Well Class of 72
Carol and I are up for a group cruise into the Caribbean in
early Jan or Feb 07, or a get together in Bismarck 28 July 07 at
a nice hotel…. Never-the-less after 35 years we just have to
get us all together…. We not getting any younger……J
PS: If we think about a cruise we would get a real good group
rate and there is so much stuff to do all you do is join us and
everything else is at our finger tips…They have conference rooms
where we can get together and socialize as well as spending time
together at all the pools etc…. That would be my # 1 pick…

Note From Don
We are no longer going
through the group booking desk for those that want to join us for a
January 2007 cruise, see copy of email below. Please note that when
she talks about having discounts for military personnel, she is
talking about all Veterans, however she said that the number of
military fares available was limited and once that number are sold,
they become unavailable for that particular cruise. So book early!
Hope to see as many as possible on the cruise and here in ND next

P.S. YOUR REFERRALS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
It was wonderful to hear about the
reunion plans. I can't believe it was that long ago that we
attended Hebron High. I am looking forward to whatever is
planned. How about a riverboat dinner and dance? Just a
suggestion. Maybe just doing it in Hebron would be ok for
people coming back, they could stay with family at the same time
as attending the reunion. If you need any help, let me know. My
Good to hear from you.
idea!! So many years, so many memories of the great times when
"we had all the answers"! I have always missed Hebron and
wanted to come home. I moved back three weeks after my daughter
graduated in Jamestown. I've been here almost 3 yrs. now living
in my parents home.
It's been a change. No more cars cruising "Main".
Joe's burned and had to be torn down. The theater is back
for good, I hope! Main street may have changed, but the
memories are still there.
A cruise sounds fantastic! Craig (my senior
prom date to Wibaux, MT) will have to sneak us all aboard on
a classified cruise liner!
hotel in Bismarck would be my suggestion. It's close enough for
those wanting to visit families and check out Hebron again. And
many are within driving distance.
And to Nancy Sailer, if Don will get into a swimsuit, so can
we! I'll have to buy one first!
Barb, when are you going to show your age?
Sandy, it's time you made the trip to Hebron!
Don, if you haven't grown up by 50, you don't
Craig, I had a great visit with you last summer. What an
amazing and interesting career you have had! It just shows you
that when you apply your "creative" and "mischievous" energy to
good use it pays off!
Stan put his bookkeeping class with Mr. Ding to
good use. What an inspiration Mr. Ding was! Thanks for
sticking with your hometown, Stan!
I rarely see the classmates that live right here
in Hebron. That's unfortunate. We are all so into family and
busy with just making a living that we rarely bump into each
other. It seems like we need this extra push to get together.
just want to say I am grown up, I am grown up, and I am going to
hold my breath until I turn blue and Doreen takes it back! Don)
(I received this via snail mail)
I don't do Emailing so thought that I'd let you know my vote for the
reunion. I like the idea of having it here in Bismarck at a hotel.
Either eating out at a nice place Saturday night or if the hotel
serves fine food we could eat there. I don't vote for a dance,
partly cuz I don't, but also I've found it hard to visit through the
noise of the dance music. Being able to hang out with friends and
visit is more important to me then the noise. I don't know what but
there might be other things we could do if we have it here in
Bismarck. (Zoo or I don't know?) Others might have idea's. That's
all I know for now. Just thought I'd give you my vote. Thank you.
Thanks for initiating this. I am sending this brief message to
acknowledge your letter and to indicate that Mary and I are already
talking about this event. Bismarck or Dickinson would be fine.
You mentioned several classmates that left Hebron before
graduating. I do not recall all the names, so I am copying Nancy on
Maybe she and Ken can help fill in the gaps. Most of these were
in grade school so they likely predated your time in Hebron, Don.
Paul S. was in the first grade with Mrs. Funk.
Larry Ro??? left about the second grade
??? Ginger left soon after he dad died in the 4th ?? grade.
Barb Bohr?? was in Hebron for several years.
There was a farm family (I believe they lived SW of Hebron) who
attended about the 3rd and 4th grade. One boy was our age; another
was a year older. I have no recollection of their last name but
recall that one of them (perhaps the older one) was Zeke.
Nancy -- do any of these five "ring a bell?" Were there others?
|Hey David, believe it or not I do remember a few!! I did come up
with a few of the names that Don provided but you have listed a few
more that we did not think about. I do remember Larry Roerich and
Barbara Bohr. I just thought of another one Barry Jones.
I just talked to Kennan and he just amazed me with a few
names--the man who can't remember who he met just two hours ago!!!
He said it was Paul Scheck and Gayla Gienger. I was also friends
with Judy Garland in 3rd grade, she was blind.
I do have a scrap book at home with lots of grade school pictures
I will take some time this weekend to look through it.
I am so enjoying Don's web site, it is great that he has taken
this project on. I told Kennan this should be really fun. I have
been in touch with Don a few times but have not provided any ideas
just yet, I am still trying to think of something.
Keep in touch and we will see you in about a year!
