Event Details


Here is your confirmation that our 60th reunion will happen on September 17-19, 2021 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Grand Forks.  I have been in contract with Dean Schroeder, Central Class of '60, and since they had to cancel their plans for their 60th in 2020 because of the Covid-19 pandemic, they will be joining us. Dean and his group were in the final planning stages for most of the activities and so Dean and I decided that we would combine the two classes into the schedule that the Class of '60 had already planned.  This would reduce the reunion time from Thursday to Sunday to Friday night to Sunday morning. 

The two classes will combine for three activities for this weekend:  The no-host get together at the Hilton Garden Inn bar on Friday night; the banquet on Saturday night at the Hilton Garden Inn, and no-host breakfast on Sunday morning at the Hilton Garden Inn.  In addition, we will offer a golf game for those interested and a tour of Central High School. Other activities can be organized by each class if they so desire.
