The Class of 1961 is having a 70th Birthday Party on Friday, Oct. 4, and they need help celebrating. The public and all alumni are invited to attend.

The party will be from 8:30 p.m. to midnight, Friday, Oct. 4, at the Eagles, 120 S. Peck St., with DJ Chuck “The Knapper” Knapp (Class of 1962) playing music from the 50’s and 60’s.

Door prizes will be given away throughout the night and there will also be a silent auction full of alumni-made artwork.

Tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased in advance by contacting Mindy at 218-998-0544, Ext. 2621, or visit

Any unsold tickets will be available at the door, but space is limited, so don’t wait too long. All proceeds from the event will benefit the 544 Education Foundation.
