     Welcome to the R J Reynolds High School

Class Of 1962 Web Site

 

                

What's Old is New!

We will see you at the 55th Reunion!

... OCTOBER 6 and 7, 2017!

More than 20 of your fellow classmates have been meeting since June, 2016 to plan our 55th R J Reynolds High School Class of 1962 Reunion. Many of you completed the survey we posted letting us know that yes you wanted a 55th along with what you wanted and when. We listened…

“What’s Old Is New!” This is the theme that has guided the Committee in putting together an unbelievable weekend. Not only has R J Reynolds High School changed, but Winston-Salem has really, really changed.  (Of course, none of us has changed at all, except for a few new parts and fewer of some original ones!)  You will have plenty of time to chat and catch up with all of your old friends and classmates, but we also want to give you a flavor of what is going on at the school and downtown. You will simply be amazed.

We want everyone to mark their calendars and hold the weekend of October 6 and 7, 2017 for our 55th reunion. Spread the word as well. We look forward to a great turnout and seeing everyone there. Reserve your spot now for a great weekend by going to the Sign Up section located on the left of this page.

Friday Welcome

Join your classmates at historic Brookstown Inn, a really unique hotel located a short walk to Downtown as well as Old Salem, for an official welcome and opening reception.  Enjoy a delicious heavy appetizer buffet as you greet classmates, catch up and learn about weekend plans.  Beer is included courtesy of Bill Sherrill and Red Oak Brewery.  Wine and mixed drinks will be available at a cash bar. It is going to be a fantastic time to greet old friends and classmates, maybe some you haven’t seen in 55 years! We know for a fact that many of you have reconnected at past reunions and continue to visit and stay in touch. 

Brookstown Inn has really cool rooms and they are holding some for us. You can find contact information for the Brookstown Inn and for other options on the Local Hotels information located on the left of this page.



Saturday Guided Tour of the School and Downtown

With noted local historian Fam Brownlee, an RJR graduate, as a guide, classmates will enjoy a city-wide bus tour of the new Winston-Salem. We will meet at RJR at 10 AM returning about 1:00 PM.  The group will start with Krispy Kreme doughnuts and coffee at the Music Center on the Reynolds High School campus where the participants will learn more about RJRHS today including plans for the stadium. We will then depart by bus for a quick stop at the site of the proposed football stadium, a drive through new construction at Wake Forest and Innovation Quarter (an exploding 200 acres in the center of town with apartments, condos, new companies, research labs, school campuses, entertainment venues, etc.), a bustling arts district packed with galleries, restaurants and bars, to  4th Street packed with outdoor diners at restaurants and breweries, you will marvel at the transformation.  We will also take a spin through the UNC School of the Arts (formerly Gray High School) and a flash from the past as we ride down Old Salem's Main Street.

The bus tour is limited to 55 guests, so sign up early if you want to participate.

 

Saturday Night Dinner Under the Stars

A special night is planned with a casual dinner seated under a tent in a wonderful parklike setting. The location is Cam (Dize) Matthew’s original home place on Swan Drive with a lake, dock, band shell, and ample room for a great party. (It will bring back a lot of really happy memories for a lot of classmates.) A number of big time events have been held there over the years. Music from our high school era will waft from a juke box from the cool covered stage. Wine, beer, and set ups will be provided.  It will be BYOB if you prefer a mixed drink. Enjoy a delicious buffet dinner with all your favorites.  Golf carts will be available for classmates that need assistance walking from the parking area. This will be a fabulous way to cap off the weekend!
