Fellow classmates! The reunion invitation was sent out today (July 1) from Jim Dunning. You will receive it via email/snail mail depending on the info we have for you.
If you can return the info/$$ to me sooner rather than later, it will really help the planning committee as we move forward.
We are so excited about the possibility of our 60th reunion being the 'best ever', and hope to see all of you there!
Friday night, 9/13, will be the initial gathering, and the banquet and short program will be on Saturday.
Members from the classes of '58 and '60 are invited to join us on Friday, September 13th! This will be posted in the Worthington Globe and on Classmates.com. We are also trying to track down teachers from '59 to invite them to join us!
Per Dwayne Junker's suggestion, the Worthington Daily Globe will be featuring an article on the Class of '59 reunion! The reporter covering the story is Julie Buntjer, sister of Del Buntjer, one of our classmates who recently passed away. Serendipity...
We have set up a Shutterfly Share site for the Class of '59. See link below...
If you get a reply that you have to have permission, please let me know right away.
Myron Meyer is getting his tractor and flatbed ready for the big parade. Thanks to his efforts through the years to get us in the parade!
So many committee members have been hard at work on the reunion: Jim Dunning, chair and keeper of the many details; Connie Schmidt, venue locator; Bonny Johnson Doyle and Joyce Selberg Wilson, decorations/booklets/memory displays etal; Dwayne Junker, super sleuth in finding 'lost' classmates; Joel Lieske, music coordinator for the parade/reunion site; Gary Kallsen has developed posters highlighting life in '59 and changes; Sandy Clark Noerenberg had many good suggestions, especially the one about recognizing those in our class who served in the military; Myron--parade... Unfortunately Melvin Leistico, long-time committee member is unable to join us this year. Other planning committee members include Kathy Fiola Sherwood and Bill Wolterstorff. It is amazing that this committee of 13 people--spread across the country from CA to OH--has put this reunion together without ever meeting as a group!
One note: if you are going to the high school tour on Saturday, please arrive by 9:00 or earlier--there will not be a bus so transportation is on your own. Check with your friends to carpool.
On Saturday evening, Kathy Breeze Marticorena will read the list of classmates no longer with us. Sadly, that number has grown to 51... They will be missed.
Look forward to seeing you!
Adrienne Osterfeld Hurlbert, Treasurer
