1983 Reunion

20 Year Celebration
June 29 - July 1, 1983
Isaak Walton - Pierre

Reunion Synopsis
Nearly one-half of the classmates from the Class of ‘63, their spouses, families and special friends gathered August 12, 13 and 14, 1983 to celebrate our 20 year reunion; many of which had not returned to Pierre since graduation. Classmates came from as far away as California, New Jersey, Texas, and from many places in between. Many had changed in their appearance a a good deal & and yet many looked the same as they did twenty years ago.

It was a weekend filled with wonder and excitement. It was a  time for looking back and reminiscing about things that happened in the prime of our youth, and it was a time for reflecting upon the persons and things that helped form and shape our lives into what they are today. It was a time of sharing memories that we will cherish for a long, long time.

It was so nice to see everyone so comfortable with one another and sharing so much of themselves with each other. There was a genuine feeling of caring and friendship for one another throughout the weekend. It was a weekend that we feel brought the Class of ‘63 closer than it had ever been before.

We are thankful that we had the opportunity to gather and share such a meaningful weekend and we anxiously look forward to seeing everyone again when we gather for our 25 year reunion in 1988.
