To the Class of Sixty-Five,


The song is meant as a tribute to special people and a unique time-and dedicated to those no longer with us-it is something to look at those experiences from the perspective of forty years later-with this reunion a chance to remember and be remembered-to wonder what happened to the years and how our classmates got so old-to shrug at where the hair went and the extra weight came from-to get together with those who knew us when-or even before when-back before the day-back to where we learned to drive or tried to dance and when nothing was more important than the game on Friday night or hanging out with the right people on Saturday-
High school was the last time we were all sort of tossed together based only on geography-our senior year being Abe Parker's last as Principal-his 40th at LC-back when he appeared ancient and forty years seemed forever-it was Mr. Toev's last year and Coach Bartlett's last season-and we were the last senior class before Ferris divided up the South Side-
The world as we knew it appeared to close behind as we graduated-Vietnam became a shadow over our lives and part of the evening news for the next decade-in short order Dylan went electric-cities burned-we lost a King and another Kennedy as well as faith in our government; reaching a zenith with something known as Watergate-during those same years we wondered out loud about the common good-seriously discussing Civil Rights-Women's Rights-Environmental Rights-Gay Rights-(An African American kid would no longer automatically be told to “think about technical school” after graduation-and a high school girl could-for the most part-throw a ball as hard and run as fast and dream as big as she wanted without being laughed at by other kids.)
Life didn't turn out the way I thought it would forty years ago- knowing myself proved more difficult-mistakes more costly-losses more painful-and genuine connections made more meaningful-
Thank you for the connections to that special time that launched each of us toward what became our lives-thanks for remembering now-thanks to those who did the work and made this reunion possible-and thanks, too, for not laughing that hard as you look at the face and then the name tag-
Fondly,
Mark Pearson, Lewis and Clark, Class of 65

Hi Mark,
 
Thank you for the wonderful song and great letter.  Recently, I was talking to some of the 20 something's and 30 something's with whom I work about all that went on during our high school and college years.  You summed it up really poignantly in both. Thanks for capturing what I am sure many of us have thought, known and felt. Oh yes... and Abraham Lincoln Parker loved every brick and stone in the building!!!!  What a time it was.   Best wishes, Clarice Wilsey
Jim:

Thanks for the web site again this LC reunion time.  So kind of you to
take such an active role in seeing this all comes together.
Unfortunately, I was unable to attend this time as my wife and I have
been in Moscow, Russia for the last 16 months and will not return to the
U.S. until October.  Your web site has given me at least a connection to
this reunion.  I must say that reviewing those who have departed has
caused me some somber moments here in Russia.  I look forward to seeing
some pictures from this reunion as well as some e-mails from those who
were there.  My e-mail is lochleven@juno.com .  I am including
(attaching) a recent picture, taken a couple of weeks ago along the
Moscow River.  I don't know if it is appropriate for you to post it or
not, since I was not in attendance..  Thanks again.  Hope to see you in 5
years.

Thank you Bob Lobdell for arranging the tour of Lewis and Clark.  It was fun walking in the hallways and remembering what it looked like then and seeing it now.  I'm glad the students have an opportunity see the history of the school by looking at the display case.

Hi Jim,
Here's the few pictures Jane took with our camera.  She did fill up a camera for Dian as well.
 
See you next time.

To all,
    Hats off to the reunion committee for a job well done!  Everything seemed to go flawlessly.
    It's hard for us folks who just show up to appreciate the planning that goes in to this event.  I can only imagine the hours (and bottles of wine) that went in to the planning.  All of the committee members deserve our thanks and congratulations.
   I look forward to seeing everyone's photos posted on this web site.  (Thanks, Jim) 
More later,

As the last of the reunion committee members drives down the street, I am overwhelmed by the feelings of how much fun our class has when we get together. Tonight I hosted a salmon barbeque because Larry Gray brought his wonderful salmon across the state and the committee wanted to get together. We are used to seeing each other every month.
Little did I know how sneaky they were at asking you all for a monetary donation for gifts for me. I tried to keep the reunion costs down and there they were asking you for more money. I have so little control over them.

But, aren't they the greatest and I love the gifts you gave me. My LC hat and vest will keep me warm on my winter walks. Thank you for the gift certificate from Huckleberries. They have a great selection of food and wine. Now I am the proud owner of Mark Pearson's song, signed and beautifully framed. It hangs in my home's entry. You are all invited to stop by and admire it.

I thank you for your generosity and for being an important part of my life. I'm blessed to know you.

Hi Jim, I've enjoyed looking at the website for our class of 65.  This year's event looks like it was really fun, and I'm sorry I missed it!
 
I recognize a couple of people . . . my, oh my!  Guess I better put the 45th on my calendar right now!!!
 
Thanks for putting the web site together--I'm assuming you did that.  It's great, and I've sure enjoyed looking at it.
 
I look forward to the next one!

Hi Jim -

I had the enclosed picture I took at the reunion for you, but waited to enclose the additional one because I had a neat experience recently.

I decided to return to work part-time at a school near our home.  The school secretary and I tried to figure out why we looked familiar to each other.......kid's soccer teams, PTA's, church, college....and finally she said, "Did you go to high school in Spokane?"  Imagine my surprise when I realized it was Sue (Chase) Welch!

Sue was unable to attend the reunion due to a wedding.  I brought the pictures I had taken and the yearbook, and she's had fun re-connecting by e-mail and cell phone, from the yearbook information, etc.  She told me her mom is still one of your patients.

