PLANNING FOR THE 55TH REUNION IS ALREADY UNDERWAY, WITH THE KICK OFF COMMITTEE MEETING UNDER OUR BELT.

First of all I want to thank all of those who came to the first reunion planning meeting. It was so wonderful to see all the smiling faces, and I am so grateful for all those who are willing to help out, because I truly could not do this without you.
It was the consensus of the group that our 50th was a huge success, so it would be hard to top that one. The River Spirit was a great venue, but we are going to check some other venues just to compare. I like the idea of having the reunion in a hotel so that people from out of town (or who don’t want to drive at night) can stay at the venue. Special thanks to Jim Gotwals for providing our treasury report. Thanks also to the many generous classmates who donated to our 50th reunion, we have about $3600 towards this reunion.
We are looking at several dates in October with the hope that we will have cooler weather. We narrowed it down to the weekend of either October 7th or 14th.
We also discussed the best ways to communicate information about the reunion and determined that we need a combination of social media and email. We need to network with the contacts we have to try and locate classmates who we may have missed. I do maintain a website for the class, http://www.tulsacentral68.com, but I have absolutely no expertise in this area, so if anyone has website building experience, I could use help!
While this reunion is in the very early stages of planning, the more people we have involved, the better the reunion. We have set the next planning meeting for Monday, February 20th at 2:00 at the Vault again. Would love to see even more classmates and get more input and suggestions for another fantastic reunion.
Hope to see you in February!
