November Lunch Bunch 😷

Dwight has requested a Lunch Bunch gathering be scheduled at noon on Saturday, November 6 at Frank's Pizzeria in Silvis.

The majority who attend our Lunch Bunch events are at an increased risk for COVID-19 due to our age group... plus many have health issues which increases their vulnerability. I trust that anyone who plans to attend will follow CDC's COVID-19 guidelines to minimize risk to our friends.  


It's Rescheduled!

We have combined our postponed 50 year class reunion with a 70th birthday celebration for the Class of 1970. Keep August 12-14, 2022 blocked out for a fun reunion weekend!  Anyone interested in helping on the 2022 reunion committee should contact Trudy. 

As more details become available, we'll post them here.
