April Lais Wolf and Ron Wolf

Thank you Craig for posting all of the wonderful pictures. Fortunately, the weather cooperated and everyone could enjoy visiting in scenic downtown Chicago. Ron and I are sorry that we had to miss all of the fun.                              

We also have some great places to gather in the Plano and Dallas area. " Shops at Legacy" has a hotel, numerous restaurants and areas to just sit around and visit. If everyone doesn't like summer here, spring or fall would be perfect..

Hi to everyone!

It seems by all the happy faces (you all still look the same) that I missed a fantastic time! Jim and I were with our two grandbabies up in Boulder while Matt (our Olympian son-in-law) and daughter were competing in what else?? a triathlon, out of town. Would have loved seeing all of you (last time was in Saugatuck), so tell me when is the next reunion?

We will be in Chicago on October 6-10th any chance I can catch you locals?

Looks like a great time was had by all....sorry I missed the memories.

Amazing no one looks any different than we did on graduation day from Morgan Park...

Best to all,

Barb and Ray, you silver tounged devils. It is the pilot in Ray and the Rocky Mountain High in Barb.

You better come next time. Miss Camutz will be very severe if you are a no show next time. Applies to everyone else as well.



From: Ray Justinic

I remember chasing Miss Camutz down the hall after service with Miss Waters when she would forget her crutch in the counselor's office. She never said thanks, just grunted and took it. So I don't want her on my case. Just keep me in the loop for the next get together and I will try. I will apologize in advance because that will advance the age and ruin the next set of pictures. Off to the airport for a flight.

Craig - Thanks for pulling the reunion together Saturday. I had a great time. It was a nice sized group and I really enjoyed seeing all of you after all these years.



Glad I was able to make the reunion last weekend and just arrived back in Prescott tonight!  Had a wonderful time and hope to see everyone again soon, while missing those of you who could not make it.  Special thanks to Craig for all his work and for giving me a ride back to Orland Park and to Gene for keeping me warm.  Oh by the way, Bob S., you do not have to get your course book out to see if you took typing, it was Bob U. - at least the first name was right!

Several of us talked about Zion National Park in Utah, as a possibility.

Looking forward to being back in the Chicago area once again from September 13 - October 31.

Craig, I see rave reviews coming in. You've got a winning system for organizing fun reunions in an efficient, no fuss, no hassle, low cost way. Everyone else expends a lot more time and energy on what are probably less enjoyable outcomes. And most can't do it without convening a bunch of committees. Must be your military training. I think you should run for Congress.

I'm happy there is talk of another reunion somewhere. Did you get a sense of what time frame people are thinking of? A year, two, three? I hope it's sooner rather than later. Nice job!


Thanks for the kind words, Don, but don't think flattery will get you out of the virtual reality counselling session with Miss Camutz. She came in a dream vision last night, landed near MPHS, and told me she was going to be very severe with anyone who missed the reunion. And she did not give any excused absences. So all of you who missed the reunion, even when you had a valid excuse, can expect to meet her in your dreams. She is flying in a UFO, which lands in Millenium Park.

 She is Baaack !! She will be very severe!!!

UFO Abducts students and teacher from MPHS in 1966,
returns in 2009 in Millenium Park

We did not discuss when we would hold the next reunion. A couple of years from now, probably.  Volunteers (They may have been under the influence) included Larry Herman's home in Michigan, Bob Glines boat on Lake Michigan, Jane Mulder's home in Wisconsin, Renee and Susan Wiggins out west, and/or back in downtown Chicago.

Not sure when.  If we do it too often people will miss.  We don't want to interfere with the big 65 / 66 /67 reunion, which will probably be every 5 years.  But we are getting older, many of us retired or close to it, and we more time off. So whoever volunteers next, that is where it will be.

Jane Mulder arrived late, catching up
