WANTED: Your Email Address

The Crawford Class of '80 needs email addresses so we can officially announce our class reunion to as many alum as possible, and for occasional updates. Please email with your name and return email address and the names and email addresses of as many class of '80 alum as you can think of. We are putting in a major push during the 2nd half of July to get as many of these addresses as we can.

These email addresses will not be posted on any web site, and will only be available to members of the reunion committee. All emails from the reunion committee will be sent as a blind carbon copy, so your address will not appear with the emails that other people receive. We will try and limit emails to no more than one a week.

Thanks for you help!
