To celebrate our collective 70th birthdays, some 66 classmates, spouses, and significant others gathered at the home of Sue (Gagnon) and Greg Carlson on Roberds Lake.  WHAT A DAY AND WHAT AN EVENT!  The weather was perfect, not too hot  and a nice breeze off the lake to keep the mosquitoes away.  After a time for socializing and getting re-acquainted with each other, we all enjoyed a catered meal of broasted chicken, potato salad, cold slaw, and dinner rolls, followed by desert.  A delicious 70th Birthday Cake, along with a variety of additional yummies provided by the members of the organizing committee, rounded out the meal.  More visiting and conversation followed.  To view pictures of  the event, click on the links below.
