Ditto what others have said, especially to those who worked so diligently to organize and conduct the festivities.  Thanks to all who aren't as "local" as they used to be that made the trek back home and regrets to those whose schedules/circumstances might have caused you to miss this time around.  Really enjoyed the present-day stories and reminiscences; it's amazing that we can recall incidents from '71 [and earlier], yet we often forget where we put our car keys.  Cheers to all.wink

Makes me even sadder to have missed it -- but perhaps I'll turn it into extra motivation to be sure to plan our life to be there for the 50th.  Then maybe after that, we should have biannual reunions instead of every 5 years.

Agree with everyone that the reunion was a blast. I was only able to go Saturday night but it was so much fun seeing everyone and dancing to the great music. I tell you, Mouse and The Traps are inspiring as they can still rock ! I want to thank all of the people who worked to put the event together -- everything was perfect as we had Willow Brook to ourselves with good food and beautiful decorations. A final special thank-you to Roy Smith for suggesting I google John Paine and his documentary Luckiest Man. I just did that and what a powerful testimony. The REL class of '71 is very special and I think we all realize how precious are the occasions to get together now and both remember and press forward. JPW

What a great reunion!  Thank you to all who put the event together.  I can't begin to count how many small details must be considered to prepare for the reunion.  The venue and food were the best ever!  We are looking forward to the 50th.  With great appreciation to all!

I hated to miss the re-union, but had a previous committment. Sounds like everyone had a great time!

I, too, had a great time reminiscing.  I have said elsewhere that it is a special thing to be with people that you are so comfortable with that, even after many years have passed, seeing them again is like a conversation begun years ago and easily picked up right where we left off, even with those who I wasn't particularly close to in high school.  We had a really tough drive getting there on Friday with the storms, but I'm glad we did it.  Thanks to all who had a hand in planning this.  Now, forward to Fifty!

Yes, it was the best Reunion ever and I thank the Planning Committee on a GREAT JOB DONE!  Everyone looked great and my husband John surely hated to miss because of his accident.  He came home today after being in the hospital two weeks and he said hello to everyone.  He will be at the 50th for sure.  My niece Julie had a great time taking his place and being a 1994 graduate of REL, she liked our group much better.  Take care everyone and thanks for the memories.

Well it was my FIRST reunion and I really only had a handful of friends in high school , not to be a downer , things at home were not the best and so opportunities to participate in lots of different activities in school were not available for me. But this group of people could not have made me feel more special or loved. And this made my visit the best I could have ever asked for . School can be difficult for lots of kids , even today. This was  a decision " to go " that I am so happy I made. I connected with many people and look forward to the 50th with much anticipation .  Thank you all for a memorable night. Hope everyone made it home safe & hope this darn auto correct does not write something stupid !! Lol !

Sorry to miss what sounds like a great time. If you don't go, there's always the risk of being talked about without being able to defend yourself, but, oh well, it just wasn't in the cards this year. Would have loved to see everyone. Look forward to the big "50"!

Mike Sturrock

I really enjoyed seeing those who could come join us and my wife, who is from the "other" school in town (HA!) really enjoyed it too.  We probably did have a great time at the previous reunions, but nobody remembers now!!!  I have tried to tell people who don't attend ours or even reunions somewhere else they are missing really great Huggathons!

That said, thanks again to those who made it and those who made it happen and I don't mean to get corny, but

love and hugs to all because it is what the world needed more of back then and still needs more of now!!

Darlene Ellison (Foy)

Mike, you said it just right . YOUR wife Theresa made my visit so much fun .... she is a real gem. Tell her I said so. The memories we got to share of Allen were so awsome ...... It was as if he was there at the reunion with us. She is just a bundle of fun, fun ,fun. .

Bill Fox

Don't worry Heckman. Jimmy Moore showed up and we did talk about you.


05/06/16 07:51 AM #70    

 

Larry Terry

Yeah, Don.  We were VERY disappointed we didn't get to share those stories with your wife.

Steve Turman

I'm sorry also to have missed it; my dad died in mid-February and I've had to coordinate my trips to Tyler with executor duties and helping my mom with house repairs and other practical stuff.  It so happens that Robbie Roberts was in country and in Tyler when my dad was dying, so I had a good visit with him; he updated me about Johh Paine--a tough deal.  It was great to see all the pictures from the reunion, and read these comments.  Jimmy Moore!!  Dude, it's been a long time.

Don Heckmann

Ha! Exactly what I was talking about. Sorry to miss you guys, and Jimmy Moore, who I haven't seen since we graduated! Hopefully we all connect at 50, God willing!

Rusty Mitchum

Don, Steve Morby and I discussed (or maybe it was cussed) you at length.  It was somethin' to do with eggs and a short incarceration of some kind.  I'm sure it has probably slipped your mind, bein' as old as you are and all.  Sure glad cell phone photos hadn't been invented back then.

I have posted some the reunion pictures on profile, if you are interested.

Don Heckmann

Ha! Another story from Mitchum & Morby about an incident that is so much funnier now than it was back then (huh, Rusty?). For the life of me, I just can't remember whose "Einstein" idea that was! Fun times!


05/10/16 11:34 AM #76    

Scott Reeves

Right! Like that was the only Heckmann story floating around. Most probably only marginally true, but who cares?you shoulda been there to protect yourself. Reasonable!

Cindy Smith (Hill)

Thank you for sharing the reunion photos!  I almost feel as if I had attended; it was so good to see everyone having fun.  Sorry to have missed and looking forward to the 50th reunion.

Roxy Rudd (Kirk)

Well, I got the slide show of the reunion and it's great ! I got sentimental, then I laughed, then I saw some eyes looking where they should not of been looking . it was very funny.  Lol I had them put music to the show and it's really good. I will enjoy it and if anyone wants to see it just let me know. Take care everyone, Roxy

Roxy - I would love to see the pics. Let me know where to go to find them. Everyone who planned & executed this reunion and the last one are "first class". This is not to say the other reunions were not; it's just that I couldn't attend due to "real-world" events.

David Conklin

I for one am amazed at the lack of understanding of the importance of our military.  Not just current, though without them China and Russia would be our leaders, but past military to defend 'our' American freedoms and values around the world.  I hope our Veterans know, I KNOW how important you are!  HAPPY VETERANS DAY!

Linda Davidson

David, thanks for your post acknowledging Veterans Day.  I agree wholeheartedly with your opinion.  Being from a family of veterans (father, uncles, and all three brothers), I am aware of the sacrifices of our heros in uniform.  One of my uncles served in the Korean War and one brother served in Viet Nam.  A belated happy Veterans Day to you, David.  And thank you for your service!   Linda

Your words touched me Linda.  My thanks to all the patriotism displayed in your family too!
