The 60th reunion banquet won’t cost you a penny! Your 55th banquet was fully funded, and a generous donor has once again provided funds so that you and a guest may attend your 60th reunion banquet at no charge! Now, how can you say no when someone else is paying the bill?!

Graduating from the first state university put a spark in our class like no other. In 1954, we held a Baby Reunion the first of its kind. The headlines made all the local papers and we intend to do the same 60 years later. Were not babies anymore, but we also are not buried. Its time to rise up and shake up Chapel Hill with a grand finale that will make headlines all over the country! Pull out the class blazers, put on your class hats and pack all your Carolina regalia the Old Guard is coming!

Don’t let transportation be the reason you say no. If you would like to carpool from your area, need a pickup service from the airport and/or need a car service from your location, please let Rick know. We want to ensure that transportation is not the obstacle for you to join us in Chapel Hill.

The Old Guard is coming! Ten years ago, you were inducted into the Old Students Club. We have a special surprise for you in May. We’ll keep you in suspense for now!
