Thanks to all who could make it to a wonderful evening of good camaraderie, entertainment and superb dinner and music! I applaud my fellow members of the Planning Committee! My best wishes for those of you who couldn't make it to either night, you missed a good time.

I do miss those who aren't with us now and hope the Ghost Indian List doesn't expand much in the coming years til our next Reunion.

A special word for the Indian in Pink. Seems he got in the Bad graces of the Arizona Sherriff.

I was so excited to see your reunion website posted in the paper and then scan through all the names of my old friends. Although I'm in the class of '69, I spent my junior year having so much fun with Susie Wyatt, Debbie Gerred, Jerry Nester, Becky Schneider, and other seniors on the drill team. I live in Olathe and am the language arts curriculum coordinator for the school district. I would love to hear from you!
Have a great time at your reunion!

Greeting from North Carolina.  I’m sorry I couldn’t make the reunion, even though Jim Atwell had really psyched me up for it.  This certainly brings up a big 'thought ball' of great memories.  I join in remembering shootin’ the breeze with Charlie Smith while he was working at the Skelly Station in Mission.  And Worth Chambers for his hearty laugh and his crooked glasses.  And Scott Robb for his class.  I wish all of you well.  Have a great time!

I join Wayne White in his remembrances of Worth Chambers, Scott Robb and Charley Smith.  I remember Wayne, Worth and Scott from Milburn Junior High as well as SMN.  Scott Robb gave a speech in the 9th grade “selling caskets” with his own drawings of each casket!  Everyone was laughing so loud he got an “A” by acclamation!  I’ve been in remission from my cancer for 7 years, move a little slower, but am enjoying life after the Army.  If you get a chance, go view the State Champions Wall at the high school.  It’s located in the hallway outside the new Auxiliary Gym.  I appreciate all the hard work of the “committee” in organizing these events!

After all these years and all of the places I've been and lived (LA, Santa Fe, Fairbanks Ak, India, Vancouver BC, St Paul, Santa Fe again) I live within pogo-sticking distance from SMN!

Looking forward to seeing everyone.

I'm glad to see that a lot of us are still procrastinators (myself included). I waited until the last minute to RSVP just like I always waited until the last minute to read a book for English class.  Actually, I think I just bought the "Cliff Notes" the night before the test.  Can you guys believe we really got through high school without computers and cell phones?!  I guess we just didn't realize how deprived we really were. But we SURE HAD FUN!!!  Can't wait to see how none of us have changed after 40 years.

This is very interesting to read everyone's comments. Wow, what a memory to see Worth Chambers name. What a great guy. Such fun playing basketball, roaming the neighborhood, getting into trouble. Also Charlie Smith too. He had that beige corvair and acted like it was a GTO. Though I left before the senior year I always have my memories tied to KC. This should be a great weekend. See you soon.

I laughed out loud about Don Lasley clearing up his identity and Darryl Richey not dancing since his Purple Haze days. Loved seeing Mary Walker and Ron Parks picture...I know we will all have a great time!

Hey folks.  This will be the first one I can make in 25 yrs.  I am looking forward to seeing everyone.  Maybe I can help straighten out the confusion between me and Dan Lapsley, whom I would also hope will be there.  Best wishes to those who can't make it.  Maybe in 5 or 10 yrs?

Thanks to Patty Clune Acosta for letting me know that I was on the "lost" list.  Even though I am now found, I won't be able to attend the reunion, but I wish you all the best.  Have a great party!

I'll be at the beach in New Hampshire!

Hello to all you Indians from sunny Florida!  Hard to believe that it has been so many years but you know what they say:  Time flies...  I would love to be able to attend but will be out of the country on a long-planned trip.  Thanks to all who have worked so hard to organize this event and I would love to hear from any of my friends from the good "old" days.  My email is cm937@bellsouth.net
Have a great time!!

I still think about some of the great times I had in high school. Yes, I was a little squirrelly back then. 
I miss my buddies Dave Campbell, Gary Alteri, Worth Chambers and several others I haven't seen in a long time.
I hope to see many of you at the reunion and toast to your health. If you can't make it I hope live treats you well.

"Approved", "valid" and "appropriate" email?  Jeeze, we sound like our grandparents.... Did it strike any of you that many of the folks you would most like to see are dead, missing or not coming? Worth Chambers, Charly Smith and Scott Robb are the most difficult absences for me.On the bright side ,Worth still makes me laugh. I'll never forget the look on Charly's face when he "won" his first fight. Scott was a gentle soul who brought peace and acceptance to all. Remember? I look forward to seeing many of the good and bad still kicking.

My older brother mentioned today that he had found the SMN 66 (when he graduated) and was totally surprised he was "lost."  Glad to see I am not lost, just not in the loop.  Surprised to see a reunion for our 40th (geez, are we that old?) and Susie and Joe and so on names.  You are terrific.  Wish I could fly "back home to Kansas" to see you all - but that's the weekend before I give my algebra final - and my students wouldn't forgive me if they couldn't get hold of me.  Best wishes to you all and thanks for keeping our class spirit alive!

I may not be able to see you all, but will try.  I recall having so many of you in Choir and the
wonderful experiences we shared.  I wish you
all the best and treasure fondly the memories
we share of those wonderful North times.

I so wish that I could be there but I have a prior commitment.  I've tried to make it work, but I just can't.  I'll definitely be at the next one!!!  Drop me an email at pamrussell@sbcglobal.net.

I appreciate your efforts in locating me and it was
very nice talking to you yesterday.  The website is 
cool.  I have been curious about some people I 
used to know for years. Due to the prior commitment it told you about (my husband is
very disappointed) we won't be able to make it.
Maybe next time.  Thanks again.

Hi all,
I won't be able to come to the reunion. My youngest is getting married that weekend in Montgomery, Alabama. I'm so sorry to miss seeing everyone. I still live in Florida so I never see any of  you. I have been coming back pretty often to take care of my parents so maybe I'll run in to some of you in the old neighborhood.
Have a great time, love to hear how it goes.

Living in Minnesota ...Still talking about snow ,in the middle of April! I'll be looking forward to comming to Kansas, and to seeing all my good friends.

Hey- amazing to think some of us are still alive to tell our 'war' stories and comfort one another at this stage in our lives. Just tonight... by 'accident' I ran into Bob Burnett at the Kansas Music Hall of Fame party in Lawerence. He knew nothing about our get together. Barry Adamson, now in Portland Oregon- just published a powerful new book. I am trying to get him to come. Some of you think I am a "holy roller"--- but I still love to DANCE and hope to see you all on the weekend of June 7!
