Fiftieth reunions come around for every high school class, but it’s rare to have a double header.

The Queen Anne High School Class of 1969 has one in the offing. First, they held their senior prom at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel 50 years ago, and now will be holding their 50th reunion at the same venue and in the same room.

The celebrated hotel was also the site for one of the iconic senior class photographs in the QA 1969 yearbook. Five of the couples from that class, dressed formally to stage their yet-to-be-held prom, were photographed on the classic Fairmont Olympic Hotel staircase leading to the Grand Ballroom, now the Garden Room. That year’s prom had the theme, “For Once In My Life,” was held on May 29, 1969.

Now, the Class of 1969 will return to the Fairmont Olympic for their 50th reunion from 6-11 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21, 411 University St. Classmates will be coming from Australia, Canada, Sweden, Ecuador, Japan and around the United States.
