Hi Classmates!

As some of you suggested, we have our own Facebook page! Brand new & in need of friends, it's named the same as the website: White Bear High 1973. Instead of posting announcements of deaths & birthdays on this site they'll be done on FB. Birthday wishes as well. If you need a card sent, just drop a note on our FB page & one will be sent. Thanks to Eunice who is the Admin for our website, lots of us know automatically of birthdays, so I will use that info to post it on FB & to the classmate via their FB pg. Hopefully, having a FB pg. will a) keep you from constantly seeing my face every time I add to the world's longest conversation thread & b) keep the website clear for official notices for our class from Eunice. Please visit, like & invite other classmates to visit & contribute to our Facebook page & join the website as well.

REMEMBER: THE WEBSITE WILL BE THE OFFICIAL PAGE FOR NOTICES TO OUR CLASS (although I'll try to echo them on FB in hopes of catching everyone.

Thanks guys & see you on Facebook, I hope!

Have you visited, liked & friended our new class Facebook page? Other classmates have & it's been fun to hear what's become of them, reminisce or make friends that you never had the chance to waaaay back in '73. Birthday wishes are posted there as well as info on classmates who are facing a challenge & would like encouragement from an unexpected source.

Of course it's been a long time & we were only all together for such a short time, but those were such IMPORTANT years, those last days of childhood.

We're waiting for you....

Of course I remember Fuad Bizri. He was so exotic for WBL! How is he, Char?

So, I attended our 45th H.S. reunion this past weekend and either you were there or you missed it and I talked to you or I didn’t.  Either way, I know I had a great time and in my extroverted way let everyone know exactly how I felt about my high school memories. It was all in good fun! I would like to thank the entire reunion team (you know who they are) for their continued efforts in making our reunion events happen. I am sincere in my offer to assist (long distance) in the planning of the 50th reunion. I would like to encourage everyone to fill out their profiles on the WBL Class of 73 website.  Please include a previous and present photo and a short synopsis of your life thus far. Also, if you know someone on the “missing classmates” list, please ask them to do the same. With the limited amount of time we have to talk to each other at an event, this information is very helpful. Thanks and see you in 5 years.

The Reunion was FABULOUS! Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to plan it; I had a great time seeing everyone and catching up. Loved Karen Pew's "survey" and talk.

A few of us are interested in having a mini reunion sometime in Sept. at the 617, owned by our friend, Mary Wigstrom. We had so much danged fun last year that we wanna do it again!
This will be a casual, drop-in thing, so no tickets to buy. We'd like to know if you'd come to this, 'tho so we can let Mary know if there's 5 or 50 of us,
Consider attending. We'll be sad if you don't show up!

I'd be able to come if its before the 10th or after the 18th.  Sounds like fun!

Ed Sheeren says it best "these people raised me & I can't wait to go home". Whether you liked it or not, we helped raise each other during the most important times of our lives; the last years of our childhoods. Even if we weren't friends then, we can be now!

We're meeting on Sept. 21st @ the 617. There will someone there by 7:00 to say howdy to you, but come anytime you'd like.

We're excited to see you!

Holler here if you think you'd like to come. No pressure 'tho. We just want to let Mary Wigstrom know what to expect - 5 or 50 (or more!)

I see we lost a classmate Sue Anderson. I do remember her. She signed my yearbook and I still have a bunch of classmates pictures when we were passing around our yearbooks to sign and exchanging are graduation pictures. Sorry of her passing. Take care all!
