50-year Class Reunion

August 11-13, 2016

Invitations have been mailed for our 50-year Class Reunion. If you did not received one please contact us immediately.  We have planned a variety of activities to reflect the diversity of our lifestyles and to invite all to reconnect in our home town this August. This is a "Come-as-You-Are" event (by now most of us have figured this out) and one designed with lots of mingle time to catch up with classmates. Our 50-year reunion is a "Once-in-a-Lifetime" occasion that you will be thrilled you attended.

We will kick off the three day blast on Thursday evening with a marshmallow roast and a whole lot of Story Tell'in at Mueller Canyon in the Reprobate tradition of weekend beverage consumption. Friday morning we hit the links at Lakeside Golf Course for 18 holes of Childplay and a lunch following. Then Friday evening we return to our North Canyon Park venue (site of the 45th Reunion) for a picnic outing and the chance to display your Ride. Saturday morning we visit graves of departed classmates to pay Deserved Tribute and Saturday evening we throw The Main Event at dear-old Bountiful High School.

See the details you need to know about each event as you complete the online registration process Register Here. Many classmates are making a Brave effort to make this event a treat for all . . . and at minimal cost. See the names of classmates who have registered at the respective event link under our "50-year Class Reunion" link on the left naviagation bar.

Just the novelty of gathering after 50 years will elevate the spirit . . . and should we have some stories to tell! So we invite you to make this occasion special by your participation and by embracing our diversity, saluting our lost youth, exchanging laughs and who knows . . . you may even recognize someone! 

See you in August,
Kenn Rasmussen and the 50-year Reunion Committee
