TAFT Classmates,

Please see below, which is a repeat of our All-Classmate E-mails sent on March 9th and April 2nd.   If you have already sent or called in an RSVP to Anne, you do not need to do so again.  Hope to see you next Friday!

As we have done the past several years, we again plan to have an enjoyable June 1959 Class Spring Luncheon.   It will be next week on Friday, April 22nd this year. As before, we will meet at the Hilton Garden Inn on River Road in Des Plaines, where we have held our Annual Class Reunions and Class Luncheons for a number of years. As you will recall, at our Christmas/New Year/Holiday Luncheon, current TAFT Principal, Mark Grishaber, joined us and shared his thoughts about TAFT today and his future plans. It was a very interesting, informative, and special time!  Principal Grishaber has again agreed to join us on April 22.   We also are inviting the previous Principal, whom we met at our 50th, Dr. Art Tarvardian.

We will meet at 11:30 in a private area, and all attendees will be able to order off the menu. As always, in addition to meeting Principal Grishaber again and, hopefully, Dr. Tarvardian, we plan to have our usual great time catching up with one another, reminiscing, enjoying some donated door prizes, singing our older version of the “TAFT Fight Song”, and taking a group photo. Please plan to join us, even if you recently have not been able to attend any of our previous Annual Reunions or Luncheons. And, feel free to invite other TAFT graduates, relatives, or friends. All are welcome!

Please call or e-mail Classmate Anne Fear-McManus at 630-584-9194 or annemcmanus@me.com if you and guests are able to join us (we hope you can!), so we can let the Hotel know how many to expect and reserve a dining area which will be able to accommodate us. Thanks!  However, even if you determine that you can come at the “last minute” please do so and join us.  We will always make room for you!

Also, please remember to mark Saturday, 1 October 2016, on your calendar.  On that evening this fall we will be holding our 57th Annual Reunion, again at the Hilton Garden Inn in Des Plaines.  Hope you and your guests will be able to join us!   We will send out details in early summer.

Finally, we ask you to consider donating to “The TAFT June 1959 Reunion” to help us maintain our extensive and information packed website (www.taftreunion1959.com) and support our Annual Class Reunions and Luncheons.  We would welcome any amount.  If you are able to provide some support, please send a check to our Class Reunion Treasurer:
