Class of 1964 Reunion Weekend Registration Details


Class of 1964,

We are very much looking forward to seeing you September 20 & 21 for our 55th Wake Forest Reunion.  The weekend schedule has many great events that you will want to enjoy, but we really want to see you at our Class of 1964 Brunch on Saturday morning September 21 in the Magnolia Room, Reynolda Hall. A Saturday reunion brunch has become a tradition for our class and even though Ted Meredith and David Zacks are unable to be with us this year, we thought it would be a great way to celebrate 55 years.  Come and enjoy reconnecting with friends over mimosas and Bloody Marys back on campus where it all began. We have tentatively set the time for 10 a.m. but may need to adjust once the game time is announced.  We hope you will make plans to be here on Friday to take in all of the fun events mentioned below and enjoy spending time with friends on Friday night for dinner after enjoying the music of The Temptations at Party So Dear.
