Well, Suzie and I made the Village Voice. It was not for any crime, this time!! The picture was taken at out Christmas dance. Susie looks great, as always. Contrary to how the picture looks, I only had one glass of wine, honest !!!

Hello!
I think of the good ol' class of "59"  quite often and wonder what life has brought to each classmate. I live in Newberry South Carolina. {Mid-state)  I have five sons, am divorced, and work at Mid Carolina High School. Aaron, my fifteen year old, keeps me young. 

JOAN Valach HARTMAN 


 
Howdy from Arkansas,
After Suzie showed me the pictures from the reunion, I was really sorry we could not make the trip. Suzie and I have already put it on our agenda to make the next one.  Since retiring to Hot Springs Village, AR.,we have made only one trip back north. 

In April my youngest, Lori, (also an alumni of CMH) graduated from the University of Northern Michigan with a B.S. Psychology.  Suzie and I made the trip north for the commencement. We only had two days to spent in Wisconsin. By the time we made our visits to the kids and families, it was time to head back. Regrettably, we did not have time to spent with friends.

A special hello to Mary Ann. I pray you are doing great, again, these days. I'm doing just fine and am at peace with the world. I now have eight Grandchildren and expect to have a great grandchild within the next two years. That should make any-one feel old. Too bad I haven't reached that stage, yet.  If anyone gets down to the Hot Springs area, stop in for a visit, stay as long as you want. We have plenty of room. The village is only fifteen minutes north of Hot Springs on hwy 7. I am working part time and golf every chance I get. Suzie and I also take as many trips as we can every year. 

Regards to all,
Bill Barborich

Hi there!
This is the first reunion I've missed going to.and I really missed not seeing the gang again.
Since I've been here in Arkansas, I've only heard from a couple members of the class once or twice.  Send me a e-mail when you can. 

Regards, Suzie!  SUZANNE SCHWINGEL
 

p.s. I hope you all are doing well...

THANKS AGAIN - JOHN L. MICKEL  59'


It was great to see the pictures of the reunion and now I'm so sorry I missed it as there were some people I'd not ever seen since the summer of 59. 
        To bring you up to date--I've just retired after 34 years of teaching in the public schools.  This is going to be the best September ever!   I still have a hobby "out of control", making and selling appliqued sweats at craft shows, primarily in northern Wis vacationland.  So I really still have my "fun" job and a pension check!   My husband has been disabled with rhuematoid arthritis for 29 years, but he is not nearly in as much pain as earlier in the disease, so we plan to travel some--friends in Texas this winter, also a trip to Hawaii in Feb.  Just returned home from a looooong week-end to see our second son, wife, and granddaughter in Detroit.  We have 3 grandsons here in Wis. Rapids also.  We have been blessed with  2 wonderful kids who have made responsible choices in life. 
        Where are you now-a-days?   Keep in touch.  I promise I'll make the next reunion.
Theresa Kawatski, (now Terry Davis)
