what a fun night to see so many great people we grew up with that helped shape our lives.  thanks to Kip, Janet, Bill, Neil, Scott, Kathy, and all who pit in a lot of time and effort, very well done.

A  few  items, moving forward:

1.  We need a network page to help our kids find jobs or investigate careers and options.   Our daughter has thought of the medical industry, or the travel industry, and Robin and Lauri had some great insight for us on that and offered more help if needed.  Many classmates like this idea.   David and Karalee. Met calf offered some ideas on spring baseball in AZ!

2.  I spoke with a few more classmates who are willing to step up, and for the 40 th bash, it would be really fun to be able to go to Sundance, or Zermatt, and get rooms paid for, plus the venue and dinner  and have a two day and two night bash.  Work in some entertainment, or sports events.   It might be interesting to bring in some entertainment for the non PHS spouses, while classmates are catching up.  Have the event completely paid for, so everyone can come at no cost, other than their travel

3.  Perhaps coordinate with Timpview, and the second evening is a joint party with Timpview

For many years, I lived life cautiously, wishing I could a, would a, should a.  The last several it has been more of, if tormoorow never comes, have no regrets!   That is the road less travelled, and it is worth every step.  It will be fun to get 75 percent of our classmates to the event, and make it worth the effort to travel. Doug Westphall, start making those plans to get up here from Miami, Randy and Mellissa, Europe is only 11 hours of fluting away, Trevan and Sondra, everything is bigger and better in Texas, but our Utah mountains.

Someone, set the date for 2019, and let's have a big party!

Extra ordinary people

it was also interesting to hear of some incredible lives lived by our classmates.  Went all through a Sunset View elementary, Dixon and PHS with Duane Woolsey, a great person who didn't have it easy.  It didn't surprise me that he served our country, or donated his kidney to his brother, but is was nice to know some of the things Duane had done, shared by a classmate.  and Duane, next time you need to be there so we can honor your personally.  I know through family that Marry Ellen Larsen has helped so many her whole life, it was fun to sit at your table ME.  Keep up the good work!   This was a nice touch to the reunion as well.  And for those who missed it, Mike Marshall put an excellent presentation on all those who have served our great country, thanks to those who serve, and thanks mike! a well done slide show!

Thank you to everyone that made our 35th reunion great.  I had a great time.  i sure wish more people would of came. This class always has our reunions at the best places.  when i tell people where our reunion is going to be held, they cant beleive it.  Theirs are mostly held in their school gym.

Don Peay, thanks for mentioning me and my sons.  It is awesome having sons that love this country enough to volenteer to protect it.  It really made me feel good.  This is the best class to ever come out of provo high!

I loved that you honored all of the people that have served our country..!

I ALSO WANT TO THANK WHO EVER DID THE CANDLES FOR THE CLASSMATES THAT WE HAVE LOST. I ALMOST COULDNT WALK OVER TO SEE IF THERE WAS ONE FOR MARYANN ISOM. AND WHEN YOU LITE THE CANDLES, I HAD TEARS RUNNING DOWN MY FACE.  I FELT LIKE MAYBE SHE WAS THERE WITH US.  SHE WAS AN AWESOME BEST FRIEND STARTING IN KINDERGARTEN AT SUNSET VIEW, THEN DIXON AND PROVO HIGH!   WE HAVE LOST TO MANY PEOPLE IN OUR CLASS.  BUT TO HONOR THEM THE WAY YOU DID WAS WONDERFUL...  THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOME OF MY HEART!

Well, as far as I am concerned, our little get together at Zermatt was a hit. It seems we all had a great time reacquainting with old friends and having an excellent dinner and entertainment. I want to thank everyone that came and my only regret is not being able to spend more time with more of you.
I have to be honest and say I did not expect the response that was received for the Military tribute presentation, but I was very touched by the standing ovation to all who served in the military. I tried to honor the service members we went to school with and acknowledge all that have served in our Armed Forces and by the response, I honored them proudly. Thank you for the warm and wonderful acknowledgment.

A big thank you to all of the folks who worked so hard to put this wonderful evening together.  Brenda and I had a fantastic time catching up with old friends and making some new ones.  I'm sorry I waited 35 years to finally go to my first high school reunion.  Well worth the effort.

I echo many of the sentiments posted about last nights's reunion and add my own expression of gratitude to all the great efforts of the committee, and also to everyone who made an effort to attend. It seemed like every hug or hello just filled my spirit. Our common history gives us something great to celebrate together. It also seems that the 35 years we've lived since high school have given us all even more in common. No matter where our different paths have taken us, we've all lived lots of real life now, and it's so wonderful to visit and share our joys and struggles. I only wish conversations could have lasted longer, and I would like to encourage everyone, myself included, to make more effort to keep profiles updated and keep conversations going via email or other avenues. Take good care, everyone, and may God bless you all! See you in five years!

Thanks to all those on the committee, those that donated, and anyone that contributed to a great evening.  Thanks for all your work.  It was a success.

PARTY AT CAROLEE'S HOUSE!

 

Good to see everyone the other evening.  Great job by the committee to get this organized.  Unfortunately I was unable to talk to as many as I would have liked which brings up the reason for writing this. 

