MARBLE FALLS — An innocent-enough dinner started the idea of a 1990s Mega Reunion of Marble Falls High School classes.
It happened in mid-September 2012, hours before the kickoff of the annual Burnet-Marble Falls football game.
William Burrgess, class of 1993, gathered with a couple of his classmates, Justin Craig and James “Bubba” Hebert, and invited any Mustang alumni to join them for dinner.
They were surprised by the number of people who showed up.
And then, next thing they knew, the trio were encouraged to do it again, but on a bigger stage with even more people — a class reunion.
So Burgess contacted classmate Jennifer Yates, president of the class of 1993, to ask if the class officers, who are charged with planning class reunions, needed help.
“She was so busy,” he said. “So it was brought to our attention, if y’all want to do it, that would be great.”
And since so many graduates have significant others from different classes, Burgess said it made sense to include all 10 classes of the 1990s and the 2000s, if anyone wants to attend.
The 1990s Mega Reunion is June 8 from 4 p.m. to midnight at River Bend Conference Center, 710 First St. The cost is $25 per person, and the event is bring your own beer.
For tickets, mail a check and a self-addressed, stamped envelope to Burgess at #51 South Fairway Loop, Coldspring, TX 77331. Children ages 15 and younger get in free.
“We’ll set up a little room for them in the place for movies and coloring books,” Burgess said.
The first 250 tickets-holders are eligible to win a 32-inch flat-screen television.
Though tickets will be sold at the door, Burgess encourages people to buy tickets to the event in advance to ensure enough food is ordered.
“We’ve sold quite a bit, but it’s not enough to cover all the expenses right now,” he said.
Entertainment will be provided by DJ Freddie Martinez, class of 1992.
For those arriving June 7, the organizers invite attendees to meet for dinner at Bella Sera, 1125 U.S. 281 North, at 7 p.m. with each family paying their own expenses.
