Classmates, you asked for it… you’ve got it!  Several classmates have contacted members of the planning group about the possibility of a 55-year reunion in 2024.  It’s confirmed now, so start making plans!

This reunion will be greatly scaled back to just one day.  (This does not preclude smaller get-togethers on Friday or Sunday, if desired; planning is on your own.)  Here are the details:

Place:  Reynolds Lodge at Lake Shawnee
(Ctrl-click to follow the link to Google Maps)
3315 SE Tinman Circle, Topeka
A great venue for our reunion!  This rustic shelter has heat and AC, lots of seating, a kitchen, restrooms, and it’s disability-friendly.  A large, partially covered patio out back opens up to a lot of green space and a great view of the lake.

Date:   Saturday, September 21, 2024

Time:   1:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Food Served:  4:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.   Hot meal dinner buffet similar to food served at the Warrens' home Friday night at 50th Reunion Reception in 2019.
Suggested Donation: $10 per person to help cover food costs.

To sign up, just send an email to Gayle Reichman Stine, bsketgal@yahoo.com by September 1, 2024.  Include your name and the name of your guest(s).  That’s it!  No registration process on our website, no registration fees.  Just let us know your intentions.

Musicians: Please bring your instruments and prepare to jam!  There’s enough space to set up and get down with favorite tunes, old and new.  For start-time possibilities and other details, contact Steve Dyer, 785-341-3586 (voice or text; voicemail), steve@jackdyer.org .

Questions?  Contact Jenith Paris Hoover, 785-230-3135, robnjeni51@gmail.com; or Mark Neis, 785-354-1471, mark.neis@neismichaux.com .

You’ll want to be there!  If you've never attended one of our class reunions, c'mon and see what a fun and enjoyable time it can be.  If you've attended any or all of our past reunions, don't let this one slip by! As the Bee Gees declared, we’re “Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive!”

HELP US FIND OUR "MISSING" CLASSMATES!  While we have a pretty good handle on most of our classmates' whereabouts and contact information, a number of them are still "missing" -- we do not have a valid mailing address (or phone number, or email) for them in our records.  You may be able to help!  Please click on the "Missing Classmates" link on the left menu (3rd link from the top) and look over those names.  If you are in touch with any of these classmates, or know their current mailing address, phone number, or email, please contact Jenith Paris Hoover, 785-230-3135, robnjeni51@gmail.com or Mark Neis, 785-354-1471, mark.neis@neismichaux.com.
