60th Birthday Venue Vote

The WJ Class of 1977 will have a group 60th Birthday Party the weekend of October 11-13, 2019.  For the Saturday evening main event, we have researched dozens of venues in Bethesda, Rockville, Gaithersburg, and Germantown.  Using classmate feedback from the 2018 year-end survey, we've narrowed the venues to three choices.  If you would like to see photos of the three venues, click here.

On this page, please rank these three venues in your order of preference (remember to click the 'Submit' button at the very bottom of the page - you will not see the Submit button until you log in to the website):

Hershey's, owned by WJ Class of 1982 alumnus Lisa Gorman, is situated in an historic house set off the beaten path in Gaithersburg.
