10/ 10/ 2010, a date to remember! The '58 Mini Reunion will be held in Denver, Colorado. Widows planning on attending need to check out the Class Events site at <http://www.west-point.org/class/usma1958/events.htm>.
'58 is known for its close bond and warm welcome.
The activities are well planned and the opportunities to "see and do" are a fine way to feel at home with the whole group.
As you make your decision to attend, send us an email here at <email@example.com>, and we can assist you and start planning for a widow's get-together in Denver !
We suggest you make your hotel reservations now even if you are unsure, you can always cancel, but it may be difficult to be at the Reunion hotel or close by if you wait too long.
Widows are usually accompanied by someone from her husband's company or a close friend. Other widows will be there to offer you immediate friendship. Often widows have shared rooms to keep the expenses down and have found a good friend in the process.
