"Field of Dreams" gave us the enduring phrase "If you build it they will come," Madonna's "Like a Prayer" was on the charts, and everyone was watching "The Wonder Years" on TV. Closer to home, Christopher Sarlo was the principal of East Hampton High School, Aubrey Peterson and Treacy Cotter were the homecoming king and queen, and Eugene Lester and Jeremy Trowbridge were the valedictorian and salutatorian.
Those things ought to ring some bells for members of East Hampton High School's class of 1989, who will gather for their 30th reunion on Oct. 12 at the Clubhouse in East Hampton to reminisce and make new memories. Organizers are also inviting friends of the class to join them for the festivities, which will run from 8 p.m. to midnight.
Tickets cost $60 and include appetizers and two drinks. A D.J. will play '80s music, there will be a photo booth, and favorite '80s movies will be playing on the Clubhouse's big TVs.
Cocktail attire is suggested. "Keep it classy, bub," the invitation says.
Tickets must be purchased in advance at sendomatic.com by Tuesday. Those wishing to check in with the fun and see old photographs from the glory days can also do the Facebook page "EHHS Class of '89 Reunion." An Oct. 11 evening meet-up is in the works, as well; details will be posted on Facebook.
The Clubhouse is at 174 Daniel's Hole Road, adjacent to East Hampton Indoor Tennis.
