Class of 1967,
Our 50th Wake Forest Reunion will be September 15-16, so mark your calendars and make plans to be back for this milestone event. On Friday morning we will become Golden Deacs when we are inducted into the Half-Century Club which will begin two days of not-to-be-missed events. This year’s Homecoming and Reunion Weekend promises to be bigger and better than ever. If you are interested in seeing all the new additions to campus as well as Wake Downtown please be sure to sign up for the Golden Deacs bus tour. From 4:30 – 7:00 put your dancing shoes on and come to the big tent on Mag Quad to enjoy Party So Dear and The Four Tops!
Friday evening will be our 50th Reunion dinner on campus in the Benson University Center where Dr. Ed Wilson (‘43), provost emeritus will be our guest speaker. On Saturday we can enjoy the Festival on the Quad, campus tours, the alumni tailgate and the WFU/Utah State football game. We are encouraging class members to sit in the Touchdown Club for the game, but please note there are a limited number of tickets in this area and it will sell out.
We’re already making great progress toward our $75,000 class goal from at least 50% of the class for reunion-year gifts to The Wake Forest Fund. If you haven’t made your gift yet, please do soon! The campaign started July 1, 2016 and will continue through Homecoming Weekend.
Registration will open later this summer, but in the meantime, contact your friends, make your reservations, and keep checking this website for updated information as the weekend gets closer.
We look forward to seeing each of you for this memorable weekend!
Once a Deacon, always a Deacon,
