Plans are still underway, but it sounds like it will be similar to our 60th from last year--breakfast, then an informal gathering on the South side of Yaquina Bay, in the Port of Newport's building where we met last year.  

Thanks to John Owen and Frank & Beth Fogarty & others for doing the planning for this event.

We started having monthly class breakfasts 22 years ago, in February 2002!  That was when a small group gathered in Salem area to begin working on trying to locate all the class members, prior to our 40th reunion that was scheduled for the following year!  During the first 19 years, we only missed 3 times--once when we scheduled the breakfast in central Oregon & no one showed up, and two other times when we cancelled the event due to severe weather limitations!   Then, in March 2020, Covid-19 shut us down for two long years, until March 2022.

Monthly Breakfasts resumed in April, 2022, but going forward they will probably be quarterly instead of monthly.



Did you know?  Our site has now been viewed more than 90,000 times! 

This site has had 93,594 total  visits since we started it in November 2013!




To make it easier for planning our calendars:

The idea is to make the breakfast sites reachable for as many classmates as possible!

Do YOU have other ideas?  Other locations where you would like to meet for breakfast?  In the past we have tried the Eugene area a few times, but the turnout there was usually low.  We have never met in Corvallis, so that is another possibility.    Would really like to hear your ideas!

Please contact us at and let us hear your ideas!
