2019 Reunions

In July the class of 1962, the first graduating class of Lakeside Lutheran, gathered at St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church for their 57th class reunion.  A little over a dozen classmates gathered together and enjoyed viewing photos and reminiscing about their school days 60+ years ago. It is fun to hear how these Forever Warriors value their time spent at Lakeside. Check out for a great article on their reunion fun.  Thank you to Tom Baker for organizing this memorable event.

The class of 1967 decided that it would be great to get together every 2 years for a reunion.  This July they held their 52nd class reunion at Kavanaugh’s in Madison. 21 classmates attended.  What a blessing it is to reconnect with past classmates.

The class of 1969 met at Hi-Way Harry’s for their 50th class reunion on June 22.  40 Forever Warriors and 22 spouses attended this fun filled event complete with dinner and prizes.  They also generously donated $600 to Lakeside. Thank you to Ron Zwieg and his committee for organizing a time to remember.  God is good!
