We are making a special effort to reach out to every classmate we can find and make sure they are enthusiastically invited.  For some classmates, the cost to attend is a stretch.  To offset some of their expenses, we are asking those who can afford it to make an additional donation for those who could use a bit of help.  Your contribution will go to assisting another classmate’s attendance.  The Reunion Committee will use its best judgment to determine distribution of the funds. Please contact us with questions.



Donations will be used to cover reunion costs and ensure as many classmates who want to attend are able to. (Not a 501(c)(3) organization)
