                                    60TH REUNION

What a great party!  This may be the best one yet!  Those were some of the comments made by members of the Class of 1958 as they said goodbye to lifetime friends when the reunion was over.

If you recall the 55th Reunion in 2013, we squeezed about 120 classmates and guests into the Basil Restaurant at the Embassy Suites in Tukwila.  Martha and the Reunion Committee estimated that the 60th reunion would be attended by more than 120 guests,  The committee therefore opted to move the reunion to the Triple Crown Ballroom in the Embassy Suites which has a possible capacity of 200.  Not only was there greater capacity, but the newly remodeled Atrium would be available to us for a cocktail hour.  This was a definite advanatage over the retaurant venue.  But the disadvantage of the Ballroom/Atrium was that the per meal cost was 50% higher: $45.00 rather than $30.00.  The committee was initially hesitant to commit to the increase for fear of eliminating classmates who couldn't afford that significant increase.  However, an anonymous classmate stepped forward with the offer to establish an informal fund to pay the $15 difference for each person who attended leaving the per person cost at $30.00.  The committee accepted that generous offer.  As you can recall with the registration document that you received, each classmate was given the opportunity to contribute to the fund which would reduce the per person meal cost.

Two amazing things happened:

170 classmates and guests attended the Reunion.  Thank you, Martha, for your infinite wisdom.

63 generous classmates contributed approximately $4000 to the fund to reduce meal costs, which not only paid for the higher priced meal, but there was enough money left over to give everyone a free drink.  This was a nice surprise that classmates and guests didn't know about until they received their "free drink" ticket at the door.

Terry McCarthy, whose term of President has been extended for 60 years, welcomed us and made note of the 22 clasmates who flew in for the reunion from out-of-state, including Ramona Hopping Kechelen and Ginger Syverson Wikmark, who came all the way from Europe.  Terry introduced the 8 classmates who married within the class (the class lovebirds) as well as 3 classmates attending their first reunion.  7 classmates who were on the Pirate football team of 1957 were also recognized.  Terry presented a gold pendent and chain to Martha to thank her for all the time and energy she spent putting together sixty years of reunions.

The conversations were wonderful, the food was excellent and the wine and drinks were not too expensive.  As the reunion closed, we all vowed to see each other again for our 65th Reunion.

We are happy to report that the "lost" photos from past reunions have been restored to the website and are accessed using the 55th Reunion tab. There are also pictures on the *Memory Lane Pictures* tab.  If you have any pictures you'd like to add from past reunions or our school days, please contact Martha Brock at mbrock52@comcast.netIn the very near future pictures from the 60th Reunion will be on the site and will be accessed from the tab marked 55th Reunion.  

Several of you have asked for information from our graduation including song lyrics.  These fun facts have been moved to a new tab.  See class songs and facts tab.

If you know of classmates who are not already on our website please pass on the web site information by using the "Missing Classmates" email invite located on the bottom right-hand side of this page.  Make sure you also leave Martha or myself a message with their email address.
