August 17, 2018 by Linda Birtles Pullen (Register to contact)

Hi, Linda Birtles Pullen here. I am trying to launch a plan for what would be our 50th reunion next year marking 50 yrs. since we walked the halls of Oakton High School. I hope to generate interest as well as enlist a few classmates far & near (Northern Va.)willing to help. I welcome feedback from as many as possible indicating whether-or-not you might consider attending so that it can be determined if such an event should be pursued. Also, if you are on Facebook, you can find on my profile &/or at Oakton High School Friends, a group I started about a year ago. I hope to hear from you soon!
