Our East Troy Class of ’59 has held several most enjoyable class reunions. The 50th and 60th were held at Techny Towers in Waukegan, IL. At our 60th reunion, we invited those who were Seniors when we were Freshmen and those who were Freshmen when we were Seniors and everyone in between. In other words, Alumni from Classes ET ’56 through ET ’62 were invited.
In a recent conversation, Class President Florian Wisniewski offered the thought: should we do the same for our 65th anniversary, that being in 2024. If SVD Alumni in that age group and including those from Miramar would be interested, contact this writer at email@example.com. This would not be a commitment but only an expression of interest. A commitment would not be necessary until 2024.
