Less than 60 days to the Reunion!!

Hey Class of ’88!

The Reunion is just around the corner and your committee is busy getting everything ready. However, we want to ask for your help on a few things….

1- For any of you that are here locally, we want to enlist your help with a fun “contact” night. We want to have a calling party and send out notes to those we haven’t heard from. You DO NOT have to be attending the Reunion to help us out this night!! It would be a fun night with lots of friends and food. Please post a comment if you are interested! The meeting place will probably be at a committee members home in the Mesa/Gilbert area.

2- WE NEED PHOTOS- both past and present! Whether you are coming to the Reunion or not!! We love family photos, old MHS photos with classmates, whatever you’d like to send. The best way is to email them to Wende Worthen Foster at

** Or email her for her smail mail address!

We would like to get them ASAP as we are starting to put together a slide show for our Reunion.

3- Any bun-buns out there want to reunite for one last performance the night of the Reunion??

4- If you are attending the Reunion please register ASAP. If you are only interested in attending the family picnic, we will have more information coming very soon on that. Please continue to check in for more updates.

We have more information and will be updating everything very soon. Talk to your friends- the ones you are still in contact with and the ones you’re not. The more of you that come, the better the reunion will be. We look forward to seeing you all in October!
