A Night At The Embassy
 
We are thrilled to announce that the 40 year reunion of the PHS Class of 1979 will be held on the Terrace at Embassy Suites Golf Resort and Conference Center on the evening of October 5, 2019. 

The evening will be a casual and relaxed affair, including light refreshments and a reception-style dining format with a carving station, a cash bar, and tunes from our favorite era presented by a professional DJ. Come and enjoy images and memorabilia from our years at Pickens High School, and reunite with your old friends. The Embassy Suites venue provides ample space for large groups to congregate and reminisce, as well as quieter areas to sit and catch up with friends and acquaintances. For the college football enthusiasts, televisions will be readily available showing the big games being played that evening. (This weekend is a "bye" week for both Clemson and USC, so fans of those schools will not miss a thing!)

The Terrace will be the hub for the reunion during the day Saturday as well.  Our plans are to schedule a variety of ala carte activity options for anyone interested in enjoying time with one another in a leisure pursuit before the evening gathering (additional charges may apply). These options will be announced as we identify them, and information will be provided on the website. Our current ideas (which we are researching) include golf and tennis at the Preserve (adjacent to the hotel), bike riding on the Swamp Rabbit Trail, a trip to Paris Mountain State Park or to an area waterfall for a short hike, a Segway tour in downtown Greenville, etc. If you have any preferences or ideas that you would like to be considered, please let us know via the "Contact Us" option in the menu to the left, and we will see if we can make it happen.


We have already bid farewell to twenty-eight of our friends from our days at PHS (that we know of) - let's get together before that number gets any higher. Please be a part of this momentous occasion! It will be ten years before we do this again, and now is a great time to take advantage of this opportunity to reunite with your old friends from some of the most formative years of our lives. 

A limited block of rooms is available at Embassy Suites at a discounted rate of $139/night for Friday and/or Saturday nights, Oct. 4th and 5th. The rooms are 2-room suites with either a king bed or two double beds. If you would like to take advantage of this rate, please reserve as soon as possible, as the rooms will be on a first come-first serve basis and the opportunity to reserve them will expire at midnight on September 3, 2019. A link to reserve these rooms is provided in the Accommodations section of the "Travelers" page of this website, or you may

Ticket cost will be $60 per person prior to Sept. 1, when the price will increase to $65 per person.
