In less than two months we’ll be getting together for our 40th Class Reunion!!!!

Did you receive your post card giving you the opportunity to sign up for our weekend activities yet?  If you haven’t signed up yet, included is a registration form you may mail in with your information.  Shortly, if you’ve shared your email address with Gustavus, you will also receive a link to the online registration form.  Naturally, we’d like to see everyone at all of the Friday and Saturday events, but you can pick and choose as your schedule permits.  One thing is for sure we’re counting on having a great turnout for our 40th Reunion weekend October 3 and 4!

The college has provided our class with its own web page and you can visit any time to see the complete list of the weekend activities and see a list of people that are attending.  Here is the “road map” to follow to get into our site:, click on Alumni news and sign in to access our page.  The college has sent all of us an “I’m a Gustie” sign in card with your username and password and you’ll need that to get to our page.  If by chance you’ve misplaced yours, call the alumni office at:  1-800-487-8437.  After signing in, go to Class Connections 1968 and the Class of 1968 page will come up.  On that home page you can scroll to “who’s attending” and see our classmates that have made their plans to attend.

So far, we have 20 classmates committed to attend:  Kathy Eaton Asted, Laurel Beedon, Barb Rinehart Cameron, Angie Kuper Christmann, Jerry Del Pino, Donna Widstrom Dunn, Barb Veker Elnes, Cheryl Hamer Hauswirth, Ingrid Wilson Molde, John and Kris (Lundberg) Moorhead, Paula Navarro, Dawn Nelson, Helen Nilsen, Jerry Okerman, Karen (Monson) and Dick Peterson, Val Jungck Sanders, JanaLee Sponberg and Carl Zaar.  This is a good start, but we need your name on this list so please sign up and get your registration in!

Just a friendly reminder for those who would like to spend a night(s) at the Airport Marriott― you’ll need to contact the hotel directly and ask for the 40th Gustavus Reunion special rate.  The phone number to call is:  952-854-7441 and our block of rooms will be held up until two weeks before the event.

The event is only two short months away and it’s time to make YOUR plans!  There’s also still time to be included in the class gift to celebrate our 40th―we hope you will participate in any way that you are able with a gift to Gustavus by October 4.  We’d love to see 50% of our class raise $100,000!  We’re almost there―we’re at 42% with $76,305 raised in gifts and pledges!  Thank you to everyone who’s already participated!

We’re looking forward to seeing you all in Minneapolis and St. Peter on October 3 and 4!!!!

Your 1968 Reunion Committee
