Class  60th  Reunion

         Rock Island High School Class of 1954




 Greetings Classmate!



           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 crazy world......

 just like you did..........



                                                                                       Your Reunion Committee

I've added 120 close up pictures from the 2004 reunion, taking them from larger pictures and blowing them up, some of them suffered technically but they are still recognizable. Enjoy. Click on the picture of Caffery,Cullett and Engstrom to see them.

"Old age is when your classmates are so old, bald and wrinkled that they don't recognize you."

One correction to the Booklet,  Carmen Bercheckas' email address is

"In the class, on the field..."

New artificial turf on Almquist Field.
