Indianola High School
Class Of 1971

Celebrating 50 Years!!  HOW is that possible?!

(We will miss those of you who cannot join us!)

Friday, October 7, 2022--Cost is on your own.

West Hill Brewing Company, 219 W Salem Ave, Indianola (close to Square)


**This is the first day of their "Oktoberfest," so it could get crowded; no reserved seating.  There are a few picnic tables out back; perhaps we can snag those?

--3:00pm:  Tap the Golden Keg - $4 draws until it's empty; all others $5.50-$6.50.  There are also two hard ciders, coffee, water, tea & pop.  They do not have ice, so we will bring some.

--5:00pm (maybe sooner):  "Hot Off the Presses" food truck.  Their usual items are a grilled cheese panini and fresh baked cookies, plus they will have German-style sausages and pretzels.  You may bring in snacks or food from other sources.

--7:00pm:  Stein holding contest, followed by live music by "Polka Police," who bill themselves as "stupid awesome polka-themed rockin' parodies, covers and originals."

Football:  If interested - 7:30pm against Carlisle.  Cost is $6.00.  Stadium is across the street from the HS.

COVID-19:  The class of '72 reunion in July turned out to be a mini "super spreader," so if you choose to wear a facemask, we won't turn you away!  You may have to drop it momentarily so we can recognize you, however!!  In all seriousness, please do what makes you most comfortable.


Extra info:

*There are NO ONE WAY STREETS in Indianola any more.

*Overton's building is heated, but we hope the weather allows us to keep the overhead door open.

*There is a bathroom in the building.  Hooray - no portable toilets!!!

*We'll have a bonfire, if wind and weather permit.


Sunday morning:  Crouse Cafe has a Brunch Buffet from 8-10:30am (or whenever the food runs out, usually between 11 and noon!) They do not take reservations, but if you have a group who'd like to sit together/nearby, call ahead & they'll see what they can do (per John!)  115 E Salem Ave; 515-961-3362


Looking forward to a great time reconnecting!  Safe travels to all!!
