Maggi Miller's Mother

Our classmate Maggi Miller lost her Mother Margaret (Peggy) in August.  Mrs. Miller was involved in many volunteer activities in Irving including leading both Boy and Girl Scout troops, working at the Irving Hospital, and working with the First Presbyterian Church. Some classmates might remember her as a winner of the Irving newspaper's "Good Neighbor" award.

Click here for Mrs. Miller's obituary.  Please keep Maggi and the Millers' family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.

50th Reunion Gold Sponsorships

As many of you know, for several reunions, we've been able to keep our admission fees to $69 per attendee although that has been difficult due to rising expenses.  We would like to do something special for our 50th Reunion to get the admissions fee lower for ALL attendees.

We are offering 50th Reunion Sponsorships at $500 each!  With your sponsorship you get two (2) admissions and your name added to the Gold Sponsor Honor Roll to be displayed at the 50th Reunion!  Sponsorship funds will be applied to the costs of our reunion before determining the admission fees for everyone.

Thanks to our Sponsors for lowering our individual ticket price to $50 and our couple's ticket price to $69!  It is not too late to become a sponsor!  Additional donations will be used to upgrade our Saturday night Celebration Experience!

To become a Gold Sponsor, click on the Sponsorships link to the left.

Thanks for your involvement to make our 50th Reunion the best ever!

Class Ring Found

I received the following email from Judith who found an IHS Class of 69 ring:

Hello I wanted to see who I could get in contact about a lost class ring I found. I've had it for about 10 years. I was going through my saved memories and found it again! I really want to get it back to the person that lost it. I found it in Harlingen Texas at a movie theater I worked at. I hope the person who lost it is still in contact with you all.  The initials JDP are engraved on the inside.

If you lost a class ring in Harlingen, Texas, contact Judith at email address below.  Also, please let our website know too.

Retiring? Moving?

Hey classmates!

Many of us have used our work email addresses as the primary method for your classmates to contact you when sharing Class of '69 activities.  With many of us retiring and/or moving, we would like to suggest that you update your contact information if it isn't current.  

We'd hate to lose contact with you!
