Our 60th Class Reunion For 2023 Will Be At The Oakwood Country Club


Your committee met on October 3rd. The committee has decided to hold the reunion on Saturday, May 6, 2023,  from 5 - 9 pm at the Oakwood Country Club in Coal Valley, IL.  We are planning to have a pizza buffet in lieu of a large dinner. We will not a have a booklet for this event but plan to have a handout listing those classmates known to have passed. A memorial will be presented for our fallen classmates at the reunion. Others ideas and suggestions regarding bios of our current classmates will be presented at our next meeting to be held at the Windmill Restaurant in East Moline, IL, on November 17.

We are currently estimating that 60-70 people will attend. Many of our classmates are in poor health or may have passed. Please let us know if you are aware of these classmates. We currently have 16 bad emails since our last mailing of just a few weeks ago! Please be sure to update your contact information with us. Also, let others know about the upcoming reunion.

Our 75th Birthday Party Was a Winner!

75th Birthday Party - Parkside Grill and Lounge, 2307 - 5th Avenue, Moline, Illinois, August 11, 2018.

We had a small turnout for our 75th birthday party (44 happy people), but everyone still had a great time. The Parkside Grill and Lounge also did a superb job with our small group. The Parkside was renovated from the "Parkside Tavern" and still retains some of its old charm.
