DDS Class of 2012

The Class of 2012 celebrated their 10-year reunion on the shores of Lake Washington. More than half of the class made it to town, plus spouses, children, and dogs. It was great catching up and learning where everyone has ended up and what is new in their lives. Although we missed a number of people, we are looking forward to the next one! – Rusty Johnson
