Dear AVHS 1960 Classmate:

I hope this letter finds you and your families healthy and safe. It has been three months since I wrote to invite you to our 60th Reunion. Our committee has been at work planning and anticipating, but last week we realized the reunion would have to wait. While we did consider postponing until fall, that also seemed a risky proposition. It is a different world now, and we have no choice but to accept the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic. It is a life-threatening disease, and our age group is at greater risk.

A reunion is defined as a social gathering attended by members of a certain group of people who have not seen each other for some time. So, it will be 61 years when we gather again! The committee was unanimous in its decision to postpone to July 23-24, 2021.

Here is what you can expect in 2021:

January Save the Date announcement
April Registration materials will be sent
Friday, July 23 Dinner at Shannopin Country Club
Saturday, July 24 Picnic Lunch at Acord Park

I want to thank these classmates who have been so helpful and will continue to be helpful in our plans for the reunion:

Dave Gwyer, impetus behind making our Reunion happen
Beverly Makris Holmes, Pat Klicker Foltz, Sally Martin Schirnhofer: Coordinators
Dave Shombert: IT and classmate booklet
Georgia Murdock Berner, Donna Summers Moul, Jack Schneider, Joe Schulte, Don Beitel, Dave Sauer and Stephanie Dean: The A Team

Please let me know of address, phone and/or email changes. And if you have information about classmates who are listed as “Missing,” please pass that along to me. (See names included.)

We hope to see each and every one of you on July 23 and 24, 2021! In the meanwhile, what was it Carly Simon wrote in 1971? Anticipation… It is a long time to anticipate, but what a great moment it will be when we gather again!
