Welcome to the website for the
Harding-West '60s Reunion
Well, Hurricane Matthew tried to sabotage the Harding West '60s Reunion for 2016. We're happy to report that the spirit and tenacity of the Westsiders was too much for him. We did experience a reduction in attendance due to this storm, but we forged ahead and had another terrific, memory-making event! Thanks to all who attended, particularly our first-timers. Also, we wish to thank our volunteers for stepping up and making things easier for the planning committee and our guests. Now...what can we do in 2017??
Reunion Status Update
As of Monday morning, October 10th at 8:30 AM, the Avista Resort is OPEN for business as usual. So get your bags packed and get to the beach. We're gonna' have a party!!!
I just got off the phone with David Shaw, owner Of Duck's at 3:00 PM Sunday, October 9th. As we were speaking, he was waiting on staff to arrive so they could re-enter Duck's for the first time since it was sealed a few days ago. They had boarded up all windows and doors plus used waterproof caulking to prevent water from entering through any cracks around doors, etc.
I posed the question you all want answered and here is David's response. Duck's will be open for business Wednesday evening for business as usual. They are waiting for us to arrive Thursday to kick off the 13th annual Harding West '60s Reunion. So, from Duck's standpoint, we're good to go! I'm trying to get an up-to-the minute status report on the Avista Resort. Just as soon as I have that, it will be posted here and on the Harding West '60s Reunion Facebook page.
Check back frequently.
