THE 40TH CLASS REUNION WAS FANTASTIC.  100 PEOPLE ATTENDED.  There was much food, laughter, dancing and fun.  People came from as far West as Tacoma, Washington and Oakland, California.  Rebels came from as far East as Washington, DC and Baltimore, Maryland.  And, of course Rebels from Atlanta were well represented. Rebels from Kentucky, Illinois, and Pennsylvania came as well.  And, of course the John Adams Rebels who made Cleveland their home came out and welcomed home our Rebels who have moved to other parts of the country.  The best part of the reunion was seeing the smiles, hearing the laughter, and watching the people hug, and noting that Rebels really enjoyed reuniting with one another.  THIS WAS REALLY A FANTASTIC REUNION.
