2018 Reunion

Save The Date




Class Ring Challenge:  Al Freiberg  posted locating his high school class ring.  We challenge attendees to find theirs too and bring to reunion (may not fit our ring fingers anymore but can be pinkie ring for the reunion).



      Happy New Year everyone!   We hope you had a nice Christmas and wish you peace, prosperity, and much happiness in this New Year.  We are starting out the New Year by putting some final touches on the plans for our 55th Class Reunion, which will be held in conjunction with Pierre's homecoming, the weekend of September 14 & 15, 2018.  

     The ClubHouse Hotel & Suites will be our host hotel.  The block room rate will be $134 plus tax per night.  That price will be honored from Wednesday night, September 12, through Sunday night, September 16 and a free room upgrade will be given based upon availability.

     The reunion will officially start on Friday, with registration Friday afternoon at the ClubHouse Hotel; a tailgate party Friday night at Drifters across the bridge in Ft. Pierre; and the Governor's homecoming game.  The Governors will play Huron.

     Saturday night we will have dinner at RedRossa in Pierre, and Sunday morning we'll have a continental breakfast at the ClubHouse Hotel.

     For those of you coming in early, we invite you to join us at the ClubHouse Hotel for an early bird gathering Thursday night.

We are working on a possible event for Saturday morning or afternoon and will let you know about that later.

     In order to make sure we have enough rooms reserved in the room block, and to plan for the other events, we'd appreciate it if you would let us know if you plan to attend the reunion; if you plan to stay at the ClubHouse Hotel; and if so, what nights you plan to stay there.

     If you have any suggestions or ideas on how to make this reunion more enjoyable and memorable, we welcome them.

     Please contact us via email at

     Phone or text us at 605-222-7479.


     We are updating our mailing and email lists and would like your help in doing so.  We do not have current email addresses for the following classmates.  If you have a current email address for any of these, please let us know. Thank you.
