Sorry to report that I will miss the 50 year reunion. 

I did get back home in White Bear last week to celebrate my father's 99th birthday.

Here is a picture of my dad, me, wife Karen, daughter Alexandra, my sister and 2 of 4 brothers plus 2 inlaws and 2 cousins. I hope I am recognized (in red)

Dear Class Reunion Committee,

Bravo Zulu on a job well done. The entire weekend of events exceeded my expectations.

It was absolutely great to see my classmates and their significant partners.

Again, thank you Committee Members for your hard work and due diligence, it was worth waiting fifty years to enjoy. 

Here's hoping, I see everyone and a few more at our 60th. - Duff

Hi, I too want to thank all that were involved in the planning of this event. I just came to the picnic but that was so fun, but missed many class mates who did not get to the picnic. The picnic was, as my one and only 7 year old grandson says "awesome". Thank you, Steve J.

I delighted and surprised, many of the planning meetings were a little chaotic, but in the end failure was not an option. Many thanks to all who gave many hours to assure success. I bow to them all.

High praise for the committee.
We are glad everyone was so pumped
About 50 years out of school.
Now it seems like a blink if an eye.
Back in school we never thought we
Would live to be this old.
Congrats to us.

Had a great time at our class reunion.  Good to see people from the past.  This time of year, summer, always makes me think of graduation and summer vacation that we used to enjoy.   Driving a school bus for White Bear amplfies these memories even more.

And to all the reunion commitee, fabulous job!

The reunion was a great success because of the awesome committee, I was humbled to be a part of it. Even better was watching all the "the re-connections" over the weekend. The laughter, the hugs, the conversations...INCREDIBLE!. Thanks again to the committee.

Yes!  Kudos to the organizers!  It was great seeing and catching up with old friends.   

And, thank you for including me.  Even though my parents moved away in Aug. of '67 and I missed my senior year there, I always considered myself a WBHS student having gone to school there since 7th grade and lived there during those difficult teenage years, which were especially hard on me being an immigrant.   

If you are passing through or near Pittsburgh, do get in touch - my husband and I will show you around.  Pittsburgh is far from the old smoky town that it once was and there's lots to do.

Catherine (Cathy) Blumenthal (Boyd)

Glad you could reconnect.
If I am ever in Pittsburgh
I will take you up on it.

This is late, I have been on a two week vacation getting my home in Iowa ready to sell and then on to Washington Island, Wisconsin for continuing education.  The reunion was great.  Thank you so much to the committee for all the hours and hard work.  It was good to see so many classmates.  I look forward to getting together again!

Glad you could make it.
You are a busy lady.
Safe travels.

Words can not express the AWESOME job the committee did to Celebrate our 50 Year Reunion!! It was impossible to chat with everyone. What a great turn out and not short on laughs. Everyone looked wonderful and great to share stories. I’m very proud of where I was raised and everyone that grew up with me. I’m going to try to make it back for Manitou Days on a regular basis. So fun. Stay Healthy everyone till our paths cross again❤️❤️🥂
