Our 55-year Reunion Will Be August 1 - 4, 2024.
Write it on your calendar right now, so you don't forget. We are very much in the beginning of the planning stage, but we have just signed a contract with the Gateway Hotel for our Saturday night dinner. The Friday evening gathering and dinner will be at Reiman Gardens.
Feel like helping out?
Although you may notice at the upper right as well as at the far right, a link to "Please click here to chip in" to classreport.org, this website is fully funded and needs no further contributions. However, if you do feel like helping support our reunion financially, there is a much better option! The Reunion Planning Committee has only enough money in its account to get the ball rolling. We have other upcoming expenses that will mostly eventually be covered by people's registration. In the meantime, if anyone would like to donate to help cover the expenses of the reunion over and above their registration fees, you could:
- Send a check made out to "Ames High Class of 1969" to Rex Heer, 1015 192nd Street, Boone, IA, 50036
- Venmo money to @Gloria-Zmolek
- Paypal money to [email protected]
Nobody needs to do this, but the opportunity is there. (Thanks so much to those who have already donated!)
Additionally, we have some committees already in place for planning, but we will be needing more help, and for most of the work, you do not need to reside in Ames. In the past, we had one big committee, but this time we are dividing the duties among sub-committees, so the bulk of individual efforts can be more narrowly focused. Just let us know if this is something you would like to do and we will let you know what needs we have. We also are open to any suggestions you might have.
We have also reserved a block of guest rooms at the Gateway Hotel (when making a reservation, be sure to mention you are with the Ames High Class of 1969 55 Year Reunion). Other hotel options will be forthcoming.
Please Update Your Info!
Most importantly, we need your current email address so we can contact you with timely important updates. We will not share your email address with others, unless you confirm that you don't mind sharing it with classmates on our class website. Email us: [email protected]
To the right, just above the globe are links to the Class Directory. There you will find all our class of 1969 classmates, their graduation photos, and whatever other info they have chosen to share. Whether you are able to attend the reunion or not, if you haven't done so already, please update your info (especially your "Bio" and a recent photo). You may edit your info directly by looking a bit below the globe at right, and clicking on VIEW OR EDIT MY PROFILE. Or, send us an email with an attached photo and/or a summary of what you have been doing for the last 50+ years! (Only Gloria or Rex are able to post recent profile photos.) We'd love to hear from you.
We hope you are well and can't wait to see you!!!
