Well it has been awhile, 40 years ago we all said good bye to each other and went our separate ways and lived a lot of life. Some stayed, some served, some chose worked, some chose college, and some left have now left us forever.
It’s time to return and meet people you thought you knew a long time ago and to learn about their families and life adventures. We will share a few beverages too some food and good music too. Let’s celebrate the journey we started so long ago together. Many still have friends made before kindergarten. Those who come back will be building on those friendships for the rest of our lives.
It has been a long time…

But that’s not all. With your early paid registration, we will be able to add more to the reunion engagements with family and friends.
SUNDAY – TBD
We will add additional items as the funding from Tickets purchased becomes available… That is where you become very important to assuring this to be a success.
But we have other things we could do too. Pending arraignments, we will have wine tasting opportunities at area wineries, and Happy hours at various other venues.
