"Classmate News" for March, 2018

On Sunday afternoon, March 25, 2018, Classmate Dan Geldert will be conducting the Minnetonka Concert Band at Minnetonka High School, starting at 3:00 PM.  It will be very similar to the concert last Fall with a wide variety of music...everything from Bernstein to Bartok, and Classical to Jazz.  Classmates Kent Nichols and Ross Legrand will certainly be in attendance; perhaps a minor class reunion will ensue, with everyone who shows up going out to dinner after the concert.   

 

This is the Year for our 60th Class Reunion!!!

 

Mark your calendars for the weekend of August 24, 25 and 26, 2018!  Our St. Louis Park High School Class of 1958's 60th Class Reunion will offer activities that weekend, culminating in a banquet on Sunday, August 26, 2018, at the Minneapolis Golf Club.  Watch this website (www.slp58.com), your email and your mailbox for further details.

                           

 

 
 
 
       
 

 

                Did you know? 
 
               ... that today is the Birthday of George Harrison (1943)? An English guitarist, singer-songwriter, and producer, Harrison achieved international fame as the lead guitarist of the Beatles and was often referred to as "the quiet Beatle."   

               Did you also know? 
The Most Popular Fast Food the Year.1940, in which we were born, was:
 
Slide 2 of 41: <p>After increasing the size of his roadside eatery to a 142-seat restaurant in KFC in the 1930s, the chain grew exponentially into the 1940s. It quickly became the country’s favorite fast food restaurant, with Colonel Sanders perfecting his signature blend of 11 herbs and spices during that period.</p>
While KFC was first founded in 1930 in Harland “Colonel” Sanders’ native Kentucky, it wasn’t until a decade later that his signature blend of 11 herbs and spices was born. In 1940, the chain introduced its Original Recipe chicken, to the delight of fast food fans everywhere. Fortunately, these healthy chicken recipes provide a low-calorie alternative to your usual fast food order.

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 January 23rd's photo was of: Mark Twain, age 15, in 1850.  (Did you like his hairdo?)

Here is our February 24th's photo:  It's the man on the left who is our interesting person...and he's dancing; but who is he?

              Certain Sweet Myths about Valentine's Day

Compared to holidays like Christmas and Halloween, myths about Valentine's Day tend to be rather tame. Except, of course, for the one that millions of men fall afoul of every year. You know, the one where you claim the holiday's no big deal. Sure, it's OK to skip Valentine's Day -- if you want to be single on February 15.

In all seriousness, there are a few Valentine's Day myths you might want to consider the next time you're buying a box of Valentine cards for your kid's kindergarten class. Here are three interesting ones:
