    What a great reunion. Reuniting with old friends as if a day had not gone by yet alone 30 years. Nobody had change much and it was such a wonderful service and “sermon” for lack of a better word. Much love and joy was spread that day, can’t wait for 75th year.

    The 70th reunion was wonderful. It was very nice to see everyone and to catch up with classmates from the 80’s. Seeing my old alma mater brought back great memories
    and a feeling of pride to be a part of NDHS.
