I got snail mail from Janine Geiszler (she's in Texas) asking about reunion so I sent her the info and link to signup. I haven't heard back but know she wanted to come back for reunion.

I talked with Lori(Dunnicliff) Siegal and Deb (Watland) Mohr.  Lori's son has cancer and it isn't looking good so I don't think she will be coming.  Deb is thinking about it.  I told her to bring Eric.  I think they will be a no show though.  Deb knew nothing about it.  Maybe the card got to her this week like mine did.

Yay!  20 classmates with photos posted!

How about the rest of you?  C'mon!

Jane Olson (Dreis)

Oh, no!  So sorry to read about your son, Lori Dunnicliff Siegal, and your husband, Juli Jafvert Bunting.  Do what you need to do for yourself and your families, and know that you will be missed at the reunion.

Hello Classmates here we are in the final week waiting to see faces from the past. Just thought I would see where most out of towners are staying for the weekend. Hotels, family, friends etc. If hotels any good rates or groups booking into same hotels?

Hi Noel,

I always stay at the Homewood Suites across from the Fargodome.  My buddy, Tom, gives me a decent rate and the place is clean, the people are great, and it is in a great location.  And, it is on the site where the old Starlite Outdoor Theater used to be.  I just thought of that and it makes no difference whatsoever.  

See you there AND in Duluth on July 28.

I always stay at Scandia Hotel on 4th Street North, across from Sanford Hospital.  Clean, quiet other than the occasional helicopter and ambulance.  Only $60 for 1 person incl taxes.  Only amenity -- free coffee 24-7.  But then again, I'm always heading out to spend time with Dad, so I don't use a hotel for its perks.

I just checked this a.m. online and Homewood was booked.  Probably due to the Paul McCartney concert.

Hi Barb! I know you had mentioned having the yearbook scanned. I would have no problem doing that for the class if someone wants to let me know. Maybe I'll see Cindy in the hall at work and I can ask her ;)

And Cindy, if you see this, I need to talk to you before the middle of August to see if you would like a wall of shelving we have in storage downstairs. Very nice and sturdy army type. 701-293-2830 me at work, thanks Cindy! yes

Thank you so much to all of you who did the planning and the legwork for the reunion.  It's great to be able to reconnect with classmates.

I just want to say from the bottom of my heart, a great big thank you to everyone on the committee for a job well done. Also thank you to all of you that were there. I know I'm not the only one that totally enjoyed the weekend meeting friends from the past and being stumped trying to figure out who some of you were. There were some classmates that looked the same (minus some hair and/or hair color changes and length changes etc). I sure hope it doesn't take them a whole week to clean the building from all the BS that may be deep on the floor. LOL It sure seems like  another 10 years could be along time to wait for us all to get together again so maybe a 45th??? Or just informal ones every few years? Lets use this site to communicate with each other and just look at possible groups meeting up in Fargo or in areas where we all live. Lets keep the ideas open. I wish everyone well from here in Duluth, Mn and if anyone is in the area or coming through the area that feels comfortable contacting me please do.

Thoroughly enjoyed sharing stories with everyone I had the pleasure of talking to on Friday night.  Would have liked to stay for Saturday and know it was a very successful weekend all around. 

Thank you so very much for all the time and effort put forth by the organizing committee.  You did a fabuous job

Many thanks to those who organized a great week-end for remembering.  It was great fun to meet classmates and to renew old acquaintances.  God has been good to our class even though all of us have had some ups and downs through the difference journeys we have taken.  May God continue to keep His watch over us and use us in our professions to positively impact society. With blessings.  C Kramer

Here is another Jeff Johnson from our class, he lives in Vegas, this is a good song ;)

Jeff (J) Johnson



The YouTube posted is credited to JJ Johnson. I'm not sure that's the other Jeff Johnson (Jeff Paul Johnson) in our class. I know it's not me though (Jeff Jay Johnson). 

It can be confusing. My sister (Marie Johnson, Fargo North class of 1975) married a JEFF JOHNSON! That made for interesting family gatherings...

We went to school with this Jeff, but he may have moved, ie went with some of us in Ben Franklin but moved so didn't go to North. I'll have to ask him!

I enjoyed many of my classmates, and I missed a few who did not make it.

Check out,  Russ is quite an artist, and I vaguely remember that at a previous class reunion.

Thanks to Cindy and all on the committee for organizing the 45th reunion.  Unfortunately I wil not be able to come to this one, I will be with my wife's youth orchestra in Vienna, Austria at that time. Maybe I can come to the next one (50th?!?)

Cindy Nord (Lunneborg)

We'll miss you Gary but if I had the opportunity to visit Vienna, Austria, I'd choose that also! We'll miss you but hope to see you in 5 years! Have fun & enjoy!
