If you haven’t been to Muskegon in sometime, there are now new places to stay, eat and places to visit.  Just a few —the paper mill is gone and plans for Windward Pointe developmment are in progress. Downtown Muskegon has new construction. (There are condos where we shopped on Saturdays), and as everywhere in Michigan, there are also brew pubs!  Lake Michigan is still great entertainment, but consider visiting the South Pier-head Light. (How many can say they have been in a working lighthouse?) Activities  to consider: Michigan Adventure, the Port City Princess, miles and miles of biking and hiking trails.The USS Silversides Submarine Museum, USS LST-393, the Lakeshore Museum, as well as Muskegon Museum of Art (where Dave Rogers had a one man show while in HS). Many places can be seen while riding the Beach-Towne Trolley. These and other attractions are listed on www.visitmuskegon.org

The reunion activities that we have scheduled will be held on: July 19, 20, and 21, 2018. 

If you will need lodging, please make your reservations NOW.  Our reunion coincides with Bike Time. Lodging will be totally booked that weekend.
