Countdown to 30

Back in late 2004, when Mark Davis contacted me about our 25th class reunion, little did I know what kind of response and interest this class would have in remaining in contact with one another. Most of us have scattered to the four winds and rarely get a chance to see each other. From the 15 or 20 information sheets that were left over from the 20th reunion, I set out (with the help of countless others) to roundup as many classmates as possible to celebrate (although a year late) our 25th year after graduating from dear old "Chuck High". In 2005, we were able to have 26 of our some 175 classmates attend a gathering at Troy University in September, 2005. We vowed to try to have something annually, for as many as could attend. As it has turned out, we have managed to hold true to that promise. In 2006 and 2007, the gatherings were small. The upside to that was there were new attendees that were not able to make it in 2005. As we quickly approach that 30 year milestone, a number of your classmates have been working diligently behind the scenes to make this event something to remember. We are working to secure a venue, food choices, entertainment, and other events to mark this point in our legacy. Stay tuned, we have more to come...
