Class 60th Reunion
Rock Island High School Class of 1954
Your Class Reunion
Committee announces the date of your 60th class reunion to be held
at the Pinnacle Country Club, Milan, on Saturday, September 27th,
2014. We were here for our 45th reunion and all had a good time, and
since remodeling the location is even nicer!
The Friday night mixer
will take place at the Rock Island Elks
Lodge in Rock Island at 23rd Street and 5th Avenue. In the heart of downtown ! Rocky will be
having a home football game that night and we will have free tickets available.
Exact times, menu,
costs, and your reservations will follow in June with a request for information
to be put in a booklet, and requesting your help in locating class members that
we have been unable to find for many
years. Amazingly ! 66% of our classmates
are still with us, and this would be a great time to attend this event; as the
years catch-up with us.......
Mark your calendar ! Dig
out your memories! And prepare to share the highlights of your life with those
dear friends who 60 years ago were just beginning to venture out into this
like you did..........

that they don't recognize you."
