Laura reported that they are getting ready to send some Beacons to Newspapers.com. Caitlin bought boxes to ship one decade at a time, starting with the newer ones to see how it goes.

Kristie reported that there are plans to have an all-school reunion on Aug. 31 the Saturday before Labor Day. We might be able to get our information out at that time.

The Town Hall Talk and Tours held Wednesday Sept 12 was small but successful. The planning was short notice and Kim Overhold handled it well. Sue, Marge helped with tours etc. Tom Buxmann, Tammy Boehler and Ruth Brunner helped also. They plan to do it again next year.

Octoberfest had over 1000 people this year. Only complaint heard was no German music!! It has already been booked for next year😊

Respectfully
