There will be a funeral reception on FRIDAY at P J's in Kirkwood from 2 to 5pm. If you are planning to go there, be aware the parking in that part of town is a bear, so just be patient; parking on the surrounding streets (no meters), and other lots is available, just drive around a bit. I'm sure the public part of the restaurant will have normal clientele, the reception will be in the adjoining space, so don't stay away if you are yearning for a great P J Burger, just be aware...
Remember we are having a cash bar, and also while your wallets are open, we're having a few Silent Auction items - no not ski trips to Aspen, or a new car, but some KHS65 memorabilia, think t-shirts and mugs, teddy bear w/ Kirkwood shirt, some nice ceramic steins, one KHS Alumni and one of a Kirkwood landmark, can coozies, just some fun "stuff" - money going to Class Reunion kitty.
