THANK YOU ALL FOR A SUCCESSFUL 35th REUNION!
One look around Glory Days on Friday night or the crowded ballroom at Piggy's on Saturday night would tell you that everyone had a great time reuniting with former classmates. Friday night's social may have been a bit more challenging since we opted to skip the name tags and let everyone just jump into the mingling but it didn't seem to stop anyone from having fun. Some surprise guests included Sean Dwyer, Lucille Knobloch Roskowiak and Cathy "Sparkles" Monsoor.
