wish to thank Gale Sensemen Privette and Candy Beck Burch and Carol Cotton
Hendricks for all the hard work and the much needed help for our reunion
this past weekend. All the
classmates that attended and I have talked to had a wonderful time and
hope that we have another one. I
want to especially thank Gale for helping the rest of us get the hard part
done and steering us in the right direction on how to accomplish this.
That all for now

just wanted to let anyone who is interested know that I have decided to
change careers. As of August,
I am now a financial services representative.
Most of my work will consist of selling life insurance, wealth
accumulation, and retirement planning.
If anyone living on the Eastern Shore, or across the bridge for
that matter, wishes to know more about the services I will be providing,
feel free to contact me at my
career change isn’t enough, I am also expecting my second child - due at
the end of the year. My son
is 15 months old now. It
should make for an interesting winter.
At this point, we don’t know the sex of the child.
Baby was not cooperative at the sonogram.
Time will tell how I manage a very new toddler, a newborn and a new
career. We’ll see.

going through the news letters and came on one from Ken Roseman ‘69. He
was commenting on how much he liked Cape May N.J. I just wanted to let him
know that I have loved C.M. since I was a kid. I have lived here since
graduation in ‘68. I came here for the summer as usual and met my
husband. We have been married 30yrs. We had 4 children (one who has left
us to live with the angels). We now also have 5 grandchildren.
Cape May is definitely not your big city, but once you live here
you never want to leave. In the winter it’s even great. Anyone who reads
this and remembers me will remember how much I always loved Cape May.
He’s right it’s a neat place and it’s not a bad place to
raise children. We have the
ocean and the bay, and on a clear night you can stand on the boardwalk and
see Rehobeth Beach Del. and if you live in Cape May city, from just about
anywhere in town you can lie in bed and listen to the ocean. How cool is
that? My life in Cape May has been great.

everyone I saw at the reunion, I have to say you all looked great and I
had I fantastic time!!!!!!! Well, didn’t you all look great. Let me see,
(kidding). The women all looked great, which was an overwhelming
consensus. The men, including moi, need to get back to the gym, or lay off
the ice cream (or beer).
it was great to see those who showed up, and I hope you respond to my
e-mail and keep in touch. Unfortunately, I have not been privy to many of
your cyber addresses. See ya, and best of luck,

Business Manager, Spouse: Tracey, Children: I have a 12 year old son,
Blake and a 19 mo. old son, Kyle.
High School: Since Peary, after 11 years of managing Consumer Loans,
repossessing cars and sitting in Bankruptcy Court for a couple of local
banks, I gave up my corner office along with my business suites to work as
the Business Manager for a local swimming pool service and supply company.
And I love it!! There’s nothing like throwing on a pair of jeans and
sneakers to go to work! The
casual environment allowed me to take my son Kyle to work with me for a
while after he was born, until he started to escape from my office.
I married my husband Tracey Reed (Rockville H.S.) in 1996. We’ve
lived in Germantown since 93, where Tracey is better known as “Coach”
to all of the young football players in the area.
He’s been coaching Beltway League football for SSA in Germantown
since 94. We have been busy with my son Blake and all of his sports!
He started with football in 94 and then came soccer, basketball,
wrestling, ice hockey and a little bit of lacrosse (what a jock!).
His latest thing is Motor cross!
Almost 11 years after Blake was born, we had Kyle! Born in December
of 98, weighing in at 10 lbs. 14.5
oz.! No joke! He’s an active little guy and he keeps us on our toes!
Plans: To stay happy! Have fun, and continue to enjoy my family and
friends! I hope to get in
touch with some old friends too!
Teacher: Mr. Hill...What an awesome teacher!

connection with the REPHS Homecoming 2000 Reunion, I am working on a
“talking book” project with Mr. Gibbs.
He is doing the reading. After
much effort, I was able to obtain from the publisher a very limited
permission to do the book—only 50 copies were authorized—and I do not
have permission to advertise it on the Web.
So, in order to be able to write this article for the MSO
newsletter, I cannot give you the name of the book, but it’s a familiar
title. I must depend on word
of mouth and individual e-mails to get the word out.
It isn’t the easiest task in the world, but so far about 60% of
the copies are spoken for.
permission from the publisher the day before the Homecoming 2000 Reunion
last month, and, for those of you who were there at the Saturday brunch
where I announced the project, you already know the details.
For those of you who were not at the Reunion, and whom I have not
been able to find through e-mail, please contact me if you are interested
in purchasing a copy. They
are $40 each. All proceeds
(after paying the recording studio) are going to the Alumni Association.
Thank you, Mr. Gibbs, for donating your time and talent.
project so far is moving along nicely.
For the 30+ people who have sent checks in already, Thank You.
For those who have not yet sent in your checks, the sooner the
better. For those of you who
would like more information, please e-mail me at email@example.com
and I will give you the details. Regards,

asked if this event was worth it. Well, it was great to see so many
familiar faces. I also had
the opportunity to have some great discussions with alumni and teachers
from all the classes. I met
and worked with some great people who put forth some great effort in
insuring the best event possible. In
some cases, I talked with people that I haven’t really talked to since
elementary school. I hugged more people in three days then I’ve probably
hugged in 43 years. The Peary crowd is certainly a huggable group.
Mr. Clarke would be proud. If
there were one regret, it would be that so many people were searching for
people who didn’t attend this event.
I sincerely hope that in the future, alumni who couldn’t make it
for one reason or another, make a point of attending, because you would be
surprised of how missed you were. In
fact, I overheard some great comments between some alumni who haven’t
seen or heard from each other in over 30 years.
The smiles, the hugs, and in some cases the tears, between old
friends, made it easy to answer that question, “Yes, it was all worth
