Class of 1971 - 45th Year Class Reunion

Falcon Classmates,

It has been 5 years since our last gathering. Now, we may be 5 years older chronologically, but 5 years younger for some who are in the 2nd, or 8th, or 16th or 25th childhood! Guess it depends on how you feel...eh? Well, we’ve got this reunion lined up and ready to roll. Now we just need your participation. We had an excellent turnout for the 40-Yr Reunion and we are looking for an even better showing this year.

Following the 40-Yr Reunion, the Core Planning Committee, as well as comments from many of you, suggested CASUAL gatherings this year, with a more formal effort for the 50th Reunion. Well, YOU HAVE GOT IT! We will all gather Friday night at Elsa’s where you can order as you please. Then Saturday afternoon / evening, we will enjoy a PIG ROAST along with chicken and side dishes, desserts, and beverages at Gilbert’s Party Barn. Other FE Classes have accessed Gilbert’s venue for their reunions and reported to us that Gilbert’s did an excellent job for them.
