36th Reunion Events

Schedule of Events for 36th Reunion Class of 1985

This will be fluid based on capacity restrictions and any Pandemic guidelines that we or our vendors must adhere to.  My hope is that you and your family will make this a destination vacation for most of the week with events now starting on Thursday thru Sunday October 28-30, 2021.  We had approximately 270 classmates attend our 30th Reunion and my hope and prayer is that we top 300 Classmates for the 36th.  We were such a presence in 2015 the we made the front page of the Charleston Post & Courier.
