Classmate fund

We would like every classmate to be able to attend the reunion weekend without regard to financial circumstances.  A special Classmate Fund has been established to anonymously assist classmates who may need help in paying for reunion events.  If you need help, please email Bernie Kerman at or call him at 847-551-9889 or 847-641-7553.  If you would like to contribute to the fund, please indicate so on the registration form.

Reunion T-shirts

A commemorative 1961 South Shore t-shirt is available for sale at $15 each.  If you would like to order one or more, please indicate quantity of each size on the registration form.

Reunion book

Each classmate who registers for the reunion will receive one copy of the reunion book.  If you do not plan to attend the reunion, but would like to order the book for $15, please use the registration form.  You may also order additional copies.
