From Jennifer Nokes: Greetings Class of 1999! I can’t believe it has already been 20 years! Please join us to celebrate. We have reserved the VIP area at Great Escape for our reunion. We will have a pizza buffet with salad and breadsticks and a cash bar. The cost per person for the buffet is $20. We also have private bowling lanes available to us that we can reserve. The cost per person for bowling is $15 and includes unlimited bowling for 2 hours and shoe rental. Please RSVP AND send your payment via PayPal (paypal.me/jenjohnson3363) or Venmo (@JenNokes) for you/and guest. Please let me know if you are just doing the buffet or bowling as well. The sooner we can get the count for bowling to them the better to block off lanes. If neither of those payment options work, please contact me and we can arrange payment.
