I was back in the Bottineau Dunseith area from July 13th until August 4th. I saw many of you and had a wonderful time.
Dennis Dubois came from Minneapolis too. We had a wonderful memorable gathering with him at Dale’s. It was scheduled for Lunch at 12:30 but most of us were still there at 6:00PM. Lots of memories were shared.

The Dunseith High School class of 1972 celebrated our 50 year reunion during the 2022 Dunseith Days. With 28 of 31 living classmates present. Due to Covid, we fell short of our 100% attendance goal.
Credited as a total team effort. The reunion kicked off Friday with a social mixer coordinated by Art Hagen. The packed house included friends and relatives. Saturday started early with a group breakfast, followed by a tour of the schools. At noon the class rode in the parade on a gigantic float, coordinated by Tom Abrahamson. The reunion ended with a formal banquet at the Dunseith golf course clubhouse, hosted by Ann Boppre Perry. The welcome speech was given by Curt Hagel. Inspirational speeches were given by Bernice Belgarde, Donna Dubois Thomas and Les Halvorson (teacher). The farewell speech was given by Gail Halvorson Schuler. Awards were presented by Loretta Neameyer Wall. Russell Robert wins the most changed award. Tom Abrahamson wins the least changed award. Curt Hagel wins the farthest traveled award (Omaha). Elementary teachers present were Minnie Flynn, Eloise Boppre and Mildred Parrill. Myra Henning Halvorson served as Historian and published a 50 year documentary of each classmate and tribute to all nine deceased classmates. Donald Malaterre served as the reunion committee chairman. “For three days, we came together, we shared our joys and sorrows, we shared memories, we bonded like a family”.
Gary Stokes Comments,
Congratulations with such a good turnout. I was back there too and would have like to have attended too, but I had to leave for my trip back to the Philippines several days before your reunion.
