'68 50th Reunion 2018

Event Details

Hello '68 classmates -

Four months to go until the Final Reunion for the AAHS Class of 1968!

You've heard about it, saved the date, and saved your pennies. Here are the details to propel you to action – make hotel reservations, plane reservations, kennel reservations for the dog, arrangements for neighbors to feed the chickens/livestock, whatever it takes. We are hoping for a great turnout at this last reunion solely for the class of 1968.

Wait – you say you hated high school and a reunion is the last thing you want. But you did have friends and they want to know you are OK and may even want to get in touch. So, please, at least go to the reunion web site and leave a profile with your email address -


Hope you join us! Register for the reunion at above website.
