The Class of 1967 will return to the Knox College campus to celebrate their 50th Reunion at Homecoming 2017, October 27-29. Co-chairs Carol Romsa Parke and Nancy Rabenstein Pielemeier and the 50th Reunion Committee are busy planning an extraordinary weekend full of special events.

In addition, the Reunion Committee is also committed to encouraging classmates to consider a meaningful 50th Reunion contribution. The Committee set a goal to reach at least 50 percent giving participation. As a special incentive to reach this goal, an anonymous donor has pledged to give $500,000 if the class reaches 50 percent giving!  Only 16 more new donors are needed to reach this goal. If you have not given to Knox since before June 30, 2015, your gift can make a real impact for Knox. Please help us earn this generous gift!

The Committee also plans to create a 50th Reunion booklet, which will include classmate bios, then and now photos, and candid photos from your Knox days. Please take a few minutes to think about your life since your College days, your favorite Knox memories, and what valuable lessons you learned at Knox, and then fill out the form below. Your participation is vital!

Fill out 50th Reunion Questionnaire.

It is also important to make your hotel reservations early. Hotel rooms disappear quickly at Homecoming, so don't wait.
