Regretting those six tattoos?

Any CHS class of '63 kids out there?

If so, we've got a project for you: Hold a reunion, will you?
We just heard from Mary-Jean Fellows, who saw our story on the class of '67 reunion. "I have never heard of a reunion for the class of 1963!" she wrote. "Maybe they haven't ever had one. Maybe you could find out for me?"
For you, Mary-Jean, there's no question we wouldn't ask.
So whaddya say, readers? Shall we hunt down the class of 1963 and throw them a reunion, or do you want to have Mary-Jean's unhappy face on your conscience??
