Class of 1961 Reunions
Unofficial, put together by members of the Class of 1961.
James Monroe High School
Here we go again! The postponed 60th.
Keynote email from Pat Berry McCord for the Reunion Committee:
Our connections from our days in Fredericksburg during the"50"s and "60"s extend beyond high school. We have more in common than just what we did in school from our formative years in Fredericksburg, and we have much to share about our lives since. Our generation has been called the "silent" generation, preceding the baby boomers. We have seen so much change that we can share with each other. You are important to us. Please let us hear from you.
Even if you can't come to Fredericksburg, we want to hear from you with information that we could share at our gatherings. We hope you will be with us in person or in spirit with remarks you can share.
Pat Berry McCord
