The Dalles Class of 1965 held its 40-Year Reunion on July 29 & 30, 2005 in The Dalles, Oregon. Friday night’s opener was an informal social at the Windseeker Restaurant on the banks over looking the Columbia River. Saturday morning, several classmates participated in the Jim Powell Memorial Walk and later that night more enjoyed a more formal dinner and slide show at the Discovery Center Museum. Separate class events were held by St. Mary’s and Wahtonka classmates.
Below is a list of those classmates that had their picture taken at Saturday night’s dinner at the Discovery Center. Others attended Friday night’s activity and still others arrived at the Discovery Center after the picture and will be listed later.

An estimated 90 classmates and 40 friends and teachers attended these events.
In a survey completed by 45 Saturday-night participants, 33% felt everything went well with the reunion and especially the facilities. Even though most respondents would not change anything several did comment on the choice of food might be different. Most also felt that e-mail and the Internet would be the best way to increase communication with members of the class.
As can be seen by these two charts, most residents of the Class and reunion attendees were from Oregon and either The Dalles or the Portland area.
