GO TO THE BLOG TITLED, "HOW WAS THE REUNION FOR YOU?", TO SHARE YOUR IMPRESSIONS, FEEDBACK, ETC. FROM THE REUNION.

We have others that need to be thanked specifically for their contributions towards making this a special reunion:
  • A special note of thanks that may have been overlooked in the fun and excitement of the reunion.  The free keg of Fat Tire beer was provided by committee member, Dr. Steve Weiss. Thank you, Steve, from the committee and the entire class!
  •  
  • Pieter Graaskamp provided a free ad in the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram to help us in our search for classmates.
  •  
  • Jon Norby graciously provided discounted golf at Hickory Hills Golf Course over the reunion weekend.
  •  
  • Tom Klemmer provided passes to the Downtown Budget Cinema as door prizes.
  •  
  • Pam O’Reilly organized the lunch on Saturday at Happy Hollow.
  •  
  • Lisa Aspenson provided the Gift Certificate to Mona Lisa’s Restaurant for the Early Abe Registration Drawing winner.

  • Special thanks goes to the Lismore Hotel and their staff as well as the Oxbow, Clarion, and Hampton Inn hotels who, along with the Lismore, provided discounted lodging for reunion attendees.
The website will live on for the next few months as a resource for the class.  Please continue to share your pictures, ideas, and feedback.  The online Ticket Purchase feature is still functional for any late arrivals who would still like to pay (nudge, nudge) and the Donation feature is still functional for anyone that would like to help us get a head start on 2022 (hint, hint) by purchasing a T-Shirt and/or Class Directory. 

The website content will eventually be moved to another platform such as Facebook, to preserve the memories, continue to be a resource, and to be a means for us to stay connected.  That’s a little way’s off and we’ll keep you posted.

Keep coming to the site in the meantime, watch for updates regarding the directory and T-Shirts, and most importantly, Thank You once again!
