  5. 50th Reunion Sit-Down Dinner/Short Program: Join us in the newly opened Holiday Inn Lake Winnebago Conference Center. Registration, meet and greet, cash bar with snacks provided from 4:30 to 6:00. Dinner/Short Program beginning at 6:00. Then mingle and catch up on 50 years following the program.

Our plan is to create a digital reunion booklet with a brief bio and contact information for all members of the class of 1965. The digital copy will be free (that’s a good price). If you wish to receive a hardcopy the cost will be $5.00 (that also is a good price). Once again we need your help with this. When you return your invitation registration page please take the time to send an email with this brief bio to or if you are not the “techno-weenie” type send your bio via USPS (snail) mail to Sharon Klein Steger, 21 Heritage Lane, Fond du Lac, WI 54935. If you are not planning to attend, please provide the bio and profile anyway…we really would like to how you doing and what you have done for the past 50 years. To help us with the creation of this booklet getting the information to us sooner is way better than later.
