Class Reunions

Class of 1976

Note change in date – reunion has been moved from October to July 2016

Members of the Penn High School Class of 1976 are finalizing plans for their upcom­ing 40-year reunion scheduled for 2016. Plans call for an event on Friday, July 29 and Saturday, July 30, 2016. An informal get-together will take place at Between the Buns in Osceola on Friday night, July 29. The garden area of the restaurant has been reserved for the Class of 1976 starting at 6:30 p.m. and will be available until midnight.

The main event will take place on Satur­day, July 30 at the same location we held our 35-year reunion. Those who attended the 35-year reunion enjoyed The Lodge at Lakeville so much that we are having an “encore presen­tation” in 2016. Saturday’s casual get-together begins at 4 p.m. starting with a catered BBQ dinner. As evening falls we will have a bonfire complete with S’mores. Those attending in 2011 had such a great time that we hope more show up for the 40-year!

Classmates are encouraged to vis­it the Class of 76’s Facebook page, which will have all of the most up-to-date information on events being planned for the upcoming reunion. Address chang­es or information on missing classmates can also be shared through the Facebook page.
