Update - Post Reunion August 3, 2007

Thank you everyone for your messages in our blog. (Click on the comments following each entry to read those messages.) We also have received some nice emails and have posted highlights from some of them at the end of this entry.

We will issue a new Program Book/Directory next Monday, August 6. Since the reunion, we have received more than 30 new entries, plus pictures. We will ask again for contributions to the directory when we issue the new edition and expect to re-distribute it one more time later this month. You can add an entry by going to our website: and then clicking on the menu choice, "Be part of our directory"

Thank you again. Here's those email highlights:

Jay Ziv:
Congratulations on a great reunion. …Thanks for a great time.

Mary Engelman Hathorn:

thanks so much did a great job, it was lots of fun, really enjoyed saturday night and seeing my backyard in the movies. Joachim is actually coming next week for a visit and that just wouldn't have happened but for this past weekend.

Stan Katz:
You guys (and the whole committee) did a great job - a thankless job.
The reunion (imho) was a MONSTER success.

Maxine Levine Souza:
The Committee did a wonderful job planning the events, and John & I thoroughly enjoyed both evenings! Since we don't live too far away (Buffalo Grove), maybe I could help with the next one!

Chuck Dawe:
Everyone seemed to have a super time. I know I did.

Ronnie Jo Sokol:
I really enjoyed spending Friday evening with you at Bertucci's. Wonderful tournout; friendly and warm! Thanks for all your hard work.

Roy (Andy) Simon:
Thanks to everyone who made our 40th reunion such a great event. It was well worth the trip from Long Island. I look forward to our 50th.

Vicki Sherwin Anoff

Dear Ones, So enjoyed seeing all of you. It was really worth the trip.

Raya (Ronda Server) Wasser:
Aching to be there – happy to be getting tidbits of news, and WOW just listened to Charlie’s song!!! Please include this in the “stuff” – I’m attaching both the word document and PDF format. Thanks and kudos to all for an amazing reunion! (Click here to read the PDF file.)

Lee Barnett:
I had a lot of fun….Far too often it’s a thankless task, buy you guys (committee) did a great job.

Mike Wolf:
Thanks again for putting together a spectacular few days. What a great time!

What a wonderful weekend! My congratulations to the committee for doing a great job. If I'm not living full time in Mexico by the next one, I promise I'll help out. And if I am south of the border I will issue an open invitation to my classmates to come visit. For now, the invitation is open to get in touch and come visit here in the Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago. For those of you who left in 1967, the closest comparison would be Old Town back then–a very diverse community, lots of restaurants and shops. We love it and would love to show it to all of you. So email me at Shure

You guys did an incredible job - I didn't even know Friday night wasn't as planned! Although we seemed more interested in naps and muscle relaxers than the sex and drugs of our younger years, it was a fantastic time. Maybe you should plan one more often??
Come visit me in Birmingham, Al!

Thank you for caring enough to put the reunion together (and thank you, Maya, for getting me to come!). I met so many wonderful people that shared "High School" with me..... (and got reaquainted with many more). I am only sorry that there wasn't more time to sit and really visit. But, if any of you are in the Los Angeles area, please call/write! (love to hear from you even if you aren't coming to Los Angeles) It was really worth the trip. So many things, long forgotten, are again part of a collective memory. Looking forward!

A great web site and blog.
You have set a bar for the
68 class to attain.

Great Job to Charlie Cochran
on his song.

BTW, The Classes of 40-44
still get together several times a year. Something for us to look forward to when we are in our 80's
