CHS 60s Annual Gathering

“Forming, renewing, building and maintaining friendships (in Changing Times)”


We could not meet in 2020 and 2021 but are moving forward with hopeful hearts toward events in 2022!  We want to see you ALL this year!

As we all know, prices for everything have increased significantly since our last event in 2019 but our venues (Corvallis Parks and Recreation, The Corvallis Club and New Morning Bakery) have graciously held to their original quotes for the 2020 event (which was not held) and some generous anonymous classmate donors have come forward so we are able to offer this year’s events at or below what we could in 2019.  A BIG thank you to everyone!

Our 3rd Annual ALL 60s CHS Multi-Class Gathering with the classes of ‘60 -‘69 and those who identify with members of those classes is currently scheduled for August 26-28, 2022.  The two main events will primarily be held outside due to current incident rate increases in COVID-19 but do stay tuned in by checking your class website or Facebook page for updates.

Also check this website:  in the Home Page Announcements section. You do not need to log in to this website to see the All 60’s information.

There are several Facebook Pages where updates will be posted.  

The primary page is “Corvallis High School ‘60’s Annual Gathering” hosted by Bob Hansen. Please visit (and “Like” it!) to let your friends find it. 

Nancy Butler Neary also posts on related Facebook pages so if you are a member, you can check there, too: "Corvallis HS 1967 and Friends" and "CHS Ladies of the 60's".

Please, please help us get the word out by sharing with all your Spartan friends who are not on Facebook or the class websites.

Also, please update your contact information with your class website managers so you stay informed about this event! 

Also please check out the marquee of the Whiteside Theatre from August 7-13th!  The All 60’s Annual Reunion will be featured with a link to the website!

We hope to have PSAs on the radio and in the Gazette Times/Albany Democrat Herald newspaper.

Here is a link to the Visit Corvallis website:

This website provides lists of places to stay, dine and visit during your stay.  It is a great resource for Corvallis and the area in COVID-19 times.

Wearing Vintage Spartan or other 60s clothing is always a plus.  Most of the action will be outside, so dress for the weather of the day and bring a sweater or light jacket “just in case”.

This is a busy park in the summertime with a lot of river float traffic!  There is ADA parking right by the shelter but if you come later and cannot find a parking spot close enough for you to walk, please call 541-760-1073 and we will make every effort to help you get from where you are to the Rotary Shelter and back.


Please Register by August 10

We would be grateful to hear from you by or before August 10 if at all possible.  We need to provide final numbers to the Whiteside Theatre, Corvallis Club and New Morning by August 20.  We anticipate that some may not know if they will attend until the last minute, especially this year.  When you decide, even if it is just days before the gathering, please register.   But don’t let the lack of pre-registration keep you or anyone else you know from coming even if it is the “day of.”  We really want to see you!
