Updated January 21, 1999

The video is finished and will be mailed out in the next day or so!! It is really great! For those of you that ordered one, let me know what you think and I'll post your comments.

1/9 Ray Argabright and I spent about over an hour on the phone the other night. He is going to help me spruce up the site and add some new features. He designs web sites for a living. I am sending him the pictures (he lives in Texas), and he is going to scan them so we can get them on the site sooner. Check out his web site at:


He has set up a mailing list with all of you on it, so I will e-mail you as we get new things on the site.

Did ya'll receive the e-mail from Ray?? And did you check out the satellite photo of Mainland?? Is that scary or what! I ask Ray if he knows where I was last Tuesday around 12noon. I'm in trouble if he does!!

This may be the start of some exciting new stuff on the web site! Keep watching!

Happy New Year to each of you!!
I hope you all have a really great 1999.
May all your wishes and dreams come true or at the very least...

If you would like your words posted here...
Send me an e-mail-- Thanks, Judy

Bev, Tommy, John and I want to thank each and every one of you for your enthusiastic participation. It would not have been the same if any one of you had not been there to make it an event to remember.

If any of you have any comments/reviews about "The Reunion", e-mail me and I'll add them to the web site.

I'll try to get some pictures on the web site within the next few weeks, so keep watching!

11/29-- It's a much more respectable hour of the day now. I'm still trying to recover--Maybe it's a good thing we only do these every 5-10 years!

I don't have a final count, but we probably had around 120 people at the reunion. The DJ was good, the food was excellent, the spirits were free flowing, and the video guy was omnipresent, so we should have some good footage to show at the next one! Everyone seemed to enjoy the videos running of the last two reunions. It was interesting to note that none of us are showing any signs of our age!

We were so pleased that Mr. Moritz and Mr. Carlson were able to join us and represent the faculty that helped shape our lives.

Everyone seemed to have a good time
finding their "Soul Mate"
for the Famous Couples Dance:

Linda deGrom Meeks was a beauty in the Briar Patch as Daisy Mae!---
Her husband Paul was doing a cool moon walk as Michael Jackson!---

Gary Grunder as Fred Flintstone hollered out: "YABBA DABBA DOOO" and Esther Watson Long came running over as Wilma!--

Bill Gallup as Prince Ranier is making plans for our next reunion to be in Monico!--

Chris Drake as George Bush said to Charlene Burnsed Irland as Barbara, "Read my lips: Meet me back here in 5 years!"--

Ted Courson and his wife Roxie were a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll as Donnie and Marie--

Marvin Brugone was dancing with someone his own age as Woody Allen--

Dennis Cole as Dagwood and Bev Hall Mitchell as Blondie added a new dimension to the Sunday cartoon--

Clint Asbury made a powerful Henry the VIII--

Danny Biechler was Sonny in need of a pair of bellbottoms--

Judy Durrance Schnebly was in demand as Monica--

Kathy Jackson Streichert was a graceful Ginger Rogers--

Brenda Keil McLaughlin was our Queen of the Magic Kingdom as Minnie--

John Scott made a Top Gun Tom Cruise--

Barbara Hawley Mock was a cute Betty Rubble to Merle Harton as Barney--

Linda Hawley Johnston was a curious Jackie Kennedy wondering if the whole thing could be a conspiracy--

Butch Johnston was Romeo knowing his real Juliet was playing Jackie--

Kathy Gilmore Fuori was lonely as Ethel.... Fred, are you out there?--

More about the Rich and Famous soon...

11/29--It's 2:00am and The Party's over for another 5-10 years. I believe a good time was had by all. I even had some spouses and guests that told me they had a good time.

The gals were dressed up very special and the guys were lookin' good! I think we're all going to have to get some sequins for the next event!

It was quite a challenge picking the classmates to get the Coveted Awards, but our class did a wonderful job. Now, if I weren't still full of Chardonnay, I would be happy to share the winners with you. I'll pick up here later today and try to come up with all the winners!

11/28--It's 1:00am and I just got home from the wonderful party at Tommy and JoLynn's home. As usual they threw a wonderful party! The evening was the perfect start to our reunion weekend. It was so good to see everyone...

Connie Becks Schnebly looks like she just stepped out of the halls of yesterday. Albert Vilanova is dancing up a storm. Linda Maybeck Waymire is still a pleasure to know. The Hawley twins still look like twins. Tom Renick is our official Baywatch Dude. Tim Langford is having way too much fun. Tim LeCrone probably traveled the farthest to get to see a few of his nearest and dearest friends. Esther Watson Long can party with the best of them. John Scott is still smart and left early to rest up for the big event. And Clint Asbury is able to outlast all the other guys.

Several members of the Class of 1967 (Steve Waters, Chris Lyons, & John Mitchell) joined us and want to become official members of Our Class-- We said OK!

I hope everybody is resting up for the big bash tonight!
