Dear Fellow Panther,
Our 50-year class reunion is October 20-22. Be there! This is a great opportunity to catch up on the lives and musings of your friends and neighbors from fifty years past. The purpose of this message is to entice your attendance and get you registered for the reunion weekend and activities.
The reunion will be held at the MCM Grande Hotel located at 6201 I-20 in Odessa. We have two phone numbers for the hotel: 432-362-2311 and 432-556-8666. The hotel is holding a block of rooms for a limited time at the price of $89.99 per night if you let them know that you are with the ‘67 reunion. Your $80 ticket (per person) covers costs for the site, entertainment, food and nonalcoholic refreshments. A cash bar will be available. Reunion activities start on Friday and include a pep rally at Permian for the football game between the Panthers and Amarillo Tascosa. We have also arranged for tours of the school and other events. We will have food and refreshments at the hotel Friday and Saturday nights and something light for Saturday lunch. A disc jockey for Saturday night will enliven the conversation with music from the 1960’s. Dancing is optional. The real event is lively conversation and your shared reminiscences. Please sign up NOW so we have enough food and can accurately estimate the costs.
You can sign up for a T-shirt designed for our class by Jeff St. John, and purchase tickets (on a first come first served basis) for $10 to the game on Friday night for an additional charge. See attachment #1 to register and to order the tickets and/or t-shirts. See attachment #2 for a sample of the t-shirt.
At your earliest convenience (NOW!), complete the enclosed form and check made out to PHS Class of 67 Reunion and send to PHS Class of 67 Reunion, P.O. Box 12322, Odessa, TX 79768.

Permian Panthers ‘67 A group of your classmates from the Permian High School Class of “67 are planning a 50th Reunion for our Class. We hope you will be able to attend and enjoy the memories and company of those you grew up with. The place and date are set: FRIDAY, OCTOBER 20 and SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21 at the MCM Grande in Odessa. We are still planning the events but we will have refreshments and some form of entertainment at a reasonable cost. A formal Evite invitation with the details is in your future. The hotel has rooms available for the Class at discounted rates, first come, first served. The Panthers will be playing Midland Lee Friday evening for those who wish to revisit football glories. Billy Dale is building a website for the exclusive use of the Class. The website is a work in progress. We expect that the website will change daily.
Our goal is to include the great variety of our Class’s activities and accomplishments. We depend on you to help us in achieving that goal. We invite you to visit the site and post photos and biographical information about your activities since graduation. Please take a few minutes and fill out the questionnaire we will post on the website. You will able to post your favorite current photo of yourself and yours. Billy has said he will consider younger perspectives as far back as baby shots. Be prepared to see your graduation photo. In order to contribute your personal perspective, you need only email your photos and other material to Billy Dale at BillyDale1@gmail.com. When completed, you will find fascinating information about all sorts of things on that website. The content is pretty much up to you. Your classmates would like to hear from you: your outlook on life after nearly seventy years, joys and disappointments, political views – all is fair game, subject only to standards of West Texas taste. You can visit the website by following this link: https://www.panthers67.com. You are receiving this message because we have an email address for you. Attached is a list of classmates for whom we do not have email addresses.
Judy Benson Boyter has labored many hours to assemble and organize this information. Please help Judy and us by reviewing this list and forwarding this announcement to anyone with whom you have contact. Please copy Judy at firstname.lastname@example.org with those addresses. Our goal is to contact every member of the Class.
