We had a fantastic reunion! Tons of people came. Barley Hoppers was full and hopping! Saturday night at the Elks was awesome, the food was yummy, oh how I will miss bite-size steak, and everyone just enjoyed everyone.
Gone were the cliques and teasing, present was friendship and love.
There were quite a few of us dancing on the dance floor. I enjoyed the song YMCA and all its glory and of course Shawn Riley playing guitar, minus the guitar. Yup! We had fun!
CLASS PICTURE . It is still being developed. Long story but unimportant! I will send them out probably in a couple weeks.
All the candid photos are on our Facebook page and our website. If you want to save some of the pictures from the website to your computer, please do so by the end of the month. The website is scheduled to shut down in November.
It was a splendid reunion. There is talk of a reunion in 5 years. If you are interested in helping with it, send me an email to let me know.
To those Lewistonites who decided to come last minute, we all loved having you there. You made the event that much more special!
Any left over monies from the reunion will be split in half--one half to help with the next reunion and the other half for a donated gift to the new LHS. If you would like to be part of the committee who decides what we donate to the school, just email me. email@example.com
While many attended the reunion, there were still others who could not attend but emailed or fb messaged me. Thank you all for your support and love.
God Bless. And yes, you will get at least one more email from me!

NAME TAG AND YOUR PICTURE
Your yearbook senior photo will be put on your name tag. If you did not have a picture in the yearbook, you can send a picture of yourself to, preferably from your teen years, to Jan Ferrell, firstname.lastname@example.org. If we don’t receive a picture from you, 1976 and 1975 yearbooks pictures will be used instead. (if that doesn’t scare you enough to send a pic, nothing will!)
We have door prizes to give out Saturday night. We have been receiving donations from classmates for these prizes. We have only scratched the surface of learning which of our classmates have talents or hobbies in which they could share for door prizes. We would love donations of classmate art, books, services, business products and delightful hobby creations. This opens an opportunity to share a bit of your talent with the rest of the class. Contact Lori Olson: email@example.com to donate an item for a door prize. We can include your business or hobby in a flyer given to each classmate Friday night.
