Class of 1974 Quips and Cranks: 50th Anniversary Edition Quips & Cranks

As part of our celebration, the Reunion committee is creating a Class of 1974 Quips and Cranks: 50th Anniversary Edition. Classmates received an email from Meno Publishing with the relevant links and instructions for this project. All surveys must be submitted online by March 1 to be included in the Quips and Cranks project. The booklet will be published online before June and classmates will receive a hard copy when we gather in person to celebrate. If you need assistance with your survey and/or have questions, please contact the Reunion Staff at

To get an idea of what we have to look forward to, take time to enjoy the online 50th Anniversary Quips and Cranks Yearbooks for the last three classes:
