Looking forward to seeing many of you too bad we've lost some since the last reunion, my wife has changed her mind and will be joining me although she went to Concordia she knew most of our classmates. Here's my surprise that I had mentioned to Dave Frazer too cool to keep secret.

Yvette Fuchs (Nierenhausen)

Very cool! Glad your wife decided to join us! See you soon!

Thanks Yvette, Francene, and Bob for all you did to make the reunion great (and anyone else).  I also appreciated all the work the "kids" did and their costumes!  The only problem was that I was exhausted and was tired this morning.  How many more years before we have to be done by 6:00 pm so we can make our bedtime?  Again, thank you!

Job Well Done!  Thanks to all of you folks that worked so very hard to make our 45th such a success!  I, like so many others had a really good time.  I look forward to our next one and pray that our “ Memory Board” numbers don’t increase.  It really is difficult to see, just how many incredible individuals we have lost thus far.  See you at our 50th!

I, too, would like to thank all those involved in organizing our 45th ... and for the many classmates who traveled near and far to make the evening so memorable.  It is always good to take time and return to our roots ... remember and reflect on the years that brought us together ... we are all so richly blessed.  I also want to thank Steve Hardy for maintaining this website so we can all stay in touch and informed.

Thanks Yvette, Francene, and Bob and especially those who maintain the mailing list.

I got to see a couple old friends I haven't seen for awhile

Mary Ann Etzler (Etzler-Phillips)

Many thanks to everyone who helped put together the 45th reunion on Saturday!  Having planned a few events myself I know how difficult it is to pull it all together-invites, location, music, entertainment, food, beverages, tables, nametags, photos, memorabilia and more.  You all truly did a great job, and saying thank you just doesn't seem sufficient.  

I echo the sentiments of others, the party was a great time, dancing was fun and it was amazing how many folks stayed until the lights were turned on!  Seeing people we have not seen in years was amazing, and in some cases emotional, just thinking back and reminiscing.  Greg, Tom, Bob, Yvette, Jeff, Victor, Dave, May Lou, and so many more, it was great catching up with you all.  I'm just sorry i didn't get to say hello to everyone who attended (yes, there were that many, how cool is that!). So for those I missed, my apologies, but please stay in touch on this forum which is so gracioulsy managed by Steve Hardy!

Back to work, Happy Tuesday, and don't be strangers!   If any of you are ever in Central Florida please do let me know as I would love to see you if your time here would permit a short visit with a classmate!

Thank you all very much for a great reunion! I had a lot of "fun" in changing it up a bit with the help of a few classmates. I wish everyone happiness and good health. Please stay in touch. Bob

Oh, and I forgot to tell you all the funniest (stupidest) thing ever about American Airlines (which is fast becoming far too similar to Spirit and Jet Blue). Apologies in advance to any classmate I might offend, who has ties to the airline industry!

So we booked our flights to/from MNPLS with American ONLY because we had to cancel our trip to Ft. Worth, TX in Sept (due to Hurricane Dorian) and American ALLOWED US to use that flight as a credit for a future flight.  Ok, I guess that's better than the "no refund" we received on our kids' tickets.

The flights to/from each had one stop, and on each of the "stop overs" our seat assignments were not adjacent to one another.  So we asked the gate attendant onthe first stop if we could change seats & they said , "sure, but the cost is $10 per person, thank you."  Seriously?  We declined.  On the other stop over we asked the gate attendant the same thing, and they said, "sorry, the flight is full, but for $10 each we could try to move you."  WHAT?  

In both cases, THE FLIGHTS WERE NOT FULL, and once on board, after everyone was seated, the flight attendants told us it was OK to move to adjacent seats. Note to self:  wait until you're boarded to ask for a seat reassignment!

Gotta love the airline industry.  I know we all have to make money but this just seemed like "over the top" greed and a lot of customer "no service."  Makes flying so much less fun, doesn't it?

Thanks to all that worked on the reunion.  Your hard work really paid off.  Kora and I had a great time.  It was fun reconnecting with folks I have not seen in years and getting to know some classmates I didn't know well in High School.  My only regret was not being able to visit with everyone.  (So many people, so little time.)  We had to leave a little early becasue of some committments on Sunday morning, but I have to say it was time well spent.  Thanks again.

I am sorry, and with a heavy heart, to tell you that our sweet Carme Belcher Thieme passed away yesterday after a 4 year battle with pancreatic cancer. She fought like a warrior, but lived every day having fun. She is home, and happy with our Lord now....

10/09/19 08:58 AM #1636    


David Frazer

Sorry to hear about Carmen (for the family and friends sorry)!  What a fighter for four years!  Praying for the family and friends. Look forward to a heavenly reunion!

I echo the sentiment from the reunion; so many people to visit with and on the way home thought; oh!  I never made it back to talk with her/him!  Sure was fun!  Again, thanks to all who made it a fun night!  P.s. I'm bringing a notebook to the next reunion and writing all the invites down incase that I ever retire. Imagine the money I could save eating your food and over staying the visit, and not having a mortgage. wink

Remember Mr. Krubsack, one of our 10th grade World History Teachers?

William L. Krubsack

William L. Krubsack, a longtime resident of Prescott, WI, passed away at the age of 78 on October 4, 2019. 

Bill was born on February 10, 1941 in Fond du Lac, WI. He was the fifth born of seven children. He grew up and attended school in Stevens Point, WI. He graduated from UW-Stevens Point in 1964 with a BS in History.

He achieved his dream job of teaching World History at Park High School in Cottage Grove, MN. While teaching at Park, he obtained his Master of Arts degree in Teaching from UW-River Falls in 1973. He retired after 30 fulfilling years in 1998. He fondly referred to his students as “scholars” and used to say, “I remember the thinkers and the stinkers.”

A memorial service is scheduled for Sunday, October 13 at 1:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary at Unity Church-Unitarian at 733 Portland Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55104. Coffee and cookies will be served after the service in the Parish Hall.

I am sorry to hear about Carmen! It sounds like I missed the best time last weekend but my family needed me! I am posting a photo of our October blizzard . I bet you are glad you live where you do! Please pray for us farmers up here, most of us have crops in the fields and can’t get to them!

Yvette Fuchs (Nierenhausen)

Prayers! We'll see you soon! Hugs and take care!
