Have a safe and healthy 2019. No broken limbs, crazy knees, sore backs and messed up shoulders. May you stay off ladders, stay away from activities made dangerous by our years and avoid extensive rehab. I am looking forward to seeing everyone in January!

I Rememberr Bill from grade school. He was a good hitter in Baseball, played first base for St Agnes and had his first base man's glove signed by Detroit Tiger, Norm Cash. Bills family lived right behind Franklin's Ice Cream store on Revere. I remember skipping school and us setting up a putt putt golf course in his house. I double dated the Senior prom with him and his girlfriend. We had a great time. Bill and I would do a little drinking on the weekends. One time we decided to have one beer at every bar or place that sold alcohol on Sylvania Avenue. We started at Park lanes hit 7 c's & Rudys then the seaport, penguin club that bowling alley in the basement just passed Belmans and the meeting place. There was a dance place next.. then that little bar by Salegman brothers. Next a German restaurant and the tropics. We tried crossing the street to go to the bowling alley but that was as far as we got. Nice try but no cigar he told me. Billy was a fun guy. He seemed to loose his way after Viet Nam he and He & I lost contact. Turned out agent orange and PTSD had a role in that. I'm gonna miss you buddy and will always remember the good times we had in our youth. OooooRaaaa and RIP my friend

I also remember going out and doing some drinking with Bill. He always enjoyed doing a little partying. My prayers go out to his family.

I remember bill. Did some work for me on my van. Put in a new transmission. Had a few cocktails. Good guy. I think the places you went to pat were the king pin,safari lounge,sares and almost the marathon lanes. Like I said good guy ,I think most people would like to have that moniker when thought of.

Can anyone give me a tip on how to open the flashdrive from the reunion on my Mac?  When I open the vault, all the files are in windows (exe files).  How do I convert to Mac so my computer can read them?  (I called Sue Johnson, but she doesn't know how to do it.) Thanks, Pat

And in breaking news, after reviewing all of our options, and making an on site inspection, Ed and I have made all of the necessary arrangements for this month’s "Fundango.” In doing so, we decided to take a break from the Toledo venues and to experience our next class social event out in the suburbs.

So get out your social calendars and make a notation, that on Tuesday, January 22nd, we will be having our class “Fundango,” out at Maumee's Fallen Timbers shopping center, at the Granite City ( If you need directions on how to get there we have included what will hopefully work as a link: Get Directions
While we made arrangements for our event to begin at 6 and last until whenever, once we were told that they had “Happy Hour” prices on selected foods and beverages from 3 until 6, we told the manager to expect a significant number of us to be there by 5:30.
And, as a bonus social event, to help us to make it through the winter season, we are having a special lunch time “Fundango,” at the Hollywood Casino, at their Epic Buffet, on Friday, February 1st, at 11:30 am, where we will be taking advantage of their special "2 for 1" deal (buy one lunch at $15.99 and get one lunch free). So mark it down on your calendar and arrange your social schedule so that you can take advantage of this great deal while spending some more time with your fellow Spartan classmates.
Hope to see you all there.

I wanted to share the letter below from TPS regarding our class donation to Start High School. Congratulations, Class of '68!

A quick reminder, we are having our class “Fundango,” out at Maumee's Fallen Timbers shopping center, this evening, at the Granite City ( restaurant.  If you need directions on how to get there I have included what will hopefully work as a link: Get Directions. Our social event is scheduled to begin at 6 and last until whenever, but, we have been told that they have “Happy Hour” prices on selected foods and beverages from 3 until 6, so we told the manager to expect a significant number of us to be there by 5:30.

On a side note, I was recently in Bowsher High School, and while there, I noticed that the “Dunsmore Drum” was sitting there in the Bowsher display case. I was initially very pleased to see it because I was thinking that our once tradition of having a Start vs. Bowsher rivalry trophy had been revived. But then, upon some reflection, I remembered that Start beat Bowsher in football this year (I think for at least the last two years), and I am now guessing that the rivalry trophy tradition has been discontinued and that the Dunsmore Drum is currently on display at Bowsher on a permanent basis. If I am correct, then I would be disappointed.

You should have opened the case and brought it back to Roy C Start
