there are places faces I'll remember....

Ok, so I thought long and hard about putting this's not complete...there are a bunch of pages missing...the names are not exactly alphabetical....
But then I decided, what the heck, let's get this up, imperfect or not!

go on...turn the page...

actually, that there are some faces missing reminds me to remind you that there are many classmates still on our "missing" list--can you help us locate some additional classmates?

going postal

Our graduating class had 550+ students, we have about ~150 email addresses, there are around 100 "missing", and so that means we are mailing out about 300 letters this week with information about the reunion. If you think we don't have your address, how about contacting us to update your info? Because you can read everything you need here online! And save on postage!

Here's the letter we are sending [pdf], and the registration form [pdf]. You can also signup online.
