As they fill, the Marriott will add 10 more, as needed. Phone The Marriott, 608-782-1000 and tell them the reservation will be under the Aquinas 1971 Class Reunion group.

Also, remember Dan Marcou's picture project. Dan has created a PowerPoint presentation for the reunion. He has scanned all our senior pictures from the '71 Aquin. Each slide will have that photo and your name. If you choose, you can add other personal photos, personal info or greetings. You decide. To add to your slide, email Dan at: All reunion attendees will receive a thumb drive of Dan's presentation.

We are looking for volunteers to organize and coordinate activities. Such as:

La Crosse Queen Cruise -
Grand Dad Bluff visit
Aquinas School Tour
Segway city tour -
Trolley city tour -

If there is another local site or event you'd like to visit, put a group together. You can use the Grade School Forum or go through the class web site to get it organized.
