Class of '56 Mini Reunion

April 6-9, 2019
College Station, TX

Printable Registration Form

HOWDY
We hope you and your family are having a happy and healthy 2020. It is an exciting time at Texas A&M! With record enrollment, worldwide recognition of the university's prominence in all phases of academic excellence, research and athletic accomplishments, you should be proud to be an Aggie! To learn more of what is happening at TAMU, we encourage you to attend one or more of the Reunions planned for 2020. 

The Sul Ross Group is having its annual Reunion in College Station, March 5-7. For more information, visit tx.ag/SulRoss20. The Sul Ross Group Reunion is the only Reunion that some Classes hold, featuring excellent speakers from the university, and is a great opportunity to visit with your Classmates and other Classes in the Sul Ross Group. 

The Class of ’56 is having its 11th Class cruise on Royal Caribbean out of Galveston, March 22-29. Twenty-five Classmates and guests are signed up for the cruise. If you are interested contact Bob Sears (rwsearspe@comcast.net), Class Cruise Coordinator, to see if any space is available. 

As several of you have requested, our 64th Class Reunion will be in Bryan-College Station, April 6-9. The Reunion is planned for three days; however, if you can only stay for a day or two, please come! At our age, we do not want to miss any opportunities to visit with our Classmates and families, and to continue friendships many of which began in September 1952, more than 67 years ago! 
 
The Reunion will take place at the Best Western Premier Hotel in Bryan. We will arrive Monday, April 6 and depart the morning of Thursday, April 9. Rooms are available for $85 per night (plus taxes). The hotel does have a 48-hour cancellation policy for these special rates. You can book the hotel online by following the instructions below. The deadline to make reservations is March 16. 

Class dinners will be held on Monday and Tuesday evenings, and we will give you a list of area restaurants to visit for dinner on Wednesday, April 8. Check out will be on Thursday, April 9, at 11 a.m.

We will also have a golf outing at the Golf Club at Texas A&M (the course on campus) Wednesday, April 8, starting at 8:30 a.m. 

Hope to see you in April!
