Even though I was not in your graduating class, (I graduated in January, 1960) I knew a great many of the members of the '59 class. I would like to congratulate and thank the people who built this website.....it is a website to be very proud of.

For attendees the 1959 50th Class Reunion is now added to our collection of positive TRHS memories. The Committee deserves the highest praise for planning an outstanding series of entertaining events and making the gathering unfold for a life affirming experience. For those who couldn't make this 'Trip to Bountiful' we missed you. It was obvious again that this class is indeed something special! In revisiting our roots we renewed our friendships and common foundation, regained awareness for what we will yet accomplish, and restored both strength and spirit to get on with it. Thanks to everyone for making it happen!

I just want the reunion committee to give themselves a pat on the back. You went above and beyond any of my expectations with our 50th class reunion, and my husband and I were very impressed with all the planned activities. You seemed to think of everything! Please accept our thanks for bringing us all together again. You have blessed us with a lifetime of memories in a four day span.

Glad so many are coming to the 50th. Susan and I will be on our way to Sibiu, Romania for a three month stay at the Lutheran Church there. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Lots of great memories! God Bless You All!

Looking forward to the '50th'. UGH! I still think I'm only 18! Well, my mind says so, but my body says different.
Can't wait to see everyone.

The time is getting near for us to head for Des Moines. It was such fun finding and talking to classmates and spouses of classmates during the two years we looked for those without current address information... we called them 'the missing'. We only had two 'missing' to find and I see one of them, Lelis Rymer, has entered her bio. on the website. I'm counting her as found! in my book. (even tho. I don't see an address.) I am so glad you chose to add your information, Lelis. I was hoping we could find you before the reunion and hope you will consider coming.

Can't be 50 years. That would mean that I'm .......... Damn, that's right! I feel like I'm 30, until that old guy in the mirror smiles back at me. Oh well, it's been a great ride so far.

Looking thru the pictures brought back such wonderful warm feelings. I can not wait to see everyone, God willing and the creek don't rise.

Super start on the class list. Let us hope more sign up. Ellen (Morris, St. Joseph 1959) and I will be there. Des Moines will surprise those that have not been back. Bring you bike (or just your helmet) and ride the trails.
Roosevelt Football is being played again at the renovated Drake Stadium.
