60th Reunion a Success!
The Reunion Planning Committee for the PHS Class of 56 – 60th Reunion was formed in the fall of 2015. A survey form was prepared by the committee and sent to all known addresses. After the Committee received responses to the survey, they selected dates, location and venues (See Class of 56 News for details )
