The second meeting of the Class of ’63 reunion committee will continue the planning of the 55-year get-together for 2018 on Tuesday, Nov. 14. It will be hosted by Marlene Iverson Robertson at her home, 8407 W. 97 1/2 St., Bloomington. Time is 10 a.m.
Any member of the class is still invited to join the group as it moves forward on formalizing the 55-year reunion. The sessions are quite informal and are often considered mini-reunions in themselves. If you’re interested, you can call Marlene at 952-944-2176
We already know when and where. At its initial meeting Sept. 20, the committee set dates for the 2018 festivities. A golf outing is scheduled for Thursday, June 21, at Gross National Golf Club in northeast Minneapolis. Tee times will begin at 10 a.m. Then on Friday, June 22, beginning at 6:30 p.m., classmates and their guests will convene at the Bloomington Event Center for hors d’oeuvres and a chance to catch up with old friends from our school days.
For the time being, please note the dates. More information will be coming as we get closer to the events being planned for you.
Current members of the reunion committee are co-chairs Lynne (Nichols) Hendrickson and Marlene (Iverson) Robertson, plus Chuck Deckas, JoAnn (Normington) Fischer, Sally Gorman, Dale Hendrickson, Clarice “Dese” (Lindquist) Huss, Karen (Ukura) Kilberg, John and Jan (Johnson) Larsen, Brian Lundquist, Jon Mathisrud, John Moon, Duane Ostlund, Karen (McDonald) Schiller, John Selstad, Laura Stolpe, Jeff Thomas, Linda (Moe) Victor, Bob Wandberg and David Wiencke.
A lot of work is still to be done. The committee has a long list of tasks, which include settling on an hors d’ouevres menu, preparing and sending out mailings, assigning workers to check-in tables, providing name tags for all who’ll be there, putting together a short program for Friday night, preparing graphic displays and assigning people to shoot photos at the events.
In short, we’ll be busy during several more meetings as well as in between, making sure that nothing is overlooked in providing a memorable time for all those who attend.
Everyone in the class can help too by checking the list of missing students plus the list of deceased classmates, in case you know of someone not included in the class records.
Please make note of the reunion dates next year, June 21 and 22.
