is connected with reunion committee would be gracious enough to email me I

MARRIED!! Took us long
enough! My sweetie Jeff and I
finally made it legal on July 22nd at a little white church
with family and close friends. His
parents flew in from Montana and Allyson Smith came all the way from New
York (looking too good, I might add, she has not aged a day!) We are
extremely happy and are confident that this is one marriage that will
last!! As for other news, my
oldest son, Mike, is a Lance Corporal in the Marine Corps and is currently
stationed at Beaufort, S.C., working as an air traffic controller, and is
getting married on April 6th, 2001!
I am way too young to be a grandmother, so they had better just
wait a while! My second
oldest son, James, spent the spring working as a congressional page for
Steny Hoyer and attending the U.S. Page
school in the Library of Congress. He
met lots of politicians and had a great time in the adult world, living in
a dorm and strolling around what he hopes will be his future stomping
grounds. (Vote for James Kelley for Congress!) He graduates from high
school in 2001. Finally, my
third oldest son, (I have 7 kids, so updates take a while...) has decided
to enter the Navy after graduation in 2001.
Whew! Well, thatís
about it, the younger ones arenít doing too much right now, just
enjoying whatís left of summer vacation. I am looking forward to the
reunion, hoping to see some familiar faces and enjoying an evening out
with my new husband!

Staff: Mr. Lewis (vice principal) In 1970, Montgomery County allowed girls
to wear pants to school, providing they had a note from their parents. The
day after it became legal I wore a blue and white checkered wool pantsuit
with a frilly white blouse and I had a note from mom stating it was more
decent that I wear pants to school than short skirts.
Mr. Lewis took me out of math class (during a test) and spent 40
mins. explaining why he would NEVER allow his daughter to wear pants to
school... how things have changed!

The Class of 1964:
want to thank all of you who attended the reunion and for your kind
comments to Candy, Eileen, Gale and me for our efforts. There are many
people in our class that I want to say a special thank you to because
without them this event would have never been possible. But first let me
thank my co-chairs, Candy, Eileen and Gale. I have never worked with such
a great committee. The 4 of us got along so well and I can honestly say we
were never in disagreement about anything and there was always a real
spirit of cooperation. Now as to thanking those of you in the class of 64,
first and foremost is Candy Beck Burch. Candy began assisting me on the
reunion about 2 and half years ago and while she found many of the
addresses for people in our class she also went on to search for many in
63 and 65 as well. She then stepped in to take over total responsibility
for the class of 63. She probably spent more time on this reunion than
anyone else involved. She also hosted many meetings in her home and gave
me a bed for the night whenever I had to drive to Md. for a meeting. She
made all of those little favors, which were at your place settings on the
tables Saturday night. And if that werenít enough she then made dips and
snacks for the hospitality suite. There were many people in our class who
made cash donations when we realized that the funds from ticket sales
alone were not going to cover all of our expenses. Some people donated a
couple dollars towards postage and others made very substantial large cash
donations and because of those donations we did not have to pass the hat
on Saturday night to pay the bill. Those from 64 who donated included
Brenda Alterton, Jan Fruiterman, Peggi Green Lowe, Carolyn Jones Melius, Betsy Loftus Kingman, Patricia Muth
Sterquell, and Stephen Pouleris. There were also many who assisted on
Saturday night including Patricia Muth Sterquell, Betsy Loftus Kingman,
Pam Foringer Walters and her guest, Mable Geissler Smith and Kim Nelson
Burns who all took a turn at the registration table. A special thank you
to Stephen Pouleris for offering a blessing before dinner and for his
excellent impersonation of Admiral Peary later in the evening. And last
but not least thank you to Bob Jones for so generously stocking the
hospitality suite bar. All of you helped to make this event the success
that it was.
as to the future, many people have expressed a desire to have a 40th
reunion in 2004. I am willing to assist anyone who will volunteer to chair
a 40th reunion but I cannot do it myself. A few of you may be
retired by then and may have more time to take on this task. It will be
simpler than this one was since we will have most of the addresses this
time and wonít have to spend years just looking for people. And I can
offer lots of tips on what to do and what not to do based on my experience
with this one. So think about it and do consider volunteering to get
involved in a 40th reunion.
if all of you would please keep in touch with me either directly or
through the MSO on-line update form and let me know if you move, change
phone numbers or email addresses, then I will continue to keep an
up-to-date listing of our class. I will also continue to search for the
ďmissingĒ classmates and please do pass on any tips you might have as
to their whereabouts. If anyone took any photos over the reunion weekend
and would like to have them posted on the MSO, please pass them on to me.
If you have a digital camera or a scanner you can email photos to me at email@example.com.
If you donít have a scanner or a digital camera but have prints, let me
know by email and Iíll give you my mailing address. I have a scanner and
can scan them and then return them to you if you want them back. Iím
also hoping that you will all keep in touch with each other and that the
reunion memory booklet will be of assistance in that respect. If you
travel out of town, check the ďWhere Are They NowĒ listing on pages
130-131 in the booklet to see if you might be traveling to a location
where a classmate lives and give them a call. If you meet up with a
classmate, take some pictures and send them in to me along with a message
about any news you want to share and Iíll post it on the 1964 Info page
on the MSO. And speaking of the MSO, I find it sad that only 12% of those
who are listed have ever made donations to the MSO. It takes money to keep
it on-line, folks, and if you could all send in a donation from time to
time we can keep it alive. The
cash from the 50-50 lottery helps but we need more to keep this web page
going. The seeds of this
reunion were planted when the MSO came into existence. I doubt if we would
have ever had one, if interest had not been sparked by the Midnight Sun
On-line and all those terrific monthly newsletters. I hope those of you in
the Rocky Mountain Area will attend the regional reunion on September 23rd.
Those of you who donít have a regional alumni organization should think
about starting one. Let us know if you are interested and weíll get you
the names and addresses of alumni in your area. Letís all make an effort
to keep these renewed friendships alive. We share a special bond with one
another and that was never more apparent than at this reunion weekend. I
do hope Iíll be seeing all of you again real soon.
