Homecoming Weekend: October 4-5, 2019

On Friday night, check in at the alumni table next to the Johnson Field entrance and get one free admittance to the game. The tailgate party starts at 6:15pm and the Chargers take the field at 7pm.

The 1994 football team that went to State will be recognized during halftime. All players and coaches are invited back! Please RSVP to Kristin Matzke.

The annual post-game social follows at the New Ulm Community Center just down the block. This free social is open to all alumni, friends, parents, and supporters. Enjoy complimentary snacks and adult beverages, plus entertaining games and exciting door prizes.

Then on Saturday, all alumni and their guests are invited to the third Golf Extravaganza at Minneopa Golf Club in Mankato. This $25 event gets you nine holes of glow-in-the-dark golf, a drink ticket, and dinner. Only 28 spots are available; email Kristin Matzke to reserve yours!

Note: Postcards were mailed to all alumni the week following Labor Day with details about Homecoming Weekend. If you did not receive one, MVL does not have your current mailing address. Please email Kristin Matzke to update that information.

Class Reunions

If you are in charge of your class reunion, please email Kristin Matzke with the details. She will then post the information here and on the Alumni Facebook Group. Kristin can also help with classmate lists. Additionally, if you want assistance organizing the event (for example, location coordination), feel free to email Val Holzhueter.

Class of 2009: October 5, 2019

Allison (Nass) Spaude is coordinating a 10-year reunion for the Class of 2009. Classmates may arrive at the Krohn Farm any time after 4:00 P.M. and stay until the bonfire in the evening. All significant others and children are invited and encouraged to come!

What you can bring:

  • A dish or some food to share
  • A cooler with your choice of beverage
  • Lawn chairs and/or lawn games if you have them

If you would like to bring meat, there will be a grill; but if there is enough interest, the Krohns may make their classic pork chops. While there is no formal cost for the event, it is recommended to bring $10/adult to thank the Krohns for hosting.
