Dear '69 Classmates,

I am looking forward to seeing many of you in Hanover next month at our 55th Reunion.   I know, however, that a majority of classmates will not be attending in person, so we have arranged for two sessions of the Reunion program to be available virtually: the Memorial Service honoring our departed classmates (1:30 - 3:00 PM ET on Tuesday, June 11) and the Class Meeting (3:30 - 4:30 PM ET on Wednesday, June 12).  Both will be distributed as Zoom links.

Under our recently revised Class Constitution, classmates who attend Class Meeting virtually, as well as those who attend in person, are eligible to vote, and there are matters on the agenda (see below) that will require a vote.  Of particular importance is the vote on class officers who will serve the next five years (July 1, 2024 - June 30, 2029), through our 60th (!) Reunion.  

If you would like to participate virtually in either or both of these sessions, please email Peter Elias at no later than Monday, June 3rd, and he will send you the Zoom links.

All the best,

Jim Staros '69
Class President
