Site
 

 

THE PURPOSE OF THIS SITE IS TO PROMOTE INTERPERSONAL COMMUNICATION BETWEEN OUR CLASSMATES.  PLEASE DON'T ABUSE THE PRIVILEGE THAT CLASSMATES HAVE GRANTED US BY USING THEIR PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR OTHER PURPOSES.  MANY WOULD NOT MIND, BUT A FEW WOULD SURELY TAKE UMBRAGE SHOULD THIS BE DONE.  THANKS

 

The  50th  reunion was a blast, and the most frequent parting comment was "Let's do it again soon!"  Waiting for the 60th was considered tooooo long;  the 55th appeared to be just right.

We have a new chairperson and  committee planning for the  55th.  

Diane (Bennett) Adamakis has stepped forward and volunteered to chair the 55th committee, which now consists of some members from the 50th and a number of new members . I am still doing the web site - but would not feel slighted if somebody else wishes to take on the task.

The web site has not changed very much since the 50thI do know that the committee is attempting to locate as many classmates as possible.  You can help by looking over the various lists to check if your information is up to date; if not, send an email by clicking on the "contact us" button at the upper left side of the page. 

While you are at it, you might scan the  lists to see if the information for your close friends is up to date too.  Email addresses change a lot over time, and are very necessary for the committee members to complete their tasks at virtually no cost. Please send any corrections you may notice to Diane using the email link on the left side of this page.

There is a new list on the web site that shows who has responded to the recent letter and has purchased tickets. The list will be updated frequently, so check every few days to see which of your friends have responded and will be there to meet with you.  Your early response and inclusion on the list might also encourage some friends who are "on the fence" to join us and make the reunion even more successful.

The 55th reunion has come and gone.

  About 75 individuals attended and had a great time.  The cocktail hour gave us an opportunity wander around the room meeting up with old friends.  After all, we had not seen each other for 5 years and had a lot to talk about.  The meal service was diverse and hot; the music provided by Steve Rando during the meal was right on target.  He played, and we (at least some of us) sang along with many old tunes from the 50's.  Some of the music came from the play "Seventeen" that we produced after graduation in the Summer of 1958.  A special song was even devoted to Linda.  Rich McElhiney lead the sing along.  It was a bit of touch and go there when he found that the music sheets had disappeared; but the show went on in spite of that.   Maybe we can get some candid photos up in the near future.  I might even get the ones from the 50th working again.  Hope to see more of you for the 60th.
