Can You Believe Our 45th Reunion Has Come And Now Gone??
It has finally come to an end!! When we first started planning the 45th Class Reunion fifteen months ago, it seemed like it would never get here, but we can all rest now...it is over!! We will have one more meeting to finalize all the paper work and then it will be put away for a year or so. Then we start all over again for the 50th Reunion. If anyone has any suggestions for the next reunion we would love to hear from you. Two suggestions were made at the reunion, going on a short cruise or staying at a resort. We will take a vote on the top two requests. So do not wait until the last minute to make your suggestions!!
On Friday night, October 9th we had a mixer at J. Black's Feel Good Kitchen & Lounge at 110 Washington Blvd. in Houston TX. We were very impressed with the layout of the lounge that we had our get together in…the restaurant area and the lounge was on separate ends of the building. Thank you J Blacks for making our party a wonderful experience. We recommend the pizza, wings, nachos and quesadillas very highly…it was all so good!!! We had a very nice turn out of grads and guests and many memories were shared and many new ones were made!! And what a surprise, we had several very special guests visit with us...Joel Sturdivant (our Principal) and his lovely wife Elva, and a couple teachers Ms Donna Moore (English) and Ralph Holle (Science), who are Mr. & Mrs. Holle for all of you that did not know.
The turnout was good and everyone had a great time. Talking to our friends we discovered what varied lives we have led!! Some of us have traveled all over the world and there are the small few that have stayed close to home!! Lindy and I thought we would have the most grandchildren with 8, but Sandy Lewis beat us out with 10. Several have been fortunate enough to retire, but there are still many that have to get up early and face the traffic. Hopefully by our next reunion more will be enjoying themselves, retired and staying home from work and taking some great trips with their significant other. We had several travel a long way to attend, Seline (Denbow) Peters came in from Colorado, Mike Tumis drove down from the Chicago area, Billy Brown and his wife came in from California and many more from all over Texas!! After dinner we had a wonderful round of introductions so we could update our personal lives to let everyone know what we have been doing since graduation! When it was time for Billy Brown to take the floor he decided he wanted to preach for a while. Go Billy…Go Billy!! He was so enjoyable to listen to!! Several Reaganites even volunteered to give up their time so Billy could continue to talk. And Tim Elliot needs to make better friends with his yellow headed parrot!!
If you weren’t there and didn’t get to see and reminisce with your old friends and classmates you really missed out. We had a great time!!
Tons of pictures were made and as soon as the photographer has the CD’s put together I will be posting pictures at random here on the site. If you want to get your own CD they will be available from the photographer. I will keep you posted as to when and where you can get those pictures!!
As always the food was very good and there was plenty of it!! Thanks to Hearthstone and their wonderful and attentive staff.
Thanks again for all the efforts of the committee members. They worked hard and got all of the reunion events organized and ready to go. There is truly a lot of work involved in putting the reunion together. It is fun and frustrating but everything seems to fall into place at the very end!!

The reunion committee would like to thank one of our classmates, Paul Kwan for a wonderful donation he has made to the reunion efforts. He has generously given us a check for $1500.00 to apply to the continuing reunion efforts of our class. We are so thankful for his generosity.
Thank you Paul!!
Please keep Jim Nevins in your prayers for a rapid recovery, he had neck surgery on Wednesday October 15th. Jim is now recovering at home and itching to go surfing soon!!!
Remember Larry Eubanks with his ongoing medical issues. He continues to have problems related to his diabetes and his subsequent kidney transplant and he has had several strokes. He has gone home from the hospital and is now listed under Hospice Care. Please say some extra prayers for Larry's recovery and for his family and friends who are caring for him.

Thoughts To Ponder
Your kids are becoming you......but your grandchildren are perfect! Going out is good....Coming home is better! You forget names.... But it's OK because other people forgot they even knew you!!! You realize you're never going to be really good at anything....especially golf. The things you used to care to do, you no longer care to do, but you really do care that you don't care to do them anymore. You sleep better on a lounge chair with the TV blaring than in bed. It's called "pre-sleep". You miss the days when everything worked with just an "ON" and "OFF" switch. You tend to use more 4 letter words ... "what?"..."when?"... ??? Now that you can afford expensive jewelry, it's not safe to wear it anywhere!! You notice everything they sell in stores is "sleeveless"?!!! What used to be freckles are now liver spots. Everybody whispers. You have 3 sizes of clothes in your closet.... 2 of which you will never wear. But Old is good in some things: Old Songs, Old Movies, and best of all: OLD FRIENDS!!
The Reunion Committee has asked that this request be posted.
