"Classmate News" from September 2017

This just in!

From:  Dan Geldert
Email:  dangeldert58@yahoo.com


Hi everybody: Just a note to let you know that I will be conducting the Minnetonka Concert Band (adult community band) on Sunday, September 24, 3pm in the Minnetonka High School Auditorium. Kent Nichols and Ross Legrand will be in the audience as usual. Why not join them. It would be sooooo special to see you there. This is an excellent group that I am privileged to conduct. I guarantee you will have a most enjoyable afternoon as we present a program entitled "Windspiration". The concert I am conducting is FREE!  Hope to see you there for a "mini-reunion."

WebNote: The Minnetonka High School is at 18301 Highway 7,           Minnetonka, MN 55345.

AFS student Outi Jarventaus Oinas, of Finland, has changed her address.  She has moved from Lapland to a suburb of Helsinki.  Should you wish to write her a letter, use this new address: 

Outi Oinas, Eino Leinontie 10 A, Tuusula, Finland, 04310.

 

Life starting to get you down?

Don't fret: The 60th Class Reunion is just a calendar year away!

 

News Flash!!! 

The "Ladies Who Lunch,"  an informal group of ladies from the SLP Class of '58, who have been lunching together for many years, have just informed the webmaster that there is going to be a 60th Class Reunion for our class.  That's great news, indeed.  Many have been wanting to know if it's really going to happen.

Further, it will be those ladies who will plan the entire event.  Stay Tuned: Announcements will be coming in the weeks ahead to everyone via either email or snail mail with details.  We believe it will occur sometime next year in the summer months of 2018.  So stay healthy, get a haircut and lose some weight.  (At least that's my plan!)

                           

 

 
 
 
       
 

 

                Did you know? 
 ... that today is National Gymnastics Day? Gymnastics have been in existence since the 5th century B.C. The "father of modern gymnastics" is Friedrich Ludwig Jahn of Germany. In the late 1700s, he developed the side bar, the horizontal bar, the parallel bars, the balance beam, and jumping events. Take some time out today to learn about this classical sport.

Can you recognize this photo?

For the next several months a photo from decades ago will be posted below.  You should be tempted to try and identify the person in the photo.  Write down their name.  Some will be easy; others far more difficult.  But this exercise will be a fun one for you to check out every couple of weeks to see if your memory is still intact and working!  The name of the person in the photo will be posted the next time a new photo is shown.

Last August 25th's photo was of: Alfred Hitchcock, circa 1920s, (hope you guessed correctly!)

Here is the September 10th photo from the 1930s (this one should be easier):

            How to Make an Emergency Lamp from a Soda Can

Did you know you can make an emergency lamp from little more than an aluminum soda can? It's true! And it's a good skill to learn, just in case.

While every house should have at least a few emergency supplies stashed away, you can't always guarantee that things will be as they should be.

So if the lights ever go out and you find yourself without an emergency lantern or candles, don't freak out! To light up the night, all you need is a soda can, a little vegetable oil, and an old cotton sock. Here's how to do it in case you need it:
