Back in the Saddle

Just wanted to do a quick post so you know we are still here... alive and kicking! Hard to believe it's been almost 9 months since the last reunion. Took a few months to decompress. Mark Landry is already talking about our 50/51 yr reunion. He has some cool ideas that will make it truly unique. We'll need more help as we get closer, so let us know if you want to be part of the behind the scenes planning committee.

Speaking of 50th year anniversaries...
Churchill HS turns 50 this year! I and Marjee Greenwood were interviewed by a Churchill Observer reporter about what it was like back then. I don't know if the article came out - reporter said she would notify us. I'll put a link if I get one. 50 years ago many of us stepped foot into Potomac HS - later named Winston Churchill HS! 

I'll try to post here now and then to keep you updated on any class news and 50/51 reunion updates. 

Enjoy your summmer! Keep in touch!

Best Reunion Ever!!

Well, we did it! Great reunion! Lot of fun, lot of memories shared, and a lot of new memories made! We were all kids again for one weekend. We were literally "back in school" Friday night and at the football game Friday night. Although the Bulldogs lost to Wootton 0-41, we all had a great time and great BBQ!
 
Saturday night, we danced like a bunch of teenagers in a school gym - although we weren't quite teenagers, and we were at the Rockville Hilton - not the school gym. LOL

Stay tuned for more pictures, videos and more! Relive "The Best Reunion Ever!!"

Good News and Bad News!

First the Bad News -- John Maddert told me the hotel said all our "blocked" rooms for reunion have been sold out.
 
Now the Good News -- All the blocked rooms for the reunion have been SOLD OUT!! It's party time at the Hilton!! They still have rooms available - so hurry and make your reservations... we are trying to add some more rooms to our "block" - fixed price $89 + taxes (which are high)... etc... If you book a room, tell them you are there for the Churchill Reunion... even if you don't get one of the blocked rooms, make sure you get discounted parking (I think it is $8) and any other perks that come with our blocked rooms.
 
Don't drink and drive! Come have fun, enjoy 2 hours open bar... book a room.

It's a Reunion! This time around.

Image
A friend said not too long ago, we just had a reunion, our 40th, He was going to wait until the 50th to come.
 
That's just the point, time flys and before you know it, you might not be able to make it to a reunion at all.
 
I was so glad to see faces and visit with those not seen in 20-or more-years. Sadly, several of those same faces are no longer with us.
 
This time around, many are coming who didn't have a chance to come to the last reunion. The list of names will soon be published.
 
Even so, who knows what might prevent you from coming to the next big reunion in five years: weddings, anniversaries, or even deaths?
 
So if you are physically able, and don't want regrets; make every effort to  be there , this time around.

Getting Close!

Our favorite teacher, Larry Jeweler, will be on a ship in the Black Sea on the date of our reunion. He was disappointed he and his wife, Sue, would not be able to attend.
 
If you know of any teacher or staff that may like to attend this historical event, let me know. Teachers or staff can attend free as our VIP guests.

Online Ticket Price Reduced!!

We have reduced the ticket price for online purchase from $82/ticket to $78/ticket. We (the reunion) will absorb 1/2 the online fee. Obviously, we prefer you mail us a check, but to make it as convenient as possible for you, we wanted to keep online ticket prices as affordable as possible. Thank the donors!!

Two Months 11 Days...

The countdown to FUN begins!

We all need to spend a few minutes and contact old HS friends to make sure they know about the reunion Sept. 21.
 
If everyone made one post a week on Facebook, we would reach more people because we all don't have the same list of friends on Facebook...
 
Just a simple post: (Copy - Paste)
Churchill High School Reunion September 21, 2013!! Class of '67 & '68 - other classes also invited... see the website www.churchillreunion.com for more info! See you there!
 
If we all posted that every few days or every week, it will help make this "The Best Reunion Ever!!"

Reunion DC Excursion with Mark Landry

Korean War Memorial

Dear Classmates,
 
I'm excited; my reservation is made coming in for a four day weekend Friday to Monday evening. I look forward to visiting with as many of you as possible. One regret from our last reunion was it was over as soon as it started. Sunday morning we were loading our cars, or taxis and saying good-byes too soon. 
 
Some of us thought we should "extend" the reunion with a cruise.  But the cruise liners wouldn't accommodate our schedule.  A cruise reunion would have to be by itself with no hotel weekend. 
 
Another option is to do a D.C. tour on Sunday. A chartered bus would pick us up at about 10 AM the Rockville Hilton and show us the newer monuments and offer a short cruise on the Potomac River with a box lunch. The excursion would last about 6 hours after which we would be returned to the hotel. On Board Tours offers this excursion for $90 plus 20% gratuity, or $108. 
 
We would need at least 20 people to make this happen. W...

A Visit with Sallie Martin by Mark Landry

Image
On a short trip to upper Michigan  I remembered to check on Sallie Martin's where-abouts. Turns out she was close by and at their summer cabin on Torch Lake. We Kayaked and gathered the fossilized corral, "Petoskey stones". Her cabin is in the background.
