The committee members worked hard to make this reunion very special and they succeeded.  The comments from attendees were many and all were positive.  We had a great turnout although a few were unable to make it here due to the air travel restrictions put in place earlier in the week.

If you missed the reunion, please enjoy it vicariously on this and the linked pages.  We hope you will be able to join us for the 50 year reunion, although this one will be hard to top.

Boat Cruise on the fabulous Duck.  The Duck is the newest, most modern, fun & casual passenger vessel in Chicago.  The 500-passenger ship boasts three spacious decks with festive, brightly colored interiors & bountiful all-you-can-eat buffets of creative entrees, appetizers & desserts.   The entire top enclosed deck was reserved just for us.



  Saturday Evening Dinner at the DuPage Club.  What an elegant event this was.  Once again, we ate well & renewed old acquaintances.  We also had our Class Picture taken.
