We especially welcome the Class of 1967 who will be inducted into the Golden Club to mark their 50th reunion. Other classes ending in ’2, ’7 and the Class of 2016 will also be honored.

Gee Dinner...Family Style

Some of you remember sitting around tables in dresses and politely asking your neighbor to “pass the potatoes” while being served by teen “waiters.” If you don’t remember that, come see it to believe it! Experience Converse dining as it was in the late 19th- to mid-20th century. Dress like Miss Gee would approve!
