Fall Party

2021 Fall Party Update

 

We are busy planning this year’s Fall Party.  It will be Saturday, September 25th. We are hosting this event as part of our big 50th Reunion Celebration.  The Reunion Committee has been working hard to put together a wonderful weekend for us all.  Any questions about the 2021 Reunion or Fall Party, not answered here, need to be addressed via email to our Reunion Committee. Their information can be found on the 50th Reunion tab.

 

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 right at the overhead door for an easy entry.

 

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 apple crisp.  A s’mores station will be set up by the evening campfire, in the field.  Water and coffee will be available, but otherwise, plan to bring your own beverages in a cooler. 

 

We will have our regular music sound system playing oldies from our high school years.  I have tables and folding chairs rented this year for dinner service seating in the man mansion or outdoors.  If you wish to bring a lawn chair for the yard or by the fire, feel free to do so.  

 

I will not be doing any of our usual fundraising this year.  We will give it one last big boost to complete our scholarship project at the 2022 Fall Party and establish the committee to work with the Community Foundation on all the details.  We currently have about $9,000 toward our $10,000 endowment.  If we hadn’t had to cancel last year, we would have met our goal, so I know that we will get it done in 2022.

 

John Beckey and Jim Reynolds will be working with the class to identify and raise funds for our official 50th Reunion Project.  Keep looking for updates on the BIG 50 Project which will be coming soon.

 

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