 News Alert: Next year's Mini Reunion May 3-4, 2019

Those of you who could not make it to our 60th Reunion on April 27th, 28th and 29th of 2018 missed a fabulous weekend.  And we missed all of you. 

There were 47 Classmates and 25 Guests for a total of 72 attendees over the 3 days of festivities. 

In alphabetical order by Maiden/Last Name, classmates who attended were: 

Sally (Anderson) Daniels, Milton Angel, Hal Ashton, Stephen Bentley, John “Mike” Bording, Barbara (Callaway) Pollack, George Campbell, Susan (Carruth) Ellington, Petite (Catlin) Morrison, Mike Codd, Alan Curiel, Newt Derby, Fred Gil, Sandy (Heinz) Bentley, Judy (Hodge) Lundin, Carol (Holstrom) Lange, Ruth (Lubbers) Patzman, Sharon (Maucher) Caldwell, Eddie McPheeters, Bill Mower, Don Neil, John Nygaard, Paul Nygaard, Danni (Patton) Coalter, John Patzman, Bob Pfeffer, Barbara Pokorny, Jim Reddish, Dale Rees, Larry Rodish, Fran (Rosen) Knowles, George Roth, Sue (Shefferly Adams), Al Slavens, Davis Smith, Ward Stevens, Barbara (Svob) Sherman, Sandy (Tanner) Elers, Helen (Trott) Campbell, Nancy (Trott) Hurtado, Bill Urias, Lynne (Vanerka) Jackson, Bob Wallace, Karen (Winter) Lassell, Jack Wojnowski, Kirk Young and Pat Young. 

We had a Hospitality Room at the Radisson Suites Tucson on Speedway where we visited, snacked, looked through memorabilia (including photos from high school and past reunions), and where lots of tall tales were told.

On Friday afternoon 41 of us met at Little Anthony’s Diner on Broadway Blvd. for our meal before the evening performance.  The Gaslight Theatre hosted 38 of us for their musical entitled,  “Rockabilly Raceway.”  It was a fast moving, fun, sometimes spontaneous play. Saturday morning, over 30 folks met at Catalina High School for a tour that Sandy (Tanner) Elers had arranged.  Mr. Gale Bell, Science teacher and Track Coach attended at the urging of Dale Rees.  Dale reports that Mr. Bell (age 94) is as sharp as ever and that he drove himself to and from the school.  I think he’s our role model.  :-) 

Saturday evening’s activities began with a cocktail hour on the terrace in front of the Reddington Room and moved into the banquet room for the remainder of the evening.  

40 classmates and guests joined us back in the Reddington Room for our last scheduled event - Sunday’s breakfast buffet. 

Everyone who attended is to be commended.  It seems to take more energy than it used to (shucks!) for planning and preparation and travel to attend such events.  We are grateful to everyone who made the effort.  Sharon (Maucher) Caldwell, Sandy (Tanner) Elers and I thank all of you for your wonderful support, enthusiasm and assistance.  What a tremendous class! 

Hugs, Fran

This is from the CHS Tour on Saturday morning (4/28/18).  Mr. Gale Bell is sitting down on his walker in front. 
Dale Rees offered to help him to his car.  Mr. Bell said it wasn't necessary, walked to his vehicle,
threw the walker into the trunk and drove off.
He is a good role model at 94 years...just sayin
