Class of '57 60th Anniversary Reunion

March 21, 2017
College Station, TX


Howdy, Class of 1957!

In conjunction with the 2017 Sul Ross Group Reunion, your ’57 Class Agents thought a 60th reunion would be in order.  Since many of you are planning to attend the SRG function, let’s get together for a reception to celebrate 60 years since graduation! (On Tuesday, the night before SRG)

We are planning a reception to be held in Letterman’s Lounge at the new Kyle Field.  We will have some good food, beverages and an opportunity to catch up with classmates and swap “Good Bull” tales! 

The Association of Former Students has helped us plan and select a great Commemorative Reunion Shirt (which will be the uniform for the evening), a great menu of finger food and will coordinate all registration processes. 
Register early, purchase your shirt and make this the best time ever for us  “Old Army Ags” !

Your Class Agents,
Dennis Goehring, James Goode, & Jim Tinsley
