I had an opportunity this past weekend to catch up with high school classmates and friends from the DJHS class of 1978 as we celebrated our 35th reunion. Those of you who were unable to attend missed out on a wonderful time. We talked about our changing lives and enjoyed a weekend full of activities. It was a joy to hear about all the children, grandchildren and what was going on in the lives of my friends and classmates.
I would like to thank the businesses and people that helped make our weekend a success. My parents, Gary and Louise Sroufe, opened their home to myself, Ronda Buettner Jenkins, Mel Stant Line and Beth Poling Bergfeld on Thursday evening for dinner. We prepared all the prizes for our raffle/auction and enjoyed an evening of food and fun.
Thanks to classmate Penny Pimpas Gerdeman and her family who provided a room where we enjoyed a nice visit and good food after the DJHS Homecoming Game on Friday. It was great to catch up and celebrate a Wildcat victory.
Saturday, we enjoyed a fabulous evening of cocktails and dinner. The kitchen and wait staff was top notch and our meal was fantastic! A big thank you to Cammy Miller who helped set up the evening for us. Our centerpieces were beautiful fresh flower arrangements designed by Jessica Casemier Rudasill. These arrangements were delivered to local nursing home at the end of the evening for the residents to enjoy.
Sunday morning, a few of us met for coffee and brunch. The food was great.
A big thank you to my partners in crime, Ronda Buettner Jenkins and Bonnie Hohlbein, for their efforts in putting together the reunion. It truly was a joint effort and we had fun doing it.
Thank you to all the Delphos businesses, classmates and everyone who helped make our weekend one to remember.
