50 Year Reunion


St. Cloud Tech Class of '65- Fifty (Yes 50!) Year Reunion (Man, 50 years flies by quickly!)

Well, here we are, fifty years down the road. It is hard to believe that five decades have passed since we all walked the hallowed halls of St. Cloud Tech. Lots of water over the dam, under the bridge or whatever. Many things have changed in all of our lives, some good-some not so good. We are now all experienced (which is a nice way to say "old as hell!") We are not too old to get together with Class of '65 classmates, some of whom have stayed close friends and some who are just old friends. Some have passed on and will be talked about, recalling fond memories.

WELL, IT'S PARTYTIME! Time to get together with people we haven't seen for a long time. We are long past the vanity of "I don't look very good" (We all look older!) or the "one up" of who was more successful. We are all the same and it will be great to catch up on people's lives. The reunion committee has gone to great lengths to provide a weekend that we hope will meet with the approval of all. Here are the details:
