Class Reunion

June 14, 2016 by Linda Weise GerkenBose (Register to contact)

On June 7, 2017 we will have graduated 50 years. I am posting this to inquire if there is any information about a possible class reunion next summer. I would be very interested in attending one. My maiden name was Weise. Please let me know as soon as possible because I no longer live in the Forest Grove or Oregon area. I would need do some planning to come. Looking forward to hearing from someone about this. Thank you very much.
