40-Year Reunion Highlights (2010)
The Class of 1970 40-year reunion was an outstanding success. Our thanks to everyone on the 40-Year Reunion Committee and to all of those who attended. Friday evening (June 25, 2010) was an informal get-together and happy hour to get reacquainted. It was held at the Wyndham Dallas Love Field Hotel. There was no formal program. Saturday evening (June 26, 2010) was the main event including a formal program with a humorous class commentary and "awards" ceremony, dinner, and musical entertainment. It was held at the Frontiers of Flight Museum at Love Field.
