Thanks to all for a successful reunion

On August 11, 2007, the North Kingstown High School Class of 1997 celebrated its tenth reunion. Over 70 guests gathered to enjoy a picnic at Fort Wetherill State Park in Jamestown, followed by an evening cocktail reception at Habourside Grill in East Greenwich.

We would like to thank the following local businesses for donating items to our raffle, the proceeds from which will be used to establish an NKHS Class of 1997 scholarship fund: American Bay Outfitters; Bay Leaves Restaurant and Bistro; Beach Rose Cafe; Brickley's Ice Cream and Cakes; E & J's Restaurant; Flowers by Burt & Peg; G. Willakers Country Store; Jitter's Cafe; J.W. Graham; Newport Creamery; Tavern by the Sea; Wickford Gourmet; and Wickford Lumber.

In addition, several of our fellow alums showcased their talents by making the following donations to the raffle: Richard Boucher of Acoustic Vibrations for a free DJ'd event; Emily DaSilva, D.D.S. for her "Healthy Smiles" basket; Richard Soule of Chicago Pizza for a gift certifi- cate; and Elisabeth (Baker) Swain of Little Miss Izzy for her "Baby Bits" basket.

We would especially like to thank the following alums who donated their time and services to the event: Richard and Shannon (Downey) Boucher of A Delicate Image for photographing the picnic, and Julie (Drescher) Michaels of Allie's Donuts for providing a delectable donut cake for the party.

Special thanks to Erin (Petrella) Montagano and Andrew Deslaurier for their skill with streamers, and to Shawn Edge for manning the grill.

Most importantly, we would like to thank our fellow classmates, without whom there would not have been a reunion. It was a pleasure to reconnect with all of you and learn what our fellow Skippers have been doing over the course of these ten eventful years. Please continue to visit our class web site at http://www.classreport. org/usa/ri/north%5Fkingstown/ nkhs/1997/ so that we can plan additional events, and so that we may share in your stories.
