Over 300 attended last year. Tell your Manual friends. RSVP names & class years of all who plan to attend. Nothing but fun! If you would like me to send invitations to your classmates not on my list, send me their names and e-mail addresses at gdurnil@aol.com


We will once again have available the famous big, glass, Hager, fishbowl in which to collect contributions to the 2017 Ivian Yearbook Project fund. Chuck Williams, the alum who concieved of the idea to bring yearbooks back to Manual will man the fishbowl.Bring your checkbooks or make your check payable to the Manual Alumni Assn and mark "yearbook" on the memo line. We have great alums - 25,000 of them but I only have 4,500 e-mail addresses. I would appreciate having the addresses of your Manual friends if you would like to send them to gdurnil@aol.com. We need to increase the luncheon crowd and spread out the yearbook contributions.

Manual principal Hanno Becker talks to Kids of the 1960's

Who are the Manual Kids of the 1950's & 1960's? We are a group of Emmerich Manual High School alumni from the 1950's & 1960's interested in renewing old friendships, sharing memories, and assisting Manual High School from time to time. Each year 300 or so Manual alums have a Christmas luncheon at Jonathan Byrd's Cafeteria in Greenwood, IN. Everyone who attended Manual H.S. at anytime in the 1950's and 1960's and their guests, are welcome! Previously this luncheon was for anyone who attended Manual in the 1950's (Classes of 1950 through 1963). By popular demand a couple years ago, we included all classes from the 1960's ... and are glad we did. What a great group of Manualites.
