Our hope for this 4th reunion is to see everyone return from previous years and to see some first timers from OC20-69. Louisville is a great town, inexpensive, and a day drive for many of our classmates.

Please set these dates on your calendar now. My promise is to make the reunion as inexpensive and enjoyable for you as possible.
