Baby Boomers who graduated from Storm Lake in 1965 decided not to wait for their next Class Reunion to get together.

The year 2017 was a great excuse to recognize another life milestone so those who could celebrated their “Super 70th Birthday” as a group.

Some golfed, while others toured the lake by boat, shopping in Storm Lake was a choice for some, the Iowa-Iowa State football game entertained many.

Those attending shared memories, laughed, cried, read messages from classmates who were unfortunately unable to make the Super 70th. Names of thirty were read who have passed away. They may been gone but certainly not forgotten.

Time flies and soon it will be 2020 This is another reason to get together to celebrate the special years growing up in Storm Lake.
