Class of 1996 15-Year Reunion
Details: Hello Mustangs! I hope this message finds you well. It has already been 15 years since we graduated, and I think it is due time for a class reunion. I have mentioned this to a few people here and there, and it seems like there is some interest. So, I have messages through to everyone I could from the Class of 1996, and I am posting information here, as well. My goal is to form a committee that can accomplish the following: 1. Take a leadership role in planning the reunion. In complete honesty, I am bringing this idea to you because I am excited about a reunion, but I personally do not have a great deal of time to spare on planning the occasion. Since I am living back in Dubuque I have no problem being a point person for some of the in-town details, but I am looking for some other people to take on some of the primary leadership responsibilities. 2. Choose a date for the reunion. I am currently thinking sometime in the fall (several home football games are possibilities). 3. Contact as many classmates as possible. 4. Find locations and plan the details of the party. 5. Accomplish any other tasks I haven’t thought of! If you are interested in being a part of this, please reply to me directly and I can organize us into a planning committee. If you are not interested in planning the reunion but you would like to take part, please share this information with anyone you know from our class. I have contacted many people recently but I know I am missing quite a few. Thank you for any help you can give with the reunion. I am excited to see everyone again and hear how things are going. Best wishes until then! Brad Cavanagh
