Welcome to the Virgil I. Grissom High School Class of 1977

in Huntsville, Alabama official website!

Our '77 45th Reunion will be held

September 3, 2022!

GHS 45th Reunion Information:
It is hard to believe that is has been 45 years since we graduated from high school, which means that it is time for our 45th reunion for the Grissom High School class of 1977. You are invited to join us on Saturday, September 3, 2022 to enjoy food and fellowship in a fun downtown Huntsville location. Our plan this year is to keep it simple and have one event at BeeZr Gastropub +Social Exchange. Beezr is a small-business collective comprising four business entities including Chandlers Ford Brewing, The Champagne Taco Kitchen, Northside Coffee and Hippea Camper (vegan fare). This location has a lot of Huntsville history connected to it (it used to be the Jazz Factory) and a special treat is that BeeZr has our '77 classmate Ron Jewell as one of the owners!

Here are details about the event:
* 3 – 7 pm, BeeZr Gastropub, 109 Northside Square, Huntsville, 35801. We will be upstairs in the mezzanine & there will be a cash bar.
*There are several big screen TVs, so you can stay informed of any football game’s status.
*Some appetizers will be served and/or you will be able to order from the menu at your cost.
*There will be no cost to attend, but we encourage cash donations to help cover expenses. A donation box will be located where you enter the party.

Even though we aren’t collecting money to attend, your RSVP will help us plan for wait staff/bartender and appetizers. PLEASE RSVP to classmate Linda Reynolds Pohuski at We strongly encourage you to respond if you plan to attend for the sake of committee planning purposes.

We hope you can join us and reconnect with classmates as well as explore new and old Huntsville treasures. More information about the thriving Huntsville downtown area and local hotels will be forthcoming. We are looking forward to seeing you! Your 45th Reunion Committee!
