No one has yet appeared to have used this venue, so thought I would try.  I just want to add my kudos to Barbara Bauer's to all those who worked on the reunion.  What a blast!  I don't know if our class was special, or it had more to do with time and place, but you guys are awesome.  It seemed so easy to pick up from where we last left each other.  I commented to my table mates at brunch on Sunday about the level of noise in the room.  People still had much to say to each other.  I was sad when all was over, but am anticipating the next one.  Some of us discussed that we should have a 55th and I am RSVPing now.

Like Barbara, I also hope that those who did not come will get some sense of what a great party it was and join us for the next. 

And in the same vein, a big thank you to Dean Kinsey for this website, which will continue for some time.  The connections made over the week-end can be sustained and renewed, and susequent get togethers will be more easily facilitated.

So thank you all for your friendship. And thank you again to the committee that obviously worked long and hard to make a great event.  The attention to detail was incredible and all was very well planned.

Until next time . . . .

I want  to second Karen's thoughts.  The committee did a great job, and it was simply amazing to see everyone.  Getting this old fart to stay up until 2 am talking with long lost classmates was no small achievement, given my normal 9pm bed time.  I really believe we had an exceptional class.  Thanks to all of you for lifting my spirits.

 I couldn't have said it better.  Thanks SO much to all of you committee people for all your hard work in putting everything together.  Having worked on the 25th reunion committee, I KNOW how much work it is (but also how much FUN it is, too!).

PS, my husband Mark had a great time, too!

I just want to say this was my first reunion, living in Alaska and all, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. A BIG thankx to all the committee who worked on putting the 50 th together. You are to be commended for a job very well done. I too hope we have a 55th. I'll be there, with my wife this time.

Although Adriana and I have expressed our thanks to all the committee for a super 50th I want to take time here to thank Dean Kinsey (and any helpers he might have had) for doing all the time consuming work  putting together this really great web site.   I'm sure many of us are looking at it from time to time even if we are not updating it with personal information.

Very thoughtful job and well done.  Thanks Dean.

Well, I just came across this page. What a pleasant surprise!

I also enjoyed the preliminaries during the many months prior to the actual reunion interacting with so many of our classmates. Thank you for all the kudos...everyone was a great sport at all times! As for a 55th, well, hopefully that would be a no-brainer? That means everything would just be easier to set up and even more fun to do! Hope to see you all here in 2016.  It was fun!

Wow! Here it is Valentine's Day 2013 and I am seeing this page for the first time . What fun! Thanks Dean!!
Some of us are having a big birthday this year. Blessings & good health to you all.
A bunch of us gathered at Judy & Bob's beautiful beach house in Ocean City for what turned out to be a wonderful week- end. Lynn & Steve were up from Florida.
My mother passed away in Dec at 104 & Judy, Lynn, Dori, Carolyn treated me to a wonderful lunch & greeted me with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. It all meant so much to me. I feel blessed to have such precious, thoughtful friends.
Take care all. Stay in touch.

Hey Gang we don't seem to be getting many responses to the Beached @ 75 Birthday Celebration . Let me tell you a little about the Ocean Place Resort and Spa . It's a high end destination hotel with many amenities located right on the beach , with real palm trees , Tiki Bar , oceanview pool and a spa for your old aching bones ! Check out their website , . Also nearby are many other hotels and motels which the people at the Ocean Place front office will help you book . Let's get this going !

Also please disregard the rumor that is going around . Apparently I heard that Ted Marshall , George Hilt ,Bob Reese and John Schwartz are telling all their friends that they are not going because they have had many bad experiences over the years with the sharks at the  Central Jersey beaches . Well let me tell you that I found out from a very reliable source that they were referring to LOAN SHARKS !!!!! So don't worry , come and enjoy !

Ann and I are hoping to come.  As for Ted, Bob, and the rest,they must be aging; they used to jump sharks all the time.  

See you in August

hey gang Linda and I are planning to come, and if we can drag our butts all the way to NJ from Arizona it would be a shame if you locals can not make it and make this momentous occation a great success.

Well, since I just bought a non-refundable airline ticket, I’ll be there.  Hopefully, it won’t be an “intimate party!”

Bob and I just put our check in the mail for the Birthday Bash.   We have plenty of palm trees here in Florida, we aren't coming to see them -- but we are hoping to see lots of our MHS classmates.  Please come too!            Sandy Morrow Pinnel

I am also looking forward to the bash! The 50th was so much fun that I am expecting this to be even better. See you all in August

I noticed John forgot to include "Metamucil on the Rocks" so I'll have to bring my own I guess.

Looks like the 75 birthday shore bash was fun, sorry Adriana and I could not attend. Thanks everyone for the

pictures you took. (And John, if you think I'm going to wear a speedo on the beach so everyone can die laughing, you have another think coming). Don

Three Cheers for the Reunion Committee and their hopes for a 61st reunion in October '22!  It makes me happy just to think about it, and I will definitely attend, God willing. :)
