R-S Class of 1974 holds 40th reunion

The Roland-Story Class of 1974 gathered for their 40th class reunion August 7-9, 2014. They started out their reunion with a “Girls Night Out”, hosted by LuAnn (Larson) Johnson, on Thursday, Aug. 7th. On Friday night, Aug. 8 an informal gathering was hosted by Kevin Watson. Saturday morning, Aug. 9, a golf tournament at River Bend Golf course took place for anyone who was interested. There were 12 golfers and a few “caddies” making sure rules were followed, and no one went thirsty (okay…maybe no rules). Saturday night a dinner was held at the Quality Inn & Suites in Ames, IA. It was a wonderful turn-out for “40 years later” and everyone seemed to have a great time!
