Our 60th Class Reunion Is Planned For May 6,2023

60th Anniversary Reunion Committee

Register Now For the 60th Anniversary Class Reunion 

You are cordially invited to attend the upcoming celebration for our 60th Class Reunion for the MHS Class of 1961 on Saturday, May 6, 2023, 5 pm – 9 pm. The event will be at Oakwood Country Club in Coal Valley, IL.  This happens to be the same location where we held our 50th Reunion. Along with music from the 60’s and a great floor for dancing. We have also arranged plenty of time to socialize with your friends and classmates. A selection of Pizza in lieu of a large dinner will be provided for this event. Also Turkey  sandwiches along with fruit and cupcakes will be available throughout the evening in a relaxing atmosphere.  A “Cash Bar” will be provided. The charges for the reunion will be $35 per classmate and $35 per spouse / guest. Part of the cost of the reunion will be subsidized from left over funds from our previous reunions and from donations from some of our generous classmates. Classmates will be allowed to bring up to 2 guests at $35 per guest. Your committee has done everything possible to keep the costs at a reasonable level. All past reunions over the last 60 years have met with great success and total gratification from all those who have attended.  Turn out has always been high and the camaraderie with your classmates takes everyone back in time on this special night.  We look forward to seeing everyone again with a night of friendship, laughter, reminiscing those old high school days and making it another memorable event.

Help us to alert others about our upcoming reunion.Do not hesitate to contact us at anytime (darrelrhagberg@gmail.com).

Setting up this particular reunion has been a difficult task for your committee due to the impact of Covid on our community in terms of labor shortages, ever increasing food costs, numerous venue closures, changes in venue management, and pent up demand causing excessive venue costs. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Soon our hard efforts will pay off.

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.
