This page will be updated periodically during spring 2019 as additional event details are finalized for Friday, Saturday and Sunday of  Reunion Weekend.  So, please check back periodically.  Currently, (January 2019), most of the key details associated with the Saturday evening Reunion Banquet are set.  We still have some fine tuning to do for a couple of the banquet details that will be updated later; and we're still working on the schedule for Friday evening,  the Saturday morning tour of the school and breakfast on Sunday morning.  In addition to updating this web page, we will post updates on the two class Facebook pages.  (Washington-Lee High School Class of 1968; and Washington-Lee High School Class of 1969) as well as send out periodic Email Blasts.  So, if you move or change your phone number--please make sure to share that information with your Class Contact for the W-L Alumni data base.
