Our 50th Reunion was held on Saturday, August 24, 2019 at Skip’s Restaurant.
We reminisced and caught up on each other’s lives and remembered those of our friends who are no longer with us. Some of us married and remarried, some raised children, some had interesting careers and experiences and some are now blessed and delighted with grandchildren. A few are already enjoying retirement but many of us are still working but planning for those times. There were conversations about teenage adventures, high school experiences, teachers, families, first cars and classmates not seen for many years.
The time went by too quickly and departed much too early, probably a function of age and responsibility, but we are already thinking and planning for the next time we meet.
Nineteen classmates (Gary Kendzierski, Steven Hamann, Ron Mitchell, Mark Moore, Dale Kruger, Jim Smitchger, Vicki Sandstrom, Susie (Russell) Handley, Phil McCotter, Yvonne (Grubah) Smith, Cathy (Gray) Dickerhoff, Pepper Aasgard, Terri (Bean) Chrobak, Janet (Skora) Rogers, Glenn Fulford, Nancy (Zboril) Gino, Trudy (Cassleman) Schalm, Jacki (Smith) Henry, and Denise Marx) and their guests were on hand. There were a few gate-crashers as well.
Reunion organizers were Nancy, Jacki, Cathy, Trudy, Yvonne, Janet and Jim.
