These folks have worked tirelessly and consumed an untold amount of barbecue to make sure we all have a blast September 20-21.

The organizing committee asked me to remind everyone of a class-wide Happy Birthday gathering, Saturday June 25th, 7 pm until, Mayo Hotel rooftop bar. See below.

Reunion Music Requests?

The reunion committee has hired a DJ who takes requests, so the question is on the table: what were the most (or least) memorable songs of our high school years, and why?

For example, Tim Holt likes “Freddie’s Dead” by Curtis Mayfield. Whenever he hears it, Tim says, it reminds him one time when he got thrown out while rounding third base trying for home. Whatever. I never played baseball.

How about it, you Aging Eagles? What music takes you back to the Smokehole, the Restless Ribbon or the 51 Drive In? Let us know in the comments.
