Class of 1974 Summer 2019 Letter

Summer 2019

Dear Luther Class of 1974,

Save The Date! We will celebrate our 45-year reunion from Luther College the weekend of October 4-6, 2019. We will have a wonderful time reminiscing and catching up on our lives since Luther, and we hope to have a huge turnout for this special event.

The Class of 1974 will celebrate on Saturday, October 5, at the South Winneshiek Golf and Country Club in Calmar. We have planned a reception at 5:30 p.m., followed by a dinner at 6:30 p.m.  Cost per person will be $30 and should be paid in advance when reservations are made. A reservation form is included with this letter.  Reservations can also be made online at

The schedule of Homecoming events can also be found at this link.  Included in those events is the Distinguished Service Awards presentation at the Alumni Dinner on Friday, October 4, in the Dahl Centennial Union Cafeteria. Classmate Steve Berry has been selected to receive the Distinguished Service Award from the college this year.  Also, classmate Jane (Greene) Hildebrand will be inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame which will take place before our reunion celebration, starting at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 5, in the Noble Recital Hall.  We would encourage you to celebrate these very special honors with Steve and Jane.

Luther’s new President-elect Jenifer K. Ward will stop by early in the evening to bring greetings from the college. Her inauguration has been scheduled for November 1-2, 2019.

If you want to connect with Luther friends but have lost touch, remember that you can easily use Please come enjoy the beautiful campus of Luther as well as the beautiful surroundings. Save time for a visit to one of Decorah’s coffee shops (Java Johns, Impact Coffee, Magpie) or breweries (Toppling Goliath and Pulpit Rock Brewing). Of course, you also don’t want to miss a trip to Dunning’s Spring, Mabe’s, the Whippy Dip, or other downtown establishments or rural retreats.

We look forward to seeing many of you at Homecoming 2019.
