Class of 1954 65th Reunion

Class of 1954 65th Reunion
April 24-27, 2019

Welcome Classmates and Widows of the Great Class of 1954 to your 65th Reunion Web Page. As you may already know the reunion is going to be held at the Loews Hotel on West Street once again. Our intention is to eliminate, or at least minimize, the need for any of the attendees to use their own vehicle to get to any of the scheduled events. With that in mind we have made one major change to the usual Battalion and Company parties that were individually scheduled for one of the evenings.  Instead we are going to have another dinner scheduled at the hotel on Thursday. We are looking to have this be a very informal event with seating arranged by Battalions for a barbecue or something similar. 

Summary of Major Events

·      Wednesday evening: Welcome Aboard Reception, Loews Hotel         
             Check-in area at the Loews Hotel
