Thanks so much to all those involved in planning such a wonderful weekend, and especially to Jerry and Linda for everything they continue to do to keep the class connected.  I enjoyed every minute of the weekend, and was so happy to see so many long-ago friends.  Loved seeing the cars, too!

Thank you one and all who worked on the Reunion plans. It was a lot of fun and I was able to talk to so many friends from my years at RHS. I know I also missed a lot of classmates who were there. Maybe next year I'll get around to everyone. I am very tired and I imagine the "worker bees" ar exhausted. I realy appreciate all of you.

I thoroughly enjoyed the dinner cruise . . . I echo other posts that I missed catching up with many of the attendees, but those I was able to catch up with and have a conversation, made the cruise very worthwhile.  Saw many classmates that I have not seen at past events.  The one thing I really missed was Phil's tomato harvest, but unforturnately had previous plans for day of the picnic.  Kudos to the planning committee for your tireless commitment to ensure the 50th graduation celebration was to be the best AND your planning was SUCCESSFULL!!  Thanks to the committee and to the attendees for making MY experience a fun and delightful event!!

We just got back this AM from our 'tour' of the NW after the reunion. I echo all the comments about the great time had by all. It was great to see people again after so many years and see how well life has treated them. The organizers did a wonderful job of it all.

Where was the graduation party ... in Tacoma, but what was it called ... something by the sea?

Also, whose parents ... or better yet, how was that train trip arranged, and who got us that terrrible breakfast the morning after at the Boings cafeateria  ... I only faintly remember this stuff ... wonder why that may be!

I tink it was called "Top of the Ocean"? I just remember getting soot on my white dress during the train ride.

It was named "Top of the Ocean. I have a picture posted on my profile of what is there currently.

The parents who planned that party did an amazing job.  Just the logistics of herding hundreds of students around is mind-boggling. I'd forgotten the breakfast at Boeing, but realistically, what other place would have had the capacity to feed that many kids early in the morning? I'll always remember that night as an incredibly fun time.

What a great reunion you all put on. So much fun so nice to see everyone. Picnic was also great. Thanks for all your hard work.

Darlene, did you have an older brother who was owner of Berkeley Structures? I worked for him after I graduated from college. He played football for UW. And yes, the reunion was the best I have ever attended either for RHS, or from where I ended up graduating, K-M. Very uplifting and enjoyable. Thanks to all.

Darlene, ooops on my part..I see that Sabey is your married name...maybe you married someone I knew?

Hi friends, this was sent to me by my daughter, Mary Ellen. She is very committed to helping children. Thank you, Kathy O.
I'm writing to ask for your help to feed the most vulnerable in our communities: school-age kids.  Kids around us are going hungry on the weekends and Backpack Brigade is on a mission to end it.  Every week during the school year, volunteers pack 3,000 bags of food filled with 9 kid-friendly meals and 4 snacks to nourish a kid over the weekend.  These bags reach the backpacks of kids in 76 schools across Seattle, Renton, Highline, and Bellevue.  The need to fill these bags and provide more bags is urgent and greater than ever.
This year, Backpack Brigade is a Charity Partner with Seattle Marathon Association and part of the Summer 5K/10K/Kids Fun Run on Saturday, August 27th at Seward Park.  I am volunteering and helping to raise money toward Backpack Brigade's $10,000 goal.  
Will you help us reach our goal?  
Any amount helps and 100% of your donation goes directly to food; food that volunteers pack into bags and deliver to schools and students facing food insecurity.  
You can donate directly here
Want to help fundraise and join Team Backpack Brigade on race day? Would love to see you there!  Register here
Interested in volunteering on the frontlines packing food, joining our Board or connecting Backpack Brigade with potential corporate partners?  Let me know! 
I really appreciate your support and hope you're having a fun summer!
Mary Ellen

Ike Kielgas - 1958 Silver Arrow Restoration

As many of you are aware our classmate, Ike Kielgas, does classic boat restorations. His latest completed project is a 1958 Chris-Craft Silver Arrow which he started back in 2020. During the restoration process Ike would send me pictures of what step in the process he was on and the progress he made that day or week. I knew the process was involved and incredibly time consuming but seeing nearly every step along the way gave me a new and much deeper appreciation of Ike’s extraordinary skills and craftmanship. I thought it would be a great project to create a video that documented Ike’s restoration of the Silver Arrow. Below is a link to a video I put together to try and give his friends, and others, a deeper understanding of what is involved in one of Ike’s projects. Please feel free to share the video, leave a thumbs-up and a comment on YouTube. Enjoy!

Bravo, Ike! What an amazing project/hobby. I'm so glad you documented the whole process. I love seeing old things brought back to life. If only that would work for people...And thanks to Craig for the work that went into the video. My husband and I both found it spellbinding.
