Very clever, those pirates..............lots of laughs, funny dialogue, terrific set decorations, upbeat songs and plenty of popcorn on the tables charged the atmosphere with enthusiasm.  And that was only Friday night at The Gaslight Theatre’s production of “The Curse of the Pirate’s Gold.”  Nineteen of us met for dinner at Little Anthony’s diner before the play and had some great visits with old friends.  (I didn’t say “friends who are old,” I said “old friends”……….J)  Twenty one classmates and guests enjoyed the play. 


Saturday at Tanque Verde Ranch (TVR) was as pleasant as ever.  Twenty seven people gathered at the ranch for storytelling and catching up.  (Some are very good at story embellishing......oops, I mean “telling.”)  The buffet was all “low cal,” including the dessert table!  Just kidding, but I should have taken photos of all the food and scrumptious desserts for those of you who didn’t attend, just to make your mouth water. 



If you need first hand info on knee and hip replacement, we might just have the blue ribbon on knowledge of those surgeries.  Hearing aids and cataract operations might take second and third place respectively.   

It’s a year away, but a vote was taken and a decision was made to schedule next year’s mini reunion for May 4th and 5th, 2012.  If I lock in the reservation now at TVR, the cost will be $18 a person.

Our 55th Reunion is quickly approaching (2013).  We need someone to step forward and volunteer to coordinate the event.  I am hereby declaring my non-availability as overall coordinator.  I will be happy to support that person with email assistance.  Please consider volunteering or recommending someone.  Otherwise, we’ll continue with our usual “mini” for that year, too. 

We have added some additional names on our Missing list on our website.  Please check that link as well as our Memoriam page and Biography pages.  Think about adding your own bio.  Jack will scan in your high school picture and I can help you with a current photo. 

Our best to everyone and thanks to those who attended this year’s reunion weekend.  Check out the pictures and names below to see who was there.
