60th Reunion Announcement

Dear Classmates

The decision has been made to cancel our 60th reunion this October, 2020.

Tentatively there are plans for a 61st Reunion next October, 2021. The date is again planned to coincide with Bethel’s Fall Festival.

Bethel Alumni has some on-campus and virtual events planned for Fall Festival this year. So if you still want to enjoy an “Octoberfest -Newton trip,” check out their website for details.

Some of you may have become proficient with Zoom or FaceTime get -togethers over the past 6 months. Don’t hesitate to initiate get-togethers on your own, with classmates. If you’d like to have help, please let me know. I’m good at the basics, and Al can help with any complicated questions, I’m sure!

Let’s all stay safe, sane and kind.

Joyce Salisbury
