 Jubilee 2020 Cancelled


The Class of 99 at Jubilee 2019: Jason and Felicia Gehrig, Debbie Northern, Chanda Chung and Rachel Smith Chung (not pictured Ellen Dabagian)

Jubilee Weekend


Jubilee weekend was originally scheduled July 31-August 2 but with COVID 19, we had to cancel the in person celebration.  However, two of the Jubilee Classes met virtually.  The Class of 1995 met Thursday, July 30 and the Class of 1990 met August 2.  Many thanks to class agents Linda Michon (1990) and Marty Roers (1995) for pulling the virtual reunions together.  Also, thanks to Vicki Armour-Hileman for facilitating the Class of 1990 gathering.

The Classes of 2005 and 1985 are working on virtual events. 

We would like to recognize the current missioners who are celebrating Jubilee anniversaries.  Joe Loney (Bolivia) and Joanne Miya (Tanzania) are celebrating their 25th reunion (1995) and Judy Walter (Tanzania) is celebrating her 10th anniversary (2010).

Also, we hold in our hearts those members of the Jubilee classes who have died.
