ANNOUNCEMENTS

Our class reunion is fast approaching! Are you thinking about coming? Not too late! We still want you to come! Come and celebrate with all of us that crossed paths for a brief moment in our lives. We have all had lots in our lives since then, joy, sorrow, disappointment, health scares, the list goes on and on. We all thought we had all of the answers, and life has proven otherwise. We've all gone through a lot and surely are much wiser than we were back then. Please come, if you are on the fence, just come, we'd all love to see everyone! I am posting a list of those that have definitely committed. There are still some that are coming that haven't yet sent their rsvp's back! Hope to see you there!

Please check the most recent reunion details on our website. Our reunion is on the weekend of August 25,26, 2023. Our website is being stubborn (or maybe it's user error) and keeps showing our old reunion details. We will be sending out a letter with all of the fun events we have planned in the next several weeks with info on cost and rsvp instructions so check your mailboxes in June. So very sorry for all the confusion! Looking forward to seeing everyone in August!!

Hey Everyone!

Our 50th reunion will be here before you know it so be looking for a mailing in the next couple weeks with all of the details of the weekend! Mark your calendars for the weekend of August 25, 26th. We hope to see lots of our classmates there! Doesn't it seem weird that time has gone by so quickly? Seems we were just roaming the halls of St. Edmond and in our minds you still are that young person with maybe a few more aches and pains!  So make plans to head back to Dodge and celebrate with us!! (An announcement inadvertently was sent out by mistake with the last reunion details so please disregard. Sorry for the confusion!)

Getting excited to see everyone!!!
