3)  40th Class Report:  Whether or not you plan to join the 4.0 fun in October, you can really let your presence be felt by submitting an entry for our 40th Anniversary Report. Past Red Books have proven to be a remarkable way to share personal triumphs, trials, and tribulations. Your submission---be it long or short, factual or philosophical---will become an important archival document of the history of the Class of ‘77. The world is a different place from five years ago and even more so since our graduation, but we are still all part of the Class of 1977, and this is a way to show that our Class ties remain steadfast and enduring. Please do share your thoughts and views with all of us. We ask that you complete your submission via the Class Report website, http://harvard77.reuniontechnologies.com. A paper questionnaire will also be mailed to your preferred address in March, if you want to do it the old fashioned way.  The website is secure and password-protected, accessible with your HarvardKeyThe deadline for submissions is April 21st so click here to start your engines!
 
4) Reunion Schedule:   COMING SOON - until then click HERE to check out last year's 40th Reunion of the Class of 1976.

5)  Reunion Housing:  We strongly encourage you to begin making your plans early. For obvious reasons, campus housing will not be available to fall reunions, so we will also be sending out information about area hotels where we've blocked rooms.
 
6)  Class Committee:  We'd love to get as many classmates as possible involved in our reunion planning! Please contact us if you'd like to join our reunion engagement and planning efforts. Here are some urgent needs and ways for you to get involved now:
