Six Grads from the Class of 75 went to Jamaica and celebrated their 40th school reunion. Teri Moulton, Dave Jorgensen, Lori Begarek (Nail) with husband Don, Melvin Nielsen ( Wendy), Jack Johansen (Glenda), Wendy Newton (Armstrong) husband Doug. Everyone agreed that our favorite adventure was out into the crystal clear ocean scuba diving and snorkeling amongst the coral, seeing many brightly colored fish, starfish, sea urchins, stingrays and even an octopus. Other activities some of us did were sailing, parasailing, zip-lining, river cruise, trip to Appleton Rum Factory, Margaritaville, Ricks Cafe, catamaran cruise, shopping, beach party, and enjoying the Jamaican evening entertainment on stage. Weather was fantastic, food was awesome, and drinks cold.

I know it seems like we may be saying this over and over again, but we want to make sure everyone gets their story in so we can make it up to date for everyone. Our e-mail address is email@example.com. Please keep sending your story in….
