55th Reunion for the Classes of 1965 & 1966

Welcome Back!

The classes of 1965 and 1966 will celebrate our 55th reunion jointly October 29-31, so mark your calendars and make plans to be back for this milestone event.   This year’s Homecoming and Reunion Weekend promises to be bigger and better than ever.

Event Overview

Beginning Friday afternoon 1t 3:00 p.m. join us at the Golden Deacs Event where we will hear from Wake Forest’s 14th President, Dr. Susan Wente and Mark Peteresen, V. P. of University Advancement.  At the conclusion of the program, we will move to an outdoor reception on Mag Quad prior to  Party So Dear! Friday evening will be our 55th Reunion celebration at Old Town Club as we get to see all of our friends in both the class of 1965 and 1966.  The event begins at 6:30 p.m. in the pool pavilion (weather permitting) where will enjoy good food, good company and a glass of the finest.  There will be no formal program so everyone can move around and visit with one another and eat when they are hungry.  If your plans do not include going to campus for the afternoon festivities, please know, we will have your name tag and event ticket at Old Town.

On Saturday, we will enjoy the Festival on the Quad, the Alumni Tailgate, and the WFU/Duke football game with the 16th ranked Deacons!  Game tickets will be available for purchase through Homecoming registration and classes will be grouped together within each ticket option.  On Sunday, the Service of Remembrance will be at 10:30 in Wait Chapel followed by a Homecoming Worship Service led by Dr. Mike Queen (’68) at 11 :00 a.m.

Next Steps

Contact your friends and make plans to be here to see your friends.  Keep checking this website for updated information as the weekend gets closer and plans for a safe and fun weekend are finalized.  Registration for weekend events, including football tickets, will be available in late September.

We look forward to seeing each of you for this memorable weekend!

Go Deacs!
