50th Year reunion for Class of '63

Saturday 23rd of November saw a class reunion take place at Wits Club.
This was the electrical engineering class that graduated at Wits in 1963. This was the 50th anniversary of their graduation. The event was well attended with more than half of the original class attending, some traveling from overseas. It was quite an august gathering, with more than 1000 years of engineering experience among them
