The Class of 1968 will meet at 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16, at Gamper's Restaurant in Moose Lake. Janie Groth Huhta is handling the Class of '68 and taking all the reservations for Gamper's. Coordinators are Edie Aho Houck and Luana Vigness Walker for the Class of '67.

A booklet will be sent to every classmate of both classes.

Dennis Lowry, former resident of Wright and 1960 Cromwell-Wright graduate, writes: "I have never produced a lyric video before, so I wanted you to be among the first to see and hear it. If you go to You Tube and type God Wants to Bless America Again, it should come up. Otherwise, this link in your browser search window should locate it: I am 'praying big' and shooting for over one million views over the next year. I believe that American Christians really need to hear this message. So, if you like it, please recommend it to your friends you think might want to see it. And ask them to pass it on if they like it. Everything hinges on sharing or pass-along recommendations."

Mary Novotny Cicha of Glenn Flora, Wis. writes: "My brother John Novotny died April 19, 2017 at the age of 84. He was buried at Camp Ripley, Minn., on April 25, 2017."
