Classmates Dine Together May 1 in Castle Rock 


Unfortunately Mother Nature took charge on March 14 and forced us to cancel the class dinner we had planned for that date, but the good news is that  it was re-scheduled for Wednesday, May 1, 2024, at 5:30 p.m. at La Loma Restaurant in Castle Rock.  A dozen classmates plus spouses and significant others dined together and enjoyed a pleasant early spring evening.

       At a meeting on Saturday, March 30, 2024, in Pueblo, the continued planning for our three-day 60th Reunion kicked into high gear.  The reunion is set for the dates of Friday, September 20, 2024, Saturday, September 21, 2024, and Sunday, September 22, 2024.
