The Reunion Committee was especially pleased with the 63-Year Reunion and we believe that this opinion was shared by most if not all of the attendees. Many of our classmates expressed to the Committee how much they enjoyed the ambiance and their appreciation for the opportunity to again mix and mingle with old friends.
The facility was perfect. The space was adequate for mingling. The service and the food was outstanding. While we hate to have such pricey menus we felt that we were served meals commensurate with the prices.
Our turnout was down somewhat this time mostly due to health issues. We had 103 classmates and guests planning to attend up until the last minute. However, due to health issues and other last-minute conflicts ten paid attendees failed to show. However, we did have four classmates who had never attended a class reunion join us for the 63-Year gathering: Bill Baumgartner, Betty Freeman Ronquillo, Jack Hawker and Bill Meister.
We organized a photo op for attendees from each grade school that fed Lincoln. Be sure and check out the grade school groupings in the reunion pictures pages of this website.
We hope to be able to organize a 65-Year Reunion at the same venue, the Lynnwood Convention Center. If you have any suggestions for the next reunion or would like to help us pull together another reunion, please contact Bill Koons at firstname.lastname@example.org or Darrell Bangerter at email@example.com.
If you, or your companion, are suffering due to health issues, please know that we care and that we wish you a rapid recovery.
Darrell Bangerter for the Reunion Committee
