Two things you can do to move reunion plans forward;

1Register your interest in participating in the proposed reunion activities by updating your comments in the 60th Reunion Survey.   If you have not done so already, please complete the questionnaire so we can have an up-to-date count of the number of classmates planning to attend. 

Multiple activities offered over the course of 3 days include three meet and greet opportunities in casual settings and a field trip/city tour. Each activity will be priced independently; classmates may pick and choose which activities they wish to take part in.   

2.  Consider advancing funds to offset the venue/local transportation costs of the reunion as you are able. $1750 has been received as of 9/22/23; the target is $5,000.   Before moving ahead with securing hotel and transportation reservations, the planning team would like to know how much additional funding is available by mid-October.   The donation button is in the right menu.   The objective is to keep costs for each pending activity as low as possible so a greater number of classmates will participate.
