55TH ANNUAL REUNION IN 2019
It's time to start thinking about our next reunion which will occur sometime in the fall of 2019.
We're hoping to keep it casual, low-key and friendly. There's never enough time for talking and catching up, and we're going to do everything we can to make sure we've got plenty of time to sit and talk.
Please keep checking back for future updates.
We have usually scheduled a Friday night informal gathering for classmates, spouses, and friends, and we're looking for a casual location in Minneapolis with plenty of space to reconnect. We'd like to be able to order our own food and drinks.
This has generally been a little more organized than the Friday event, and it's also open to classmates, spouses, and friends.
We've always tried to avoid a sit-down meal, because experience has shown that once you sit, that's where you stay for the evening.
Lighter food and smaller plates allow you to get up, to move around and to bump into more people. It's an opportunity to get more food and drink and to start a new conversation.
SEE WHAT'S ONLINE
A 50-Year Video shot by Dick Sigurdson has been uploaded, and you can find it on the "Photo Albums" tab.
Photos taken by the photographers we hired are also online. You'll find them on the "Photo Alums" tab in files named Reunion Photos, Part 1 and Reunion Photos, Part 2.
And if you took photos during any part of the reunion, please upload them on the "Photo Albums" tab.
Thanks for continuing to visit our site. The profiles currently on the site are from 2014. You'll see a notification when new profiles can be uploaded.
We entered Washburn in 1961 in button-down shirts and knee ticklers, wingtips and flats, but before long we changed to blue jeans, sandals and beads. We wore crew cuts and bubbles as the decade began, but the Beatles changed everything and before long hair was hanging down to our shoulders.
We will have graduated fifty-five years ago this coming June. Now it's time for a party, and we’re looking forward to seeing as many WHS grads as possible.
PLANNING HAS STARTED
We'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions for venues and actiivities.
