Walter Johnson High School
Class of 1969
THIS IS the official Walter Johnson H.S. Class of 1969 website. It continues to serve as a place where classmates can reconnect, stay in touch, and share both memories and new experiences. In a small way, it also documents our time at WJ, and in junior high and elementary school, in Bethesda, Maryland.
45th Reunion Basics
The Class of 1969 45-year Reunion will be held on Saturday evening, October 11, 2014 (Columbus Day Weekend) at the Hyatt Regency Bethesda. The main event will be a reception and dance in the Hyatt Ballroom. Other events are being planned for the Reunion Weekend. The 40th Reunion attracted over 260 people, including 200 classmates, and was a huge success. The 45th Reunion will be another great opportunity to catch up with old friends and have lots of fun!
The cost of the Saturday night main event is $85 per person until September 11, when it will increase to $95. Click Here for more Details about the entire weekend, to Register, and to Purchase Tickets. You can see those who have registered for the Reunion so far by clicking the Who's Attending link toward the top of the left sidebar.
The Hyatt has reserved a block of rooms for both Friday and Saturday at the price of $99 per night, plus taxes. This is a great rate for downtown Bethesda! As many rooms were booked during the Early Bird Registration Period, we recommend that you reserve as soon as possible to secure that rate. You can reserve directly with Hyatt from a secure link on our website. For more details and to reserve your room, Click Here . The Hyatt Regency is situated above Metro's Red Line Bethesda Station. For those driving, discounted underground parking will be provided.
Please be a frequent visitor to this website just to browse and for event updates. It will serve as "Reunion Central" for the upcoming reunion and continue to provide an easy way for classmates to reconnect. New content will continue to be added to the site in the months leading up to the reunion. If you have memorabilia to share, please contact us. Likewise, please let us know if you are interested in volunteering for the reunion effort.
We look forward to another fantastic reunion
and lots of fun!!
