Making reservations and providing payment as soon as possible will help us in our planning. Please print the reservation form and remit payment according to the instructions. A PayPal option will be available at a later date, but paying by check saves us money.
Even if you are not making firm reservations now, please click on the link below to make tentative plans (even if you are only indicating that you will not be attending or haven't decided yet). Even if you are undecided, it will let us know that you received our email about the reunion.
Please keep your own profile information current (i.e., email, postal address, phone, etc.). Click here to update your own profile information.
WE NEED EMAIL ADDRESSES FOR SOME CLASSMATES! For a number of classmates, we have postal addresses but no email addresses. Because we have limited funds for postal mailings, these classmates receive no announcements from us in many situations. Do you happen to have an email address for them? Click here to see a list of the classmates for whom we have no email address.
AND PLEASE HELP US FIND OUR MISSING CLASSMATES! Look at our list of missing graduates and let us know if you have any idea of their whereabouts. Maybe we can find them all by the 50th reunion.
We are going to be asking all classmates for a current photo so 50 years laters it will be somewhat easier to match a name to a person. Please email high-resolution images to firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be cropped to a 3 x 4 (W x H) aspect ratio similar to the yearbook photos.
The Reunion Committee welcomes anyone who would like to be on a committee or help out at the time of the reunion.
