Pre-Reunion  Order your class T-shirt!
We thought it would be fun to show some class of '79 pride by wearing our own special class T-shirt at Aquinas Fest.  We encourage all classmates to  get one even if you can't make the reunion!   In fact, order more for your family and friends!    Only $10!  (and no shipping charge if you're picking up at the reunion)

Place your order through our class website by August 25th, and your shirt will be waiting for you at Earl's on Friday September 12th.  We may order a few extras just in case, but to make sure you definitely have a shirt in the size you want and that we are able to get the best group rate on the order,  PLEASE order by August 25th!  

If you've already registered for the reunion, no problem.  Just add your T-shirt(s) to your order and proceed to checkout.
