Class of '88 20-year????
Posted by Kevin Brown (+35) 14 years ago
Just wondering if there are still any plans in the works for a 20-year reunion? I would love to help out via e-mail, phone, internet, etc. Missed the 10, but will do everything I can to make the 20! Would love to hear from anyone out there from the best class to come out of the 80's!

I know there are some plans being discussed. Brady asked me a couple of months ago if I would help, so I know he is working on something. Brady...any progress?

Kevin, Carol, and all 1988 grads visiting this thread,,,

Brady contacted me last weekend in regards to getting plans underway. He and I will be in contact with class members via phone, email, and word of mouth, in hopes to get MANY PEOPLE to join in the planning of our 20 yr. As soon as there is an official date for a first meeting, there will be an ad in the Miles City Star, as well as something posted on this site.

So start thinking about ideas you will want to share and watch for the date of a meeting. Also, please spread the word to classmates you correspond with and let them know to check in on this website for details.

Looking forward to working with both of you again on our next reunion! Stacy

Hey Everyone, just a shout out to say that I too would be willing to give my two cents and help in planning or suggestions, via email, internet phone or whatever.....Having just attended the reunion for my husband class of 87, Jonette Doeden did alot of the work and could be a resource. I think that if we could get a website developed specifically for our class reunion it would be a great start connecting with people. I had to have someone tell me about this website. It may not be visited as frequently until the word got out. I currently live in Bismarck and make it to Miles city a few times a year. Looking forward to a great reunion. Ann Dammen Stewart

I hope that some of our more computer savvy classmates will design a website for our class. It was fun looking through the class of 87's. The one thing we missed from 87's 20 year reunion is that they did not do a reunion book because they wanted people to use the website. The only problem was that alot of people (us included) did not send pictures to the website. I thought the book we had for our 10 year was great and i hope we do it again. Let us know when the date is set so i can out in for my vacation! Kathy (Roos) Martin

Wow, it's great to see so many on this site, and no we still haven't had a planning meeting yet, but it's coming. Please feel free to email myself, or anyone you know in town who will be attending the planning meeting, or join us, that would be the best. We want as much input as possible! Yes, Jonette did alot of the work for the 87 reunion and she and I visit alot, she's been quite helpful and is a super resource. Please pass this website on to others you are in contact with, and feel free to send opinions/suggestions at any time. you can email me at [email protected] Thanks, looking forward to a terrific reunion and wouldn't it be cool if everyone was in attendance !!

we still (as far as i know) haven't had a meeting. but as i told stacy in person last week - I will also be willing to help.

it seems that if there were such a computer savvy persona with time, they would have already volunteered to help (or their staff person). Maybe we should just figure out a free hosting location... have we tried networking thru myspace or facebook or something else i haven't heard of yet?

- that's my two cents,
christina vosen ostendorf

WAIT - here's something we could use: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yahoo!_Groups
Check out the definitions... just need someone willing to setup and administrate. I guess other classes have used this for virtual reunions...

Kathy, that is a great idea I was looking at class web sites last year with envy. It would also be a resource to post minutes, addresses-updates, and changes in the itinerary.


That's what I am talking about lets roll. We need 30 people involved and it will be easy. I am personally going to be in charge of putting together a memorial video of all our lost classmates. At last count there were 5 of them.

Lori (Grassmid) Kolka, Brian Kolka, Matt Zook, Kathy Peterson and Dion Huber.

Yes, or we can change it. Yvette has told me that Thursday will not work for her. Is another night better?

Brady, sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I vote for Thursday,(the 1st) to get it off the ground. We're never going to find a date that is going to work with every single person who wants to be there, plus there will be many more meetings to come. Let's do it.

Posted by Carol Bean (+260) 14 years ago
I can make the 1st. And I will let Nicole, Lori, Ronda, and Vanessa know. See you there.

Carol Bean is the one that brought up the strippers. So I have been
ripping dollar bills in half and rolling them up all afternoon. Tell Murrey to show up, he can where his kilt if he wants.

Ok, so the first meeting was held and some decisions made... For anyone interested in helping or attending, our next 1988 class reunion meeting will be held at 7:00 pm at the Eagles. EVERYONE is invited and encouraged to join in.

Also, anyone out there who might check this website, if you have email addresses or physical addresses of classmates, please forward them ASAP to myself @ [email protected] or to any class members you see on here. Better yet, bring them with you to the next meeting!
Hope to see everyone in 2 weeks and many more people join us.

Stacey, I got about 4 more addresses coming this week. Thanks for all your leadership. I have been making phone calls because I have a lot more phone numbers than e-mail. Thanks, also to Sheri (McNurlin) Stewart for getting this ball rolling. Thanks to Beth (Petro) Oswald for jumping on board and lending her expertise to the planning of what I hope will be a fantastic 20-year reunion.

Attention- anyone from 88 who has memories or picture to share about our classmates that have departed send e-mails or mail to me.

Classmates lost:

Forgive any spelling errors.

Cory Cutting you never e-mailed me back and I am upset. However, I see someone else beat me to the punch.

Brady Stone, what was I emailing you back about? How about I just send you a note to say hi? I don't want you to feel slighted!