Last weekend, Sue and I met Suellyn (Koontz), Kathy (Rice) and Maggie (Geraghty) for dinner in Seattle and then went to hear Mark Pearson put on a concert near the U.  That is what the additional picture is from.

It was great to see you and even though the visit(s) were brief, it was fun a fun reunion!  I really enjoyed seeing so many classmates.

Gail (Bronson) Harsh

Dear Dian-
Thanks again for all you did to make a great reunion-a very special
time-that took a lot of your time-thanks-

I want to let you know about a concert I will be having in Spokane-on
November 12th-at 7 PM-at Plymouth Congregation Church-on 8th and
Walnut-
It will be a fundraiser-for City Gate-a good will offering will be
accepted-

It should be a fun show-I will be singing with my friend of 40 years,
Mike McCoy, who joined me last year in The Brothers Four-

I will be leaving this morning for California-to tape a PBS show-but
will be back on Friday evening-at that time I will get in touch-for
some advice on how to get the word out-

Hope all is well and good for you-

Fondly-
Mark

Jim,
 I assume you saw Dennis Delno Schambron's death notice.  It was confusing because they listed it Dennis S Schambron.  Our yearbook has it Dennis Delno Schambron.  They listed ythe same sister as I have on record so I think it must be the same one. That's #6 since the reunion and #58 I believe. Yuk.  Later, dian
   I can't be held responsible for any of the photos, as I didn't take them.  I just put my camera out on loan.
   My apologies to you folks who have a dial-up connnection.  It takes forever to download all of these photos.  I know that I get mad when I get a photo when I'm in Alaska using a dial-up connection.
   Date August 30th.  Location: Spokane, Dian's House.  About 4 Sockeye consumed and a couple of cases of my home-canned fish disappeared.  I think a good time was had by all.  Too bad that it rained.  60 days of dry weather in Spokane, and we picked a rainy day.  Oh well. 
   I suppose that there is a way to send all of these photos in one e-mail, but I don't know how to do it.  I only know how to attach a maximum of 4 photos.  So if you don't want anymore photos, just delete my next several e-mails.  Besides, Jim Hoppe said that he will post (after editing and deleting) some of these photos on the LC65 website.  Thanks Jim.
   Joyce also took several photos at the BBQ.  Once she figures out how to drive her new camera, we'll be seeing her photos.  
More later,
Dian - - - you've probably alread heard, but just in case you haven't, I thought I send a note.  Mark is giving a concert on March 11th in Seattle honoring turning 60.  I'm going over with the Eatons.  March 10th at the Nordstrom Recital Hall in the Benaroya Hall in downtown Seattle.  I figured you probably have the largest number of emails for classmates, so I'm wondering if you'd like to pass the word.  Mark may be contacting people, too.  Tickets are available thru www.ticketmaster.com
 ~Sandy 
I will not be able to make it to the birthday bash on August 18, 2007, but I would like to take this opportunity  to wish everyone Happy 60th Brithday.  I turned 60 in January and I still don't feel any older.

HI Everyone,

This year I will not be able to make it to the reunion. Our son, Jim, has been in Iraq for the third time and is due to come home sometime the weekend of the 45th reunion or this day could change to later in August. My husband and I really don't want to leave for fear we may miss the home coming. I hope everyone enjoys all the activities that are planned for this reunion.

Dear LC Reunion Golfers-

Please find attached the final list of golfing groups and associated tee times for our event on Saturday, August 14th at Indian Canyon. If you wish to ride, cart rental rates are $14/person and can be rented upon your arrival that morning. Jim Robinson & John Mohatt, and Frank King, Jim Zacher, Jerry Whitney, & Lance Roberts might want to coordinate beforehand to decide if you are going to ride and, if so, who will be riding with whom. Please be there 30-45 minutes before your tee time to let us know you survived the event on Friday night and will be playing, and to get your cart, and to sign up for the contests that Crick Brakel is organizing.

I've also attached a copy of the scorecard for Indian Canyon to acquaint (or reacquaint) you with the layout there. Some recent changes at the course include reversing the front and back nine holes, and making Hole# 10 (old #1) a par 4 for men.

Please contact me via e-mail or phone (509-533-0801) if you have any questions.

Thanks,

Jim Malm

Am trying to find Heather Davies and Robin Eddy. Can u help?
Hi Jim—Gave me a warm feeling to see my United States Senate campaign on the front page of the lc65.com website. I enjoy hearing from classmates; and look forward to seeing all of you again soon. The primary vote in California is on June 5, 2012; there are twenty-four (24!) candidates in the Senate race, if you can imagine that. The top two vote-getters in the primary will advance to the general election in November. Incumbent Dianne Feinstein is sure to win one of the two slots—I’m one of the viables for the second. I have a significant base of support—endorsed by the Republican Liberty Caucus at both the state and national levels. But it’s a wide open race; so who knows! Whatever the outcome on June 5th, I’ll be involved in liberty--oriented politics for the rest of my life. The limited constitutional governance principles I stand for are coming to the forefront; I’m one of many fresh voices from all around the country speaking out for real change.



I sold my home at Coeur d’Alene lake a few years back to return to California full time. Practicing law; politics; constantly meeting new activists (young and old)—this is how I spend my time these days. Best regards for the birthday party this summer; say hello from me to Dian, and Timme, and Mark, and Chris, and our other friends from the Class of ’65. What a memorable year that was. Regards. Rick Williams
