Class of 1968


GHS Owls 1968

Dear 1968 GHS Classmate:

After 40 years, we are ready to celebrate another turning point in our lives together.

A reunion planning committee is meeting to finalize details for a “Great Gathering” for our 1968 graduating class.  We should have a website up and running in the next few weeks, so send your current e-mail address to Joe Barton at  Soon, you will be able to check our Class of 1968 link on the Garland Owls website for more updates as they develop at

Our event weekend will be October 24 and 25, 2008. On Friday night, October 24, the “Mighty Owls” will play their homecoming football game at Williams Stadium.  We will have a block of reserved seat tickets for the game which can be purchased at $6.00 each.  We are also planning to schedule a school tour of GHS on Friday afternoon and to attend the pep rally following the tour.  On Saturday evening we have reserved the Grand Ballroom at the Hampton Inn Suites in Mesquite, TX for a dinner buffet, dancing and reminiscing. Dress is business casual…”unless of course you can still wear your football, baseball, basketball, cheerleader, drill team, or band uniforms”.  Those will be appropriate as well.

At the Hampton Inn Suites, we will have a DJ playing our old familiar songs of the 60’s.  As part of the program, we plan to have a PowerPoint presentation displaying lots of pictures to remind us of “The Way We Were”.  Please send scanned pictures for this presentation to Sherry Galleshaw at

For your convenience, The Hampton Inn Suites has blocked some rooms for us.  A single is $85.00 and a suite is $105.00.  Please contact them online at or direct at 1-800-722-1891.  Please mention that you are with the Garland High School Class of 1968, Group Code G86.

We have located about two-thirds of our classmates and are diligently looking for the rest.  Please check our Class of 1968 link (soon to be available) on the Garland Owls website for missing classmates and send contact information to Brenda Miller Hollar at  If you would like to be involved with the reunion committee, it is not too late!  We could use more help.  Please contact Richard Smoot at

Cost for the Saturday night event will be $60.00 per person/$105.00 per couple if paid prior to 9/15/08.  Registration after that date will be $80.00 per person/$145.00 per couple.  Donations for immediate expenses would be most appreciated to cover postage, advertising, deposits for facility, etc.  We are also planning a “Silent Auction” that night to help defray costs for future reunions.  If you have goods or services you would like to donate, please contact Elizabeth Chumley-Smith at
