 Why Should I Attend This Reunion? -- by: Tom SouthardJan. 18, 2010 - 11:39:00AM  
For Many Reasons!

Your regular friends are sick of hearing about your kids & grandkids.

You'll reminisce with some of your oldest & best friends.

You don't have to lie about your age.

Rekindle or begin new relationships.

If you don't go, others will talk behind your back.

It won't be repeated for at least 10 years.

Do you really want to be remembered by your yearbook photo?

You can finally find out what happened to ......

 
 Who's Coming! -- by: Tom SouthardDec. 30, 2009 - 6:18:50AM  
Hi Frances,

The RSVP is 84 but we know there are many more who said they wanted to come but never RSVP'ed. The sign up and pay button will appear in January 2010 on our site and we expect well over 150 to attend based on initial conversations and e-mails. You will get an e-mail and/or mailing on the reunion and how to sign up and reserve your seats.
