60th REUNION

The Class of 1956 - 60th Reunion

The class of 1956 held their 60 year reunion the weekend of September 23-25, 2016.  Everyone had a wonderful time reminiscing and visiting with classmates and friends - some attending for the first time in 60 years!

If anyone else would like a copy of the group photo or the CD with photos from all events, the photo is $10, the CD is $15, or you can get both for only $20 including postage. Just send an email to Patty at lvowl@aol.com or give her a call at (702) 876-6660 - or just send your check payable to LVHS Class of 1956, to Patty Haack, 1854 Taylorville Street, Las Vegas NV 89135.  

Since only 54 of our classmates (out of 230 on our current mailing list) have joined this website, we will continue to send out a newsletter every six months or so.  Over the years, the newsletter has been a great vehicle to keep us in touch with one another and to provide me with a way to keep up with all of you and your current addresses. Don't forget to send in your updates!

Many thanks to all of you that attended our reunion events and helped make them such a success.  Thanks also to our great committee, listed below, for all their efforts!

Please make use of this website and stay in touch with each other, which is really important at this stage of our lives!
