MESSAGE FROM THE COMMITTEE
Marty Reunion Committee would like to thank everyone who attended the 2012 Marty Reunion that was held at Marty, SD, June
22-24, 2012. For many years former Marty students have gathered at the Marty Reunion to renew friendships and make
new friends. It was a week-end filled with fun and laughter where former Marty students were the center of attention. The
Committee put together activities for all to enjoy and they offered an afternoon to just sit and visit. The banquet was fun
and the visit from Sister Rene and Father Gualbert was a highlight of the dinner. We hope it was enjoyable and that it
will always remain a week-end to remember. Following are pictures that you will enjoy. More photos will be added over the
next couple weeks. If you have photos that you want on the site, please send them and we will see that they get posted.

Marty Reunion Income and Expense Information
Marty Reunion Committee wishes to thank Mary Ann Allery (Class of 1962!) for taking charge of the finances for the reunion.
She did an outstanding job of keeping track of all monies. This was not an easy task, especially at the reunion where funds
were coming and going as people registered, we paid for food, people bought chances, etc. This is also another opportunity
to thank everyone for taking part in the silent auction. As you can see, it was a big part of the revenue and a place where
everyone got involved! And, below is information about the raffle. Thank you to everyone who donated items and sold chances.
The following is our financial status as of August 6, 2012. The 2010 reunion committee gave us $809.54 at
the beginning of the 2012 reunion planning process. Thank you to everyone who helped in any way!
