Sir:

Wanted to provide you an update on the dates/classes will return for reunions in the spring of 2020.

We just met with the Class of 1965; they will now return for their 55th reunion during the Retiree Appreciation Day weekend, 23-26 April 2010, with the Class of 1960.

Thus, for Grad Week, 17-20 May 2020, the classes returning will be - 1945, 1950, 1955, and 1970.

Respectfully,

Vince McDermott '85

24 FEB 2016 Announcement

I am very pleased to announce that Jim Bergen, our Class Vice-President, has agreed to chair our 65th Reunion Committee. We have agreed in principle that this reunion will have a few events, such as the Alumni Exercises and memorial services for deceased classmates, but will eliminate most other events as befits folks in their late 80s. We think that most folks will rather spend time getting together with classmates informally to tell war stories, catch up on families, etc. Please send any ideas or suggestions to either Jim or myself.

My best to all,

Tom (Horst)
