55 reunion Class 63 13/08/18

Fellow classmates (32 days until the 55th reunion),

 
The 55th reunion for the class of 63 is fast approaching and as summer flies by, the reunion committee continues making final arrangements for both evenings.  The response from the class of 63 has been tremendous. 
 
As promised, a list of attendees is now available on the class of 63 website. Please go to  the home page, click on the 55th reunion located on the top banner, and then click on attendees.  You do not have to formally log in. Please note, we have only listed those who have sent their checks to Frank Aiello.   We will update the attendees page  as checks are received. Checks will be accepted up to the restaurant cutoff date(still in the discussion phase). Checks received after that date will be handled on a case by case basis.    If you haven’t sent your check, now is the time to do it.  There are four classmates in this category.
