I have lived in New England since 1966 so do not see many high school friends. My husband and I live in a retirement village here in South Kingstown RI but still work part time. We enjoy our 3 children and 5 grandchildren who live in Massachusetts. I am a church secretary, volunteer at Habitat for Humanity and am active in community events.
It was a pleasure seeing you again at our 50th reunion! You did an AMAZING job, yea AWSOME job, doing the name tags for our reunion. I will treasure mine for many years to come. God bless you and your family. All the best until the next reunion!
Thanks, Penny.....you're looking great too ! Why, it's only been 50 years almost, since we've seen each other.....I love the photos of your family and the sea ! I'm looking forward to the 50th next year as it should be awesome !
Roger is in Redhook, NY. He's been married a long time and has had 2 kids both grown now. I lost track of him after he had enlisted; but later we connected. Sounds as if he has had a wonderful marriage and kids.
I had a son by my first marriage, and now 3 grandkids, though recently he has decided to be quite judgmental over my divorcing his mother.
Edelle, my wife, had one child and two adopted children-now also all grown but there is only one grandchild.
I continued art throughout my life-painting, with degrees and such and about 25 yrs teaching art at all levels in the Miami area. I really never particularly enjoyed Florida and left the state when my son went to college. Since, I have lived in Spokane briefly, Boulder for about 10 yrs, Arkansas for 7 yrs, and now Minneapolis. I enjoyed Arkansas as we lived in the mountains, off the pavement, on 16 acres, with a meadow and garden.
We were, are, rather progressive for that area, and now, though I miss the close up natural surroundings, we're enjoying Minneapolis. Edelle, my wife, grew up here. And we found a nice bungalow home near a wonderful parks, lightrail, bus, and bike trails.
Sounds like your area is quite beautiful too. I could picture you teaching your grandchild how to twirl the baton. I was always amazed at how you could throw it up so high and catch it with a twirl. I bet even back then that you would be a great mom.
I'm not on facebook. Just haven't gotten into it; but I'll check in here once in a while, or you can email if you like at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Penny, I'm sorry that breakfast didn't work out last year. There is a group that meets at the Original Pancake House on Northlake Blvd in the Winn Dixie shopping center on the corner of Military Trail the 2nd Tuesday of every month. We went for the first time in March and had a really good time talking to all the alumnae from different years. Brenda Booth was the only one from our class there. The next one is on April 12th at 8:30 AM. Will you be coming down again in April? Let me know. Joanie
I'll combine your two nice notes. I visited Moonstone in '86 after reading about it in the Guide to Naturist Beaches. Great folks at all times. Brenda doesn't have an email
any more. Her phone is 561 547 2819. We need you to help plan for our 50th. I still haven't gotten over knocking down the last library. Best, Steve
PS Great looking family.
Penny, Marian was one of my most valuable employees when I owned my bridal shop in WPB. She essentially grew up in the store. We have remained close, not business associates, but heart felt friends. I made Marian's wedding gown and veil when she and Rob married. I do get to see them in January and February when I go stay in WPB. I always spend a few days with them on the way up and then back to CT. The house is fabulous~ so much room!
It's nice to have mutual friends.
