Holiday Inn, I-90 & Route 31, Elgin, IL
We recently attended Jacquelynn Richardson's graduation, our granddaughter as well as she is Henry and Judy (Kawa) Richardson's granddaughter. Naturally it rained but no problem it was inside at the new Sears Center, Hoffman Estates. Each student's name flashed over a lighted board during the ceremony.
I can remember some bits and pieces of our graduation but I doubt I paid attention to the speakers, being anxious to get on with my future.
It's hard to believe 45 years have passed so quickly (16,425 days). But it is real and here we are preparing to celebrate another reunion.
Let's not forget the 50 plus classmates no longer with us. Our lives have changed especially the last five years. We can not only remember the past, but talk about our surgeries, aches and pains as well as what we have been up to these past years. It will still be great to see and visit as we celebrate 45 years since graduation. Our goals have changed, leisure and travel are always great topics.
Your committee anxiously awaited the 18th of August and another chance to enjoy each other. We are grateful to Lois Bradley Coombs for her work on the class book. Your bios are always interesting and I recommend keeping the book as you travel to see new sun rises and sunsets.
Always feel free to contact our web site at www.elgin62.com. A special thanks to Roger Petersen for creating such a wonderful site for our class.
PS: May our future be bright and pleasant!
