the f5 refresh key to be sure you have the latest changes!!
The 2003 reunion was held on Nov 30th at McGees in Council Bluffs, Ia. About 150 people attended with about 100 there at one time. We packed the place.
I am sorry that I didn't get to talk to everyone. I did get to talk with many though, and everyone seemed pleased with the event. There were lots of scrapbooks, pictures, articles there. It was fun looking through them and listening to the stories of the good ol' days!
