Classmates:

Greetings from my house to your house.  After this past year, I will never complain again about not spending enough time at home!!  As with many people this past year, I have been hibernating like a bear in a cave.  I did my best to follow the recommendations of COVID experts, and for the most part was successful.  Unfortunately, on Thanksgiving of 2020, I became ill with the COVID virus and spent several days in the hospital.   After being discharged and feeling much better, although in a weakened state and apparently cured of the COVID virus, I contracted an autoimmune disorder for which I am currently receiving treatment.  I am doing well and expect to continue over time.

In reviewing my last message to you, I want to confirm that we are planning our 60th reunion to take place on September 17-19, 2021 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Grand Forks.  Since my last message to you confirming our reunion, I have been in contract with Lance Twedt, Central Class of '61.  He is planning a 60th reunion for his class this fall.  He has invited the Class of '60 to join our reunion with the Class of '61 over the same weekend in September in Grand Forks.  Because we were in the final stages of organizing our reunion last year when it was cancelled, Lance and I decided that we would combine the two classes into the schedule that the Class of '60 had already planned.  This would reduce the reunion time from Thursday to Sunday to Friday night to Sunday morning. 

The two classes would combine for three activities for this weekend:  The no-host get together at the Hilton Garden Inn bar on Friday night; the banquet on Saturday night at the Hilton Garden Inn, and no-host breakfast on Sunday morning at the Hilton Garden Inn.  Other activities can be organized by each class if they so desire.  All expenses incurred by these three activities will be shared by the classes.   Other activities which may be scheduled will be the responsibility of each class.

Since the last Class of '60 reunion, we have lost two valued members of our organizing committee--Gayle Budge and Herb Helgeson.  I may be contacting some in the Grand Forks area to lend a hand with the planning and execution of our 60th reunion this fall.  Lance has also assured me that he will organize assistance from his classmates.   Hopefully, due to our preplanning that was completed before the cancellation, the shortening of the reunion to three days and by combining with the Class of '61, this celebration should be fairly simple to organize.   More detailed information will be forthcoming on the website, e-mails and postcards.   We will need some information concerning of the numbers of people who plan to attend in order for our plans to be as accurate as possible.

If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, or other input, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Stay well, stay safe, stay healthy, stay positive, and above all, stay with us.

Still Your President,

Dean Schroeder
