Algona High School Class of 1970

The AHS Class of 1970 50th Reunion will be held on Founder's Day Weekend, July 10 and 11, 2020.

Information and updates will be posted on this website,, so please check it regularly since an email may not be sent for every update.

In order to get a preliminary estimate on a number for the dinner seating, please email Julie Heckmann at or Mike Devine at if you think you (and guest) will attend. This is not a definite commitment, but will help in planning.

General Schedule: (Times to be determined later)

Evening: Get-together at Steve Mueller’s house, 401 Brookridge Dr, Algona, before the street dance downtown.

Afternoon: Tour of the old (our) high school that has been renovated into apartments.
Tour of the new (to us, anyway) high school, middle school, and Performing Fine Arts auditorium.

Evening: Dinner and a throwback VFW dance to be held at (obviously) the VFW Hall downtown.
Music will be provided by classmate Jack Dimond’s band, The Ned Feely Fun Band. They play a good variety of music of our time--not too loud and crazy, but they can still boogie. There will also be areas for people to chat and catch up while the band is playing.
