Venue: Undetermined
Date: June 15th, 2018
(ending June 16th, 2018)
RSVP By: May 31st, 2018
Details: Hi guys!
It’s quite a surprise... 40 years and it’s gone like warp speed. I know I’m trying to stop blinking so much and slowing down to a walking pace to take in all that comes along these days...not just because I don’t/can’t move faster than a snails pace, but because as I’m older I’ve realized more of what I’ve missed than I care to. I dare say, each one of you are feeling the same.

It’s hard to grasp 40 years is coming up since we all gathered on the 50 yard line to receive the prize we had just spent 12+ years toiling for.

I want to make special note that this reunion marks not just 40 years, but also the passing of more and more of our life long friends & class mates. It’s rather sobering. As I look back and remember our childhood, we were all invincible, but looking at who we are today, I think I can speak for us all, when I say life is short, and we are at the mercy of time and our much older bodies. All of us on the reunion committee are feeling the loss of our friends and we are planning on a special memorial table... We need to remember and pay homage to our friend!

SO, We plan on starting off on Friday June 15th at 6pm with a cocktail party hosted by Scott (Whitey) & Bonnie Kamphuis at Kamphuis Blueberry farm (casual) food will be provided, cash bar. Music included.

On Saturday June 16 we will have a golf scrabble for those interested (details and location to follow). Saturday evening we are being hosted at Dutch Village Pavilion, full bar (cash) and WOW what a spread of catered delicacies we all grew up on and still love to this day! Dancing to music till sun up! We HOPE to have the old group of our talented players back to rock us through the night. Rocky, Jeff, Steve, Bryan, Guy, Ken any anyone who wants to join in!

Sunday “TBA” for those who want we are working on a Sunday venue as well.
