Less Than TWO WEEKS to Go!

First, some news from the Reunion Committee: We sold our 100th ticket and now appear to have enough funds for some free pizzas for folks attending Saturday evening’s event at the Tough Rider Lounge (A/K/A the Waveland Golf Course Clubhouse). Much like the top 40 song lists from the past, the hits just keep on coming!

On September 30 and October 1, in less than two weeks, we will get together for a couple of nights to reminisce, tell stories, and renew friendships. We have put together a short summary of the weekend’s events, and a couple of To Do in Des Moines lists. It’s been a long time since we last got together, and time is flying by.

If you haven’t bought a ticket yet, please join us! Order online at www.TRHS1970.com, or buy at the door for $70 (cash or check). 

Tell me again – WHAT are we doing at the Reunion??
