It's All Over!

The reunion was great! Thanks to all those who came! For those of you who couldn't make it, you were missed! The food was great. The weather was perfect. We owe a BIG thank you to Olson's Garden Shoppe. It was the perfect location. (They were so generous and didn't charge us.)

We also need to thank Lisa Morrison Montague for the yummy chocolates and A Viking's Feast for the delicious food. Thanks Kari and Steph for your help with the games! A big thanks also to Marcie, Monica and Michelle for the cute table of memorabilia!

We began the night with the pasta bar that had about 30 different options to add and then was cooked right in front us. It was followed by some delicious desserts. Everyone seemed to love the chocolate cake and the carrot cake. After eating we played a Payson trivia game provided by Stephanie and then gave out a few awards. The following awards were given;

Jeremy Ewell, for coming the furthest (all the way from Pennsylvania!)
Lena Kroeber Barney, for having the oldest child (15 and a half!)
Darryl Holdaway, for losing the most hair AND having the newest baby (7 weeks)
Marcie Jolley Swenson, for having the most educations (she has several degrees and is currently in law school)
Janene Christensen Lay, Lena Kroeber Barney and Nellyn Garlick Burke, for having the most kids (they each have 5)

After the games we all just stayed and visited. Mark Jones planned an after party out at his home and many of the classmates joined him.

The Student Body Officers will be in charge of the next reunion. We will be passing everything on to them. They will keep the blog, facebook and e-mail account so stay in touch! See you in 5 years!

Extended RSVP date

If you go back a couple of posts you will see a big list of classmates that have not yet been contacted. We have found many off the list and are still looking for the rest. For this reason we are extending the deadline to pay for the class reunion dinner until Wednesday, Sept. 2nd. For this dinner you must pay in advance. At the last 2 reunions those in charge have been left paying a lot of their own money. We think you'll understand that we want to avoid this! You can pay here on the blog or e-mail Jamie at and she will e-mail you her home address and you can send her a check. If sending a check it must be mailed no later than Wednesday, Aug. 26th. We are giving you one more payment option for those that still live locally. You can drop off a check to Jamie's mom, Chris, at Olson's Garden Shop.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone. We currently have classmates coming from Pennsylvania, Virginia, Wyoming, Idaho, Arizona, California and Nevada! It's going to be a great time!

It's getting closer!

Before we know it our reunion will be here! We have less than 3 months to go! We recently sent out our second e-mail with more details about the upcoming reunion. Again, if you did not receive it please contact us! We have heard back from many and are looking forward to hearing from everyone. Some have already said they will be unable to come. Tamra Farr sent an e-mail, unfortunately, she will not be able make it. She wishes everyone well. She lives in the greater Seattle area with her husband and 2 children. We will miss her at the reunion.

Dinner must be paid for in advance. You can pay online using the PayPal button on top right-hand side of the blog. Tickets are $21 per person. If you are bringing someone with you, make sure to purchase two tickets. When you purchase the tickets make sure to include your name (maiden name if you are married and have a new name) and the name(s) of any other individuals for whom you are purchasing tickets. This can be done at checkout. There is an option to include notes for the can put your name there. Make sure to print a copy of the receipt. It will serve as your ticket for dinner. Otherwise, the caterer will have no way to know if you have paid (**the caterer will not be accepting payment on the night of the reunion).

If you want to save a dollar, you can mail a check to Jamie Olson Rolfe. Email her at to get her address. Instead of sending you an actual ticket, she will make a list of people who have sent her money.

All tickets must be purchased by August 21!! This is to ensure the caterer knows how many plates to prepare.

We are getting ready to send out our 2nd e-mail. If you didn't get the 1st please e-mail us with your info! We heard back from a lot of you and think the reunion will be a hit! Unfortunately, some have already said they will be unable to attend. One of them is Mike Ashton. He did update us on his life. He is living in a small town near Lake Tahoe and works at the local high school. He recently earned his Masters degree through the University of Nevada, Reno. He has 3 children, a son age 8, a daughter age 6 and another son age 2. It was great to hear from him and we'll all miss him at the reunion!

Wow, Who Knew!

Who knew it was so hard to send out a mass e-mail. I guess they are trying to protect us from all the spammers out there (which I totally appreciate), but come on! Does it really have to be impossible to send an e-mail out to more than 9 people at a time???? We ended up having to change our e-mail address yet again, because the Gmail account for some reason wouldn't send the message out at all. The new address is Sorry for the confusion and change. I am sure there was a way to get it to work, but since I am computer illiterate, it was easier to just open a new account.
So, this time we really did send an e-mail out. We have heard back form several of you, so we know that it did go out. If you didn't receive it please let us know so we can get your correct e-mail address. We had a list from the last reunion that had e-mails on it, but a lot of the addresses are not correct. If you didn't get the e-mail you can either leave a comment on here with your correct address, or you can leave an e-mail at
Thanks to all who have responded, and for all your offers to help. We will let you know what we need help with as it gets closer.

Class E-mail has changed

We have received e-mails from several of you saying that you didn't get the e-mail that got sent out. We think it may have been the server we were using, so we have changed our e-mail address to Please make note of this change, and we are working on sending out the same e-mail again. Thanks for letting us know!
