Nearly thirty 75+ year olds gathered for an online DHS reunion last fall. I think we should be very proud to have tamed our electronic devices enough to connect with each other virtually! The group included many that often hadn't been able to attend: Bruce Jones from Minnesota, William Morse McNeil from Florida (who it turns out was in Vietnam with Sam Band from Gorham). There was a trio from California: Eileen Brownell from Chico, Julian Orr from Pescadero, and Rick Waxman from Sonoma as well as local regulars like Mort Soule, Bruce McAfee and Bonnie Thurlow. Sherri Bryan sang "Be Loyal to the Purple" at 7 PM, but committee members were surprised that the conversation lasted until 8 PM for many attenders. Topics ranged from wildfires to covid masks and stay well strategies to memories of DHS! Terry and I are grateful for all the help we received from the committee: Tom & Diana Allen, Dawn Derice, Chris McDuffie, and Nancy Clinton.

Can you identify all these folks from your class? Complimentary glass of wine for the first correct response!

John Small was the winner of our contest! No big surprise because he has been keeping track of us for years through relocations, name changes, illnesses and recoveries, celebrations and losses. Alas never a wine drinker, he says his favorite drink these days is water! We will show up at his house (gloved and masked, of course) and surprise him with a bottle of Perrier!

Can you name these folks? Don't you wish everyone had name tags?
Don't you wish everyone could be at the reunion?

We think this gal looks pretty much like she did in 1963. Which guy pictured here would you say that about?
Bring your spouse or significant other. We'd love to meet them!
