The Class of 1960
The Class of 1960 held its 50th anniversary reunion (its 6th reunion) celebration over the weekend of June 24 – 26, 2010. Only seven of the known surviving members of the Class were unable to attend, all but one , due to health concerns. The 16 that did attend were treated to a great weekend of fellowship, starting with a barbecue at Bill and Brenda Marantz’s cottage at Winnipeg Beach on a warm and sunny Friday afternoon and evening. The next day the traditional banquet was held at the Manitoba Club at which time Len Weinberg presented the tribute to our thirteen deceased class members. He especially rememberd the lives of Manly Goldberg and Telly Mercury who had passed away shortly before the Reunion. After dinner, all members gave a short update of their recent doings and reminisced about the good old days under Pete Tallin and Colonel Streight.

All Class members received a pair of commemorative crystal wine glasses and were sent a copy of the official reunion photo taken at the Manitoba Club.
