Dear Classmates,
Our 50th (or Golden) anniversary of graduating from St. Mary's prep at Orchard Lake (a.k.a) OLSM will be coming up this May of 2019.
We all have good and some bad memories about our time at school.
Who can forget:
Making a pyramid or 'M' at basketball games.
Moving Norbert's white Corvair into the church.
Galazka almost getting kicked out along with Krause and Ksiaszkewicz for taking the van to get parts for Krauses's motorcycle. And don't forget this was retreat!
Tim setting the school record for the most points score in a basketball game.
Dances at Regina's and I think it was Ladywood High School in Livonia.
Watching Laugh-in in the senior rec room.
That darn wake-up buzzer from Dave and Joe's room.
Wotta!! Either you loved or hated him. His spitting and yelling, telling stories of playing basketball when he was young.
And him asking for all our notebooks because he thought we were all cheating!! We took a picture off us all giving the finger while holding the notebooks.
The skits in the gym, like when Fred imitated 'Twitch' by moving his arms and knocking over the altar boys on both sides of him.
Zientek's infamous skits (Medley of Motown) about imitating black groups, with Dul stealing the show!
Galazka Playing his music too loud (innagadadavida) and Zeeb's came and took the record.
Track, cross-country, football, basketball, baseball and other sports.
We all have memories, impressions of each other.
Did you know Galazka never went to church? He was excused do to some sort of anxiety attacks.
We all have diiferent lives now.
Married and divorced and maybe re-married.
Children and even grand-children.
Some have passed on yet others are the most precious things (or people) we have in our lives.
We may have lost some hair but gained some weight.
Who would have thought that we would have cell-phones or computers (right in our house).
Be able to talk to each other by Email or Skype or any other type of media?
Mp3 players that fit in you pocket.
We've come long way since 1969.
Will there be a 50th re-union? Well it's up to you.
Please let us know your thoughts (good or bad) about the reunion.

Thanks for your help,

So far we are intending to have the reunion of just the guys from 12 noon until 5:00. After that you can bring your significant other if desired.
As far as food and drink for our get together from noon until 5:00 I think we should have hamburgers and hot dogs, potato chips and pretzels. As far as the drinks, I figure regular and diet Pepsi and Coke. We should also have beer but what kind?
I would like your opinion on the food and drinks we will have at our personal meeting from noon until 5:00pm.

Jim
