It's a new year and we're back to putting the finishing touches on a great event. One we hope will make you curioius enough and comfortable enough to want to risk attending. We'll keep you up to date by our email newsletter and that won't be too frequent.
Over the last year we've accomplished a lot. Starting with only about 50 classmembers in our database out of approximately 610 graduated, that number seems to vary, we set about the search process to find the rest. We've located about 500 and, sadly, discovered that 56 members are deceased. We're still looking for about 80.
Our next goal is to get as many of the interested classmates to connect via email. This will make it a lot easier to communicate and, when the time comes, to setup the registration pages for any events. Obviously, since you are reading this you may not be one of those we need to move over to electronic connection. If you haven't then update us by clicking here.
This being a time of technology and social networks many classmates have connected on our class Facebook page. There are 105 registered there, not all are '70 members. Much of the reunion discussion and idea generation begins there. Not everyone is on Facebook and for those who may want to connect with other classmates you can register for this website. There are 89 classmates registered on the website. At this point we have about 175 classmates email addresses. That's pretty good but 300 would be nice.
We've said it before but we'll say it again, we won't share your information with anybody without your permission. If you want to contact someone who our data shows we have contact information for then we are going to ask them first. The same goes for anyone who wants to contact you, we'll ask you first. If you are registered on the class website you can email anyone there but it will show your current email but not theirs. If you are on Facebook that is public to the extent your current settings allow.
From time to time we hold group conference calls for planning purposes. Everyone is welcome to join in. The details for that conference call are made available in a separate email which you will have to ask to be added to if you aren't on it already.
