Dayton High classes holding reunions

Dayton High School Class of 1986 will hold its 20-year reunion Friday through Sunday.

Tentatively, they are planning a Friday evening get-together; Saturday night dinner at Dayton Valley Golf Club, and a family barbecue and fun day on Saturday or Sunday. The dinner event requires an RSVP and will require advance payment with reservation. They would appreciate any positive input and assistance in finding classmates.
