Fall 2020 Coffee & Conversation 

Coffee & Conversation

Things (CV19) should be settled down by Thursday, October 22nd, 2020. Meet up with classmates and friends from the TUHS class of 1961 at PANERA BREAD. Meeting will be called to order around 9:00 AM but come early and stay late.  The no host event is a celebration of the 9th anniversary of our 50th Reunion. You don't need a slide rule/calculator to figure out that's 59 years since we left TUHS.

The PANERA BREAD is located at 1825 E. Guadalupe Rd, Tempe, Arizona.

A big question, will there be a 60th Reunion? If anyone would like to head up an exploration committee, contact the class by using the Message Forum. Resources are available including some seed monies left over from the campaign to support the web site. Other resources include on our web site includes a "Reunion Planner, Event Planner, and Survey Planner" functions included with the webb site.

You can also contact Dan Clark, directly by email

P.S. We usually "pass the hat" for tips for the staff at Panera that puts up with us.
