The First meeting of the joint "Class of 1966 - 45th Reunion" Committee met July 18.  Attending were:
      PHHS:  Ann Cleland-Murphy, Pam Schultz-Carlisle, and Dave Tacie
      PHN:  Patty Wakeham-Roberts, Tom Coleman, and Ginny Henry-Irland
Reunion Meeting Minutes for 7/18, 2010 were sent to all in the newsletter database.

The Reunion  Committe needs TONS of help updating files with current mailing addresses. See PHHS News and Northern News below. Please !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From Patty Wakeham-Roberts:
I forgot to add our next meeting will be Thursday, Aug 19, 2010 at 6:30 p.m. at Ann Cleland- Murphy's home, 2978 Sandy Oaks Ln,  Fort Gratiot off Lake Shore Rd, south of Metcalf Rd. 

From Ann Cleland-Murphy: Our first meeting went well - we are definitely off and running!!! I talked to Sharon Touma Adams and she does not think the PH Catholic class would be interested in joining our reunion as Port Huron Catholic has a multi- year reunion so it looks like we are looking at a Joint 1966 Class Reunion for PHN and PHH only. I will try to get a Facebook page up and running to spread the news that we are planning a 45th year reunion.  (Ed. Note: Also see Web Site below) When David (Caulkett) has the actual reunion web page set up we can put a link to it on the Facebook page. I have offered to have the next reunion meeting at my home on Thursday, Aug. 19 at 6:30 pm at 2978 Sandy Oaks Lane, Fort Gratiot - perhaps you could put that in the next newsletter in case anyone wishes to join us.  The more the merrier.  We had a small group at our first meeting but we all are excited to make this reunion a reality.

From Tom Coleman: George Murdick and myself will not be able to make the meeting @ Ann's home on August 19th.  We have our Golf night on Thursdays but let us know if we can help with anything.  I will check with Jammie Barrett as to the date of next years Dome Reuion but have someone check into the Cruise night date. I have no idea when that is scheduled.

From Pam Carlisle-Schultz:  Check out the Class of 1960 website for their 50th class reunion.  It's pretty neat!  Type in Port Huron High School Class of 1960, Port Huron, Mich.  Turn up your volume when you click on the site. 
(Ed. Note: )

The Reunion Committe requests that EVERYONE get involved in helping find alumni.  It's been so long.  Many people have moved far away, and some are no longer with us.  YOU may be the only person who knows where someone is!!!  Please send any e-mail addresses, mailing addresses you have in your address book.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Notes from Alumni:

From PHHS:
This is John Robinson.  I am married to Wendy Kendrick Robinson.  As of June 20th, We have been married for 40 years.  We have a 22 year old son who just graduated from college.  We live in the suburban Detroit area (Chesterfield Twp.) and are not far from Port Huron.  I am sending this e-mail to let you know that we are available and willing to help the committee in making the 45th class reunion of the "Class of 1966" the best it can be.  Both Wendy and I have retired as of this past June from wonderful teaching/administration careers in public education.  We will make whatever time is needed to be available support to the reunion.  God's blessings to all.

From Northern:
Roland Miller (Rolly) checking in here. Thank you for taking the time to put all this together. I received a up-date e-mail from Scott Carlisle and have passed it along to people I'm still in contact with. The info you have on me is very funny.. Geritol shot out of my nose, I was laughing so hard.... In deed I live in North Carolina, a town named Chapel Hill and retiried from Duke University a year ago (I'am not a art teacher) Ha. Married.. 2.5 children (all in the norm).  Still moving about with the help of my friends and my new hobby is home maintenance.  Looking forward to receiving the newsletter and peace to all .

An old note (I misplaced) from Cathy Hess Brace: After many years and teaching learning Handicapped children I've retired and now am continuing to run my holiday lighting business of 16 years.
