Good food choices at the Sarasota birthday party!

You can now select which meal you'd like at our Sarasota party when you register.  So in addition to being with good people in a splendid setting, you'll know what's being served.  Also, there'll be a cash bar for your choice of drink, too.  So register here and select your meal from these choices:

  • Georgia Pecan Crusted Chicken
  • Hoisin Glazed Salmon
  • Penne Pasta Primavera

If you have already registered, we'll be sending out an email so you can indicate your meal choice, too. 

After a week or two when we have a more complete list of who has registered, you'll find a list of names here. So register today and plan to join some good 70-year old folks for a great time!

Any thoughts of warm, sunny Florida yet?

Tired of dealing with early snow or preparing for arctic temperatures? Then come to Sarasota, Florida. You are invited to join your MHS classmates for a 70th birthday party/luncheon in beautiful Sarasota. Some details are below, but we need your registration - we need to know you're coming.  We've invited members of the class of '64 and '66. If you're in touch with anyone in those classes, let them know we want to see them, too, but we need your registration by February 10 so we can order the meal you prefer.

Getting There by Plane and Car

Thanks to Herb Wilson's request, we've listed nearby airports. Tampa International is by far the largest, serving multiple airlines. But the smaller ones serve smaller and often less expensive airlines, including Allegiant from Moline.  Since fares can fluctuate throughout the day,  is a helpful tool that will email airfare alerts.

By car University Park Country Club is easy to find whether you are driving from the north or south on I-75. Take exit 213 and head west for about a mile.  You'll see a big sign on the north side that says University Park CC.  If you're using a GPS, the best address to use is 8301 The Park Boulevard, University Park, FL 34201. Tell the guard you are there for the Moline High School Luncheon/Party.  Parking is free, too.

Plenty of Options for Staying There

Sarasota has it all -- Airbnb listings, motels, hotels, and seaside resorts. Your choice. There is a cluster of motels near exit 213, several more directly west along University Parkway, and several close to the Sarasota airport. Near the center of town are some very nice hotels such as The Ritz Carlton, The Hyatt Regency Sarasota,The Holiday Inn Sarasota-Lido Beach, and Longboat Key Inn and Resort.

While we recommend securing early reservations in such a lovely area, there is one option we have heard of for a last minute plan you might try; it's an app called Hotels Tonight.  It is supposed to let you book up to a week out and get a good deal when hotels have unsold rooms.

Other Activities

Any informal gatherings that happen will be posted here if you get them to Right now we just have one, but welcome learning of others.

  • Friday, February 24 -- Marina Jacks for the dinner hour and beyond.

  • Sunday, February 26 -- Crabby Bill’s on Gulf Blvd, Indian Rocks Beach for happy hour on. Music drink and food specials. A great time is always had by all.  12:00 PM on.
