Our 63rd Reunion Picnic Event Was a Success!
The event was well attended. Warm, sunny weather greeted classmates and guests. Several circular tables were nicely set for comfortable socializing and eating while having a spectacular view of a sparkling American Lake. The food was healthy and tasty and was available buffet style. The event's highlight was a surprise ceremony to honor Charlie Bergeron for his 50 years of committee leadership, which produced 10 successful reunion events.

A photo album for the event has been added.

November 17th, 2022, Event at Meadow Park Golf Club:
A total of 19 people attended this recent event. Another 7 signed up but canceled at the last minute due to injury, illness, and other unavoidable issues. So, if everyone had been able to attend, there would have been at least 26 attendees. Based on the actual attendance, the no-shows, and the time of the year, our guess is that the next event, in the Spring, will likely have a much higher attendance.
Everyone liked this venue. It has good potential for future events. Everyone agreed that we should do it there, again, in the spring. The setting was pleasant for a large group. The menu was good for a lunch event. The single-level and level-entry-layout were also appealing. Plus, Meadow Park Golf Club is easy to get to with good parking. So everyone was in good spirits and having a good time.
Be sure to note on your calendar that we will be doing it again in the Spring. The date will be determined in January, and an email notification will be sent out. Even though this one was the 3rd “reunion” event since August, a lot of classmates seem to be up for multiple events during the year. Our age undoubtedly has something to do with it.
We hope to see you at the next one! It will be a great opportunity to let your teenage self come out.
