50-Year Reunion Plans

Your class reunion planning committee, chaired by Bob and Suzanne Segner, has been hard at work trying to put together a 50-year reunion you will all enjoy.  The Association of Former Students will send out the official reunion information and registration packet in early January, but we wanted to give you a “heads up” on what is currently in the works–all subject to change, of course.  But hopefully this is enough that you can begin making your travel plans.  Here is the tentative schedule:
