Class of 1964 60th Reunion
June 28-30, 2024
REGISTER FOR JUNE 29 AT SAINT JOHN’S PREP

The Class of 1964 is planning an exciting 60th class reunion! Please save the date of June 28-30, 2024 for this wonderful event to reconnect and reminisce. We have planned a Friday night dinner just for the Class of ‘64 in the old Alumni Lounge (Quad 170). There will be a piano available in case anyone would like to play and sing at the same time?! I wonder who that could be? The fee for the dinner is $60 per person and includes dinner, beer, wine and soft drinks. Click here to register for our dinner and all of the great events scheduled for the weekend.

In addition, we have made arrangements to “tour” the old dorms on the 5th floor of the Quad.  We hear that it is still much the same, but we want to verify that in person. Besides the Friday activities for the Class of 64, the “all-school” events are scheduled for Saturday, including lectures, tours of the “new” dorm Saint Michael Hall, group pictures, and a big frolicking dinner at Sexton Commons.  You may know that the Class of ‘74 is celebrating 50 years of women at the Prep School, so that will be a special celebration.

Looking forward to seeing you and your spouse/partner on June 28th. Registration online is at www.sprep.net/events.

Bob Kessler, Tom Moyer, Jim Cox, John Sipe, Phil Ledermann, and Brother Walter Kieffer
