Friday: Our casual gathering packed the Richfield VFW. The highlight was enjoying the company of 13 of our teachers who attended.
Saturday: Almost 200 classmates and guests gathered at the Minnesota Valley Country Club. The room was filled with photos and memorabila. large round tables and a lovely room made mingling and reconnecting easy and fun. It was a great party.
Saturday Tours: The HS and museum tours gave us a picture of the history of Richfield and our high school during the last 50 years. Our class had 427 graduates and almost no diversity. The school grew to a class of over 900 students and now has shrunk back to 287 members in the class of 2013, and diversity has expanded to where there is equal distribution of all racial categories in the school. There are many changes, but many places that are still familiar. We saw girls playing volleyball in our gym and we could have found our lockers if we remembered the number.
Sunday Picnic: The weekend wrapped up with a fall picnic on the shores or Prior Lake where Mary Berger Garborg and her husband Rolf Garborg were fabulous hosts.
