40 Year Reunion! Save the Date!

Lancers! Save the date for our fortieth reunion. Yep. Forty years! We will be congregating:
October 18, 2014
Tacoma Golf & Country Club
13204 Country Club Drive SW, Lakewood, WA 98498.
We will provide further details as they become available, so please keep checking back!

URGENT: We want to find as many alumni as possible! Please send your contact information to: ***** and/or ***** Note: The only persons having access to this account are Reunion Committee members Lt. Col.(ret) Mark Wriggle and Jo Luckow. If you are aware of any classmates who are no longer with us, please bring this to our attention, as well.
We are currently looking to host a Happy Hour on Friday night, and possibly brunch or other activities for Sunday. We are also looking at activities in the lead-up that week before. Discounted hotel room rates will be posted next week.
Remember: the next reunion will be held when we are nearly 70 years old, so if you want to hit the dance floor without your walker, THIS is the year to attend!
Note: if you have photos you can scan, please send them to the email address above, and they will be added here. We are particularly looking for that cap and gown photo taken in the gym. Thanks!

Found a classmate.

I found Laura Vollentine on the "Lakewood" webpage
. Her picture is next to mine in the 1968 yearbook. She played flute in band. She is here in Spokane and we met yesterday for coffee and got caught up. We'll be meeting again tomorrow for a walking tour of downtown and Riverfront Park. Sadly, she'll be leaving town because she can't handle the snow and ice.
