1. Who is Coming
We are approaching the Reunion weekend, and the following classmates have given us some indication, whether verbal to a reunion committee member, or by actual signup, that they will be attending at least one activity during the reunion weekend:

Tom Amberg, Bruce Clement, Byron Francis, Jim Francis, Larry Goldfarb, John Grote, George Guernsey, Charlie Hager, Kipp Johnson, Mack Kennedy, Peter Krone, Chris McCluney, Tim Mitchell, Jim Morgan, Ted Noland, Elliot O'Reilly, Sandy Peters, John Rouse, Scott Schirmer, Hugh Scott, Tom Seeger, Mike Shepley, John Shuchart, Bill Simpson, Jim Smith, Robin Starr, Skip Stein, Richard Tao, Robert Wenzel,  Grant Williams, Ross Woolsey.

Its highly likely that we have missed someone, and we may have included someone whose plans have changed, but we think this is pretty accurate. Please let us know if you spot any errors.

2. Activity Sign Up
We'd like to make one last request to any of you reading this who have yet to sign up for the activity you are planning on attending. Just click on the Activity Sign Up tab on the left, and voila!, in seconds it will be done. Much appreciated. 

3. Class Gift
Anyone interested in finding out more information about the Class Gift to the School, and where your contribution is actually going, should contact Class Agent Morgan directly, either at (602) 430-7764 or jim@morganconstructionco.com

4. Survey
At the top of the Home page is a tab marked Survey.  If you click on it, you will have an opportunity to anonymously answer a short list of questions about what has been going on in your life over the past 50 years. Twenty-five of our classmates have filled out the survey, and the more that do so make the results that much more compelling. Take a moment, as we think you'll find it fun and reflective to answer the questions, and we know you'll find the overall results interesting. 

5. Music From 1967
And finally.........due to some rather vicious complaints, we have added one final music section for the website. There has long been rumor that there were secret country music fans in our class back in 1967, but they were overwhelmed by the rolling thunder of soul that washed over them, the English invasion that surrounded them, and the impending psychedelic takeover that would engulf them. Well, these 1967 country music selections honor you, the suffering and silent country fans:
   1. Gentle On My Mind; Not a true country song, this topped both pop and country charts in 1967. Its roots were undeniably country though, with a vocal by Glen Campbell that crossed over from country to pop. A little known fact about this song is it was written by John Hartford, not just a St. Louisian, but a graduate (1954) of John Burroughs School. 
    2. Ode to Billie Joe: A true crossover, this song also hit # 1 on both the pop and the country charts, put the singer/songwriter Bobbie Gentry and the Tallahatchie  Bridge on the cover of Time Magazine and won a number of Grammys. Around 1975, after contributing music to a movie based on “Ode,” she simply checked out. She has not been heard from in over 35 years. 
    3. Ruby, Don’t Take your Love to Town : This is the Johnny Darrell original, not the cover made famous two years later by Kenny Rogers. This was a unique offering in that it was the very first anti-war song to hit the country airwaves in a big way, which until 1967, were dominated by the ‘Okie from Muskogkee’ types. People say that when Johnson lost Walter Cronkite, he lost the war. Nope. Its when he lost the country fans, the backbone of the Armed Forces, that he lost the war.
