Well, we did it again, this time after 45 years. Wow. These get-togethers just seem to take on a life of their own once everyone starts arriving. To view some of the photos from the evening, click here for the reunion album on Picasa and here’s a short VIDEO of the evening.

Thanks fo everyone who came. A good time was had by all!



One last call…

There is still time to get your reservations in. Absolute final is October 3. Just a few weeks left! It looks like we will once again have a very nice crowd.


In honor of those not with us….

Reunion Call to Arms!

Posted in Uncategorized by smarski on April 20, 2015

With the advent of the Internet, I have relied on Classmates and Facebook for the last several reunions. During the last five years in particular, it seems more of us have joined FB. However, many emails I got at the 30 are being kicked back. Things change and we lose touch.
Since we ain’t gettin’ younger, folks, I thought it might be fun to go on a Classmate Hunt…think of one or two people you knew in high school that we have lost touch with, and search for them on the Internet. LinkedIn, whitepages.com and switchboard.com are great tools. I have found five people I used to know, some based on obituaries when parents died. Great way to find married names.
So get to work! Let’s make the 45th the best reunion yet, and fill up that big room upstairs that Don Wesselhoff got for us! No, not that one, the one at the Oak Lawn VFW.
Look who I found in Boise, Idaho! I’m going to give him a call later today.


It’s that time…45 years!
