"This is the supreme class reunion program out there. Those other sites charge you for almost everything you use or research. My advice to all the classes out there - give yourself a break including your wallet, and do the organization yourself with the fine help of this awesome program. Classreport is the Epic Smart way to manage your class activities and reunions. We consider this program as a legacy to our classes." 5/22/2014
