Classmate News for June

Classmates Bill and Sandy Kerwin, out in Raleigh, NC, have been waxing nostalgic about our Class of '58, now that June is here and it has been almost 61 years since our graduation from High School.  Since their grandaughter is about to graduate herself from high school, Bill and Sandy's thoughts are of their own senior year.  They have come up with some memorable dates and wonder if you agree with them on the accuracy of their memory.  If you are moved to do so, you can send either Bill Kerwin or Sandy Canton Kerwin a message, right from this website, and let them know whether or not you share their recollection of the following dates:

5-3-57      Junior Prom

              11-23-57   Sadie Hawkins Dance

   12-21-57   Christmas Ball 

   5-10-58     Tropical Dance

5-30-58    Senior Prom

6-5-58    Graduation


The Webmaster can vouchsafe for the accuracy of June 5, 1958 for the date of our graduation; but he is uncertain about the other dates.



Our school chum Ronald "Swede" Swedlund has passed away.  Check out his developing obit notice at our link, "In Memory".

Classmate John Carlson has passed away.  Check out his developing obit notice at our link, "In Memory".

How's your memory after 78 years of age?  Below are four new pictures, all sent in by Classmate Kent Brothen, from his "high school warchest" so he says.  These pictures are also shown at the link "Who Are They? with some hint as to who they are.  If you can't ID your classmates from these pictures, go to that link.

Let's start with "Graduation Time"

Now, here's one from our high school days...

And one from Junior High...

And, finally, a picture from a Brookside Elementary classroom...

OK...So you couldn't identify anyone pictured?  What about Jeff Blomberg, Kent Brothen, Joe Gosnell, Neal Dalen, Bob Erickson, Bill Sincock, Sara Lenmark, Roberta Balkin, Diane Burger, Karen Schodde, Linda Whitney and Dick Arndt?  If you want another look, go to the Link at the left entitled "Who Are They? and take another look!








                Did you know? 

... that today is Marilyn Monroe’s Birthday (1926)? Norma Jeane Dougherty was an American actress, singer and model. In 1999, Monroe was ranked as the sixth greatest female star of all time by the American Film Institute. In the years and decades following her death, Monroe has often been cited as a pop and cultural icon as well as an eminent American sex symbol.

Today's Inspirational Quotes

"Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."

            -- Marilyn Monroe


"You'll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in."

            -- Mandy Hale
