  • Encourage your classmates to attend the 50th Anniversary event.
  • Arrange a class or multiyear gathering during the celebration.
  • Do as much or as little as you choose—recruit friends to help make it easy and fun.
We Can Help:
  • Provide class contact lists to build your social networks.
  • Forward an email to classmates on your behalf.
  • Post activities and class gathering details on the anniversary website.
  • Set up an RSVP or registration form for your activity.
