Now that Candi Dufek has joined everyone else on Facebook, of course, there's no need to wait until September. Grads are already getting in touch, even if it's just to extend regrets. "I probably will not be able to attend," Gordon Rizor posts, "once again because of expense, and this year, distance."
Bill Rousseau impishly suggests, "let's just meet at the arb, byo, smokem if you gottem, remember it was the 70's and we're from ann arbor.. ps that's all I remember from the 70's!"
And Vicki Isett adds a reality check for those who still think of one another as teenagers. She won't be at the reunion she writes, because "My first grandbaby is due in September."
Yet as of mid-August, Barbara Eichmuller says, 125 people had paid the $55 registration fee, with another five to ten reservations coming in daily. Why do so many people still want to see folks who, for the most part, they haven't been close to in forty years?
