If you haven’t already registered, there is still time to join the celebration. Registration is going strong with 131 attending to date.

The registration of $90 doesn’t come close to covering the cost of your 2 days of reunion fun! Extra costs such as the band, a glass of wine with dinner, decorations and admin expenses will be subsidized by our exciting Silent Auction and sponsorships.  We have a great weekend planned that also includes time for you to reconnect with your own special Vic High pals.
