Summer of 2017 Class Reunion Update

(If you have information, please pass it along to us so we can share!!!)

Hard to believe we've already flown past the 4th of July! The Class of 1987 and Class of 1967 held their reunions this past weekend and, based on the photos I've seen circulating, it looked like fun was had by all! If you are a member of either of those classes, please send us a little blurb about how the reunion went and a group photo so we can share next month! Still coming up: Class of 1997 this month and Class of 1977 and 2007 during Homecoming!

Class of 1977:
I've heard they are planning for Homecoming weekend, but this isn't confirmed yet.

Class of 1997:
Weekend of July 21st-22nd, contact person is Jill Kjorstad. Her email address is jillkjorstad@gmail.com.

Class of 2007:
​Weekend of Oct. 6th and 7th—Homecoming!
​Shannon Bachmeier is the contact person! Class float in the Homecoming Parade, and tailgating at the football field to follow on Friday!

We've also received word that the Class of 1968 is ahead of the game and planning their reunion for July 27th and 28th of 2018! Impressive! Their contact people are Linda Corner, Candy Tesoro, and Pat Hagen!
