Levelland High School
Golden Fifties Plus represents Levelland High School graduates from "The Fifties."
(The Plus indicates that any and all who want to be a part of this group are welcome.)
Thank you, Dock Sewell, for your tireless efforts over the years to hold us all together.
Members and friends of Golden Fifties Plus have established a tradition of meeting in
Levelland Texas each year on the first Saturday following July 4. (Old Settlers Day in Levelland is celebrated on the same day.)
Typically, Golden Fifties Plus participants will gather at a local hotel as early as Friday evening and continue to visit on the Saturday following.
Dependent upon the wishes of the group, there may be related activities, including a Saturday lunch, which could give further structure to the "get together."
This new website is being designed to foster more communication with as many Golden Fifties Plus members as possible. The goal is to have growing numbers of participants in the annual affair.

SCHEDULE FOR THE 2018 GOLDEN FIFTIES PLUS REUNION
The plans are about set for the 2018 Golden Fifties Plus Reunion on July 13-14. We have a large contingent coming and can make room for even more, but we would like a head count for the Friday and Saturday meals. Many of you have already let us know about Friday evening, and it would be helpful, but not totally required, to let us know if you plan to stay for the 1:00 p.m. meal on Saturday, as well. Because of the large number of people attending, we have to have a set menu rather than order individually at the restaurant.
Our original block of rooms at the Holiday Inn Express have all been reserved, but as of March 23, rooms were still available. Ask for Golden Fifties Reunion rate though that is now up to the discretion of the hotel management. Holiday Inn phone: 806-894-8555. Amy Tindel is our contact there.
Friday, July 13:
5:00 p.m. Gather in the breakfast room of the Holiday Inn Express in Levelland to register and visit.
6:00 p.m Buffet Dinner at Swackhammer's, directly across from the Holiday Inn. Menu: 8 oz. Rib Eye Steak, baked potato, vegetable, salad, dessert & drink for $15.00 each, plus gratuity. Seating will be in tables of four and six, not a long table.
Return to Holiday Inn after dinner for further visiting. Be sure to sign the registration sheets so we can keep up with each of you.
Saturday, July 14:
Breakfast on your own.
9:00 a.m. Early Settler's Day Parade on the Square for those who wish to attend. Visiting in the Holiday Inn meeting room or in the breakfast room after breakfast is served to hotel guests.
11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Meet at the Memorial Wall next to the old Lobo Stadium.
1:00 p.m. Buffet Lunch at Swackhammer's. Menu: Hamburgers and fixings, assorted chips, brownies & drink for $10.00 each, plus gratuity. Seating as for dinner. Last official activity.
Return to Holiday Inn after lunch for further visiting and to say our good-byes . . . till next year.
SEE YOU THERE!
