net and we
will direct you to the committee chairman.
Parking included, and where do I park?
PARKING IS INCLUDED. It’s best to enter the gates on the East side of
the lot, either Gates 5, from Huntington Drive.

and catch up on many years, therefore the audible
level is that of quiet background music of the era through the dinner hour
with an upbeat in volume from 10:00pm to midnight. Certain requests may
call for the volume to pick-up, however, he is
sensitive to keeping everyone happy.
beauty of the Turf Club is there are many
different areas to visit without music, the Turf Dining area, the Americana
Room and outside overlooking the racetrack, there's something for
many people will attend our reunion? Will a list of guests be posted?
best way to increase attendance at the reunion is for class members to get
on the phone and encourage each other to attend. This is why a large
portion of our confirmation of alumni’s contact information has been
done by telephone. A phone call is more of a personal touch than a postcard
and greatly appreciated. A motivated committee can make a huge difference
by leading the effort for your class. Because of the amount of time and
effort required in putting the event together, posting and updating a guest
list which changes by the day is not possible. For privacy reasons., only "lost" alumni are allowed to be

compilation of all the bio's and photo's submitted
to us, as well as contact information you chose to have published. If the

evening, the bio's and photo's may perhaps be used
for that purpose.
