Calling all Class of ’76 Kangs

We are having our 40th Reunion October 1st.  We can’t believe it has been that long either.

We have planned a casual evening at Matthews Cellars Winery in Woodinville.  The cost is $50.00 and covers a delicious meal catered by Armadillo Barbeque, non-alcoholic drinks by Talking Rain, and a DJ playing tunes from our era.  No-host bar will be available.
