Tom Wyatt is putting a fine production together for presentation at the reunion.  He gave our committee a preview at the last meeting.  He can still stick something in there if you send it to him.  His information is on this page.

  ANOTHER UPDATE  10-08-15

Your committee met today at the Main Street Brewery for a debriefing.  We discussed the good, the bad, etc. and came to a unanimous conclusion; it was a wonderful weekend.

Around 40 showed up Thursday evening, the Friday night mixer doubled that number.  Thirty-five sailed Saturday afternoon, and around 25 took the campus tour.  We had 99 at the dinner.

We are going to try to put some photos on this site.  Also, Tom would like to allow you to download the videos he prepared for dinner.  Meanwhile, anyone with photos can add them to their webpage as an update.

The committee would like your comments, so the 60th can be even better.   


This website has been a great medium for members of our class to reunite and to reminisce.  We plan to keep it running.  Use it.  










I will let you know more, when we know more.   Remember, age is a great equalizer.  Get ready for the 60th.    Allen
