Find here notes about circumstances and special developments the reunion committee is aware of that they thought you might like to know.


  • UPDATE: Jeff Froehlich - Just before the reunion we learned Jeff suffered a heart attack over the weekend of July 22nd. Jeff and his wife Sharon were some of the reunion's first and most enthusiastic supporters - and we were sadden to think we would miss getting to see them.  Well, Jeff showed us all how tough he is when he showed up for the reunion dispite his recent health scare. SPEEDY AND FULL RECOVERY JEFF!  Notes can be sent to: 1833 Judy Drive, Kronewetter, WI 54455.

Special NOTES

  • In addition to sending her regrets that she would not be able to attend the 50-year reunion, East's American Field Service (AFS) exchange student Judy Stephen Spence from South Africa sent along some pictures and great note.  The committee thought her efforts exceded that of a simple regret and wanted to post in a more prominent way.  Find below a picture of Judy (left), and one with her husband Ian (right).
