Class Of 1971 45th Reunion
Location: The Longest Yard
Details: 45th Reunion Dallas Community Class of 1971

Well, the response from the “Feeler Letter” wasn’t bad. It was also not great, as I always hope to at least hear back from everyone. Not one came back returned to sender so that tells me I have a pretty good address list.
Anyway, the date for our reunion will be Saturday July 30th. We, I say we, because Diana Hawbaker has graciously offered to help out when/where I need it. Diana has also jumped in with being on the Dallas Center Fall Festival Committee so she will be a busy lady.
Back on track here. WE, decided on July 30th for a variety of reasons. The restaurant/bar The Longest Yard, formerly The Harvest Moon, has had staffing issues at times. They struggled big time at last year’s Fall Festival. And any date in June we felt just would not be enough notice, mostly because I kinda lagged behind getting going on this. There were other considerations, but you get the gist of it.
The reunion will still be held on the restaurant side of The Longest Yard in Dallas Center. The K I S S [keep it simple stupid] method will be used again. If you wish to eat, you may order from the menu and, of course, there will be a cash bar.
Hey! Come celebrate with former classmates & old friends. Our class has gotten together almost every 5 years. I believe we missed a 15, 25, & 35. Our 20 was by far the best attended yet. Our 40th wasn’t far behind. Personally from me to all of you that have not, could not for whatever reason have never attended, or have not been to one for years… PLEASE try to come. I would very much enjoy seeing you again!

Dallas Coummunity [now DC-G] "Class of 1971"
Location: The Harvest Moon Tavern & Restaurant . Dallas Center, Iowa. - Friday Evening 5-7pm. 5-6 Socializing, 6-7 Dinner.
Details: DALLAS COMMUNITY CLASS OF 1971 [ NOW KNOWN AS DALLAS CENTER-GRIMES ] Alright! Well I believe I've sent out enough emails/letters and given enough time for RSVP's. A little surprised at the low turn out, but maybe more will decide to come as the time gets near. To date 25 responded, 20 said they will be attending. Many spouses coming along also, good to hear. A reminder, we are having this in the restaurant side of the Harvest Moon in Dallas Center Friday Night, August 26th. A social hour is planned from 5-6PM, [there is a cash bar], dinner from 6-7PM, [everyone pays for their meal] and hopefully more socializing after! We will be the largest group in the restaurant. Denise, the owner, has asked if we would consider the following: burgers, rib eye, pulled pork sandwiches, any salads, steak, fettuccine, as our main choices. It will help them serve us faster. However the full menu is still open to us. Saturday, many have indicated and/or have reservations about being in the parade that morning. Not a problem, this is why I ask for input. Some will not be sticking around the next day, or just want to sit and watch the parade. Maybe some would be interested in going through the old school. Between Vicky and myself that can be arranged. All this can be discussed Friday Night. Wow just a few months ago there was all kinds of time, now its just around the corner and I'm quickly becoming a wreck! Any questions, ideas, suggestions, don't hesitate to call or email. I so look forward seeing all of you at the FALL FESTIVAL!
