East High’s Class of 1960 will celebrate its 60th reunion on Friday, September 30 – Sunday, October 2 in Wichita.
After 62 years, we are gathering in Wichita to reconnect in person. We hope that many of you will be able to join us, although we do understand that travel is not in the cards for many others. Virtual participation via Zoom will be part of the two evening events, providing an opportunity for those of you who are far away to talk with classmates at the reunion.
Registration and reservation information is being mailed in the next few days and should appear in your mailbox next week. Responses by September 1 will help with preparations.
We will be happy to see any and all who show up for any of the following activities. Given our shared background and long lives, everyone who attends will find rewarding connections. Besides, we are planning to have a very good time!
