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.

February 2021 News

We have added a new page to the links at the left: Pandemic Stress Relievers.  It's essentially a lot of good old music videos for you to watch and listen to as you await the end of this terrible Covid Pandemic that has us all so self-isolating.  Get ready for some nostalgic reflection!  


We have very sad news just reported.  Our beloved classmate, Glenn DePue, has lost a granddaughter in an auto accident.  Here is the statement from Glenn on his Facebook Page.  

Of course, we all realize that this sort of news speaks to what we all know is the wrong order of events in anyone's life.  No one wants to hear that one of their children or grandchildren has preceded them in death.  Our hearts go out to Glenn and his wife Marian.


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.

But which vaccine should you choose to get?  Probably the one you are offered by your healthcare provider.  Here's the growing list:

Last Friday, January 29th, pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson reported successful results of its phase 3 clinical trial of a coronavirus vaccine.

The announcement also, however, fueled concerns over the growing number of virus variants and the continuing effectiveness of available vaccines.

Overall efficacy of the J&J vaccine was 66 percent worldwide (above the FDA threshold for a vaccine to be widely deployed), compared with 90 percent and 95 percent of approved treatments by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna. But comparison is difficult because the first two vaccines were tested before the emergence of variant viruses, some of which appear somewhat resistant to treatments.

The J&J vaccine is based on a different technology from currently approved RNA vaccines, using a neutralized adenovirus to deliver DNA containing instructions for the coronavirus’ spike protein into the body. That causes the body to produce spike protein and generates an immune response that protects against the coronavirus. The single-dose vaccine, robust enough to be stored at higher temperatures than RNA vaccines, is thought to be an important addition to the vaccine arsenal and suitable for distribution in rural areas and developing nations, which may be far from deep freezers needed to store RNA vaccines.

The trial showed strong protection against severe disease, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19, with lesser protection against moderate-to-severe disease and lower protection still against moderate-to-severe disease caused by the variant widespread in South Africa, where a portion of the trial was held. The trial showed that 28 days after vaccination, the vaccine protected against moderate-to-severe COVID-19 with 72 percent efficacy in the U.S., 66 percent efficacy in Latin America, and 57 percent efficacy in South Africa, where a variant that spreads more easily and has shown some ability to escape immune responses is widespread. The vaccine’s protection was stronger against severe disease, with 85 percent protection in all regions at 28 days, rising to 100 percent effectiveness — no cases of severe disease — at 49 days. It also showed complete protection against hospitalization and death at 28 days and no allergic reactions in those who received it.

“There will come a time for celebration, probably after everybody’s vaccinated.”

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.

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?

Our 55th Reunion in 2013 at the SLP Hall of Fame Induction Dinner

(Yes, that's Roy Griak in the middle.)





                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
