Medica users might have seen this: former classmate Gail Hughes, a Morningsider, is featured on the cover of the insurance company's latest magazine for customers. Nice article. Here's the link:

Welcome to our class website, Dawn. We’re glad you’ve joined us. There’s a lot to look at. Enjoy!

Hello Classmates, Are you interested in the early frontier history of Minnesota? If so, I hope you will join me, and other members of our class, on Saturday, August 17th, for a visit to several historic sites from the Dakota Sioux Uprising. We'll visit the actual location, west of Litchfield, where 4 or 5 Sioux teenagers shot and killed members of a pioneer family on Aug 17, 1862. This was the beginning of the war that ended with a mass hanging in Mankato, of 38 Sioux warriors on Dec 26, 1862. I have met the Great Great Granddaughter of the family that helped to bury those killed in this first attack. She has agreed to met us on Saturday, and share with us her research of the war, and answer any questions we may have. She knows the subject quite well since it was the topic of her Master's thesis - from the Indian perspective. Another stop will be at the site of a murdered family, that was recorded by chiseling a record of the incident in a boulder marking the site of the attack. We will be stopping at the rock, where the inscription can still be read. Our last stop will be to visit an original pioneer cabin, complete with period furniture from the 1850's. This cabin is one of, if not the first Finnish settlement in Minnesota. It's absolutely fascinating to see the actual structures that the early pioneers built, and survived in to tame the Western frontier - which Minnesota was at that time. I am trying to get the President of the local historic society to visit with us on the 17th, but at this time that has not been confirmed. If you would like to do some additional research: google Dakota War of 1862, and/or Temperance Corners - this is the name of the Finnish cabin, and other period buildings located at the site. After we finish our last stop, those that have the time are invited for refreshments at my lake home. It's about a 6 mile drive from our last stop. If your interested in joining the tour, please send me your email address, and I will provide more specific details. Looking forward to hearing from you - Tom Anderson’s email:

Happy birthday, Candace, and greetings to Judge Mike.

Will be in Minnesota in July/August and maybe we can meet in Twin Cities or down in sunny Northfield. Will tell you all about my recent fun reunion lunch with Greg Long in Greenwich Village. Hadn't caught up with him in decades.

Sadly, Tom Anderson informed us today of the loss of another of our classmates - David Field, of Edina. His obituary has been posted on our In Memory page. A life well lived. Rest in peace, David.

We received sad news that our classmate, Julie Jones Marrs, passed away on Monday, May 13, 2019. Julie was 72 and resided in Minnetonka.

Born October 22, 1946 in Lancaster, PA, she was the daughter of the late Dan and Worthington Jones.

Julie is survived by her daughters, Amy Lee Hayes and Emily Elizabeth Marrs; Larry Marrs, Amy and Emily's father; her grandchildren Hannah (21), and Maddie (17) Hayes; her sister, Marjorie and her husband John Hellweg, and her nephew Jonathan Graham and niece, Maggie Graham.

Julie was a beautiful woman, inside and out. She touched those in her life with abounding grace, kindness and fiery spunk. Her love for all things Harley, rock and roll music, cats and her family brought her great joy throughout her years. She is now in the arms of her heavenly father.

A Celebration of Life Open House will be held on Monday, May 20th at her sister's home - 3407 Moorland Rd, Minnetonka, MN 55345 from 4:00 - 8:00 PM with a time of sharing and words from family members at 6:00 PM. All family and friends are welcome.

Carol, on behalf of our classmates, I'd like to send you positive thoughts and prayers for a very successful surgery tomorrow when they install a biventricular pacemaker/internal cardiac defibrillator. May you have a speedy recovery and feel better than ever!

From Mary Ann Nord -
In last Sunday's Star Tribune, I saw an obituary for Catherine Maley, who taught French at Edina when we were students. Scott Reeves, Pam Morford, Jeannie Ostendorf and anyone else who took French in those years had her for at least one year, and several of us had her for two years in a row. Her obituary doesn't mention her stint at Edina; rather, it focuses on her academic career and related honors. Apparently, her years at Edina were a transition between her undergraduate degree and her graduate school years. I guess her years as a high school teacher weren't as important to her family as her academic distinctions but she made an impression of us high schoolers! I'm sure other classmates would be interested to learn what she moved on to after she left Edina.
