23/24, 2010 MINI REUNION
Ice cream sundaes, popcorn and lots of laughs were the order of the day (evening) at The Gaslight Theatre on April 23, 2010. Nineteen people attended dinner at Little Anthony's Diner, which is part of the theatre building. Three April birthdays were recognized and Marilyn Hart Anton, Fran Rosen Knowles and Bob Pfeffer were presented with an ice cream sundae and kisses on both cheeks by the waiters/waitresses. A photo was taken by the restaurant and later presented to each recipient (see Fran's).
The evening performance was "The Son of the Sheik." It was a fast-paced musical melodrama, accompanied by piano, drums and guitar. The dialogue was clever, the lyrics up-beat, the stage settings excellent, and the 26 classmates and guests all seemed to enjoy themselves. The consensus was to do it again next year.
On Saturday the 24th, 27 CHS '58 alumni and 13 guests (for a grand total of 40) attended the luncheon buffet and gathering at Tanque Verde Ranch. The weather cooperated beautifully and we, once again, had the Mexican Room to ourselves.
Regrets were read from those unable to attend, the conversations flowed throughout the day and a very interesting talk was given by classmate, Bob Pfeffer, on The
Hydrogen Economy. It opened our minds to considering other options to our current fuel choices and to our dependency on foreign oil. Thanks for keeping it short and making it understandable, Bob.
Margie Wagner Fangmeier reported on the CHS Foundation's aspirations and events.
There was discussion on planning a cruise next year, possibly to the Mexican Riviera or Alaska, in place of our gathering at the TVR. Later, it was suggested that we have both events for those who prefer one over the other, or wish to attend both. Therefore, I have reserved May 7, 2011 at the Tanque Verde Ranch for next year's "mini," since several classmates have conflicting events at the end of April and haven't been able to join us for several years. MARK YOUR CALENDARS. I will be happy to make reservations at Little Anthony's and The Gaslight Theatre for their May 6, 2011 performance. Our classmate, Linda Mishkind Schiesel, a travel agent in Tucson, will be handling the cruise arrangements. I will be letting everyone know our choices after Linda has done some research on the matter.
