Carthage Central Class of 1967


The planning for the Carthage Central Class of 1967 reunion continues Again it was determined that the week-end of July 21, 22, and 23, 2017 would be the dates for reunion activities. The planning group was determined to keep the planning simple and to leave time for smaller groups to devise other activities for more personal interaction or something more appealing to them. Penny Moore Labarge has contacted and confirmed a Get-Together at Jose O’Connors in West Carthage on Friday Evening. She has also reserved Carlowden Country Club for dinner and other entertainment on Saturday night. Saturday day is open for “other activities” which we are leaving for others to plan. We will assist in listing activities that may get planned so that others may join in on them. Picnics, Sailing, Golf, Luncheons, or any others that this creative group can come up with.

Cyanne Meister Storms has done an outstanding job in putting together a mailing/contact list for sending information and invitations for the reunion activities. We are still requesting that anyone who has an updated physical or email address of a 1967 CCS Graduate to contact the numbers or email addresses below.

Other points of contact are Dick Stevens, Randy Hoffman, Ron Tabolt, Duwayne Maurer, Roland Houghton, Rick Burdick, Sandy Benware Marland, Jimmy Smith, and Linda Smith. They will forward any information to Cyanne and have agreed to help with the reunion.
We are looking for updated contact information and indications for attendance by the end of February. It would be great if any family member, friend, or acquaintance of a 1967 CCS class member, who sees this, would pass it on to them.

Lastly if anyone is interested in planning a memorial service for those classmates who have passed, please contact us and we can discuss the details.
