The reunion was a blast (from the past) to say the least. I believe everyone found it somewhat shocking, but delightful fun and a touching coming together.
The golf tournament gang (36 - raw rookies and seasoned players) met up in the parking lot with much laughter. 27 years later more than a few "hi and who are you?" were noted (year book picture name tags came later).

The dinner and dance had a bigger crowd (90+) - a comfortable fit for the hall. Food - tasty, beer - cool & free, music - nostalgic & fun, great donated prize giveaways... much visiting, eating, drinking & dancing. As a more reasonable & responsible crowd in our forties we packed it in by 2 a.m.
$550. was raised for WIN House.

"I had an absolutely incredible time......and it was so worth the trip."
"It's so strange to think that I haven't seen some people for 27 years! I recognized some but I have to admit, my memory failed me on many of them."
"It was great and strange at the same time to see everyone after all these years."
"The entire day and evening was a reminder of how lucky we were to have all graduated together. I don't think I have ever been in a room with that many happy, excited and smiling people."
