2018: The Year Of Two Reunions
The SAHS Class of 1968 will hold its 50th Class Reunion the weekend of September 14-16, 2018. A newly formed alumni committee has just selected July 27-29, 2018 as the weekend for a SAHS All-Class Reunion. This committee has met only once, so only a date has been selected. No plans have yet been made. As plans unfold in the coming months, we will keep you informed in case you are interested in attending this reunion as well. Our 1968 reunion committee is not working on the all-class reunion, but we will be keeping in touch with that committee and will bring you the information as we receive it. We just wanted to clarify the difference between these two reunions so that our 1968 classmates will not get these two events confused.
