Plans are now being made for our REUNION on Indianapolis in 2022.  Preliminary contracts have been signed with a hotel to be our headquarters for the September 6-9, 2022 period with arrival on Tuesday and departure on Friday.

Additional information regarding costs, activities, and other arrangements are still under discussion and planning but you can set your 
calendar date planner to save these dates.  It will be nice to be able to see old friends and make new friends after being shut off for the past two years by the Covid pandemic.  Check back here periodically as additional details are finalized and reported.
