     Bev Vilhauer (1977) and Esther Maier (faculty) greeted the alumni as they were registering. Mary Wald (1994) & Denise (Rau) Piatz (1994) hosted the event.  Kathy (Rieger) Welder (1965), Audrey (Just) Boschee (1950) and Gladys Brosy served refreshments.  A meat & cheese tray was donated by Stan’s Super Valu, Darren Deile (1985) owner.  Larry Wald (1976) emceed the event and Bev Vilhauer provided the invocation and conducted the memorial service. 

     Dawn (Blinsky) Dallman (1974) served a delicious meal of strudels with roast beef. Each table was adorned with cupcakes made by Melissa (Kaseman) Wolf (1995). Members of the South Border Mustangs Volleyball team assisted as table waiters and cleanup helpers.
