UPDATE - May 15, 2019 - Planning for the 50-year reunion in 2020 is underway. Phase one is to gather as much contact information, especially email addresses, for our classmates as possible. Facebook pages are helpful, too. The "Classmate & Contact Info" page (see left menu) has a list of classmates with an icon showing if we have an email for that classmate. Please send any missing email addresses to Sherrie (Hansen) Kunkel & Deb (Johnson) Smith.

Cheri (Shew) Drake is heading a committee to explore locations and dates for the reunion. A decision is expected by mid-June.

The "Departed Classmates" page has many new entries added since 2010. We are up to 58 classmates who have passed away.
