 Consider a donation 

We are so happy that  many were able to join us for the reunion in 2015.  We had a blast including alumni from classes of 1979 and 1981,this year.   Even if you are unable to attend, please consider a donation of $5 to $10 to help with ongoing expenses (e.g. $120 every year for our website and domain name.).  The reunion itself has some overhead such as printing and postage (over $400,  $500 deposit for Scheman,  just to mention a few).  

Names of donors (but not amounts) will be acknowledged on the Homepage.  If you prefer your name is NOT listed, please send an email to Kathy.  (
