      Hi James. If we are contacted by a class that has already scheduled an event, we will post the information. Quite often information can be found on the internet.

      I have not gotten any information about a reunion for 1964, but will post on the site if I hear anything.

        It is disappointing that no plans have been made for a 50th reunion. Are there any class officers we can contact to find out what, if any, plans are being considered?

    Have posted on Facebook that I am willing to chair a committee to begin organzing the 50th reunion for the class of 1965. Looking for others to join me,
