The Wednesday Night Social (WNS) was first held August 1st, 2001.  Very soon after it was established, John and Donna ENNIS Teter ('65) began to ensure that folks were informed each month of the plans. About 15 - 20 people were attending which was somewhat of an unexpected success. These classmates represented the 40's, 50’s, 60's and 70's. Over the past years' the monthly dinner social has followed this pattern with the attendance ranging from 12 to 30+ attendees and spanning the four decades of GWHS Alumni.

In early 2005 Natalie Havener McArtor ('72) and Randy Woods McKlveen ('72) volunteered to take over the leadership from John and Donna ENNIS Teter ('65). The name was redefined as the First Wednesday Night Dinner (FWND).  Together, Randy and Natalie thoroughly enjoyed running the First Wednesday Night Dinner during 2005. But, in 2006 Natalie moved away from the area, so Randy McKlveen began to do the planning and coordination on her own. During all this time the group has visited a number of different restaurants in the area; some of the more frequently visited have been, Squire Rockwell's, Daks Grill and the Da Vinci Family Restaurant in Falls Church.

If you haven’t yet made it to a GWHS “First Wednesday Night Dinner”, you should plan on attending one soon. The dates and time are easy to remember, since they are always held on the first Wednesday night of the month from 6 to 8 p.m.  So please mark it on your calendar!  Or go to We move around to different restaurant locations every few months, so also get on the mailing list by emailing Randy McKlveen. She will put you on the email contact list if you want notification and inform you of the upcoming locations, times and dates. You can also get the plans by going to the GWHSAA web site (http://www.gwhsaa.com/) and on the main page - click on “Activities” and then on the resultant page - click on “Activities Schedule” and check the current calendar.

This casual and friendly gathering is open to all class-years and we genuinely welcome anyone new who wants to join our group. It is a very simple, informal dinner where we just catch up with each other, sort of like a mini reunion but attended by GW classmates that span the years from 1943 up to 1972.  Its fun getting to know more about all of these various folks with whom we share our school connection; learning where they lived, where they hung out, etc. It’s also very gratifying to find out that we all have so much in common - who would have thought?  I really encourage you to come and see what these dinners are all about.

 Hope to see you soon!
