In Memoriam Page Missing Classmates 40th reunion pix

Our 45th Class Reunion was held on Saturday, October 26, 2013 at Iron Lakes Country Club. The festivities were great, and we hope everyone who attended enjoyed their evening. We will be keeping up with this website before our next reunion in 2018, so you will see periodic changes on this site between now and then. Be sure to check in from time to time, and keep us informed of any address changes, phone number changes, or email changes. Email is the most efficient way for us to stay in touch, so if you have been using a work email, please let us know of your personal email as more of us move into retirement. Thanks to everyone for helping us keep this site up to date with information.

We are still looking for someone to head up the reunion committee for our 50th reunion in 2018. Experienced members of the committee from the last two reunions will be happy to continue serving with the planning for this coming event.

On Friday, January 16, 2015, the Allen Lady Canaries Basketball Team officially recognized our class for the gift we raised during the planning for, and during, our 45th reunion. The 1968 team had been the first girl's basketball squad in school history to be a varsity team instead of an honors team, so we had two members of that squad represent our class at the game that night. Allen's Athletic Director, Mr. Scott Cooperman, introduced Nancy Eitner Grosman and Pat Lutte Quay to the crowd in attendance, and then added the following information:

"Last fall, the Class of 1968, presented a check to Coach Broyles and the Lady Canaries Basketball Program in the amount of $2558. The Class of 1968 wanted to assist Coach Broyles in getting off to a good start in his first season as the Lady Canaries Head Girls Basketball Coach. This past summer, this gift was used to purchase team Travel Uniforms for the Varsity and JV teams, long sleeve shirts that could be worn on Fridays in school, and to assist some student-athletes with the purchase of team sneakers for the 2014-2015 season. In recognition of the financial support that the Class of 1968 has shown, Coach Broyles, along with the rest of his staff and the Lady Canaries Basketball players would like to present a framed team picture wearing the new team travel uniform to the members of the Class of the Class of 1968 who are in attendance this evening as a way to say thank you for supporting the 2014-2015 Lady Canaries Basketball program."

Below are some photos from the evening.

One of our classmates with an AOL email address marked our last email notice of class news as spam, so until that person lets me know that they have corrected the situation, or I cancel that address from the email list, I may not be able to email anyone with an AOL email address...
