Home of the Orioles!

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." 

 

Some 60th Class Reunion Photos are here and posted on this website.  If you also took pictures, and are willing to send yours in to us, we will post them here as well.

You will find the photos at the three links at the left entitled:

  • 60th Reunion at Kip's Bar
  • 60th Reunion at Tim's Farm
  • 60th Reunion Banquet Shot 

We thank classmates Dwight and Cricket Atwood-Steege, Bill Kerwin, Donna Rose Reyes and KC Cravens for their willingness to share their photos.  Tim Kiernan's daughter, Monica, also contributed many of the photos taken at the Farm.  You may, in the case of each of the three files, look at the "slide show" of photos, timed to change every 7 to 10 seconds; or, you can find all the same still shots at the bottom of the page and look at them as long as you like.  Captions will appear at the bottom of some of the pictures.

Don't forget that classmate Dan Geldert will be conducting a Community Band Concert on Sunday Sept. 23rd at Minnetonka High School at 3:00 PM.  Consult this website for further details: http://www.musicassociation.org/performances.html

This website announces information regarding Dan's next concert at Minnetonka High School.

We hope you had a wonderful time at the 60th Class Reunion on Aug. 24, 25 & 26.  Whether you came only for the Kip's Friday night social, or the Farm Event at Tim Kiernan's on Saturday, or enjoyed the Dinner and Program at the Minneapolis Golf Club on Saturday, a good time was had by all. 

On behalf of the planning and coordinating team, led by Karen (KC) Cravens Bretzke, we wish you good and stable health, for you need to prepare for our collective, all-classmates' 80th Birthday Party in 2020.  Stay tuned for news about that.

                Did you know? 
... that today is Pentagon Groundbreaking Day? On this day in 1941, the groundbreaking ceremony for the Pentagon took place in Arlington, Virginia. We were only about 1 year old at the time.  The Pentagon is the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense, located across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. Trivia fans: Approximately 23,000 military and civilian employees and about 3,000 non-defense support personnel work in the Pentagon.

Today's Inspirational Quotes

"Just breathe in, breathe out, and remember that moving forward means taking it one step at a time."

"Do not bring people in your life who weigh you down. And trust your instincts ... good relationships feel good. They feel right. They don't hurt. They're not painful. That's not just with somebody you want to marry, but it's with the friends that you choose. It's with the people you surround yourselves with."

            -- Michelle Obama

    Rememberance Quotes for September  

"Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain... To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices - today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it."

Kevyn Aucoin
