So sorry to have missed the 55th reunion. Looks like a good many of our class did get there.  I look forward to some pictures (I'm still one of the few who doesn't do facebook, so I know I miss a lot). I had thought I might get back in time to get to Madison for the 7-8th, but that didn't work out. Gave a lousy paper in Coimbra, Portugal at the end of June. Got back to find numerous 2017 computer problems still plaguing all my equipment, making it impossible for me to get any work done. But Im still hoping to make it to Madison in late August, early Sept. Hope you all had a glorious time recounting old and sharing new stories.

"The Hafe" was a remarkable leader, and teacher. When a sophomore, the day I got cut from the basketball team Don was waiting outside the gym door. He put his arm around my shoulder and said, "How would you like to wrestle this Saturday?" Winning that match was just the beginning of a life lesson.  (Brek Johnson -- you never did take me down!) I later refereed my first WIAA dual in 1973, and continued wearing the stripes for 20 years. Well Done Mr. Hafeman! Respectfully, R. Workinger

Hi to All

One of our classmates, and one of my dearest friends, U. S. Army 1LT Harry B.Hambleton III, died on September 8th, 1968, as a result of his service to our country.  He was a great guy, and followed his father's call into the military.  Just thought it was about time on the anniversary of his death tomorrow that some of us paused and gave a brief thought about him and what he stood for.

His information is posted on the Virtual Wall, , but like many brief summaries of a person's life, doesn't really do him justice.  If you knew him, you'd be proud to have done so.

Regards to all,

I look forward to the reunon on Aug 13. How did the years go by so fast?  I like the idea of a light catered affair. Outside in a shelter if possible in case it rains. Thank you Peter and committee for organizing this.

It doesn't look like we're getting a very good response to the reunion.  Any idea how many are planning to come?

Peter Krug

Judi, 39 people (28 class members and 11 guests) definitely plan to attend the reunion. Eight other class members have reported that they probably (or maybe) will attend. Five class members have said they do not plan to attend. As you can see, we have not received responses from many class members. If you perhaps know people who have not responded, we would appreciate it if you would encourage them to respond to our "Update and Requests" announcement that is posted here at the class website. Thank you! Peter Krug

This bracelet was in Pat Kelly's possessions....

Any ideas on source??     Anyone?

Rod Shaughnessy

Hi Ulrich:

On the back of the silver-colored one, "1962", should be engraved, indicating the year of graduation.  I'm not sure about the other two.

Hi -- Sorry, I won't be able to get to the reunion—my God 105° heat index—but I may be back in the area in September, as there's supposed to be a big to-do about that ancient student observatory I used to be involved with. Besides, the fall leaves are so nice to look at.

But best wishes to everyone, and have fun!

Hi Gang, love you all dearly.... but August 13th is my wife's 70th and our 43rd anniversary. Hmmmm ... tough choice. LOL Have fun, tell stories of the "Glory Days" (Bruce S.) and lots of pix for those of us unable to attend.

Hi All,

Bob and I will not be attending the reunion. Our last cross country trip was 2019. We continue to stay well, praise the Lord! Don't know when we will travel again. August 13 is our 56th anniversary! 
Enjoy the reunion, and post pics, 😊 Kathy

Ted Tarkow

Suzy Petersen ( and Ted Tarkow (  are curious to learn whether any of you coming from out of town for reunion festivities scheduled for Saturday, August 13 might want to get together for a drink and dinner Friday night, August 12.  We don't have details yet (in fact, we're eager for suggestions*) but  thought we'd get the ball rolling for suggestions. And depending on what responses we get, we may need to make reservations.  Of course, hosts of out-of-towners are welcome to join us!!
**One possibility: Quivey's Grove (
