Our Arizona residents (and Ellen Aspinwall (Templar), a former Arizona resident) had their annual get-together the last weekend in February 2012, thanks to Ellen's organizing efforts.  A new-comer to the group - and a relatively new addition to our Website - was Larry Heil, who was accompanied by his wife.  Although Kathy Tabler (Blumenfeld-Jones) and her husband weren't at the original gathering, Ellen met up with them later.  Thanks to Ellen Aspinwall (Templar)  for providing these photographs:

 


 

June 25, 2011:  What a beautiful day in Huron for those of us who gathered together in Ellen Aspinwall (Templar's) cottage setting on the lakefront. It was great - as always - to see everyone. Enjoy the slideshow (and scroll down far enought to see the captions!)

 

 

June 5, 2011:  Once again, Ellen Aspinwall (Templar) was the catalyst for a get-together at Rocky River Park, in the pavilion.  Ten classmates and family, spouse or significant others were there.  Rather than caption every picture, we'll list the participants here and you can pick them out from the photos.  It was a beatiful day by the lake, and reminded many of us why we love our little home town.....

Those in attendance (in alphabetical order by name/maiden name):

Ellen Aspinwall (Templar) and daughter Cinnamon and granddaughter Tenee; Mike Callahan; Larry Gilbert and wife Jean (Tootsie Howell-RRHS '61); Al Greenleaf and wife Sherry; Mike Kelley and wife Shirley and granddaughter Lilley; Cliff Obrock; Phyllis Smith (O'Connell); Randy Smith and wife Chris; Carol Walling (Savarda); Nancy Westerfield (Depew).  FROM OTHER CLASSES:  Kent Vanderlan (RRHS '62) and friend Pat; Gary Carlisle (RRHS '65) and friend Barb (RRHS '?)

 


Our hardy group of alumni who have settled in Arizona (quite a few of them) work hard at keeping in touch and getting together - setting a good example for the rest of us.  Although Holly Daugherty (Fash) and husband Bob, who are stalwarts of the group, couldn't be there, four of our classmates were in attendance.  (Spouses were not interested or not available!)

The following selection of shots is from Ellen Aspinwall (Templar)'s sons camera, taken at the 2/27/11 get-together at Ellen's son's home in Tucson.  Thanks to all who attended!

Ellen, thanks for organizing this!!  Let's see more pics of YOU next time.


 

Nancy Westerfield (Depew) and Linda Mannas (Huemmrich) decided that it was a good time for the locals to get together for a pre-Christmas visit, so a bunch of Pirates gathered at Herb's.... Gilbert was a late arrival, but there was a good crowd on time at 6:00 pm.  Thanks to Cliff O'Brock and Nancy Westerfield (Depew) for the photographs!  On hand were Al Greenleaf, Carol Walling (Savarda), Nancy Westerfield (Depew), Randy Smith and wife Chris, Joel Skala, Cliff Obrock, Mike Kelley, Larry Gilbert.


 Shari Piekney (Lane) was in town for a long weekend starting Friday, October 15, and was our most recent inspiration to gather some RRHS '63 classmates together.  A bunch of us gathered at Herb's Tavern ( Rocky River High Annex) the night of the 15th and had some food and drink and a lot of lively conversation.  THANKS, Shari, for being here and getting us together.  Following are some photos taken by Nancy Westerfield (Depew), Al Greenleaf and Larry Gilbert:

Thanks, Bruce McKelvey for being the reason so many of us decided to get together on September 11.  And a BIG thank you to Nancy Westerfield Depew and John Dawson for sending these photos along for posting on the Website.  Can you identify your classmates 47 years later?
