The Class of 1967 will return to the Knox College campus to celebrate their 50th Reunion at Homecoming 2017, October 27-29.  The 50th Reunion Committee is already starting to make plans for this milestone event. Carol Romsa Parke and Nancy Rabenstein Pielemeier have agreed to head up the committee as Reunion co-chairs.

In addition to planning an extraordinary weekend full of special events, the Reunion Committee is also committed to encouraging classmates to consider a meaningful 50th Reunion contribution. What better time to reflect upon the role that Knox College has had in your life than during your 50th Reunion? A significant gift can express your gratitude for your Knox experience during this milestone year and it can enrich the Knox experience for future generations of students. All gifts to Knox from the Class of 1967 will count toward the 50th Reunion Class gift. The counting period for gifts runs through June 30, 2018. The 50th Reunion Committee has also set a goal to meet or exceed 50 percent particpation, so please make your gift today.
