“Looking forward to this reunion as neither I nor my wife of 50 years made it to any of the last reunions”

“Looking forward to this event. I went to the 10 year and didn’t show until the 40th. Super glad I went!”

“I thought it would be fun, but it was even better than expected. So good to see everyone!”

“Thank you for reaching out. I appreciate your work and effort on what must be a very expansive and daunting project.  I have been living in Olympia for the last 30+ years but only know two members of our class in Olympia, off the top of my head. I will however, consider attending the reunion. Thank you again for the information. “

The created reunion page is very impressive.”
