Dear Knights and Ladies:

Our 60th reunion is coming up the weekend of September 27-28, 2019 at the Doubletree Hotel.  Remember there will be no organized gathering Friday night.  For those who want to get together they can meet at the bar at 5:30 p.m.  The ladies luncheon will be held at the hotel restaurant, Saturday at 12:00 noon, September 28th .  Cocktails and dinner will be served Saturday, September 28th.  Sunday morning we will be meeting for breakfast with those who are staying at the hotel or who wish to come back.

We have reserved a block of rooms for both Friday and Saturday nights. Rooms are  $105.00 plus tax.  Call the hotel and let them know you are with the Southeast Reunion 59 as soon as possible as we have only held 10 rooms at this rate.  To hold this rate you need to have your reservation made by September 1, 2019.

Many of you have taken the opportunity to visit us online at southeast1959.com.  For those of you who have not had the opportunity to register online, it is fun to share your information with your classmates.  Please send any update information or things that you have done since our last reunion to Judi Young Knapp, 3910 Northridge Road, Norman, OK 73072 or jyknapp41@gmail.com.  She will be making a memory book and current directory.

Please send your reunion registration for $59  made payable to Southeast 1959 Reunion to Ken Coleman, 4062 S.W. Camelot Drive, Lee’s Summit, MO 64082 as soon as possible, so we can get a head count.  Looking forward to seeing old friends and remembering our great days at the Castle.
