Second row: Suzy (Finson) Nemec, Rick Koning, Craig Collins, Madeleine Blanz-May, Kristen Benedict, Linda (Moseley) Corfield, Jamie Klickstein, Gillian (Lucks) Kaeyer, Shelly (Sanford) Hazard, Scottie Eliassen, Beth Cameron, Lisa (Hayen) Chaffin, Bill Ho, Pam (Fielding) Goar.

The reunion party was held on Saturday, September 15. The Klicksteins received a strong response from their classmates with over 50% of the original class of 72 attending. To add to the fun, ten teachers were kind enough to come to the event. Teachers attending were: Steve Bober (English), Richard Deppe (principal), Daryl (Cutter) Greenwood (kindergarten), Jeff Levin (English), David Mayall (social studies), David Negrin (art), Rob Quaden (math), Bill Tate (5th grade), Jim Trierweiler (science) and Joe Walsh (5th grade).

It is important to note that several teachers wore "trademark" items of clothing including: clogs for Steve Bober and, of course, a bow tie for Richard Deppe. The evening was spent reminiscing about the many memories this close-knit class created together. One past event that received special attention was the eighth-grade class play: a production of Gilbert & Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance.

Of special interest is the fact that four of the reunion students live in Carlisle: Jamie and Kathryn Klickstein, Bill Ho and Lisa (Hayen) Chaffin.
