St Louis Park
Class of 58, The Luckiest Generation

      Welcome to the

St Louis Park Senior High School 

 Class Of 1958 Web Site.

Home of the Orioles!

This is a Website devoted to the St. Louis Park High School Class of 1958.  It is intended for those Classmates who graduated from this place and time.  It is intended to be informative, inspiring, and nostalgic with memories of our time in the 1950s, including the music we loved and those we sat next to in class.

For music to accompany your viewing of this Home Page, click here:

 

 

 

 

We want to keep in touch with you.  If you change your email address, or mailing address or phone number, be sure to go to MEMBER FUNCTIONS  and make those changes under "Edit Contact Info." 

 

 

Let's all hope 2021 is a far better year for us Super Seniors!

Remember: Wear your mask and get the vaccine when it's offered.

*********************************

The Website Administrator has some cyber-gifts for you all during this Holiday Season and right into the New Year.  They can be found in the link at the left entitled, "Roger's Holiday Gifts To You," (second from the top).

**********************************************

If you are going to be all alone this New Year's Eve, or just staying safe with just your partner, and need some nostalgic review of your teen years in the 1950s,  to remember those of us who still love you, then get ready to enjoy these

January 2021 News

We are saddened to report the passing of classmate Robert (Bob) Cady.  We have posted a Notice in our "In Memory" section on this website.

 

**********************************************

You have all been hearing a lot on the news lately about the new vaccines that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for distribution to all Americans and to be available soon to all of us.  Here is a short list (below) of comparisons between the Pfizer and Moderna brands of those vaccines.  We did notice that on Dec. 21st, Dr. Anthony Faucci chose to get the Moderna version of the COVID-19 vaccine.  We also understand that the Center for Disease Control has recommended that those over 75 years of age be among the first to get the vaccine after the frontline workers.  When that will actually occur in your state will likely be part of your state's plan to administer the doses they get from the Federal Government.

In the meantime, wear your masks when you go out into public spaces,

in order to STAY SAFE.

How to stay healthy

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, take the same precautions that are recommended for avoiding other illnesses:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds before eating, after using the restroom or after blowing your nose.
  • If you can’t wash your hands, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60-95% alcohol.
  • Try to avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes.
  • Stay home when you’re feeling sick.
  • Avoid close contact with those who are sick.
  • Regularly clean and disinfect commonly touched surfaces in your home and workplace.

If you need care

If you think you may have acquired or been exposed to COVID-19, you can take a screening assessment online at virtuwell or Doctor on Demand. Both are available 24/7 at no cost to you.

 

If you have additional concerns, contact your primary care clinic.

 

  Send in some new news about your friends from St. Louis Park High.

How about viewing this nostalgic video from 1955 to get your juices pumped up and ready for a whole-class, joint 80th birthday celebration?

All we have to do is convince our event-planning group to arrange for such a special party so we can all see one another once more.

 

Remember when this photo was taken?

                Did you know? 

... that today, besides being New Year's Eve (Happy New Year, everyone!), Auld Lang Syne Day? Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadians played "Auld Lang Syne" as a New Year's Eve song for the first time on this day in 1929. Auld Lang Syne had been the band's theme song long before 1929. However, this night was the start of a New Year's Eve tradition as Lombardo's famed orchestra played at the Hotel Roosevelt Grill in New York City to usher in the new year.

Today's Inspirational Quotes
 

"New Year's Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery. Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand. Only dreams give birth to change."

            -- Sarah Ban Breathnach

 

"Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365-page book. Write a good one."

            -- Brad Paisley
