In the not quite small world dept: this week i was in DC for the opening of a photo exhibition (pictures of the crowd who came to see the Apollo XI launch fifty years ago.) On Thursday i was at the White House hoping to get some access to the President, as i hadn’t been there for a year or so, and am trying to keep my Presidential coverage going forward (it started with a picture of JFK at the hotel Utah in1963) Because it was a tight pool situation (a reduced crew of tv people and cameramen for space reasons) I was unable to attend Trumps presentation of the Medal of Freedom to race driver and business mogul Roger Penske. “But I know Mrs Penske - we went to high school together...”. Well it turned out not to be quite persuasive enough Im afraid. But the former Kathy Hulbert (class of 65 historian) was in the paper and on the wire yesterday in pictures from the ceremony. About 25 years ago, while leaning an Indy car race in Nazareth PA, i walked past the Penske both just as Kathy was leaving. Reintroduced my self after 30+ years, had a hug... and when her kids said something modestly disparaging about “that school you always drive us around to when we go to Salt Lake?” I reminded the kids that “at this very moment, if we really wanted to, your mom and I could belt out the” Olympus Night Song “ .....i waiter for their fears of embarrassment to pass, and just reminded them that, yes, we COULD HAVE sung it - but we let them of easy. I think she enjoyed that moment as much as i did. I was sorry i to miss her this week....

the picnic at Sugar House park was fantastic. I loved seeing all the great old friends and renewing the memories. Thanks to all for the hard work. Let's do it again, sooner, and maybe with less stress, at shorter intervals. The drive down to St. George last night was full of memories as I tried to picture each person I interacted with at the picnic. I hope everyone left with the same warmth and genuine gratitude for the parts so many have played in each other's lives, which have lasted more than 55 years.

A hearty congratulations is due for David Burnett. David's pictures from the Apollo 11 launch back in 1969 are featured in the July 29th current issue of Time Magazine (cover attached). The four page article with seven of his photos begins on page 38. Only 22 at the time, David is quoted, describing the scene at Titusville, FL, as follows: "It was the most unorganized organized event I think I've ever been to." Unfortunately, the article doesn't mention that David is a member of the Olympus High Class of '64. ;-)
See you on Saturday!

Dave...It's been fun to see you pictures over the years. I hope you're bringing your famous camera to immortalize our 55th get-together.

The 55th Summer Party is coming up soon:    
DATE: August 10, 2019
PLACE: Hidden Grove Pavillion at Sugar House Park
TIME: 3:00 pm to 10:00 pm
FOOD: Pot luck lunch or dinner (your option). Sodas and punch provided.
Several people have volunteered on the Home Page. Please indicate where you would like to help and if you would like to coordinate that area.
Some areas where help is needed:
Program: Kristie Tolman, etc.
Music
3 signs are needed (Real estate type)
Some green and gray balloons
If we want pictures displayed we need a board
Punch: Lamont Tate and Jenny Marie Lind, etc
Name tags: Wilhelmsen Brothers
Cookies: Mark Heugly, Dan Maxwell, etc
Table Coverings:
Big Cake: Pam Smith
I think "bring your own food" is easiest unless someone wants to coordinate "Pot Luck"
Vending isn't allowed in the park but we could have a food truck on 13th east which borders the Hidden Grove Pavillion (it's an uphill hike to the street). How many would want to buy food? Who wants to check it out?
Other ideas?
There are 4 BBQ pits if anyone is interested. Also a fireplace. Wood?

Life is short Dave. Enjoy and appreciate it. Something we should all consider.

what terribly sad news about Dave Paulsen.. we'd probably been in touch more on here than in all three years at OHS, but then again that is the charm and gift of these modern ways to communicate. All the things you were too shy, too bashful, too stupid to say to someone, well now you can just do it and you won't be sent to detention. Dave and I were back and forth on some fun & funny posts on Facebook... and like so many who have gone, you simply can't believe that another one of us has been taken so early. It's just plain sad.

I assume the survey results released today are not current. Is there a new survey in preparation?

I just talked with Harv Cahoon because I couldn't find the NEW SURVEY for the 55th get together on our web page. It is clear down on the bottom of the Home Page. So you can go there to indicate if you are coming and if you would like to volunteer. It's a free event. It would be helpful to know how many are hoping to come.

HEY TITANS OF 1964: It sounds like a lot of classmates are disappointed about the cancellation of the reunion this summer. Vaughn Alvey and I are paying for a pavilion (Hidden Grove) in Sugar House Park from 3:00 PM to 10:00 PM on Saturday, August 10th. You are all invited. It seats 250 people for a pot luck late lunch/early dinner. Someone bring name tags and we'll talk old times.

Harvey....I had a nice visit with Bob Bacon by phone today and he's excited that we're getting together this summer. He thinks he'll be able to make it to the Sugar House get together in August. He felt bad that so few responded to the original plans so was unable to put an official reunion together. It'll be good to visit with whomever can come, no matter if it's just a few. I hope you'll be available. Thanks for all you do with this web site.
