55th Reunion Announcement

May 2022

Dear Class of 1967!

It’s been a quick five years since our 50th class reunion in 2017.  On behalf of the Reunion Committee, we are pleased to announce the 55th reunion of the class of 1967 will be held on Saturday and Sunday, October 1 - 2, 2022.  For the first time, our main celebration will occur on a Sunday afternoon to allow everyone to drive home safely during daylight hours.

The past years have been tumultuous for many of us due to Covid-19 and other illnesses.  We hope you, your family, and your friends are well.  The pandemic has slowed down (and hopefully soon to be eliminated), and we are adjusting our lives to “a new normal.”  Now it’s time to celebrate the 55th reunion of our class. 

Here are the reunion weekend details:

  • Saturday, October 1 – There are many activities in and around Lynchburg to enjoy.  Such activities include museums, Old City Cemetery, wineries, breweries, orchards, and D-Day Memorial in Bedford.  A list of suggested activities is available on the website.  None of these activities is linked to our reunion.
  • Saturday, October 1 – Meet and Greet, Hilton Garden Inn, 4025 Wards Road, 7 - 9 p.m.
  • Sunday, October 2 – Reunion lunch, Brookville Ruritan Club, 311 Beverly Hills Circle, 1 -  5 p.m.  The lunch is being catered by County Smoak.  This is a casual event, and we plan to eat outside, weather permitting.  Otherwise, the lunch will be inside.  No alcoholic beverages will be sold, but you may bring your own.
  • The cost will be $40 per person.
