Grant High School class of 1970

Grant Class of 1970 & 1971 50+ Reunion!

We're calling it our 50+ reunion. The virus canceled our 50th reunion which was planned for August of 2020. The reunion committee waited to see how things went with the virus. - By the time things improved enough to move forward, there wasn't enough time to hold our reunion in 2021. During the shutdown, we heard from many classmates that our 50th reunion should more special than the usual Maravella's. - We hope the following venue fills everyone's request and we can't wait to see every body. The class of 1971 50th reunion also was disrupted by the virus so we are combining the two classes for this special reunion.

The Ice Breaker.
Friday, September 9th

Our Ice Breaker is at Raymond's on Johnsburg Rd. in Johnsburg. It will start at 6:30 pm. There is a concession stand for food and a cash bar for drinks. Classes of 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971, and 1972 are invited to the Ice Breaker so spread the word. There is no charge to attend the Ice Breaker!

Our 50+ Reunion Dinner.
Saturday, September 10th.

Our 50+ Reunion will be memorable! It's going to be held outdoors, under tent, just feet away from the shore of Lake Geneva at Abbey Springs Resort. The tent has clear sides and heat if needed.
