1970 Speed Classmates
Our Golden Reunion is less than two years away and we are attempting to gauge interest in your participation and events for preliminary planning purposes. U of L’s Golden Reunions are typically held during the week of Homecoming, which occurs during the month of October and therefore, in our case, would be October of 2020. The exact date will not be determined until the Homecoming Football Game is scheduled, which should be determined by February of 2020.
Tentatively our committee has put together a very rough agenda with both structured activities (as best we can guess) and optional activities. Keep in mind that this is very preliminary but will more than likely be adjusted based on your input and level of interest. Below is the rough schedule and all events include spouses or significant others.
||Cocktail and Dinner at the University Club for Just our Speed Class or possibly dinner with a UL sponsored Wilson Wyatt Awards, which includes Cocktails, dinner, and awards including recognition of the Golden Reunion classes.
