New Photo Album Added

Hi all! The reunion is long past and we are all getting ready for the holidays... To help keep some of the reunion memories alive, I added a new photo album with Debbie Latta's (professional photographer) candid shots taken during Happy Hour. Check it out.

I'm still hearing from old classmates that were not at the reunion. Beverly Caywood, the main organizer of our 20th reunion, found this website (thanks to Dave Shrum (20th reunion committee member)... Bev said she wished she had known about reunion, but is all in for the next one.

Deb Hoffman is another that missed the reunion but found this website... even added a profile on the Classmate page. Check it out.

Marianne Sinclar found me on FaceBook thanks to Barb Norcross. Visit - there is a little reunion going on there... I'm "friends" with Marianne, Barb, Merle Ladd, Susan Baker, Deb Hoffman, Priscilla Walker, Kathy Hintz and some others... check it out and add us as friends! Marianne looks great (based o...

Order Memory Book & Photo Now!

Don't get too excited... we haven't finished the Memory Book or had prints made of the photo yet... but we are making progress! 
Being novices at organizing a reunion, we missed one important thing... gathering mailing address and phone numbers. I put a form on the site "Order Memory Book" so we can gather your info. to put in Memory Book (with your permission) and to mail out Memory Book and Photo to you. Please click on the link and fill in your information. Thanks!

Looks like Leslie Cohn Wilson, Mike & Margaret Blume, and Mark & Gloria Myers got together in San Francisco last week for a Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. Leslie sent in 2 photos which I put in the Classmate Photo Album.

Hope this economic crisis isn't putting a damper on some of you retirees - Rick Bartlett, Tod Theros, Mike Kahn, Jimmy Perrin, and others! Fill out the Poll on this website... let us know if it is affecting you.

Seems like yesterday... 
Slowly getting up to speed for Reunion Part 2. Which is putting together Memory Book and getting prints made of group photo. Thanks to those of you who have posted pictures in the photo albums! Jimmy Perrin sent me a CD with pictures - I will put up soon (that's what I said about the McBride's photos of Potomac Elementary classes!)... Now if I was retired like Rick Bartlett, Todd Theros, Jimmy Perrin, and Mike Kahn, things may get done a little faster. :-)

Keep sharing your pictures... still looking for videos... also seeing if I can get the slide show played at reunion on the website... pretty large file. Keep checking back to see what's new here. Leave comments on this blog or on Message Board.

I saw a lot of digital camera's firing away at the reunion... we all would love to see some more photos of that weekend! 

Several ways to share:
1. Upload them to this website - put in appropriate album. Click on Photo Album to get started.
2. Upload to a web photo site such as Kodak, Shutterfly, Photobucket - then email me the link to your online album - I'll post the link on the website.
3. Email me some of your shots - I will post on the website. Make sure to reduce the file size to email size... email or call me and I will help walk you through the process if unfamiliar.
4. Mail me your camera memory card - or burn images to CD and mail me the CD. I will mail your memory card back to you.

Let's see what you got! Also looking for any video shot during the reunion!

My email is (Bobby Richardson).

Still here!

I've been remiss in updating this website... still playing catch up with my day job work! More pictures have been uploaded - check out the different albums. Mugzy McBride (and Larry McBride) just sent me a bunch of Potomac Elementary School pictures - I'll set up a new album and call it something clever like Potomac Elemenatary School pictures and upload shortly... see if you can pick out anyone!

Memory Book is just starting... took a little decompression time after the reunion. Something to look forward to getting in the mail in a couple months!

I've heard from Johnny "Curly" Webster and Claudia Ogle Cavallini... both regret not being able to attend but enjoy seeing the pictures on the website. They say "Hi!" to everyone. Jack & Jeannie Odbert Schulze also say "Hi!" and sorry they couldn't make it... but had a wedding to attend.

Also heard from Malon Metz - who was disappointed he found out too late about reunion. He lives in Georgia.

Upload your pictures or email...

We did it!!

Don't know about you, but I had a blast!! It was so good to see everyone. My only complaint was there wasn't enough time to visit with everyone!!

Thanks again to all the donors and committee people and others that pitched in to help pull this off! And to Larry Jeweler for being there for us back then and now!

Start sharing your pictures! Pick your best shots and upload to the Photo Albums. (make sure to chose the right album.) You can also email me your photos, or mail on CD. We will pick the best of the best for the Memory Book!

Wow! Almost time!!

Anticipation may be the word! Will I recognize people when I walk in the hotel? Will people recognize me? I'll probably be going up to strangers saying, "Churchill?" Maybe we should have a hand signal to avoid embarrassment.  Like pull on your left earlobe. That way, if you see an old person walking toward you, you pull on your ear, if they do the same you stop and make introductions. Ha! may work... but only if you read this...

Rain Plan B: If it is raining, picnic is being moved to Katie Radford Gorman's home - which is near Seneca Creek Park. I will email everyone her cell # to use if it is raining and you need info. I will also try and post last minute updates here. If it only looks like rain - picnic at park as planned. There is large covered area just in case.

Picnic is FREE (thanks to our donors!) and all are invited... even if you can not make the evening gala, you are still invited to come to the picnic. Food and drinks will be provided. If you want to grill, we will provi...

Late Ticket Purchases...

Hate to be a bad guy... and we want you to come... even if you just found out about the reunion or did not purchase your ticket by deadline.... But

If you did not purchase your ticket by the 6/19 deadline and still wish to attend, please notify us ASAP using Contact Us on menu to the left. There may be a surcharge due to caterer charging us more for late changes and budgeted contract commitments.

Our final budget is based on total ticket sales as of 6/19/08. Ticket prices are subsidized by our generous donors. We may not have the funds to subsidize late  ticket purchases after 6/20/08 due to contract commitments made based on sales as of 6/20. Full ticket price is $140. It is important to contact us ASAP if you have not purchased your ticket so we can determine our budget and if we have any funds left to subsidize late ticket purchase or if full price will apply.

We apologize if you did not receive our previous emails sent out regarding this or if you did not visit this website pri...

So what's everyone wearing to the reunion?

I've had several people asking, what is attire for Sat. night? 
Answer is dressy casual. No ties!... well if you want to wear a tie you can... for guys; slacks, shirt, polo shirt, optional sport coat. For the ladies; summer dress, slacks/skirt & blouse, anything comfortable... The goal is to be relaxed and comfortable and have fun!

What is the parking arrangement at hotel?
Another question I've gotten. The hotel offers valet parking for $20 per day. (Sounds like a lot to me!)... I called hotel and they said there are public parking lots near hotel that offer metered parking... you need quarters. I was told, after 10:30 PM Fri. thru Mon. morning, parking is free at the meters. So you may want to bring A LOT of quarters to at least take you up to 10:30 PM if coming over Friday for the informal gathering at the hotel bar. I am assuming that Saturday night should be free in the Public Parking metered lots. Or just pay $20 and have hotel park your car. (You can call hotel to verify)

Donations continue to come in - thanks John Madert who mailed in a donation check today... and Frank Kelly who mailed his check last week... and to ALL who have donated!!
