The dates for our 50th year class reunion are 18 and 19 September 2015, the same weekend as Rocky’s homecoming. The Friday and Saturday get togethers will be at the Holiday Inn downtown Rock Island where a block of rooms is being held for the Rock Island High Class of 1965 at a rate of $92 per night. Other activities are being planned including a tour of the high school on Saturday. More details will be provided soon.
Much like what was posted for football, here are records taken from the Winter Program which includes both boys and girls basketball with a small recognition for girls bowling.
Here are some of the class pictures that hung in the hallways of old Audubon Grade School. They were rescued before its demolition in 2014.

Here are some things from the fall football program that I thought people would find interesting. Much of this football history was gathered by former school board president/booster club member, Dick Black. Click below for viewing.
Just in the planning stages but the Class of 1995 will celebrate their 20th next summer. Contact Amy Huber for details.
