Class of 1957
60th Reunion

The plans are being finalized for our 60th Reunion.   It will be held on Friday, June 2, 2017 at the Peachtree City Hotel and Conference Center which was previously the Wyndham Peachtree Hotel and Conference Center.  We have reserved the Lafayette banquet room starting from 12:00 noon until 4:00 PM.  A buffet lunch will be served starting at 12:30. We decided to eliminate any formal program so that we will have more time to "catch up" and "visit."  The cost for the reunion will be $25.00 per person. The dress is casual.

Please make your check payable to "Russell High Class of '57" and mail it along with the enclosed form in the envelope provided before May 10, 2017. Be sure to include the name of your spouse or guest so we can prepare a name tag.

If you are not attending the reunion this year, please return the enclose form in the envelope provided before May 10, 2017 so we will know that you have been contacted and are aware of this event.

your response form will look something like this

For those planning to stay overnigh
t, a special rate of $119 per night has been negotiated.  Reserve your room by calling 770-486-3321 or 800-996-3426 and mention Russell High School Class of 1957.  The Hotel was completely booked during the first weekend of June last year; therefore, it is important to make your reservations soon while rooms are still available.  

The Peachtree City Hotel and Conference Center, 2443 Highway 54 West, Peachtree City, Georgia 30269 is relatively easy to find.  If you are driving from Atlanta, take IH 85 south (toward Montgomery), exit onto Highway 74 (exit 61) and drive to Peachtree City.  Turn left on Highway 54 in Peachtree City toward Fayetteville.  Turn left into the Hotel and Conference Center as soon as you cross the lake. It is located about 30 minutes from the Airport.  Shuttle service is available, but it is expensive at $38 each way.  It can be scheduled by calling 770-486-3284.  

Again this year Becky Brown Jernigan is preparing a memorabilia display.  If you would be willing to contribute some old pictures, a high school keepsake or Russell High memento please contact her at 770-964-4288.  

There will be ample time to view the memorabilia tables and watch a continuous video memorializing our deceased classmates. 

Dress: Smart Casual - the Conference Center is a nice setting and dress should be in good taste.

In addition to comfortable seating, light food and beverages, including cocktails, may be ordered from these areas.  The Restaurant is near by and for any wanting a heartier meal, it is available.  This is a pay as you go set up - you pay for what you order and nothing more.

The best description of the Conference Center is that it has the lush feel of a resort insulated from the hustle and bustle of a big city. 

Yet it is close enough to plenty of outside activities such as golf, movie theaters, shopping dining and such.  Even excursions to Atlanta are no more than an hour away.  Visit their web site for more information.  Some of the Conference Center's on site activities include:
