5/19/2009: From Sherry O'Neal
I just realized that we need to start planning another reunion NEXT YEAR! I think it will be easier to communicate through Facebook group than how we have in the past to make sure everyone is included. E-mail and addresses (and names!) change a lot, but if we are members of the group, we can find each other when the time comes. 
So, please join the 1981 Facebook Group!!
