55th Reunion 8/2/19

Event Details

Our MRHS 55th reunion was held August 2-4, 2019--at the DoubleTree Suites by Hilton in Southcenter. 100 classmates and guests attended Friday night, 85 Saturday night, and 32 on Sunday--for a total of 111! We had 174 at our 40th and 181 at our 50th.  Experts said we should only expect 50% of that at 5-year reunions, so we beat that handily. Everyone said it was a blast! Send me your feedback and suggestions and I'll make sure it gets addressed in our Debrief meeting on August 26th. Let me know if you'd like to attend. Polly Kaiser and Liana Linder will be posting photos over the next few days. See Who Showed Up below. And don't forget to keep your Classmate Profile up to date so we can keep in touch about the 56th and beyond--details at the bottom of the Home Page. 


Who we are: Marcy Dreyer took a survey Friday night, which revealed the following: we are a Starbucks/wine drinking bunch who would rather take cruises than work in our yards--we get our news from both sides of the aisle (Fox & MSNBC)--we came to the reunion to see friends and get hugs while monitoring our cell phones--in school our favorite place to grab a kiss was in the car, now it's in bed or in front of the fireplace.
