If you are still undecided . . . we want you there!
let's make this a Class of 1967 Event!

A planning committee has been working to plan this- our first official reunion since 1987.
You do not want to miss this opportunity to renew old friendships, relive old memories and share what you have been up to over the past 40 years. We experienced a unique time during our high school years: the Sixties was both a formative time in our nation’s history and for Grand Island, with the construction and opening of its first High School. And we were all a part of creating the school and its history. Fill out the enclosed form and let us know whether you will be able to attend. Whether you can attend or not- let us know of some of the important or not so important events you have been through since we last were together. We also continue to need help in tracking down lost classmates. If you have been in touch with any classmate and have a contact number or address, please send it along so we can contact them and make sure they are included in this great event. We are opening our reunion events to the Classes of ’66 and ’68 as well, so be sure and spread the word. Rooms have been held at a special rate at the Island Holiday Inn- you can make your reservations for these dates by calling: 716-773-1111, and referring to Event Class of 1967 Reunion, Oct 12-14. Your committee includes: Vickie Lynde, Reg Schopp, Dave Miller, Steve Tharp, Carol Hamlin, Phyllis Killian, and a number of others who have generously offered their help to make sure this event is a BIG success.

Classmate Offers Help With Class Of '67 Fortieth Reunion

Hi Teddy Linenfelser,
   I read every week looking for news of old friends, changes to the Island, etc. I graduated GIHS Class of '67 - the second graduating class. This June will be 40 years since we graduated and I've been watching to see if there are plans for a reunion. So far - have seen nothing (in print anyhow). Is anyone aware of any plans in the making?
   I live 8 hours away from the Island but would be more than willing to help plan and put together a reunion if someone out there would take the helm.
Vicky (Huer) Lynde
