Veronica Borowicz (Moen)I'm sorry to say that Veronica Borowics (Moen) passed away from cancer in March of 2019.

I remember her as a very good natured person with a sweet smile.

We'll miss you, Veronica!

I found this notification at the Kok Funeral Home website today.  I hate to bring more sad news, but Robin (I always remembered him as "Dale) passed away just this past Friday.

I found this on YouTube this morning.  1974 Greatest Hits Playlist.  Not sure if I agree with all of the songs but it was interesting to listen to.

Hey Classmates! I am getting several mail returns from the class reunion invites. Please update this website and get any changes to me at so I can send you an invite. We need a head count by 9/5/19. Thanks!

Thanks Kathy for the music; I began to listen... I will finish later.  I am always thankful for growing up at a time when folk music/rock/blues/ jazz and blues (Think Steeley Dan), etc. could be heard on my transistor radio. Did anyone have for their first transistor one that was a Rocketship?   Yvette, I am mailing my check today.  Looking forward to the time in October (remember the song,  "try to remember the kind of September." ? :)  Back to work!  Blessings on everyone enjoying this great weather!

Does it make anyone paranoid when they say something or post a response, and no one answers for days? Weeks? Months? Did you say something? 😊

Kathy, do you remember this often-heard song, “Paranoia strikes deep, Into your life it will creep, it starts when you're always afraid…”  😊 (Buffalo Springfield, 1966, “For What It’s Worth- Did anyone else own any of their records?).

Michael Wade

There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

Douglas Kladis

I got a good reason for loving you
It's an old fashioned sign
I kinda get the feelin' like mmm you know when
I fell in love the first time.
Kind woman
Won't you love me tonight
The look in your eyes
Kind woman
Don't leave me lonely tonight
Please say it's all right

Michael, I thought you would have posted one of first songs that I couldn’t play well on the guitar, “So your brother's bound and gagged And they've chained him to a chair Won't you please come to Chicago just to sing In a land that's known as freedom how can such a thing be fair, Won't you please come to Chicago for the help that we can bring We can change the world rearrange the world It's dying - to get better Politicians…”   In fact, I was hoping you would have and then we could have taken that as an invite to your house. The tie in with that song is, of course, Crosby, Stills, Nash, And Young (Stills and Young from Buffalo Springfield). 😊

And Doug, Thanks for that Richie Furay song (Furay and Messina were in Buffalo Springfield)… I heard a song after a Lamaze class in 1984 for my second child (who gave birth a month ago to granddaughter Adeline).  I asked the hospital worker to play the credits to see if I was right at recognizing Furay’s voice.  The song was full of life and they played a part every time a baby was born in the film (one of his early new found Christian faith songs).  We used to song tie-ins while running for hours… to keep occupied.  Seldom can our generation not connect and connect and…  Have a BLESSED LABOR DAY WEEKEND!

I'd probably recognize most of Buffalo Springfield if I heard it

up here we have AM 740 WDGY with 60s and 70s

how about this one that's probably been "played into the ground"?

"Woman oh woman
Have you got cheating on your mind, on your mind"

name that band

Steve Hardy used to play that song all the time when we were challenging each other in playing pool for a couple of hours a night.  "Mercy," that was a long time ago. Steve, speaking of Steve Hardy, he used to do a mean rendition of a Uriah Heap song. So, Brent, did you have the record of Gary P? Album or single?

08/31/19 07:57 PM #1602    


Brent Reimnitz

Had (maybe still have) their greatest hits album.  The Uriah Heap song was maybe Easy Livin'.

Mary Ann Etzler (Etzler-Phillips)

Hey everyone!

Now that Hurricane Dorian has made its presence known and is headed on out, I'm hoping that another storm will not stop me from attending the reunion in October! Tickets are purchased and prayting there is no early winter storm up there (or down here) to keep me away. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

I had to cancel a trip to TX for a family reunion this past weekend thinking we were going to be in the middle of the hurricane.  Gratefully, the storm's eye and hurricane force winds stayed off-shore in our area-tho we were prepared for the full force if it came our way.  We dodged a bullet but the Bahamas are devastated. 

It will take years for the northern Bahamanian islands to recover and likely months just to complete rescue and recovery.  Islands are underwater 5-15 feet, and will take time for it to receed.  Planes can't land as the runways are still underwater.  Preliminary reports are that buildings have been leveled just like in Mexico City Beach, FL, last year (due to Hurricane Michael, another cat 5 storm).  Getting supplies to people and setting up temporary shelters/homes is a massive undertaking.   Please pray for the people in the Bahamas, the rescue workers, and the emergency care givers as the tasks are daunting.  If any of you are part of service groups, please volunteer to help rebuild, fundraise to purchase supplies necessary to rebuild (I think the Fuller Center for Housing may be putting together a plan) or participate in clean up.  Until you've seen it and walked with the people whose lives have been destroyed, it is hard to understand the devastation of property and the impact on the survivors.  My husband and I have both been involved in clean up or rebuilds after hurricanes and it is absolutely depressing when you realize how massive the destruction is and how much effort is required to help get people back into a home of any sort.

Jeanette Austin (Hawkanson)

Hi fellow classmates.  I will not be able to attend the reunion.  Have lots of fun!

David Frazer

Mary Ann, I still can't believe what the Bahamas look like now.  Sue and I "Won" a trip to the Bahamas back in the mid-nineties and I remember how flat the island was...

Jeanette, we will miss seeing you!  How well has the hip healed?
