Hello All - Rich (Dick's son) here,

Since the 2017 reunion was so much fun - let's have another!!!


  • Friday Pre-Reunion Golf Outing: We will be playing 18 holes starting around 10:00am. All are welcome to play. We will get done in time to start the reunion at 3:30.
  • Friday afternoon: I have the shelter reserved starting at 3:00 so come anytime after that. We will have a cookout for dinner - hamburgers & hotdogs.
  • Saturday morning/lunch: More fun and a catered lunch.
  • Saturday night: Horse racing at Prairie Meadows. This is a family atmosphere where the kids can check out the horses in the paddock and the older kids can do a little wagering (if your into that kind of thing).
