Thanks Jessica! I am kicking some in too this time, as I haven't attended past reunions! Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Hi All,

The class account currently has about $1200.00 in it.  However,  I just received an invoice for about $203.00 for the class website hosting and domain name registration.  Therefore effectively we currently have about $1000.00 in the account that we could put towards the reunion.

If we are  renting a room/hall for the reunion,  then I would estimate, based on the pricing Red Barn provided, that the rental fee could be on the order of $800.00, and that does not include food or beverages.

Adding food and beverages to the hall rental, may put us  over the $1000 that we currently have in the account.

If we hire a band, then I suspect we will need more donations.

Hi Jeffery,
Let us know what's the most convenient way to send donation money to the class account.
Thanks again for the all work you're putting into this.

Steven Kaufhold

as an example, we could plan on $25 per person attending with maybe 50 people

How many people do we think might attend the class reunion? I am checking with a friend who owns Donnatelis for catering options, and it would be helpful to have an approximate attendance number. Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weekend!

Thank you to those of you asking about how to make donations to the class account.  I  plan to contact the bank tomorrow to determine the best approach for depositing into that account.

The class account is an account I established with my bank to hold the class funds that  I had received from Tari Buckley .  It is my understanding that  Tari was the previous "keeper of the funds"/treasurer.

Stay tuned for more details.

Your generosity and willingness to donate is very much appreciated!

Steven Kaufhold thank you for the idea of a per person reunion fee charge, with an estimate of maybe 50 people. 

Echoing Yvette's question earlier- for the past reunion's does anyone know approximately how many people attended?  I am sure it varied from year to year.  I assume that RSVP and payment was required for those planning to attend?

This is  Tari Keapproth's (Buckley) husband responding,

At the 35th reunion there was over 200 people

 I believe a great time was had by all 

Each person paid a fee ticket price.  What money was left over after all costs was paid  went back into a CD for when more things for the class were needed like the web site, it was covered,  That is the money that was giving to Jeff to be used for the class use for whatever purpose. Between that and the suggested $25 dollars per person it could be a good time.

I believe the 45th should be a large reunion again, I dont know about you all but Im getting up there in age and yes I am also an Indian (a Humboldt Indian) the class of 75

Thank you Tari Keapproth's husband for responding to the question of how many people attend the reunions and other reunion info!  If there is a good turn out it sounds like there could be around 200 attendees. 

For those who have asked where to send the donations for the class reunion, there are two different ways:

   1.  Send a  check/cash to me (Jeff DuBois) and then I will deposit it into the class account.

        My home U.S. postal mail address is:

       Jeff DuBois

        20 Black Oak Road

        North Oaks, MN 55127


   2.  Or you can deposit it directly into the class reunion account from your banking institution:

          The reunion account is at US Bank - local branch Shoreview MN. 


             Bank Routing number:  091000022     

             Account number:  104785698275

Thanks Jeff for spearheading our 45 reunion!  Check is in the mail for $200 that Tim Shannon and I collected at the last reunion that was held at the Car Bar in Cottage Grove!

Connie Redding (Flora)

I will be posting this information one our class facebook page.  Does anyone have a dollar amount that you would expect from each person?  Are invites being sent out or is this all word of mouth? 

07/12/19 12:55 PM #1582    


Steven Kaufhold

I'll suggest $20 to $25 each

07/22/19 07:02 AM #1583    


Jeffery DuBois

Connie asked about the reunion and whether we are spreading information about the event via  word of mouth or mail, etc.  At this time the messaging about the event has been via this web site and perhaps word of mouth.

I do not currently have a list of addresses (usps or email)  or phone numbers to send direct messages to.

Does someone have a list compiled from prior reunions?

I am not sure if this site has the ability to send out an "evite" email to the group such that  an email would go out to everyone who has a login for this website.   

I would be nice to send out something like an evite with RSVP as a way to determine how many people are planning to attend.  - Jeff

Steve Hardy,

Thank you very much for updating the home page with the class renion announcement.

Looks great!

We are looking into a DJ for the class reunion for the evening of October 5th.

Does anyone have suggestions for DJs we can contact  for availability and cost?






07/23/19 06:20 PM #1586    


Steven Bilderback

A friend of mine has a DJ setup. He's traveling for work more than he use to, I'll check with him, he lives in Prescott so he's close by. 
I'm having lunch with him Friday, I'll pass along the info then or sooner.

Jessica Aasved

Hi!  Just checked in and reminded myself to send the donation.  Check will be in the mail tomorrow (literally)!

Jeff you asked if anyone had a contact list of classmates.  I have photocopies of a list from 2009 and an excel spreadsheet roster (I may have collated the lists when I volunteered for the 2009 reunion).  So much changes in 10 years but it might be a start.  I can email them to you or print out copies and mail them.  Let me know if you are interested.  I also have the files from something called a "Class Reunion Book" that is images of things related to the class of 74.

Looking forward to the reunion!  Hope everyone is having a great summer!


07/26/19 08:46 AM #1588    


Yvette Fuchs (Nierenhausen)

We have secured a DJ for the Class Reunion! Thanks for your help in our search! Remember to RSVP by September 5th so we have a good head count for food planning. We are anticipating a $25 charge to help cover costs. Enjoy your weekend!

Can't make it to the reunion, but hope you all have a wonderful time!

Veronica Borowicz (Moen)I'm sorry to say that Veronica Borowics (Moen) passed away from cancer in March of 2019.

I remember her as a very good natured person with a sweet smile.

We'll miss you, Veronica!
