Our goal is to include a great variety of our Class’s activities and accomplishments. At the top of the page, I have saved all the Bio’s from the 1967 reunion for your perusal. We depend on you to help us in achieving that goal. In order to contribute your personal perspective, you need only email your photos and other material to Billy Dale at When completed, you will find fascinating information about all sorts of things on this website. The content is pretty much up to you. Your classmates would like to hear from you: your outlook on life, joys and disappointments (NO POLITICS), – otherwise all is fair game.
