Jackie Bertram, wife of our classmate San Burtram, recently reported that Dan had some kind of episode similar to a seizure on June 15, 2018.  He was taken by ambulance to the hospital where extensive test were performed on his brain, heart, arteries were performed.  Fortunately, all test results were good.  An entire neurological workup is planned.  Jackie and Dan are hopeful that the test results will enable them to join us for our 75th Class Birthday Party on July 19th.





Remember those days of sodas at the Olympia, noon-time "sock hops" in the Old Gym at the old high school, the fabulous music of the Golden Age or Rock and Roll?  We will be able to bring back those and many other memories at our Class 75th Birthday Party to be held on July 19, 2018.  We’ve found the perfect place.  It’s a recreated and restored 1950s diner and entertainment facility on a farm just south of Dodge Center.  It’s an amazing place.  In fact, a perfect place to celebrate our 75th birthday year.  All the information regarding the event can be seen in the link below. Check it out and decide whether or not you can join us. Then answer the survey so that we know how many people plan to attend.  It’s going to be a blast.
