Class of '76 celebrates 40 years
September 29, 2016
Homecoming weekend wouldn’t be complete without a reunion, and this year the class of 1976 celebrated its 40th. “For us being the first class that went four years at Niwot, it’s kind of a big thing,” reunion coordinator Terri Ward said.
The reunion consisted of a happy hour at Bootstrap Brewery in Niwot on Friday, which included pint glasses printed with a cougar logo from the 70s. In addition, more than 50 members of the Class of ‘76 and their spouses enjoyed a dinner together at Fox Hill Country Club in Longmont on Saturday evening.
“Forty has no real expectations. It’s just to reconnect,” Ward said when asked how this year’s reunion differed from previous events. “We’re all at a different stage of life now, taking care of our parents. I know there’s a lot of people I haven’t seen since 10 or 20, so it will be fun.”
