CLASS OF 1965 ... reunion 2023
The Class of 1965 held their 57th high school reunion this summer (2022) at the Stockpot on July 30th on a sunny but not too hot afternoon. The turn out was great as was the food and connection. We have our 58th reunion planned for September 10th, 2023 a Sunday afternoon at the Stockpot.

We’ve got an active class, we have monthly hikes/walks followed by lunch. During COVID it’s been BYOL as weather has allowed. We’ve settled on the 2nd Tuesday of each month and there’s an open invitation to all classmates.

We also have the gift of having Joe Lanning in our class. Joe is the owner of My Jeweler, located in Vancouver Washington and has donated 2 carat Diamond Earrings (1 carat each) to be raffled off to support our 60th reunion. Once we have 400 tickets sold (good odds 1 in 400) we will plan an event at the school to draw & identify the lucky winner. The intention of the raffle is to provide all our classmates (from 1965) to attend our 60th reunion for free. Kari Stoffer Stuhmer is leading the committee’s effort and we’ve already sold over a 100 tickets! If you’re interested in purchasing a raffle ticket (1 raffle ticket for $20) you can contact any of the following classmates:
Shari Nease Black
Joe Lanning
JoAnn Prentiss Brinkman
Mike Fleming
Lana Edwards Sheehan
Casey Comer Milne
