Here is the latest from Diane as of:

25 Sep 2023



      Click Here for the registration form for the 2024 reunion in Frederick, MD. It needs to be completed by all who plan to attend. The bus for the DC trip holds

50. Therefore, the first 50 who sign up for the trip will be going.  Otherwise, you will go on a waiting list in case someone cancels. Also

you need to pick the meal choice for each person attending.  If you think you might be going, please make a reservation at the

hotel. We only have  30 rooms saved in our block, but once these are used up they will add more rooms if there are rooms left at the hotel.

So reserve early. If you can cancel within 48 hours of your arrival date you will not be charged.

     If you have any questions, give me a call 518-355-2119, or drop me an email.


6 July 2023 - Received this e-mail from Diane Singleman regarding the next Key reunion on May 13 - 17, 2024 in beautiful Frederick, MD.

I am working on the registration form and will send out emails as soon as I have time, but I wanted to let you know the date so that you can make plans to attend. If you have any questions, please call me at 518-355-2119. FYI This is not the same Hampton Inn that we stayed at in 2014. It is located in downtown Frederick, MD.
Hope to see you in May,
