The 30th anniversary Lanier Class of 1979 reunion was held on Saturday, June 20th, 2009, from 6PM until 11PM at the Serranos restaurant at Symphony Square. Our venue included two indoor bars connected by a large patio, covered in oak trees. The music DJ set up in the larger of the two bars and its several sets of large double-doors were opened to the patio for the entire evening. Our dinner buffet was also served from the larger bar.

Information about the reunion plans were published on the Lanier79 home page. Personal checks were accepted as payment via postal mail and alumni could also register and pay using credit cards using this web page.

How Hot Was It?

Interestingly, our reunion event appears to have initiat­ed a heat wave in Austin. The maxi­mum temp­erature on June 20th was 102°F but by the start of the reunion the temp­er­ature had drop­ped to 98°F with a heat index of 102°F. The humid­ity was 36% and the wind blew from the south­east at 20MPH under part­ly cloudy skies.

The next nine days follow­ing our reunion were all 100°F or hotter. In fact, it was the second hot­test June on record.

We’ve archived the Lanier79 web site home page in two forms, as it appeared in 2009, promoting the June reunion event. You can view the home page here. We also have a screenshot image of the home page (large file, 3.3MB) taken on the day of the reunion.

Alumni organized their own private brunches, happy-hour socials, and reunion events, too. For example, Vikette alumni met on Saturday afternoon at The Oasis.

The official edited and annotated reunion photographs are be found at the bottom of this web page. The unedited and unprocessed images, 406 of them from various sources, can be found here: Miscellaneous Reunion Pictures. Think of this section as our picture shoe box. Each web page contains twenty image thumbnails and one large image; Click on the large image to see a link (“View fullsize image”) that will allow you to view the image at various sizes, including huge.
