Thank you!

Dear Northern Tier Alumni and Friends,

As the echoes of laughter and the warmth of shared memories linger in our hearts, we extend our sincerest gratitude to each of you who joined us for the unforgettable 100th Anniversary Reunion. The Far Northland came alive with the spirit of adventure, camaraderie, and cherished traditions.

The past few days have been a testament to the enduring legacy of Northern Tier and the remarkable community that has been built over a century. From the exciting activities to the heartfelt conversations around the campfire, every moment enriched the reunion experience and reminded us of the profound impact Northern Tier has had on countless lives.

As we bid farewell to this milestone gathering, we invite you to mark your calendars for the next adventure. The 2025 Northern Tier Reunion will once again bring us together to celebrate, reconnect, and forge new memories. Until then, consider joining us Up North this May for the Volunteer Work Week. This unique opportunity allows you to give back to the place that has given us so much, all while enjoying the breathtaking wilderness that has become a part of who we are.

Thank you for making the 100th Anniversary Reunion an incredible success, and for being a vital thread in the tapestry of Northern Tier's history. May the memories we've shared continue to inspire us until we meet again.
