Class of 1968,
Our 50th Wake Forest Reunion will be November 2 & 3, 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.
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. If you are interested in seeing Wake Downtown please be sure to sign up for the Golden Deacs bus tour which will leave from the front of the Benson Center at 1:00 p.m. Space is limited. If you want to see all of campus, but don’t feel up to all the walking, then plan to use the hop on/hop off shuttles which will be running all afternoon. From 4:30 – 7:00 p.m. put your dancing shoes on and come to the big tent on Mag Quad to enjoy Party So Dear!
Friday evening will be our 50th Reunion dinner in the Benson University Center where Dr. Ed Wilson (‘43), provost emeritus will be our guest speaker. On Saturday, we will enjoy the Festival on the Quad, campus tours, the Alumni Tailgate and the WFU/Syracuse 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 have already exceeded our $125,000 class goal but could still use your help to reach the 50% participation goal 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, 2017 and will continue through Homecoming Weekend.
We would love to hear from everyone in the class regardless of whether you are able to come to the reunion or not. Take a minute and share with classmates your life’s journey since graduation. Include whatever you would like to share about family, career, Wake Forest memories, passions and future plans. Please be sure to include your maiden name if applicable when listing your name.
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,
