Class of 1963 Get-Together

September 29, 2015 by Betty Shepherdj Williams (Register to contact)

At our 50th reunion in 2013 we decided that we would keep in touch by meeting each summer. We determined that as many as could would meet on a set date at a set place (decided each year) for as many as could attend. In 2014 we had a picnic at the Caldwell Cabin on Big Stony Creek. In 2014, Jun3e 27, 4 PM we met at Friends and Family Restaurant for a Dutch meal. We had around 30 attendees. It was a success. Two classmates whom I had not seen since graduation - Walter Abrams and Julie Armbrister Criss, came. I am sending out "feelers" to classmates for suggestions on a date and time for 2016. I hope to hear from many. I am available at my email and Facebook. Jean Helpler Lucas set up a Facebook page for the Class of 1963. I post items to that as often as needed. If you have access to Facebook, you might want to view that page. Come on 1963 Grads, let me hear from you.
