Reunion Information

Home of The Brainerd Warriors
Updated May 25, 2020
UPDATE - May 25, 2020 - 50-year Reunion POSTPONED due to pandemic.

We are pleased to tell you we have already been able to reserve dates with Madden's for 2021. We will celebrate our reunion July 16-18, 2021.

Both the Friday night and the Saturday night events will take place at Madden's. We will be putting together a new timetable for events but the schedule will include all that we had originally planned for over the weekend.

The explanation for the postponement with additional instructions has been emailed or sent out to all classmates that we have contact information for. You will receive helpful suggestions on hotel reservations (if you are not planning on staying at Madden's) at a later date.

We plan to continue to bring you news and hopefully generate ongoing enthusiasm for the 2021 reunion.

Please review the Missing Classmates (see menu at left) to determine if you possibly have information that would help us reach out to them with our ongoing updates.

Thanks much!

Sherrie Hansen Kunkel, Chair
