Yes, we were highlighting classes through l972 as we had members from those classes working on the committee and sending out information/invitations. Town Hall holds 200 people at a time; we are currently at l25 reserved/paid, with 20 more "I will attend". If you are interested in attending, love to have you join us..

It is my understanding that this event is open to all classes, including those of us who graduated after 1972. Is that correct???
