Our 50th is right around the corner (YIKES) and we are very excited that we are going to be able to have our big event. We have all been feeling a bit cooped up and are ready to step out . . . so, . . . here’s the scoop.

Debbie’s email is email@example.com. When you Venmo or send the check please let Debbie know your name, how many guests you will have and your guest(s) name(s).
Entertainment – We will be streaming music from the 50’s. 60’s and 70’s. Since the music jam was such a success last reunion, we are also going to set up the stage for music. We will have a PA system, some instruments, microphones, etc. If you play or sing and would be interested in jamming, please email Dave Brody at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Videos and Pictures – Please send us information about what you have been up to. Video’s, pictures, letters about your interests, your families, what you have been doing and what you are currently doing.
We have set up a link so that you can send the information to us. Open your browser on your computer or phone and type “memfox.io” in the browser. It will take you to Memory Fox site and ask you for a code. Type “AMHERST” and “continue” and a page will open. You will see some questions we made up to get you thinking. At the bottom of the page are options to make a video, upload pictures, etc. Have fun with it! Be crazy! If you have any trouble or need help, email Sue Miano at email@example.com. Your contributions will become a slide show that we will run during the reunion.
Finding our Friends – We have been provided by the Alumni Office with an excel doc containing the information that they have regarding the whereabouts of our class members. This is information that the classmate him or herself put into the system by signing up for the Alumni Website. Below is a list of classmates for whom we don’t have information. If you know how to reach any of the people on that list, please contact them and ask them to email Mike DeWein at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mike will add them to the list and forward current information to them.
Covid – New York State is loosening up a bit. While we can’t predict the future, if vaccinations continue to be given at the current rate, anyone who wants to be vaccinated should be able to do so by the beginning of July. The rules have just been changed and we are reviewing them but it looks like, if you are vaccinated, there won’t be a problem. If you have not been vaccinated, you will have to wear a mask and remain socially distant. We will be talking more about this with the management at the Iron Works and we will post updates.
We hope this email finds you happy and healthy and looking forward to our reunion. More to come as the details unwind. Again, please check the list below and help us to find your classmates. The more the merrier!!
Your friends on the Reunion Committee
