Hiliners61 Communication Team

Our 2010 reunion (50th Year celebration held during our 49th year since graduation) created a "Hiliners 61 Communication Team." This sub-committee continues to provide information and connections for you and all of our classmates. It's our gift to each of you and to ourselves as we enjoy our interactions with classmates as they contribute stories, ideas, news items and words of encouragement. We urge each of you to send us emails and/or place comments on the blog. - Barb (Sheppard) Lang, Diane (Sauer) Hughes, Larry Gauper and Ron Morsch - Email addresses for communication team members are available on the ABOUT THIS BLOG page.
