Gordon Freedman ‘55

Gordon Freedman ‘55 shared that Saturday, February 20, 2021, the class of 1955 held a virtual 66th class reunion. 23 classmates signed on for a delightful one hour gathering of some classmates from one end of the country to the other and from New York to Florida. They caught up with each other’s lives since the 50th reunion, talking about jobs, children and grandchildren. Sadly they lost one classmate Gary Bass several weeks after the meeting.  He recommends that this is a very safe and travel-less way to see and hear from each other. We are planning another Zoom meeting this fall perhaps for homecoming time.
