All Class Reunion - 2025

Reunion has been postponed to 2025, we are leaving the previous plans here for now as a reference to class organizers.

After much discussion regarding what has and has not worked for past reunions, both All Class and Decades, it was decided that the Alumni Association would host a 'kick off' event for the All Class Reunion but that all following events would be organized by the various decades or classes.  In that light we are looking for people from each decade who would like to organize event(s) for their classmates.

We have chosen the 4th of July weekend of 2020 for the All Class Reunion.

The Alumni Association kick-off event will take place on Friday, July 3rd, 2020 at the Mueller Center and will also serve as a place for alumni to receive a schedule of the events taking place for each decade.

Still Looking for Ideas
Planner: Caitlin Turner  Join our facebook group:
A reunion doesn't have to be a large formal affair.  Here are a few suggestions for a range of formal to informal events.

Reserve a pavilion at one of the parks in town and hold a potluck picnic

Organize a float from your decade or class for the 4th of July Parade

Participate with your classmates in one of the many community events of the 4th of July weekend, like the Firecracker Races or the Street Dance

Organize a meal at one of the town's restaurants

If you are lucky enough to have a local classmate with some land see if they would be willing to host a BBQ

Have a get-together at one of the lakes; fishing, boating, swimming.
