“More or less, it’s kind of just wandering the streets. Generally, both Friday and Saturday nights, we go downtown, wander around and find a place to sit and see who shows up,” says Landa Stavn-Manders, a 1974 graduate of Watford City High School on her annual pilgrimage to Watford City’s Homefest.
As Watford City’s class reunions have brought pretty big turnouts in recent years, Jan Dodge, a resident of Watford City and also a member of the Class of 1974, says it’s a great way to stimulate memories.
“Happy occasions, sad occasions, it’s a way for our classmates to continue to communicate,” says Dodge.
