2008 (10th)     Reunion details TBD
                         Contact: Lauren Sturycz -
XoLoDesigns22@hotmail.com 
                         Sorry to report we never received any additional info on plans for
                         a Class of 2008 reunion. 
KBHSAA had attempted to contact the
                         classmate who initially said a reunion was being organized, but
                         emails went unanswered, and we had no phone number on file.
                         A search on Facebook on 09/11/2018 turned up the following Fb group:
                         https://www.facebook.com/groups/775998345903123/
                        
A reunion date had been selected, but not enough classmates had
                         signed up (they needed 50 people), and the event was apparently
                         cancelled.  We'd like to suggest 2008 classmates join the Fb group

                         in order to stay connected.
