High School Reunion pix, cont'd

I figured in my computer semi-savvy way not to overload the system and split the send in two.

Superceding this weekly Sat. Rac. issuance is the project I'm working on presently
to get many more pictures I took of our events last weekend
with the help of a pc guru close friend:

From the high school last friday we trekked to the home of Bob and Carol Lombardi in Waukesha.
As they were leaving for a long-planned famiy excursion the next day (Reunion day Sat.) they hosted
a gathering to get some reunion licks in their yard the day prior.

A fine time was had.  Some pix follow:

54ers and spouses or friends came and went
at this happyLombardi-hosted soiree.
The weather cooperated.

Next day
our luncheon was held at the Western Racquet Club in Elm Grove
amidst splendid surroundings.

54er, former Cedarburg Mayor Jim Coutts introduces ex faculty speaker, Charlie Miller

As was the case for many attenders, this gentleman, Keith Meredith, a Floridian,  came in from afar
to be at the affair, which netted 103 attenders.

Truly a success!

The labor of love performed by 1954 class president Bill Nelson
 - Ringmaster of the reunion, truth be told, was
> the heralded reunion booklet <.
That gift alone was worth the price of the country club luncheon
and MUCH more.

The contents include updated addresses, both E and postal.  Priceless!
Thanks, Bill.

Earl Olson, airport owner and of several aircraft he's collected in Medina Ohio
 listened intently as Charle Miller reminisced about physics teacher
Charlie Horwitz, who taught Earl and recommended Earl for
flying lessons while he was a student at WHS.

It kind of all started for Earl thanks to teacher Horwitz.

Of course, our home office screensaver is set to a picture showing Dee (right)

Former Waukesha Alderman E. Vitale added some sought-after words on a mystery person from the past.
Age considering, Vito looks pretty good today.

'Vito' V. kindly set up a tableau of some of his press clips on a side table.

After much rollicking
we gathered outside for a group photo:

Note:  There will be soon available a complete set of reunion photos
available to anyone who requests same.
We are exploring doing them on a CD probably via Walgreens.
Am in consult with a pc expert.

Would like to keep costs minimal or nothing.

Req. c/o

(I was at first doing this reunion on assignment from the Raccoon
but I got into the spirit of it. - DD)
