LAHS GHT's Reunion 2011
Asheville, NC
September 16 - 18, 2011

This year's reunion promises to be another fun gathering of the Grey-Haired Teenagers.  Lin Harris (class of '61) will be our host and has been working with the Reunion Committee to put together three days of activities that should appeal to all.

So it's now time for you to start planning your trip and book your reservations.  We are fortunate to have found another hotel that has worked with us to meet our needs, making it affordable with all the amenities that we have become accustomed to: low rates (before and after the reunion dates; hospitality room; free breakfast; and permission to bring in our own food and beverages just to mention a few.
