1965 Football Team 50th Reunion

SAVE THE DATE!

1965 Football Team 50th Reunion
Homecoming Weekend 2015
October 23-25, 2015

A reunion in honor of the 50th anniversary of your undefeated season during Homecoming weekend 2015.

Greetings from San Diego and Cape Cod!

It seems like only yesterday we gathered for our 45th; however, the calendar indicates that was four years ago. In another year, October 2015, God willing, we will gather again, this time to recognize 50 years since our remarkable accomplishment. So, get ready for Fall 2015. We have some ideas, however, as usual; we need your full support. Here’s what needs to be done NOW:

  1. Get Oct. 23-25, 2015 on your calendar. Coaches Dunn and Auxter have indicated they are looking forward to being in attendance. “Tiger” is 94 and the “Aux” is 87…need we say anything else?
  2. Contact at least one teammate, or someone else associated with the team, who you would really like to see and encourage him/them to return. Our goal is to have 100% participation. Our team’s student manager, Hank Knight, attended our 45th and was a reminder of the many people whose commitment of support complemented our determination to win every game. Team 65′ is a story about a determined group of seniors who had the full backing of talented underclassmen teammates, experienced coaches, loyal cheerleaders, family and friends.
  3. Begin to determine how you will contribute to our team goal of creating a significant financial legacy to perpetuate the values we believe Springfield College athletics and the football program provide for young people pursuing a human helping profession. For those of you who may have remained silent on this aspect of our responsibility to those who follow, please give this objective your full consideration.
  4. Complete the enclosed Pre-Response Form and return to the Alumni Relations Office so we may start a list of those who will be returning for this occasion.

Please feel free to direct questions or ideas to Scott. Cape Cod, Massachusetts: 508-563-5336 or Venice, Florida: 941-488-6090, or scraggyneckinn@aol.com.

Best wishes and good health to all.

Sincerely,
Gary Wilcox and Scott Taylor
