The Turlock High School class of 1993 will be holding its 20-year reunion at 6 p.m. Sept. 14, at Toscana’s Ristorante, located at 1801 Colorado Ave.
One of the reunion’s organizers, Shawna Casey, says a Facebook page is driving THS ’93 alumni to the reunion, as well as good old-fashioned 1993-style word of mouth.
Tickets for the reunion can be purchased at BBVA Compass at 1955 Geer Rd. For those graduates who no longer live in the area a RSVP form is available on the Facebook page under the “files” tab. Grads can print out the form and mail it to ATTN Shawna Casey at BBVA Compass at 1955 Geer Rd., Turlock 95382.
