AHS class of 1985 20 Year reunion was held July 8-10, 2005!!

1985 20-year class reunion photos from July 9th and 10th 2005

Ames High Class of 1985 20 Year Reunion was held the weekend of July 8-10, 2005. The plans included an informal get-together at the Old Main Brewery on Main Street on Friday night, a golf outing at the Coldwater Golf Links on South 16th Street on Saturday morning, a dinner and reception at the Coldwater outdoor golf pavilion on Saturday night and a family picnic at Moore Memorial Park on Sunday.

Yahoo Groups Image http://groups.yahoo.com/group/AmesHigh1985
We have setup a Yahoo Group called AmesHigh1985. Several folks have now signed up and we would like to get everyone subscribed to this. It is a great way to keep up to date, share pictures, etc. We hope that this group continues on past the reunion, and will allow everyone to stay in touch continually (instead of every 10 years!). To join the group send an email to A m e s H i g h 1 9 8 5 - o w n e r ( a t ) y a h o o g r o u p s . c o m ( replace (at) with @ ) and you will get subscribed. The face behind the group owner is Devika Seecharran Levy, so please thank her for setting this group up!

Golf Outing!
We are forming 4-person teams to have fun in a best shot golf tourney on Saturday. A best shot tourney means that you only use the best shot of the group, and the entire 4-some will hit their next shot from that same location. The group will continue to use only the best shot all the way down the fairway and on the green. This means that you only need one of the group to get off a decent shot each time – so the odds are with you! So even if you cannot golf, come join the fun! There will be prizes of all kinds – even for the teams that did not do so well! So sign up and “volunteer” 3 of your old classmates, spouses, etc and let us know! (contact Matt Carney c a r n e y ( a t ) u g s . c o m ( replace (at) with @ ) for more information regarding the golf outing).



Informational postcards and packets have been mailed out already, and you should have received it by now. If you have not received one, then yours likely was sent to an old or outdated address. If so, please contact Amy Healey at a m y k h e a l e y ( a t ) h o t m a i l (dot) c o m ( replace (at) with @ ) for more information.
