Past Reunions

 

Class of 1970

 "The Class of '70 Turns 70" was the theme of our 50+2 birthday bash (aka class reunion) which took place September 23rd and 24th. Friday night was a casual get together at Pave. It was a beautiful night full of great conversation, picture Taking and several orders of chislic! Saturday evening, we gathered at Minnehaha Country Club for a social hour, dinner and a birthday cake complete with 70 candles. More than 60 classmates were present to catch up and reminisce about the good old days. It was agreed we will meet again in three years to celebrate our 55th. A committee will meet in a year's time to begin planning. If you have ideas or want to help plan, contact Jim Hargens: hargensfam@yahoo.com, Mary Brzica: marybrzica@yahoo.com or Laura Long: lllong52@hotmail.com.
 

Class of 1971

A wonderful time was had by all at the Class of '71 50+1 reunion on Sept 9 and 10, 2022. Friday was a rain-soaked evening, but it didn't dampen our happy hearts. We had great fun reminiscing, eating, singing, hugging, etc. with the Crabgrass Crew at the acreage of Deb Conway and Dr Tom Montoya. Saturday began with a tour of O’G, and a busload toured Sioux Falls in the afternoon.  Saturday Mass was celebrated by classmate Fr. Gregg Frankman at the Minnehaha Country Club. Our class president, Paul Strohfus welcomed us with a delicious meal.  It was truly a memorable weekend for all who attended.

Class of 1980

The Class of 1980 had a fabulous time gathering in late July (two years late because of the pandemic).

Saturday included a tour of O’Gorman High School along with mass. Mass included Fr. Chuck Cimpl as celebrant and classmates as readers and musicians. Saturday night was at R Wine Bar downtown. A great weekend with incredible people.
