The Citadel Class of 1960

Reunion 55 – The Citadel Class of 1960


The 55th Reunion of the Class of 1960 will be held during Homecoming Weekend, November 6th and 7th, 2015.  The football game, Saturday, November 7th at 2:00 PM, will pit our Bulldog's against our military school rivals, the Keydets of VMI, with the Silver Shako at stake.

The following is the format that will be used for our Class Reunion, and this format is based on the many Classmate responses to our e-mails, telephone calls, etc., relative to a format. Please note that this is the only regular mail document you will receive, all additional information will be via e-mail, postings on the Class web site, or you may call me at 843-216-1121.

The below format has been designed to allow maximum time to enjoy Charleston, The Citadel and your Classmates. As a note, we have not designated a "Class of 60" hotel. With the cost of hotel rooms (special rates) near The Citadel in the high $200's to the mid-$300's per night, we felt Classmates would rather make their own arrangements than be obligated to a particular hotel.

Includes the Social Hour, the Dinner and the Tent Luncheon: $65 per person

Alcoholic beverages for the social and for dinner are not included; soft drinks, tea and coffee are included.  The Carolina Yacht Club is a private club and cash purchases are not permitted. In our case, we are sponsored by our Classmate Myron Harrington, and his account will be billed for alcoholic drinks, including wine, beer.  Taking into consideration many Classmate's/guests may drink little or not at all, and a cash bar is not possible, we have decided on the following:

  • Each alcoholic beverage costs $8.00 per drink.
  • Please include a designated amount over the above $65 per person, estimating your beverage desires, i.e.,
    4 drinks per person adds $32 to the $65. The bar will be open for the social and through dinner.
  • As a note, all alcoholic beverages, liquor, wine, beer are gratis at the tent.
