60th Reunion – 2019
The Board of Directors is beginning to plan for the 60th reunion. Suggestions were made to avoid the Homecoming weekend and move the 60th reunion to September to take advantage of lower hotel rates, better weather and Active recruitment. Mike Dean is looking at venues, but there will undoubtedly be a Duluth Experience feature. Tim McEvoy has again agreed to handle music.
