41st Year Class Reunion!

Event Details


Life threw us a major curve ball in 2020. It was a year unlike any other in our lifetime. A year filled with societal issues, racial tension, political division and a global pandemic. We have all felt the impact of COVID, either directly or indirectly. Some of us had COVID and recovered. Some of us had friends and family members that weren't as lucky.

Given the challenges of the past year, we hope you're ready to step into a bit of normalcy. Check out all the super fun details and then get your RSVP in! All are encouraged to attend, but if you show up without registering, you'll pay $5 more each night. 

You have options for payment:

1. Mail an old fashioned check (yes, people still use them) directly to Deb Deal Becker, our reunion treasurer. (Address included in the registration details.)

2. Use newer technology with Venmo! You can easily send funds to @Classof1980FDSH. Then, list the names of you (and your guest) in the "What's it for?" section. When registering, select the pay by check option in your drop down, but complete your payment through Venmo. It may sound complicated, but I assure you, it's not.

3. We will also (somewhat reluctantly) accept credit card payments. There's a whopping 5.9% fee associated with each credit card payment, so we like this option the least.

Need a place to stay? We've secured discounted rates at two FD hotels. Call soon - these rooms are first come first served. Room blocks are held under FDSH Class of 1980. Both hotels offer free shuttle service.

Best Western Starlight: 515-573-7177  / $99 + tax

Brookstone Inn & Suites: 515-206-1591 / $109 + tax

Why limit happy to just an hour? Drop into Willow Ridge Golf Course for an extended happy hour!

Time:   7:00 - 10:00 PM. Music. Cocktails. Appetizers. Old friends. Don't miss it. $25 per person includes two complimentary drink tickets, appetizers and all the fun you can handle. Cash bar provided.

We hope to see your smiling faces!  Up Fort Dodgers!
