| 1975-76 | Our memories/2001 Info | Reunion schedule | Home | GFS Web Site |

Below is the schedule for Reunion Weekend. No one is obligated to attend all the events. Those of particular interest to our class are highlighted in bold. Harry Gratwick is retiring as baseball coach and there will be an alumni vs. varsity baseball game in recognition of his 30 seasons as coach and more than 315 wins. The school is sending information to team members from our class. There has been interest from members of the class for an Ultimate Frisbee game. Fill out the forms below so we know who is interested in participating in what activities and so we can have RSVPs for the major events. You can always decide to play in the frisbee game at the last minute, but this will give us a preliminary count. Please RSVP by May 1.
