Alumni Directory Information Requested
As part of the 135th Celebration, an All-School Reunion will be held Saturday, July 7th. In 2008 an alumni directory was published and now 10 years later we want to update this booklet. It will include Clinton alumni from 1909-1986, Clinton-Graceville alumni from 1987-1994 and Clinton-Graceville-Beardsley alumni from 1995-2017. Your help is needed to find current addresses for any and all of these graduates. You may also include email addresses or cell phone numbers. It would be especially helpful if there would be someone who would work on completing their own class, or even a family member that would have the needed information. Please give this information to Bonnie Stotesbery, PO Box 376, Clinton, MN 56225, email to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 320-325-5551. You may also leave it with Denese Gustafson at The Northern Star office. There is also a link to a form on the clintonmn.com website and Facebook page that you can fill out and submit. The committee is hoping to compile the updated Alumni Directory this winter and get it printed in the spring, so your help is much appreciated. Contact Bonnie Stotesbery or Denese Gustafson if you have any questions or concerns.
