It was nearly 50 years ago when our class was walking the halls of Notre Dame HS sharing laughs and enjoying each other’s company. We have nearly come full circle to our 50th reunion.

2022 is around the corner and we are looking forward to celebrating and reminiscing with a weekend full of activities.  Our reunion weekend will be the Weekend May 20-22, 2022. On Friday night we will have a Stag night at Toad’s Place, on Saturday we are planning a golf outing and on Saturday evening a formal dinner with spouses and /or guests.  The culmination of the weekend’s activities will be our participation in the graduation ceremony for the Class of 2022 and we will be honored with golden diplomas.

We have set up a Facebook page to keep everyone up to date, please visit our page.

Our 50th Reunion Gift from the Class of 1972, a Memorial Scholarship Fund in honor of our deceased classmates is up to $47,700, toward our goal of $72,000.

We look forward to sharing memories with you during our reunion weekend and we are hopeful that you will honor your four years at Notre Dame and our deceased classmates by supporting our class gift. 

Members of our class have been gathering on a Zoom Call on a quarterly basis to share stories while at the same time discussing ways to enhance the reunion weekend.  If you would like to join us at one of these luncheons, please contact any of the reunion committee members and, in our continuing effort to stay connected, please share your email and cell phone number with any of us or on this link.

Yours in Notre Dame,

Letter from the Committee

1972 Class Gift—Goal $72,000
$53,872 from 50 classmates as of 9/16/21

In anticipation of our 50th Reunion, the Committee has established the Class of 1972 Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship is a lasting tribute to our deceased classmates and will provide much-needed scholarship support for today’s Notre Dame students. Our goal is to raise $72,000 by May 2022!  

Gifts of all sizes are welcome. Pledges of $1000 or more may be paid over four years.  We hope that classmates will make multi-year commitments to the fund so that in 2023 students will begin to receive significant support from the Class of 1972 Memorial Scholarship. 

We look forward to seeing you for this milestone event!
