Class of 1965


Dear Classmates,
It is with your safety, health, and peace of mind under consideration that the Reunion Committee is suggesting that we postpone this years' 55th reunion until Fall of next year before which we hope that a vaccine has been developed and available so that we can gather without the current apprehension and misgivings COVID-19 now presents for that otherwise fun-filled and anticipated gathering.  We are obviously disappointed in having to announce this, but we think it's in all of our best interests. 
The 55th Reunion Committee (current members Patty Shank, Darlene Smith, Bob McCanna; and others soon to be signed-up: Skip Hockley, Bud Knouse, Shermaine Hodge Rideout, and Milt Beebe) plan to reassemble (virtually or otherwise) early next Spring to assess the status of safely gathering in the Fall of 2021, and at that time we will issue another email message notifying you of our early 2021 planning efforts.  In the meantime, we will be contacting the High School Alumni Page Point Of Contact to post notice of this years' reunion postponement on our class page (hereby done) and later on add other useful information to that page with regard to reunion news when we have it.
For your additional information, we will also be sending out postcards to each of our classmates that don't have email addresses (or that we don't know about), alerting them to the postponement.  Chances are, we'll also be sending out another email message like this one to catch the few classmates on email we missed with this message.
Between now and next Spring, feel free to contact Reunion Committee Members below for updates to email addresses, USPS addresses, or other items that would be useful for the Reunion Committee or our Classmates to know about or consider:
Patty Shank (
If you'd be interested in joining the Committee for next years' planning efforts, we'd also be interested in hearing from you. 
All the very best to each of you, 
CHS Class of 1965 55th Reunion Committee
