Informal Planning Session
Location: Chili's Restaurant on Eastman Road
Details: I thought it would be good to schedule an informal meeting to see who is available to help put something together.

I've been in touch with several classmates on Facebook, and a lot of you have expressed an interest in gathering together. I hope that several of you will want to gather together so we can put something firm in the works for next year - which will be our 35th year reunion. This is a planning meeting, so bring any ideas you have! Feel free to email me directly at the address below. Put "REUNION '78" in the subject line if you can.
