Event Details

Ames High School Class of 1981 40th Reunion: Reunite, Reconnect--Rescheduled!
Friday June 24, 2022 and Saturday June 25, 2022
Please register for all events you plan to attend--even the free ones so we can get an accurate count of classmates who will be there. 
Earlybird registration has ended, but we still have some room - price has increased to $65 for dinner. 

Celebrate with your classmates Saturday evening, JUNE 25 at Gateway Hotel & Conference Center
A special evening to Reunite and Reconnect begins with a cash bar with your 1981 high school classmates, their guests and some of our teachers who we've invited. It will be held in the beautiful setting of the Gateway hotel, 2100 Green Hills Dr, Ames, IA 50014. Please choose your meal entree listed below by May 15. If no choice is made, you will get the Chardonnay Chicken entree.

Event begins with a cash bar at 6 p.m. and dinner at 7:30 p.m

There will be no loud entertainment but plenty of time to talk and catch up with your classmates.

As an added bonus, we’ve invited Ames High teachers and staff from our school years to join us for dinner that evening if they wish. We are comping their meal as small token of our appreciation for all they did for us in high school. Please consider a donation.

Here's what else is happening during our 40th Reunion weekend:

Friday Night June 24 Music and Drinks
Enjoy some music at Ames on the Half Shell Bandshell Park (Durham Bandshell), 6th and Duff, Downtown Ames starting at 5 p.m. and then join your classmates who will be gathering at 7 p.m. at Torrent Brewing Company, 504 Burnett Ave, Ames, IA 50010. Free, buy your own drinks/food

Note: Ames on the Half Shell is a JayCee event and not organized by our class. There is a nominal admission fee ($5) to enter the Beer Garden. It is a family friendly event with food trucks, beverages and live music. Our Torrent Brewing event is an informal gathering within the establishment with other patrons. Tables and seating may be limited as we have not reserved the brewery and it will be open to the public that night.

We committed to provide Torrent an estimate of attendance so they can properly staff for the night. Please register at the top of the page to help us estimate counts. Again, we are not charging for this event as it’s buy-your-own, but we want to know who’s coming. Order you 40th Class Reunion T-Shirt below and we'll be handing them out at Torrent and again during our Saturday dinner at Gateway.

This 37-acre park brings county, city, university, and state partners together to illustrate synergies between commercial development, quality of life improvements, and natural resource conservation. The main entrance is located off South University Boulevard, just one mile south of the Gateway Hotel and next to the Economic Development Core Facility. Ample partking is available or you can walk from the hotel if you desire. Read more.  This is a free event, but please register so we may have a count.
