On Monday, April 27, your UAHS ’70 reunion committee had an online meeting and concluded that the best course of action is to postpone our big reunion celebration until the Fourth of July weekend of 2021.
Our rationale included:
• The City of Upper Arlington and the Upper Arlington Civic Association have not released any decisions about July 4 activities, something they typically do well before this date – raising speculation that cancellation/ postponement/significant changes are coming.
• Given the lack of certainty regarding public safety during this phase of the pandemic, the time remaining to do everything needed to safely organize and complete the tasks for our reunion (everything from meetings, float building, and so on) is insufficient.
• We don’t wish to risk the financial commitments required for venue down payments and expenses for reunion-related materials (party and float decorations, promotional expenses, etc.).
• Like it or not, we are in an age group that is more susceptible to catching the virus and we need to be wise about travelling, gathering, and all other situations created by this event.
• While holding our reunion later in the year was discussed, the possibility of this virus “rebounding” in the fall guided us to select the 2021 date.
* If the situation improves to the point where social interaction (and Fourth of July events) can take place this summer, the UA Class of ’70 will organize some gatherings for classmates, spouses, family, and friends. We can have our traditional Fourth of July BEARS’NIGHT OUT at Coaches Bar & Grill and we can organize other activities (such as parade- and fireworks-watching, picnicking, etc.).
Of course, we will update this information as we move forward.
Stay safe, be healthy, Go Bears!

UA75-45th class reunion that was scheduled to take place on July 2, 2020 at the Athletic Club of Columbus, has been cancelled due to the COVID19 virus.
This was not an easy decision, but given the current state-of-affairs, the reunion committee felt being overly cautious was the prudent thing to do.
The committee plans to reconvene in the coming months to see if a 46th reunion makes sense. We will keep you posted, as we know more. Until then, we wish you and your family good health!
