WFHS Class of 1979 Reunion

DO YOU FEEL IT?

Like salmon returning to their spawning grounds, there are times in our lives when we must obey an overwhelming urge to return to a place of our youth.  These urges peak every 10 years when the WFHS Class of 1979 announces its reunion plans.  Now, as the 40th anniversary of our graduation draws near, we pack ourselves into planes, trains, and automobiles with a common destination:
West Fargo, North Dakota!

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

WHEN:       September 20-21, 2019
WHERE:     West Fargo, North Dakota

Friday Night Social, West Fest Parade Float, West Fest Street Dance, and more!
