Welcome to the Justin F. Kimball High School Class of 1966 35th Reunion web site

News and Events

45th Reunion Was a Success

The 45th Reunion of the Class of 1966 was a grand success in every way. Both venues were good, and classmates had plenty of opportunity to mingle and socialize with each other throughout both nights, though things did get quieter and more subdued during the most important part of each night when the meals were served. Our crowd was somewhat smaller this time around, as it will probably continue to be in future years, but we saw some new faces that had not been at previous reunions, and that made it even more special. Now, it is time to start thinking about number 50, because if we wait too long, then we may not remember that we need to plan it.

Planning is now under way for the 50th Reunion in 2016, so if you want to get involved in making this event happen, then please contact Bob McComas at bobmccomas@msn.com (469-387-0877), or Pam Hare Bazet at pambazet@yahoo.com (817-329-8280.)

Kimball Travel Club Announced

The Class of 1966 now has a travel club offering special rates on various air, land and ocean cruise trips. The Kimball Travel Club allows classmates to travel together to some exciting destinations as part of a class event.
