By tradition we held a class reunion every five years. Because of a turn of events we did not have one in 2004.
At All School reunion in 2005 we decided to make up for it by having an "Odd Year Reunion" the next year, 2006.
Thus we held a 47th, Odd Year, Reunion on Saturday, June 24, 2006, at the Best Western Victorian Inn, Hutchinson, MN.

3rd, 4th, & 5th Grades at Lake Lillian Elementary School
Our classmates from Lake Lillian started first grade in Lake Lillian which operated a combined classroom school
In addition there were many of classmates from the rural Lake Lillian area who attended one room
school houses until the seventh grade at which time they came to Bird Island.
For all of them it was a big transition to a "large school" system with all sorts of extra-curricular
activities like band, chorus, football and basketball teams, school paper, FAA, and school plays.
