Event 2: **urgent Message Regarding Schedule Changes**
Venue: Undetermined
Date: August 11th, 2016

We WILL be having this reunion, but the Main Event will not be happening on Saturday, Aug 13. We were excited about the number of classmates who indicated on the websites that they were coming, but we did not receive a commitment (aka a check) from enough people to cover the costs.

Because they’re “No Charge”, the Friday night gathering at Summerfest and the Saturday morning school tour will go on as planned; please join us for those.

The golf outing is going on as planned!

The Main Event will be rescheduled at a future date. Your reunion committee will continue to work on gathering more of our classmates' contact information so we can spread the word further. It has been more challenging than expected to track down people after 40 years. You can help us by forwarding any info you may have on our classmates to help us reach them. (Send us your own email if you haven’t already done so.)

Keep watching this website for updates and the future date for our 40th (plus 1?) Reunion Main Event.

See you Friday!

Class of 1996
Title: Class of 1996 15-Year Reunion
Venue: Undetermined
Date: Undetermined
Details: Hello Mustangs! I hope this message finds you well. It has already been 15 years since we graduated, and I think it is due time for a class reunion. I have mentioned this to a few people here and there, and it seems like there is some interest. So, I have messages through to everyone I could from the Class of 1996, and I am posting information here, as well. My goal is to form a committee that can accomplish the following: 1. Take a leadership role in planning the reunion. In complete honesty, I am bringing this idea to you because I am excited about a reunion, but I personally do not have a great deal of time to spare on planning the occasion. Since I am living back in Dubuque I have no problem being a point person for some of the in-town details, but I am looking for some other people to take on some of the primary leadership responsibilities. 2. Choose a date for the reunion. I am currently thinking sometime in the fall (several home football games are possibilities). 3. Contact as many classmates as possible. 4. Find locations and plan the details of the party. 5. Accomplish any other tasks I haven’t thought of! If you are interested in being a part of this, please reply to me directly and I can organize us into a planning committee. If you are not interested in planning the reunion but you would like to take part, please share this information with anyone you know from our class. I have contacted many people recently but I know I am missing quite a few. Thank you for any help you can give with the reunion. I am excited to see everyone again and hear how things are going. Best wishes until then! Brad Cavanagh
