We declared our 55th class reunion a success and put it to bed. The bills have been paid and the treasury has funds to continue the business of the class. Thanks to those who donated to help defray the costs of such things as teacher meals, mailings, etc. And thanks to everyone who helped in any way. We have had lots of positive feedback. We look forward to the 60th reunion in five years. In the meantime, pictures will be posted soon and we will continue to enjoy our lunch bunch Fridays.

Sue Lovely has a few copies of the book that has contact information for our classmates. If you would like a copy, contact Sue ( There is a small fee to cover the cost of mailing and binding the book.

We had feedback that some folks have difficulty in navigating certain parts of our web site. We will address any concerns that we know about in the near future. Questions? Let us know.
