Here we are again!

Almost time to celebrate 60 Years since we graduated from RHS!   

I know it is hard to believe, but time flies when you're having Fun!

So with that said - 

If we are going to have a 60th Reunion, we need to start planning it.

The suggestion is to aim for a Saturday in September 2018.   Please reply by sending an email to Hank Balfour with "Interested" or "Not Interested."       Send your reply to Hank at

If there appears to be sufficient enthusiasm, plans will proceed.

Hope to hear from you all soon!

  "Our Friends Are A Very Important Part of Our Lives.
Treasure The Tears, Treasure The Laughter,
But Most Importantly, Treasure The Memories"

 "Truly great friends are hard to find, 

difficult to leave, and impossible to forget."
