Warm greetings from Texas!

The 11th annual reunion was held in Grapevine, Texas, at the Gaylord Texan Resort from July 17-20. Attendees were: Chuck and Marcia Gheldof, Larry and Sue James, Earl and Alice Kinslow, Wayne and Julie Molner, John and Debby Patterson, Bruce and Jeanne Reidenbach, Steve and Linda VanDerSluis, Art and Sherrie White, Dennis and Jeannie Wood, and David and LuAnn Worthman. John and Debby's son, Jeff, and his girlfriend, Renee, joined the group for dinner Saturday evening! The group voted to begin holding reunions every other year on the even years. The next reunion will be held the 3rd week of July, 2010, in Reno, Nevada. Linda and Steve VanDerSluis will plan and host the event. Anyone interested in planning and/or hosting the reunion in 2012?
