UNH Reunion

September 2, 2019 by Eric Halvorson (Register to contact)

Labor Day; another summer over too quickly. It reminds me that time can go by almost without notice and have events sneak up on us. Many of us Central grads went on to UNH in the fall of 1966, becoming the UNH Class of 1970. Where'd the time go? Next year, our class will be celebrating its 50th reunion, June 5-7, 2020.. Sounds far away, doesn't it? Well, a few of us have already started planning events and programs for that weekend. Alums will be hearing more from us over the next months in advance of our celebration, but I hope you'll log it into your calendars for now so it doesn't sneak up on you. And, by the way, the committee would welcome your help and your good ideas, so if you'd like to join our merry band, let me know. I hope you all had a great summer, a happy Labor Day, and a great fall.
