Our 65th is only months away and your committee is hard at work. One of the first things we have to do is get a rough idea of our expected attendance.

To help us do that, please fill in the enclosed card indicating your current expectations for returning to our 65th Reunion and return it to our Class of 1951 liaison at Amherst, Sandy Riley. (This commits you to nothing. We simply need a rough idea of expected attendance for planning purposes.)

Reunion dates are Wed., May 25 – Sun., May 29 (Memorial Day weekend)

Key events specifically scheduled for the Class of 1951 are:

Friday afternoon – Memorial Service led by Wally


Friday night – Dinner in Valentine

Saturday night – Class Dinner in Valentine with Officer

and Nominating Committee reports, etc.

Housing for the Class of 1951 (and earlier classes) will be in James. At no charge to us, the College is providing housing for each alumni and widow, plus one guest, in James; continental breakfasts; and an open bar. The fee per person will probably be less than $100.

For your general information, over the Homecoming Weekend the reunion committee, class officers, other classmates and spouses (in other words, most everyone at Homecoming) met to plan the reunion and made the following decisions:

$1700 of the Class of 1951’s current available funds (roughly $2700) will be used to pay for some of our reunion costs, thus allowing us to minimize attendance fees.

Subcommittee chairs were appointed as follows:

Attendance – Phil Knowles

Decorations – Fred Luddy

Memorial Service – Wally Anderson

Music – Fred Luddy and Hank Williams

Souvenirs – Lu Tingley

Words of the Wise – Dick Sexton

Hope to see you at Reunion!  VAN TINGLEY
