PANTHER PARTY 2021

Due to the rising numbers nationwide and uncertainty of the future, Panther Party 2021 has fallen victim to Covid-19. Before the Pandemic hit, we had around 225 Panthers signed up for June 23rd, 2021 and looking forward to a great time. At our ages it may not be totally safe by then. We don't want a party with all wearing masks. A party like this, there will be a lot of hugs and kisses and most of us would probably not feel safe. Many of us would be traveling and staying at Hotels and not feel safe even if there is a vaccine available by the end of this year (which is unlikely). As sad and disappointing as it is, we feel at this point, (barring a miracle), it would be best to cancel and try again for 2022

There are 421 days until Panther Party 2021. Time goes by quickly as it is already 4 months since we proposed the Party. With the Marriott closed we have more time to get the necessary 250+. We are at 221 today. If all 221 come, we are still short. Here is the updated list by class.

 

The below list will be updated as Richard  posts on FaceBook.   From now on the new info will be BOLD and RED

4/20/2020 Posted on the Panthers Party 2021 by Richard Carballo

Here is the latest update of those attending Panther Party 2021 by class. There were 31 classes with over 6000 students going thru the doors of LMHS. We are 212 and need to get to at least 250, hopefully by the end of this month. As you can see, we need help from the 50's and 1960, 62', 63', 64', 72', 73', 76', and 77'. This should turn out to be the biggest Reunion Party ever. After being confined, we all need something exciting to look forward to. A few have questioned the cost, it boils down to $12 per month. Mark down the date and sign up for the Gala Event of 2021. Come on Panthers, rise to the occasion!

As we reach the half way point of April here is the current list of 209 Panthers who have signed up for Panther Party 2021 on June 25, 2021. Please let me know if your name is not on the list but you are going to attend. Let me know if you are bringing a guest that is not listed. There are a few that I have a ? for the year, please update. We still need another 50 Panthers to make this work by the end of the month. There were around 150 who attended the 60's Reunion who have not signed up yet and I'm sure not all from the 70's Reunion last year are signed up. There are some who are waiting to see if their certain friend or friends are coming so let's get this going. Only 14 months to go, 

Obviously if we are still under quarantine next year, this event will be cancelled. This is the updated list of everyone who has said yes to attending Panther Party 2021 on June 25, 2021 at The Marriott Hotel in Uniondale. This list is not for the BBQ on Sat 6-26.If your name is not on the list and you will be attending at the Marriott, please let me know. If you are on the list and will not be attending, please let me know. I did not list any of the maybies or might be interested of which there are 50+. As of today,we have 152 yes. We need close to 250 to make this work. We need to bring in friends and siblings who attended LMHS. Where are all those 60's and 70's who had a great time at the Reunions last year. The cost will be determined on the attendance. last year was $175/ person for cocktail hour, 5 hours of open bar with top shelf liquor, great food, music, memories to last and much more. There will be complete details if we reach the 250 Panthers. If we get the numbers soon, we will start getting deposits by the end of April, 2020. There are only 14 months to go.If we don't get 250ish, the event will be cancelled.

There are serious issues going on with the Coronavirus so I hope everyone is being smart and staying safe. Now for some good news. With all the responses from 1953-1983 we will take the next step toward Panther Party 2021. The weekend will consist of Thurs Night at the Levittown Ale House (optional). Fri night Party at the Uniondale Marriott and Sat the BBQ at Eisenhower Park. Sunday is open to ideas. We will need around 250 Panthers to make it work for all. The date right now is June 25th, 2021. I will be posting all updates and info on our Facebook page, Panther Party 2021. It is a closed group so ask to join and I will approve. I know many have already responded but now we need a more accurate commitment. Let us know your year and the name of a guest if there is one. If we get the numbers we need by mid April we will proceed and have the financial details. Please respond ASAP so we can get the ball rolling.

Message posted By Richard Carballo on Facebook

We have about 100 Panthers who have responded with a yes to the idea of another Panther party. Of all the ideas we received, the one that made the most sense is to invite all Panthers from 1953-1983 for one big Panther Party in June of 2021. Many of us have siblings and some might even have children or grandchildren who attended LMHS. In 2019 the 60's and 70's had a reunion and many are ready for an encore. This will be followed up on Sat with a monster bash at a famous Steve Telano BBQ. If this doesn't get us a Party then there will no plan 'C". There will no e-mails sent. I will post on multiple FB sites but we can only reach those on FB. If you have contact with Panthers from 53-83, let them know what we are trying to do. Please respond ASAP on FB or send an IM to me or JoAnn Bongiovanni. For those who don't know us, you can respond to Steve Telano by IM or sgtelano@yahoo.com. LET'S GO BIG PANTHERS!!!!

I don't want to be the boy who cried wolf, but it is with regret that I must say if we don't have the numbers by Friday the 13th of March 2020, we will cancel the idea of Panther Party 2021. As of today we have 82 yes, 33 maybe and around 45 no. Of the 45 no, approx 25 attended last year. We were hoping for a large amount of returnees, but doesn't look like it. With these numbers, it doesn't look good. This response is 150 out of 2500+ who attended LMHS thru the 60's. We need over 200 Panthers to make this party work. We hope to hear from those who have not responded. Please do so by responding on one of our sites or by e-mail to JoAnn (promojoe11@hotmail.com)

Good morning Panthers of the 60's.

For the past 10 days we have been asking for a semi head count so we can determine if we should proceed. We have 416 members in our group and I have to wonder if everyone sees all the posts. I have read where only 25 people see all the posts. Right now we have 83 yes, 26 maybe and 45 no. That totals 154 out of 416 in the group. That means 262 have not given a yes or no. There are also many who are not on FB and are hard to reach. We had 275 in 2019 and we haven't even heard from all of them. Of the 83 yes, we don't know if some of these did not list a spouse or guest. Of the 275 last year, it was only around 160 Panthers and the rest were +1. Help us by responding if your name is not on the roll call list. No response is hurting our efforts. If we can't get the necessary numbers soon, we will have to cancel the idea of a Panther Party in 2021.
