2004 Reunion Committee

Meeting Information:
Mike Beshears, 25 Year Reunion Committee Chairperson, has scheduled the committee's next meeting for Sunday, July 25, 2004, 2-4 p.m. at First Christian Church, Room C013, 1130 N. Main St., Kernersville, NC. With our reunion year here, there's a great deal of work to be done and most of it has to be completed sooner rather that later. Also, with a class our size, we need as many volunteers as possible in order to bring about a successful reunion. If you're interested in helping out,
contact Mike as soon as you can.

Operation Eagle Dog

Even if you're unable to assist with the formal reunion committee, you can still help out by participating in "Operation Eagle Dog." "Operation Eagle Dog" is the codename for our new effort to get the Class Directory up to 100 percent. Consider yourselves drafted. (Yes, the class webmaster spent entirely too much time in the military.)

The success of "Operation Eagle Dog" depends on you making a point of locating your old high school friends and getting them reconnected with us here on our web site. If each of us can find two or three classmates and have them find others, we can get the Class Directory up to 100 percent in no time. Doing so will relieve the 25-year reunion committee of the locator task, thus freeing them to focus their energies on preparations for our next reunion in 2004.

Why not do your part in making our silver reunion a soaring success? C'mon people, bird-dog for us! Get out there and flush out our lost fellow Fighting Eagles!
