Reunion News:

Bob Brewer has agreed to put together a "Reunion Yearbook" to be made available to all.  He will take a photographs of everyone (with their permission) as they arrive Sat. evening.  He will also take photos during the events both Fri. and Saturday night.  After the reunion, he will set up a way for other class members to upload/send their photos to him.  Then he will combine all photos, together with our photos from the 66 yearbook!  What a guy, that Bob!!!  Watch for details in the August newsletter.

Dave Eppley and Ellen Albers-Rogers are planning a great Open House for Northern Huskies.  There have been lots of changes in store for those who haven't seen the "Hallowed Halls" of our alma mater.  A tour, brief program and time to chat with friends is planned.

If you plan to golf on Saturday (rather than cruise) please contact George Murdick: or 810-967-6535 (h) or 810-334-4400 (c), for tee times, cost, etc.

Updated info on ordering class memorabilia (t-shirts, mugs, etc) can be seen on our class website:
Check it out!!! 

STILL LOST!!!!!  We're still trying to find "LOST" classmates.  Please check out the "Lost' lists on the web site: and send any info you may have...please!!!  Speaking of lost. I'd really like to find JoAnn Willis and Merry Matthews, but have not received any clues. 

FYI.....These people wanted you to know they really wanted to attend the reunion, but: Dennis Willing is currently on the Board of Directors of the NRA (National Rifle Association) and has duties of that office requiring him to be elsewhere.

Kay Hamilton-Schnurr will be attending the wedding of her son on reunion day.

Featured BIO - Chick Dobson:

After Northern, University of Michigan for 2 years (did play frosh basketball as a walk on) then 3 years and graduation from University of Illinois Business School. Married Susan Hess, moved to Denver and worked for 7-11 for awhile, then opened Munchies Food Store (a convenience food store) and Mad Dog Trading Company, (a second hand shop) as well as Chubby's Hot Dogs (a hot dog cart). Got a residential real estate licence in 1977. The stores and cart are long gone, the real estate licence still active. Daughters Julie and Mel joined Susan and myself and we became a family of four." In January 1986 while skiing at Steam Boat Springs in the woods. I hit a tree and subsequently (apparently) made a couple of offers on the Ranch while in Intensive Care. It is possible that this incident eventually led to "deceased" reports, cause it was touch and go for awhile and plenty of pain for 2 more years. In 1991, joined the Gambling Industry as a card dealer (black jack, roulette, pai-gow and various carnival poker games.) Still dealing ( 4 days a week) at the Riviera Casino in Black Hawk Colorado...Still playing bad golf 1 day a week with the boys, and currently putting together a little stock trading LLC. Remarried 20 years ago to a fantastic red headed fire breathing sword wielding Welch woman-Gainor. I am her 5th husband. The other four couldn't keep up. Life is just fine, health is (knock on wood) excellent, spirits sky high.
