Our 65th Reunion of the Marshalltown High School Class of 1953 is set for September 29, 2018.  

The details of our gathering are being worked on at the present time.  Phil Pattie is in touch with the site that used to be the Old Thunderbird restaurant where previous Marshalltown class reunions have gathered. A deposit is holding space for us.

Some of you might be aware that a relatively new event called OKTEMBERFEST is scheduled this same day. That's why we picked this date. There will be more to do and experience, with luck and the creek don't rise than at previous reunions. Should be a good time.

The OKTEMBERFEST organizing committee is working on those events. Parade, free goodies, retail outlets with sales, displays of vintage automobiles, fireworks, chariot races, who knows what. 

Already some of you have encountered limited space availability at motels, and we are getting that covered. Hampton Inn and Suites (Hilton) and Best Western Regency at the corner of Hwy 14 and 30 have space available and I have blocked ten rooms (two queen beds each) between the two. Go online, search their names with Marshalltown included, catch the pictures and then contact me ( Comfort Inn has rooms also.

Saturday there may be great festivities. Casual dress will work for any of our functions.  Feel free to contact Dave Stover (303-797-2475) cell (303-808-8722) or James Philip Pattie (480-641-9978) with questions.

It would be of great help to your administrators if you would occasionally, go to and login to your profile. Some of you have responded. Thanks. Check the Profile detail and verify the accuracy of your Address, Phone Number, and Email Address. We will get an automatic notice of your “login” and know that your contact information is accurate.
