Welcome to our website, Larry! We are glad you joined us. We hope you are enjoying our site and hope you’ll be able to reconnect with some of our classmates. I was born in Montana and have always loved that state. What an impressive career you’ve had in medicine! Hopefully, you’ll join us in September for our 60th reunion.

Second post of the day... another FYI: despite incorrect info on his profile, Bob Abbott (who with his wife, Sue, alternates homes in Florida and Alexandria) has his 77th BD arriving on Dec. 24, Happy Xmas and birthday, too, Robert!

hello to everyone. For those who lived in Morningside, FYI that Steve Riley died about a week ago at age 77. The Rileys lived on Lynn Avenue, I believe, and they moved to Wayzata before he graduated.

Sixty years ago today, we were all in class when the loudspeaker came on with news of the shooting of President Kennedy. I remember how stunned I was and frightened about what this meant for the future of our country. I remember being angry with Mr Bechtle still making us take our vocabulary test - who could concentrate??!! What are your memories of that fateful day?

Happy Birthday and Thanksgiving!
Will try to connect with you next time we are in Austin!

I just love the pictures of Bill with his family!  He was such a wonderful man!  And I also enjoyed the shot of the 3 hockey friends.  It's so sad to keep losing members of our class.

Where is Dick Hays???
It was called to my attention that Dick Hays, who served as Treasurer on our 50th Reunion Committee, was missing from the photo of the committee in the Photo Gallery. I looked for him and grabbed him for a retake of the photo. Sorry it took nine years, Dick! Our apologies.

Here we are at the end of 2022, I wonder what you all have been through?
I have managed to get away, enjoying a little warm island play!
But tough winter stories have hit the news, I am on the beach while you may be singing the blues!
Just think- in another year and a half, we will all be having a laugh- our 60 year celebration will be in line, so I can only hope some folks find the time, to organize- then we can fraternize!
I have seen so few of you, the 55 year party I invited you all to, but now my house in Minnetrista was sold, we felt we were getting to old- looking after the 5 acres was a lot of land, we changed our minds- creating a new plan!
But maybe I will still have my car shop- after 50 years there I m not ready to stop!
Who has a mind to put it out, see what we can think about?
Happy New year-2023 looks great to me,
Mark Brandow
