The class of 66 is turning 70, and, as you might have heard,
plans are underway for a weekend of celebrating. Here's what is
happening on Friday, October 12 and Saturday, October 13. Please
bear in mind that we are early on in the planning phase, and
certain details may change. However, the dates are firm.
Friday brings an opportunity to attend a Middies football game.
How many years has it been since you've done that? We are
currently determining a venue, but will reserve one convenient
to the stadium, where we may gather before and after the game,
as well as during, for those choosing to skip the game. Look for
more details as planning continues.
We plan to spend some time downtown on Saturday morning at a
reserved location, enjoying coffee and heavenly doughnuts from
Milton's, sufficient to energize us for a self-guided walking
tour of downtown. In addition to a map it's quite possible that
you will receive a "passport" which will be punched at various
locations on the tour. A completed passport just might yield a
prize. There are dining spots and craft beers along the way, and
you might choose to end your walk with lunch and a relaxing
glass of wine.
If you enjoy golf, there is an option to play 18 holes at
Wildwood for $38, which includes a cart.
On Saturday evening we'll cap off our weekend with a celebration
at Wildwood. Again, rather than dinner we'll be enjoying a
variety of snacks and light fare. The will be adult beverages.
Classmate John Medley's band, Bill's Diner, will play our
Just added to our weekend activity menu is the possibility of a
tour of the brand spanking new Middletown High School, which
should be completed by then. Stay tuned for details on that
item, and others, as planning continues.
One more thing; we would LOVE to hear from you. Do you plan to
attend? Please take a minute to email Tom, whose email address
is on this website, or Kay, whose address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
It would help our planning process immensely. Costs have not yet

From February meeting:
Class of 1966 70th Birthday
I thoroughly enjoyed the last meeting. In attendance were Sandie
Jim Stiver, John
me. We missed those of you who were unable to be there, but
found it easier to hear and be heard; as a result the ideas were
flowing. We discussed our gathering place for Friday night,
which we've narrowed down but haven't nailed down, and confirmed
our intention to be at Wildwood for Saturday evening. Saturday
brunch plans and fun downtown activities are in the works, and
we're very excited about them. We'll have more to report after
our next get together, which will be held at Wildwood on
Saturday, March 10 at noon. Come join us. You'll enjoy all the
talk about doughnuts
Planning is underway for the class of '66 70th birthday
celebration. Mark your 2018 calendars for October 12 and 13.
Friday plans include an early casual dinner followed by a
Middies home football game. After the game we'll return to our
party spot. Some may prefer to skip the game and keep the
Saturday will begin with a continental breakfast, and end with a
casual dinner buffet, music and a cash bar. We plan to provide
suggestions for local activities and destinations as October
draws nearer. Our next planning session is scheduled for noon on
Get together Dates

Thank you for a fantastic Reunion
Kay Brumagen Wilmont
There are many people who have worked long and hard
getting this reunion put together. It has been a year long
process. No one worked harder or did more for the reunion
I have been working on this website since the
before the last reunion. Because of that, at some
point last year, I realized that no one had stepped forward
start the planning. of our 50th Reunion. So I
posted a plea for someone to get the planning started.
Fortunately, one person stepped forward and
and said that she would get the planning started if no one else
wanted to. (Famous last words)
Kay Brumagen Wilmont deserves our gratitude for the work
she has done. She has the organizational skills and work
ethic to get things accomplished.
Meetings were well organized, everyone had the opportunity to
share their ideas, and I think we all enjoyed the process.
I have enjoyed working with Kay, Helen, and the entire
committee. We hope everyone had a great time
and partyed like it was 1966.
