      Welcome to the

St Louis Park Senior High School 

 Class Of 1958 Web Site.

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.

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 the birthday of the Louvre Museum? Formerly a royal palace, the Louvre has embraced the history of France for eight centuries. Intended as a universal museum since its inception in 1793, its collections--among the finest in the world--span several thousands of years. Traveling there soon? The Louvre is closed on Tuesdays!

Remember when a penny was real copper?  This one from 1955 is an example.

Is Dried Fruit More Nutritious Than Fresh Fruit? Why or Why Not?

When you think about what makes dried fruit different from fresh fruit, it's really just the process of dehydrating. In the process of dehydrating, one thing is for sure...

The fruit gets smaller!!

But the real nutrition question is whether that process causes any loss of nutrition aside from the loss of fluid.

Read on to find out which is more nutritious:
