Tick ... Tick ... Tick ... Countdown CONTINUES To 35th Reunion!

We just passed the seven-month countdown (shorter than most pregnancies, so that's something!) ...

Planning continues in its early stages to make the Class of 1981's 35th Reunion a "dontcha dare miss" (as 16 Magazine editor Gloria Stavers used to say ... what?  I'm the only person here who used to religiously read 16?  All righty then).

If you haven't read the post-Homecoming letter from our amazing co-chairs, Sam and Liz DeSimone, that should have popped up in your e-mail box, we've also pasted it here on the class webpage so be sure to check it out ... it's got lots of tidbits of info as well as some updates on our committees ...

Again, we welcome and invite anyone who'd like to be an active part of the planning (or even a slightly passive part of it) to step up and volunteer ... it will not be all work and sweat, but rather fun, rewarding, and an additional way to get in touch with your classmates to make this a truly memorable long weekend!

If you're a Facebook person (or would like to be), please come join the interactive fun on our Class Page there (just hit "request to join" and one of the admins -- Kim Hedberg, Liz Andersen or website editor Lisa Winston -- will add you! (And keep the spammers out -- seriously, we've had more than a few people try to join. So if you're using a totally new and unrecognizable name, please let us know who you are!)

Also, if you REALLY love social media, we invite you to submit an awesome and unique hashtag that we can use for our social media accounts (Facebook! Twitter! Instagram!) for the event itself.

SO, to recap, class:  Reunion! Volunteers! Join the fun! Save the dates (May 26-29, 2016)! Updates here! Join Facebook Group http://tinyurl.com/Amherst35th ...
