MAYVILLE, New York - The list has jumped to 30 names for Classmates from the SWCS Class of '66 who say they are heading to the July 2, 2016 class reunion at the Chautauqua Suites. In addition to the 30 names posted, I have talked with several other class members who I am sure are going.
By the way, my email list for the Class of '66 seems to be having serious issues. If you want to receive notices of these website updates, the most reliable way is to sign up for them on this site. In the upper left hand corner is the form. You just plug in your email address. You can opt out of getting the notices anytime you want. And if you think you are going to attend and want your name posted, shoot me an email here. I'll get your name up right away. See you next summer, I hope!
MAYVILLE, New York - The date was set just a week ago for the reunion. It will be July 2, 2016. Now we have a place for the SWCS Class of '66 50th Reunion next summer: Chautauqua Suites.
Randy Carlson and Jim Lindell secured the site for the reunion and have made preliminary arrangements. Rooms can be reserved under a discounted rate of $141.99, but will go quickly. You can cancel up to three days before the reunion. The promo code is SWCS66. The dinner and DJ will be $45 per person. More details on the meal and other activities (maybe a tour of Southwestern?) will be coming soon. In the meantime, if you think you might go, be sure to let me know so I can post your name on this website (upper left hand corner...). I am sure there are more folks leaning towards attending than the names I have on the current list. Just shoot an email in this direction (EMAIL HERE) and I will get your name posted. See you next July, if not before.
