Grade School Reunions

Welcome to the Grade School Reunion page.

Several of our Grade School Classes have planned events in conjuntion with our 50th Class Reunion, as you can see below.  It's not too late!  Find a grade school classmate or two using the Classmate Profiles tab and plan something as simple as burgers at Hackney's or whatever suits your style. If you have a plan, email Joel Stevens at eths70@yahoo.com and we can help you spread the word to all of our website members.

Spread the word to classmates that may not have seen this list! What a wonderful opportunity this is to gather with your grade school friends before the big events! Thank you to all of you who stepped up to organize these gatherings:)
