just wanted to say "thanks" to Patty and Kathy for pulling
everything together (great job!), to Linda for the delicious food, to
Helen and her husband for opening up their home to us for the bonfire
(wasn't it nice that the weather cooperated?), to Janet for the
wonderful decorations that brought back memories, and last but not
least, to Steve and his wife, Kathy, for providing the hall, the music,
good conversation, and making my husband feel welcome!
was fun to get reacquainted with Kathy Magyar again and to watch
everyone at the bonfire try to figure out who the "bearded guy from
our class" was (it was my husband from Midview). And to David Styer
(alias Guy Fudor) (and his wonderful wife), thanks for your great sense
of humor and making us all laugh!
Randy, John Shuster, and Gene, thanks for bringing the sunshine with you
from Florida (next time, please bring warmer temperatures), and to Bruce
"Icky" Ives, thanks for just being you...I'll never forget you
showing up at the picnic Sunday with the police officer and getting
"handcuffed" even though I told the officer that you did
belong with our group!!
to Roena, I will be thinking about you.
husband, Gary, and I had a wonderful, fun filled weekend and look
forward to seeing some of you in the near future...everyone take care,
and God Bless.
|Thank You Jan!!!
Thank Me? Hey we all worked hard and it was such a
pleasure. As I was
coming home I thought so much about what happened this weekend and how
blessed we all are for having our lives touch each other
again. It couldn't have been more perfect and what happened there
was so neat and beautiful. It wasn't just a celebration of being
out of school 35 years, it was a celebration of our lives and who we are
and turned out to be. How lucky are we to have that and to have
gotten over those insecurities from high school and just truly enjoy
each for who we are. That's what I hoped would happen and it did.
I think what I am most
thankful for is having our committee become such a 'family'. I
think that at our age it means so much.
The friendships that developed from this mean so much to me.
I have enjoyed reacquainting with Steve but also getting to know you.
You are both wonderful and I truly feel so blessed to count you as my
Thank you for all of your help but most of all thank you for your
I love you both,
Jan, and also Steve, Helen, Bill, Linda and Patti
couldn't be more right about a perfect weekend. What fun, even the
committee meetings and like you said, renewing our friendships and being
a team. And as far as efforts, your decorations and special touches
meant so much. It set the atmosphere for a great time. Steve, your
thoughtfulness with the rose, the generosity of the hall, sound
equipment, webmaster extraordinaire, and lining up the DJ. Patti, your
gift of organization and public speaking and you started the ball
rolling. Bill, thank you so much for being you, thoughtful, kind and
what a Sunday event person you were, I think you lined up that beautiful
weather we ended up having. Helen, where do I begin, the hostess with
the mostest, your generosity went beyond the call of duty. Linda, thank
you for the raffle and the beautiful rose idea and lining that up and
being the caterer contact. With the realization sickness and death,
though always there, we might not ever ever have this opportunity again
with some of the classmates. It was a pleasure and privilege to be a
part of it all. See you on the 27th.
you all. Kathy W.

|Steve and Kathy, you did so much to make this event come off as
'fantastic' Your efforts made it a special event for all to enjoy.
Please be kind in posting pictures, but we are all waiting in
anticipation of their addition to 'our' website. It did give us all the

happen. Thanks for all your work on it. always -Cathy L.

|Dear Committee Members,
I think one word describes the reunion, "incredible"! Starting with the
incredible job you people did with organizing, getting in contact with
people, the courage it takes to believe it can and will happen (that people
will actually show up), the decorations, etc. at the hall, the booklet, on
and on. Incredible that you can see someone after 35 years and yet when you
actually meet them again it is like it was yesterday. Incredible to the
people who traveled so far to make it what it was. I enjoyed every minute.
Incredible that after not seeing people after so much time, it was over so
fast. It was a weekend that no one will ever forget. Great job and thanks.
P.S. One disappointment, I didn't take more pictures. If I could get a few
medium resolution (~350K if possible) digital pictures from someone that
would be great!
again for all the work you guys did! That was one of the best weekends
(without sex) that I've had in a long time. It was great to see that
everyone, in the long run, has had a good life and seems to be happy. I
didn't have one person tell me about their gall bladder operation! Take
care, keep in touch and the best to you and Clint.

|Hats off to the entire committee. I have
enjoyed going to the website many times to see the pictures. Lola called
and gave me all the scoop on you all. I have so many memories, a lot I
have shared with Jan and Lola. Some I don't care to share, Lola and I
were known for trouble on occasion. You all look great and what a great
time to come together. I have kept in touch with many older and younger
schoolmates and they all agree that the class of 1967 in their eyes was
one of the closest and most fun classes of WHS. I received a nice email
from Randy Saxe today, what a cutie. Jan the decorations looked great,
Kathy you did a great job on keeping in touch, Steve the website is
absolutely wonderful, and Bill what can I say, you are always my special
bud. I am feeling better. Still on bedrest. Everyone please keep in
touch. I really missed a special night. My best wishes for health,
happinesss and success to you all. Hoping to hear from some of you,
soon. Always, Donna Carpenter Schlenbaker. If you are ever in Toledo
area, my home is yours. GO DUKES!!!!!!!!

sent it to DS. Told him that I found him out as an imposter!
it is a popular name. But, I am the one that you will always remember!!

exploits in my story?
Fed..., err... Rock, err... DS, err. Sweetie Pie, err. Dear, err... Big

there are so many of them that sometimes, even the I have trouble
Hope that all found it entertaining and did not take offense. I really
enjoyed meeting the Class and have real regrets for the missed years.
What a truly wonderful group. Thanks for everything -- you time and
energy in planning and preparation. As I am now only about 45 mins from
Wellington, would like to be in on the "Reindeer fun" of
planning the next one? I think the idea of the cruise is a wonderful
idea and would be willing to work on the committee.
you kidding? Offense? Between Icky getting "handcuffed" at the
Sunday picnic and our beloved exchange student, those will be my fondest
new memories of my classmates. Stop by any time. Bye KW.
the posts it sounds like John and I missed a great weekend with
everyone. We hate we missed it. We had planned on being
there but family happenings changed our plans. Thank you to the
organizational team that planned the event. Hopefully there will
be a 40th and we will be at that one.
If anyone took any video, or has pictures we could buy prints of, we
would enjoy that. Please let us know.
John and I are in Nesbit, MS. It is just over the state line from
Memphis, TN. So if anyone is in the area, do give us a call.
We are in the Memphis phone book. Actually, there are two John Wackers
listed. Either one will get you in touch with us as the other John
is our son.
John is an Avionics Tech with FedEx. He has worked there for 26
years now. I stay busy as the most blessed wife, mother, and
grandmother in the world.
Love to hear from you,
John and Brenda
want to say thanks to everyone who put so much work into organizing our
class reunion. It was really worth the trip up there. To see everyone
and talk about old memories was really fantastic. The bon fire at
Helen's house was really nice (thanks Helen). The tour of the school
brought back a lot of memories, good and bad, I just can't imagine how
much the school hasn't changed in all those years. We left Ohio on
Wednesday (Oct.16) to travel back to Florida, the day we left it was
cold and rainy, sure was nice to get back home and wear shorts again.
"You all" should move down here, our next reunion could be a
thanks to all for your hard work
Kathy, Helen, Janet, Linda, Steve & Bill,
all of your inspiration and dedication, this reunion would not have
taken place. Thank-you all... what a wonderful feeling it was
to see so many old friends and classmates! Let's not wait 5 years to get
