I have received information from some of our classmates of the passing of three more of our class members.  Ellen Logston apparently passed away some years ago, but we have no details as to the time of her death nor the cause, or location of her death.   Gerald Sondreal passed in 2014 while living in Las Alamos, New Mexico of MDS and related physical ailments.  Susan Stewart Shatraw informed us she had been contacted by Kay Nelson Smith-Dechenne’s daughter of her passing.  She passed away in Bothell, WA, but no further details were provided.  Please refer to the “In Memory” section of our website for additional information which may be available concerning these classmates.    

We hope that many of you are planning to attend our 61st class reunion in Grand Forks the weekend of September 17-19, 2021 at the Hilton Garden Inn.  We have received reservations from a number of classmates and hope that many more of you will plan to attend.   Lance Twedt has also received reservations for the reunion of the Class of ’61 which will be held in conjunction with our reunion.   He is hoping for a good turnout as well.

A reminder that reservations need to be made by September 1, 2021, although payment for these reservations can be made at the reunion in September.  We need a count prior to the reunion for the hotel services we are purchasing.  The cost remains at $50 per person as it has been for last three reunions.  Please contact us at your earliest convenience or go on the website and register so that we can report an accurate count.  

We hope that everyone is healthy and feeling well and one way to ensure this to get vaccinated to protect yourself and others around you from an interference in your lives by the COVID pandemic.   At the present time, we do not anticipate a need to wear masks during our celebration, however we have received no information of the policy of the hotel.  Please remain flexible. 

We are looking forward to another successful reunion of the Class of ’60.  I am looking forward to great anticipation to reacquainting myself with all my brothers and sisters in my graduating class.   I hope all of you are feeling the same way.  Stay safe, stay well, and above all stay with us.  See you on September 17th!!!!!