 

So this is kind of a running joke about how we usually see people we haven't seen in a while and tell each other, hey let's get together sometime and do something, but then we never do.  So with that in mind and using it as a background theme for a lot of our conversations after pictures were taken, we kept saying, "Party at Carolee's House!".  So instead of of it being like so many new year's resolutions, Carolee has indeed decided to have a party at her house (where she grew up in oak hills).  If you're still in town, or close by, the get together is planned for Tuesday night, 7/8, from 7-10 pm.  It's a little sudden but if you can make it it would be great to see you again.  Afterwards we're toilet papering the high school.  Contact Carolee for details because if you ask my wife, I'm not that responsible.

I would like to add a note as well!  what a fun evening the reunion was.  I loved watching so many of you reconnecting. It was wonderful to see friends reuniting through hugs, high 5's and slaps on the back.  I was so happy to see you all as well, just wish I could have spent a few more minutes with each of you.   I know these situations can often be akward and intimidating, but after the first few minutes those feelings seemed to melt away.  It was so fun to put our "older faces" with names and yearbook pics. Thanks to Scotty G for those awesome mementos! I think Pete Christensen wins the prize for the person that truly hasn't changed a bit!  Pretty sure his picture today would look exactly like his photo 35 years ago!

You are truly a group that is one in a million!  Thanks for the memories old and New.  Looking forward to seeing many of you soon, and for sure in 5 years.

Thanks to all the commitee for the hard work, many hours spent, and helping make it the Magical evening it turned out to be!  The tribuits were fantastic, the M.C.'s Fun, and the venue perfect! Thanks to all of you for making the effort to attend!  It wouldn't have been the same without you there!

Ditto.  I almost chickened out of attending--so very glad I didn't!  My spirits were lifted by mingling with all of you.  Many thanks for the hours and hours of creative effort and just plain hard work in preparation for that wonderful event.  Definitely a happy memory in my book.

Thank you all for a great evening. The committee did a great job. All your hard work was well worth it. Those who couldn't make it, missed out. I look forward to seeing you all in five years from now.

A good portion of my friends got split up our senior year and graduated at timpview. Any chance those folks were given Ann invite? If not, let's do it !!!!

Todd,

A few things in response to your comment. First, if you look at the bottom of our list of class profiles, there are about 60 guest members, many of them Timpview alums. So they are notified when announcements are put up on the website, and they get the same emails you do. Second, our Timpview friends are invited to our reunion as long as they purchase a ticket in advance, and the same is true of Provo alums who would like to attend Timpview's reunion. So if that is of interest to you, I would encourage you to sign up as a guest on Timpview's website (timpview79.com). And finally, there has been talk of perhaps doing some kind of joint event like we did ten years ago. Did you go the joint picnic at Rock Canyon Park? However, there would need to be people willing to step up to work on it. Our committee has enough to do with just our reunion, but if you and others would would take the lead, I'm sure there would be interest. And I don't think you'd need to be local to organize an event like that. So let me know if that is something you'd be willing to do, and I'll pass your name on to the Timpview reunion planners.

Carolee Wilkinson (Adams)

Just booked my flight from Boston to SLC!  Hope you all are registered for the 40th reunion because I want to hang out with each of you!  We've all had 40 years of life lessons and I'm the first to admit I have had my fair share of the school of hard knocks!  Just know that I am so grateful for the friendships this school has connected me with.  From high school friendships to wonderful connections later in life,  I feel like I struck the Lottery to grow up in an area surrounded by epic classmates!  Hope you all will make the effort to come! See you July 6th!  

Hugs to all, Carolee Wilkinson (Adams)

Just wanted to give a shout out to the committee that planned the 20th reunion and created this website.  In high school Glen Bowen and I weren't what you'd call friends.  Acqaintenances is more accurate.  Due to a common memory of a humiliating experience in Physiology senior year, (I'm looking at you, Dave Collins) we connected through the website and at the reunion.  (Can I just say that Glen is hilarious in his writing and in person.)  A few years after that I was diagnosed with melanoma and reached out to ask Glen a question.  He immediately called me, explained the procedure I needed to have, got me scheduled with the surgeon, and figuratively held my hand throughout the process.  This was an especially stressful time in my life as it was just a few months before my mother passed away from a debilitating disease.  Glen was, and continues to be, a real blessing in my life.  I would have missed that blessing if not for the website and the reunion.  So, a big thank you to them and him.

There were a lot of cliques in high school, but at that 20th reunion, and each one since, there has always been such a warm and welcoming feeling at the reunions.  We truly were blessed to go to school with wonderful people.  Thanks to the committees that have made them happen.

That's very kind, Jearlene. And I agee that Glen is awesome! We've been best friends since elementary school. He has a great sense of humor and he's been a terrific friend. I hope you'll make it to the reunion this year and that you'll register ASAP. We could have a supreme court reunion. ;-)

Scott Woolley

Thanks Jearlene for sharing.  I remember Glen as a very kind, thoughtful, and funny guy. Reading your post has motivated me to come to the reunion. We have so many wonderful people in our class.  I hope I can make it work to be there.  Thanks to all who are making this happen!

Hey Scott! Please do come if you can. It would be great to see you! :-)
