That's right, it’s been 60 years. Your reunion committee has been busy putting together a festive midweek -- yes, midweek (we're all retired, right?) -- gala two-night observance celebrating the 60th anniversary of our graduation from Dear Old Denfeld. 


·      September 13 and 14 this year. That's a Wednesday and Thursday in early autumn, right when Duluth is at its loveliest. We'll gather at 5 p.m. both nights, with Thursday's dinner starting at 6:30.


  • ·    First night (Wednesday, Sept. 13): We'll be back at the Dry Dock Bar and Restaurant for an informal cocktail party replete with plenty of snacks and lots of conversation with shared memories and recent updates on our lives. That's the same establishment off I-35 in rural Duluth where we gathered for our banquet five years ago.
  •     Second night: (Thursday, Sept. 14): Downtown Duluth's historic Union Depot (now known as the St. Louis County Heritage and Arts Center) where we'll gather for a banquet in the Great Hall for prime rib dinner with all the usual accompaniments, including dessert. A full bar will be available. A brief program will be presented.

 Cost: $50 per person for both nights;  $30 per person for those wishing to attend just one of the occasions.

We've got a list of around 275 of us still up and around and, we hope, eager to mark this milestone. Without saying for sure, this could be our final formal gathering, leaving the door open for possible future luncheons from time to time as the years fly by.
