Understand that an all fifties class reunion is in the planning. Any truth to this?

We had our last "all fifties" class reunion in Bozeman in 1954. It was great fun and wonderful to see friends from other classes. The reason is was the last was the planners said it was getting to be too much work anymore in finding old alumni. Kudo's to those who are planning this in Miles City.

The proposed all '50s class reunion is still viable and under consideration, as far as I know. We had a meeting back in 2005 at which it was pretty clear that no class from the remaining '50s wanted to host an all '50s in conjunction with the own 50th anniversary.
So, it's been on "hold" since. Rumors come up from time to time and the most recent is that the class of '59 is interested. Tom Clarke initially told me that his class was not interested. But that seems to have changed - if rumor is correct. I need to visit with him as those of us locally who have had our 50th are eager (for the most part) to get an all '50s going.
I'm happy to see this subject come up and hope we can keep the conversation going.

Just got an update from Tom Clarke,'59. His class is receptive to helping with an all '50s reunion in 2009. He proposes a meeting to be held this July when a fellow classmate also interested in such an enterprise will be in town. We are to "stay tuned." There is a committee-of-sorts all ready to give a hand when that occassion happens. You are welcome to join us if you are interested.

2009? Won't most of you succumb to old age by then?

Hail to you, Richard! I just visited the topic on classmates lost to death. It is amazing how many of the "young" ones are already gone. Keep in mind people, the older you get the sweeter the time. Cherish it while you can. If you live to be 7?, how much time do you have left? Your dad and I just enjoyed our 50th reunion.

Gunnar, I appreciate your humor - and don't think many of us haven't thought about your observation.
