Class of 1969 Summer 2019 Letter

Summer 2019

Hello, Classmates!

I just came in from picking the beautiful pink and red peonies from our yard which bloom once a year. They will be greatly enjoyed for a week and then they will be gone to wait for next year.

Unlike peonies, my memories and thoughts of Luther are just part of who I have become. I hold close the wonderful memories, knowledge and friendships which continue to be part of me as I proceed through life.  

Come to Luther this Homecoming, October 4th through the 6th, to celebrate 50 years since graduating from Luther. Richard Staff will receive the Distinguished Service Award and Dale Jensen will be inducted into the Luther Athletic Hall of Fame.   

Learn what Richard and Dale have done in their lives since Luther and continue to do for the world around us. Ask others what they have done and continue to do to change and nurture lives. I make Quilts of Valor. That is my thing. Ask me. I will tell you about it.

Lots of things will be happening on campus that weekend; special events for the class of ’69.  All of that information is included in your reunion packet. There will be many opportunities to be with friends and catch up with those with whom we have lost contact. Wouldn’t it be great if everyone could be there! Phone calls and mailings have been made, inviting all ’69 grads. Still, reach out to your friends and invite them back. It helps so much to look forward to meeting up with friends from our days at Luther. Mabe’s Pizza and Ronnie’s rolls are as good as ever!

If housing is needed, the Alumni Office can help with that: Judy Riha, 563-387-1524 or [email protected].

As we sing “To Luther” we will remember those friends who have died and entered eternal life.  We will do so with gratitude for this community of faith and learning that nourished our young minds and encouraged us to live lives of service. 

Soli Deo Gloria.
