Planning Information for 2023 52nd Reunion


Save the Date:  September 26-28, 2023


Greeting Classmates, Friends, and Family members,

We are so thankful for the kindness many of you express towards each other. We see warmth, joy, and exuberance when we get together informally, or even communicate in some fashion.   Connection is vitally important to everyone, and not just family, especially as we age gracefully.  While you might not think it is appreciated, it really is.  Even as years pass between us, we are increasingly significant to each other.

This is the year of our individual Platinum celebrations. If we can be a part of yours, please reach out and let us know.

In the beginning of this landmark year a committee convened to plan an event in commemoration of our 52ndyear since graduating from CHS.  The last two years we partied in Maryland. We felt this year a destination in nearby Virginia would be a good option for activities. We have selected a site also convenient for out-of-town travelers.


Please save the Date: September 26-28, 2023. Destination: Historic Leesburg, Virginia.  The land of rolling hills, parks, vineyards and horse farms.
