RED SWEATER LUNCHEON - December 8, 2016

A cold, snowy, blustery day could not chill the spirits of 43 classmates and spouses as they gathered at the Faribault Country Club on December 8, 2016, for our Seventh Annual Red Sweater Luncheon.   As usual, lively conversation and excellent food made the gathering all the more festive.  View pictures of the gathering by Clicking Here.


CLASS LUNCHEON - October 20, 2016    

It was a beautiful but windy day when some 23 classmates and spouses gathered at Porter Creek in Burnsville for our Fall Luncheon.  As usual, the conversation was lively and the food excellent.  Unfortunately, a malfunction of the camera of your intrepid webmaster yielded no pictures of the event.  If anyone has pictures, please forward them to Butch Welsandt and I will see that they get added to the site.



Our 55th Class Reunion, held August 19-20, 2016, was a roaring success!  Some 80 classmates, spouses, and significant others attended the event of Friday evening, while 71 attended the gathering on Saturday.
