Calling all chronologically gifted Ramsey grads, Class of ‘71!


Come celebrate with us, not old age, but being alive;

Not having lost touch with so many but having the ability to say hello;

Not our preconceived notions of who we once were, but who we have become.


It's an opportunity to go back in time and laugh like a teenager again and ditch all the angst, heartache, and uncertainty of what lies ahead,

––especially now that you’ve had sex.


If that doesn’t work, join us anyway for an evening of swapping stories of our ‘minor procedures.’ Whether you’re suffering from terminal old age or have denial syndrome, show us those scars!  


A fifty-one-year high school reunion? What could possibly go wrong?


October 15, 2022, is the first day of school, all over again, full of innocence and expectation, with a hint of resurrection and a yearning to belong. It’s only going to appear as if someone invited a bunch of old people to the reunion.

Be sure to check out the drop down menu at the top right for more opportunities to share and connect with your classmates!


The extravaganza will be on Saturday, October 15, at the exquisite Shoreview Best Western,

1000 Gramsie Road, Shoreview, MN, 55126

Festivities start at 6 p.m. on Saturday and will probably go past your bed-time. So, plan accordingly. It may go until maybe Tuesday, depending on how many adult beverages you consume...


We’ve spared no expense (so we’re going to charge you $50).

If you’re from out of town or out of state, thank you for the effort! But that’s not going to get you out of paying $50. 


There is no dress code. However, for your convenience, the Reunion Committee is providing a complimentary coat check service, so you can leave most pretentions at the door.


Be sure to submit a biography of your life. 

Extra credit will be awarded for making it, you know, interesting. 


Please fill out the enclosed registration form and include MONEY!

Purchase Tickets

The deadline to purchase your ticket online has passed but we will still let you in.  Bring cash, a check, or your Visa and you can purchase a ticket at the door.  Think of it like a cover charge at a really hip club. 


If you need local accommodations, a block of (20) Rooms are available at the Best Western Plus St. Paul North/Shoreview Hotel.

Call the reservation desk at 651-482-0402 and ask for the Alexander Ramsey Class Reunion 1971 block to reserve your room.  Make sure to ask for the Ramsey Class of 1971 reunion!!


"The business of life is the aquisition of memories.  In the end, that's all there is."


The Reunion Prayer

No life is complete without an embarassing moment. Please, God, let it be in my past, and not at the reunion.
