The Class of '65 turns 65

After you start PLAY, remember to hover over the Progress Bar at bottom on video. It will let you pause for longer viewing, plus it will allow you to view video full screen.

While enjoying the memories of our 65th Birthday Party...don't forget we have another milestone party coming up in 2017 as we celebrate together turning 70.

Celebrating together

Our "distinquished" birthdays for oldest, youngest,and

closest (to 8/4/12) do the cake cutting honors!

Classmate, Rich Gallagher delighted our memories with a display of "antique" toys that didn't look so "antique" to us!  Ha!

One after another, we happlily learned how many of us shared birthday dates with other classmates.  "Birthday Buddies" was just another one of the events that marked our special birthday celebration.

THANKS

A special thank you goes out to classmate, Jim Jackson, who provided great music the entire evening as our own personal DJ.  The Pastor giving our dinner blessing was none other than our own classmate, Rev. Terry Parker.  The wonderful toy display was shared by classmate, Richard Gallagher.    Donations were frequent and generous to help defray the costs of a party that kept on "getting bigger and better"!  Special thanks to donations from Carolann (Young) Fosco, Mike Bailey, Jenny (Till) & Dave Schoewe and Jean (Unkrich) Puckrin.  And the list goes on.... classmates from in-town and out-of-state alike chipped in to haul, decorate, set-up and take-down. It was fun working with old friends and making new friends in our class.

Thanks for all the feedback from the party!  Here's a sampling of emails classmates are sending in to us after the party.  We love the communication.  Keep it up with ideas, updated information, and just to stay connected!
