Fall Party

2022 Fall Party Information 

We are busy planning this year’s Fall Party.  It will be Saturday, September 24th. It will follow our established format, as it seems to work well.  I have banquet tables and chairs reserved for rental, as we did last year.  Meal seating seemed to work well with them and allowed trip hazard free space.  You are free to bring lawn chairs, as previously done, to use in the yard and around the campfire for comfortable seating and relaxing conversations.  

The per person cost for the party will be $25 this year. Increased catering costs and the additional table and chair rental costs have added to our expenses so we need to raise the fee to cover them.  If you have an issue and believe that you are going to be unable to attend due to the price increase, please contact me privately.  

Arrival is anytime after 3:00.  We are at 3122 Highway 61, not far from town, just past the Sweetland Feed Mill.  Parking will be in the pasture behind the house.  The man mansion is fully insulated and has a concrete floor.  If you need handicap access, you can be dropped off and picked up right at the overhead door for an easy entry.  The area is conducive for canes, walkers or wheelchairs.  If you need someone to park or retrieve your vehicle after arrival at the access point we can have someone assist you with that.

Guy and A Grill will be catering our meal and it will be cooked onsite and we plan to begin service around 5:15.  We will have your chop, chicken, or veggie burger sandwiches as indicated on your reservation.  Sides will be baked beans, potato salad, chips and cherry crisp.  A s’mores station will be set up by the evening campfire, in the field. Plan to bring your own beverages, as usual, in a cooler.  We will not be providing any beverages other than water, not bottled, on-site.

This will be our FINAL fundraiser for our FINAL class project.  We will give it one last big boost to complete our scholarship project before and during the 2022 Fall Party.  At the class meeting we will establish the committee to work with the Community Foundation on all the details.  We currently need about $9,000 toward our full endowment for an ongoing $1,000 annual Class of 1971 Scholarship for an MHS student seeking education or apprenticeship in a skilled trade.  I know that this seems like a large goal, but I have confidence that we will be able to have this larger legacy fully funded and ready to begin presenting at the end of the 2022-2023 school year.  What a legacy it will be!

A separate fundraising email has been sent.  A new page tab has been added to the site here for our Service Project Fundraising.  Donation link and information is provided there, so check it out.

We are getting excited and we’ll see you in September.
