55th reunion

LHS Class of '58

(Click on above photo to view an enlargement of the photo.)


The party began on a warm Friday night, September 13, at The Wheel in Lawrence. Pizza and beer were served all evening long and the event was well attended also by members of the Classes of 1956, 1957 and 1959.

Saturday morning a group visited Allen Fieldhouse to see the “Walk of Fame” and then came out to Eudora to get ready for a lunch catered by Biggs Barbecue (owned by Linda Large’s son, Doug Holladay.)

cake

Cake was presented to us by the band

The north yard was filled with white linen covered tables and white chairs and looked quite festive. Add to that the 92 participants who enjoyed the beautiful day of good food and good conversation. Those who wanted to were able to tour the home of Monte and Sue Pearson and were appreciative of all the improvements made since the last reunion. Monte has been busy! The entire south and west and east sides of the home have been transformed into gardens and provided a nice oasis surrounding the historic Queen Anne home.

elvis

Elvis (Bob Lockwood) singing to Dwight Perry

Saturday evening found most classmates in the lounge of the Lawrence Country Club, visiting with each other while the dining room was being prepared for dinner. A delicious buffet was provided, including beef, chicken and salmon, vegetables and dessert. Bob Lockwood was the emcee for the evening, keeping the program moving and when the band started, he was transformed into ELVIS! He did a wonderful job of entertaining throughout the evening. The band, “The Secrets” included Bob and Sharon Lockwood Newell's three sons. A lot of dancing and a few games preceded the presentation by the band of a beautiful sheet cake which said “LHS Class of 1958 Reunion, Lost in the 50’s tonight!!!”

Sunday morning was a brunch attended by about 20 die-hards at the Eldridge House in the Big Six room (remember the Big 6?). Lots more good conversation and good food topped off the weekend. Attendees were from KS, MN, MD, MO, CA, NY, ID, WI, WA, TN, NV and IL.

Sue Pearson “gave notice” that this was her last reunion to be in charge of and needed some volunteers to take over the job. (no one volunteered) What she would like, before “retiring” is to hear from you as to what you want for the future. Do we want to do this again in 2‐3 years instead of waiting for 5 years? What do you want to have included? Keep it the same? Make it less busy? Suggestions for changes? Join with another class to be a combined class reunion? In this day and age of down‐sizing, moving to other facilities, you need to LET SUE KNOW of address changes. Post Offices don’t forward mail for more than one year and you could be “lost in the 50’s” as far as our mailing list is concerned.

If you would like to have a complete list of our classmates addresses and emails, please let me know and I can send via

email. It’s many pages long (and WIDE) so am only planning on sending via email and let you print it out for yourself.
