Decades Parties Planned for '70s and '80s Graduates

Feedback from past reunions has indicated that '70s and '80s grads would prefer a decade party, as opposed to separate class dinners. Both parties will be held on Saturday, July 16, at 6 p.m. The '70s Decade party will be held at The Hollywood Restaurant. The '80s Decade party will be held at the Dark Horse. Re-live your college days in your favorite haunts! All alumni who graduated in the 1970s or 1980s are encouraged to register today!
