What dance was your most memorable and why?

I would say Senior Prom was mine. A group of us went to Angela Byrd's house. I had never sat at such a big table and was intrigued by the lazy susan in the middle of the table. They also had a walk-in refrigerator.

I don't really remember the dance.... Just Angela's house.

I think we also went midnight bowling. My date was shorter than me.

Hi Everyone:
I just got home from our reunion meeting. We are excited for August. However, we are needing your help.

First.... we need you to check out the list of classmates to see who has not registered. If you see someone that you know and they haven't registered... please encourage them to. We want to reach as many people as possible. Some people are concerned about privacy issues. Tell them they can secure their profile and select the level of privacy they want.

Second... if you have photos from high school events (or even before or after) that you would like to share, either on the website or for the reunion, please scan and email them to me. Please use a bmp format. We are looking for pictures and memorabilia to use for the reunion. Please let us know who is in the photos that you send.

Third...If you can't make it to the reunion, but would like to send a message, photo, or video clip, we would like to use them to share with everyone who is attending. (You know... just like at the Oscars). Maybe you have a special memory you would like to share.

Fourth... We are tentatively planning a pre-reunion get together. We want to meet at the High School and take some pictures of all of us in the school... like in the Pit. We will then head over to Fizzys and do some catching up. We are hoping this will get people motivated and excited about the reunion. Right now, the tentative date is Friday, February 26th.

Don't forget to keep checking the reunion page for updates. We need all of you to help make this the best reunion ever!

Looking forward to seeing you at the pre-reunion meet on the 26th!

Thanks again. I'll try to scan some pictures, I know I have a lot somewhere.

Julie et ALL, The pre-reunion event was a blast! It was great fun to see so many of us attend the evening! I would vote for another pre-reunion activity. Thank you Liz and Julie for organizing. Angela

I've heard comments about why people don't want to come to the reunion:

1. I'm too fat.
2. My high school experience wasn't that great.
3. I won't know anyone.
4. Yada Yada Yada.....

Well... here's the

Top 10 Reasons to Attend Our Reunion:
1. You look NOTHING like you did in High School.
2. You look EXACTLY like you did in High School.
3. You no longer care what anyone thinks about you.
4. You just bought a 2010 Convertible Mustang and want to arrive in style.
5. You think reality TV is entertaining, try a class Reunion.
6. You won’t have to lie about your age.
7. You can't remember anything from Graduation.
8. You’ll laugh & cry with old friends, even ones you don’t remember.
9. If you are not there we will still talk about you.
10. Humor us; as a committee we are a bunch of diehards who think everyone will show up!

Does anyone know if Mr. Toutant is still with us?
My brother, who graduated in 1974 named him as his favorite teacher recently in an email to me.

Greetings Everyone! 

We need your contributions!!! The Reunion Committee is constructing an "In Memory" tribute of classmates who are deceased.  We are seeking submissions of fond memories, "short" stories, humorous recollections, and photos of our classmates.  Please send these submissions by way of posting on the In Memory site.  You can also send them to Julie Fender Shepard too.  Thankyou for your assistance.

Hey folks.

I spoke with Greg Pangborn last night.  We would like to do another casual get together.  Maybe a few beers and some fun.  It was great to see everyone at the pre-event and we think everyone would get a kick out of another get together.  Your excuse to do this is picking each others brain for folks that have not comitted to the reunion.  

Greg and I were thinking the next couple/three weeks after work or on the weekend.  Any and all suggestions for location and times are welcome.   You can contact me at 509-475-5833 (cell) or email  JEADWS@AOL.COM if needed.  Or contact Gregg at 509-991-3873

Lets do this.  Greg and I both feel that no matter how far removed from each other, we are all family.

Hi Everyone:

Can you believe it... our reunion will be here in less than 3 months!  Through the recent gatherings we have each enjoyed reconnecting and catching up about our current lives as well as reminiscing about high school, college, past reunions and first loves. 

I have heard from some people that they didn't enjoy high school and there really isn't anyone that they would like to see.  That's sad.  I have made some new friends while working on the reunion and have gotten to know classmates I didn't know in school as well as spouses. 

If you have been thinking that coming to the reunion would be a waste of time, I hope you will think again.  I promise you... you will have a good time, you will remember memories that make you laugh, and you will make a new friend. 

And if you can't come to the reunion, I hope you will use this site to say hello to a few friends, share a memory about someone who has passed on and boast about your spouse, your kids and your grandkids.  Keep your information current because there will be future functions that will be more often than the reunion.

Hey Julie,

I agree, if you haven't been you will be surprised at how much fun the reunion will be.  Our 20th was great and we had the best time with old friends(Mary and Michael Wigen) and Ginie Puleo)!  Even my spouse who is not from Washington had a great time!  Just ask he and Mike about their tour of Gonzaga and the Boat show at the Courdelane boat show!  So I would encourage all to come who can and you will connect with new and old friends. 

Take care and thanks for all your efforts!

Hi All-

I will have to be honest, I was hesitant about attending our 30th Class Reunion (I only went on the cruise at CDA ID on the 10 year Reunion and missed the 20 year Reunion) but after seeing some of my classmates at the Pre-Reunion event,  everyone was nice. I wish I could of stayed longer and mingled a little bit more with everyone. After 30 years I am sure we have all changed and grown up now and have our families.  I look forward to seeing everyone.  Time sure flies fast.  Please let me know if their are anymore get togethers as I would like to do that again!

Take care!

I saw you in the 5th grade Mrs. Ingram class picture on the Do You Remember? page.

I hope you can come to the reunion. It's going to be great seeing everyone.

It was so wierd looking at the class picture for Ms. King/Ms. Lukich 5th grade Whitworth Ele. That was MY class, but why I'm not in the picture, I don't know. We had moved back that summer. I noticed Bob Quackenbush isn't in that picture, either. I thought he and Mitch were best pals in that class. I got 5th disease in 5th grade and was out for 2 weeks, so I might have been out of school when the pictures were taken. Thanks for sharing, whoever put that one in there. I have one from middle school - 6th grade-- I'll put it on if I can find it.

Hi Candy-

Yes, I will definately be at the Reunion and look forward to seeing you and everyone again. 

I like where we can look at the photos of classmates and their families.  I can recognize most of them, they look great and the same, only a little older. 

Have a safe trip to Spokane and will talk to you soon!

Oh my goodness, I just realized some day we're going to have an "80 meets 80" party! AAAHHHHhh, I'm not ready for that one. :) Candy Gremler

Gitte Hansen was actually considered to be in the class of '79. You can find her picture in the 79 yearbook. She lives in Denmark. Her husband runs a furniture company, and she has a facebook page. Search Birgitte Tange Ohlsen to find her. She and I planned to meet up when my family was living in The Netherlands in 2006, but we were not able to mesh our schedules. They were actually visiting the US while we were traveling to Sweden. I know she would love to see the class website, so I have sent that to her, as well. It is truly a small world. Blessings, Candy

Does anyone know the whereabouts of our 1981 classmate, Michael Stueve? I lost track of him in 1990. He was working as an architect in Portland, Oregon, then. Thanks, Candy Gremler

Candace Little (Gremler)

If anyone is interested, I found Michael Stueve ('81) through Linked In. He's with an architectural firm in Portland, Oregon. But I cannot seem to contact him through the website. Does anyone have his email address?
