'Commie' reunion p|anned
1,700 grads sought to mark 2 decades
Calling all former Commie Kids.
Ann Arbor’s Community High School is planning a big end-of-the-school-year celebration to commemorate its 20th anniversary, and all alumni are invited.
Since early this year, the school has been notifying members of its 19 previous graduating classes - nearly 1,700 people spread from Costa Rica to Alaska and England to San Francisco.
They have heard back from grads in 22 states, but they’ve been unable to reach more than 500 former students - often affectionately called Commie Kids.
The reunion begins at 11 a.m. June 6 with a tour of Community’s renovated building at 401 N. Division St. and concludes with this year’s graduation ceremony at the Michigan Theater June 9 - which the Ann Arbor City Council will proclaim Community High Day.
This year, 87 more Commie Kids - the school’s 20th graduating class — will venture into the world.
For information about the reunion, call Jo Anne Julius at 994-2021. Anyone interested in helping with the final plans for the reunion should attend a meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday at Community High’s temporary home, the Stone School building, 2800 Stone School Road.
