The class meeting focused primarily on early planning and staffing for our very important 60th Reunion in 2021. The reunion theme will be "Great Journeys". Jon Greenleaf has designed the 60th Reunion logo which is posted on the top of this webpage.

Reunion Co-Chairs: Pauline Degenfelder, Carol Franklin, and Jim Moore

Our Reunion Co-Chairs have begun assembling a team of volunteers with areas of responsibility as listed below under each co-chair. Pauline notes: "I am grateful to this team for once again being willing to share their talents to provide our classmates with an extraordinary reunion experience. Although 81% overall of those surveyed after our 55th Reunion were satisfied, there were several opportunities for improvement, particularly in transportation and housing. These areas will receive extra attention."
