parade-1970-2Reunion is Just Around the Corner!

An exciting program awaits for June 5-7

If there’s one you don’t want to miss, it’s this milestone event.

A lot has happened to the world and to us since we graduated in a drenching downpour in 1970, wearing black armbands and just beginning to process the shattering and disruptive events of that spring.

Please join us on campus June 5-7 for our milestone 50th reunion. We have planned a special program looking back on our achievements, struggles, and life stories, and looking ahead to the challenges and opportunities that await us as we move into our 70s and retirement. And of course there will be plenty of opportunities to refresh old friendships and forge new ones.

Early registration will continue until April 9. May 14 is the final registration deadline. Here is the online registration page.

And here’s the full program; print it off or download it here. Please note that meals are open only to those who have purchased them during reunion registration.
