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.

Boo on the cancellation. Was looking forward to the 55th. How many guys and gals do we have to have to get together for a party?

whether they were written yesterday or 5 years ago, Geoffs words live on, as do the memories of our pals, and those of us who have had the joy of life, the gift of age, probably feel this the most.  the losses of friends are something you never get used to.  for years i didnt understand why my dad, in his 70s, pretty much stopped going to funerals.  it wasn't that he didn't care for those friends who passed, but more about his own inability to simply deal with that loss.  I never really understood it, but now it's becoming more clear.   I remain both an optimist and a sentimentalist: i value these moments with friends as much as any thing, and only wish that we were better at making a habit of seeing each other more often.  living out of the Zion Zone, i rarely get back to SLC anymore, but when I do, it is (like the wonderful story in Recapitulation by Stegner) full of emotions that overwhelm, and remind me of how quickly this whole  "life" thing runs it course.   You cannot read Geoffs personal notes and feel that the iniquities and unfairness of life itself are a seemingly unnatural force.  David Bateman should have had a chance to build that fort.  thanks Geoff, to you, too...

Wes,

Looks like another year has slipped past.
Have a nice birthday.
Do you have any time after the first of January to get together for a bit?

Beth's husband Bob sent these words to update us on Beth. I've posted the three photos he sent. -Harv

Hello everybody,

In 1998, Beth wrote a nostalgic look back at her days of childhood and adolescence. I found it among her things in early 2013 (she'd gone to live in memory care just before Christmas 2012). It surfaced again just recently, and I think it's precious enough to be shared with the surviving members of the cast of characters, and I think also with some of Beth's old friends and good friends.

I think just about everybody in the extended family appears somewhere in here -- repeatedly, in many cases. But beyond that, it's a sweet retrospective on growing up in the 50's and 60's.

Perhaps Beth did share this with others at the time she wrote it, but it's been almost two decades and I feel it should be "published" again.

I'm glad to have met and befriended a number of the folks who populate these stories. And I feel privileged to have experienced with Beth our upstate NY summer trips in 2009 and 2011, and our wonderful Long Island nostalgia tour of October 2010 (when she still had her good memory!).

So here is Beth, reminiscing with you on these pages as she can no longer do in person.

--Bob

P.S. The attached photos of us were taken November 14, 2017, at the Thanksgiving Celebration at the Vista Shores facility in New Orleans. Beth always seems to "rise to the occasion" at these times.

Until our 50th Reunion, I had not seen or heard of Pam since our Olympus graduation.  When it was clear she was coming, I looked forward to seeing her again. 

In reflecting on that positive anticipation, I’ve tried to recall why.  Pam and I never dated, and I cannot remember any particular event from our high school days.  Even so, my impression of Pam, which has lasted over a half-century, was of a remarkably pretty girl who treated me, an uber-nerd, with genuine kindness and friendship.  I felt far from worthy, and yet, her capacity for true kindness and thoughtfulness made my high school experience not only more tolerable but truly welcoming and friendly.  Back then, I felt I didn’t deserve to be so regarded by such a cute girl.  Unaccountably to me but true to her character, she was the kind of dear soul who honestly cared for all those around her regardless of their rung on the social ladder. 

It was a delight to reconnect, even though briefly, at the reunion, and I’m deeply saddened that she lost her last battle with disease.  She was a classy lady in the very best sense of those words. 

So disappointed that she is gone.
