The Banquet committee has been working diligently over the past several months to make this year a memorable one. Special recognition will be given to the class years celebrating milestones. Namely, Classes 1976, 1986, 1996 and 2006.

Due to additional cost incurred when additional placement is requested, the price will increase at the door to $110.00. Therefore, please take advantage of purchasing your ticket early so that we can plan appropriately.
