Medicare Picnic 2016

As most of the class turned 65 in 2016, we celebrated by having a "Medicare Picnic" for our 47th class reunion.  The event was held on August 20th at the Gull Lake Inn and picnic fare was catered by Boogie BBQ.  Rain may have affected the turn out, however we were fortunate to have had access to both indoor and outdoor facilities.  Over 70 committed to attend, but the actual attendance was closer to 60.  We invited the classes of 1967,1968,1970,and 1971 to join us and had about a dozen guests from those classes.  This was the first reunion attended by several of our classmates and they expressed their desire to be here in 2019 for the 50th.  Classmates flew in from Oregon, California, Texas, and Florida.  Many drove more than six hours to attend from as far away as Canada.  It was dissappointing that more of the local classmates were unable to attend.
