The Class of 1983 --  40th Reunion

Friday, August 11 and Saturday, August 12.

We are looking for a venue for Friday night ´┐╝as our main event, with details hopefully locked down by the end of March. See the "VHS1983" Facebook group at for ongoing details.

The main goal is to get as many of our classmates together on one night.

We also would ask everyone who sees this to reach out to any classmates and include them so we can maximize our turnout and info distribution. I know we all have busy lives, but as the years grow on, we would like the opportunity to get us all together and share memories and friendships

There has been some interest in having a social gathering this year and even more interest in having an organized Reunion for our 60th in 2024.  

This year’s “Sociable” will be at 4:00 on Wednesday, June 14th, 2023 at Wellman’s Pub & Rooftop, 527 Market Street, West Des Moines.  It will be a cash bar and you can order appetizers to share (or not) and/or dinner.

During this "Sociable” we can gather ideas for what we would want  a 60th Reunion to look like and decide on a date.
