Comments: After graduation I went to SPJC and then on to USF and graduated with a degree in Special Education. I've lived in Michigan and Illinois prior to moving to Colorado in 2007. My husband passed away after 23 years of marriage. I have 2 great kids and 3 fantastic grand kids. I retired this past spring from teaching, but couldn't quite settle into retirement so I work part time as a tour guide at Anheuser-Busch here in Fort Collins. I'm having a fun time learning all about beer and get to meet some very interesting people.

Gosh, I believe the last time I drove through NPR was about 10 years ago when my mom died; how things have changed.

When's the next reunion?

Comments: I retired from working for the federal government on May 31, 2014. The best part of this is that I didn't have to go to work when the temperatures hit single digits and below zero this month! I didn't think I'd ever get tired of snow, but I am. Still, it's better than heat, alligators, mosquitos and giant snakes! At times, I miss NPR a lot, however. I used to dream about living in one of those pink or white mansions along the river. I have fond recollections about free fish frys at the park on the fourth of July, float decorations down the Boulevard and the river, and the older Chasco Fiesta events. I used to think I did well in school because I had come to NPR from the north, where schools supposedly were harder and better. NOT SO. There are constant reminders in the local papers about how bad the Buffalo public schools are; they make me realize just how good we had it at Richey Elementary and Gulf Jr.-Sr. High.

Comments: Well it has been almost 40! years! I went to Eckerd College (Florida Presbyterian) along with Nancy Gregg (she left, not sure where ended up) and Steve Wyatt (my freshman roommate, not sure where he ended up either). I got a BA from USF in 1973 and an MA in 1979. I have done some teaching (community college and adult education), worked as a licensed massage therapist, and then ended up in the computer field. I have been marrried twice, no children. I spent my time in Saint Petersburg, Denver and the Washinton DC area. I am now MOL retired and living in Roanoke, Virginia in the Blue Ridge mountains.

I would love to hear from y’all.

Comments: I have recently heard from a few folks because of this site. It has been tentatively suggested that we should think about a reunion in ’08 as that would be 40 years. I personally like the idea. Anyone still in the NPR area want to volunteer to be the collector of email addresses, to start making contact with every one we can locate? Think that would be the first step, anyway. Sure seems like our group has really drifted apart. Good luck to all. IN GOD WE TRUST

Comments: Hi! I was supposed to graduate in 1968, but I married in 1967 instead. I played the cymballs/drums from 1965 to 1967 when Mr. Tatum was the band teacher. I moved to Hudson in 1998 to take care of my mother. Has anyone heard from Darlene Dobagones, Darlene Barrow, Janet Brown or Beth Zillinger? I met Tom DeCorte at a sheriffs information session a couple of years ago. We were able to joke about our days in the band. I was sorry when I read of his passing. We had a lot of fun in the band. This web site is very nice.

It has been a long time since I have been back to New Port Richey but looks like it has changed quite a bit. Hope to see more of our class of 68.

Comments: Just found this web page…I thought Gulf High went the way of the Dodo bird. Haven’t heard a thing about it since I moved to New York in ’73. I guess the class of ’68 just never got into computer communications very much. If any one from that era wants, contact me. Is there any reunions planned for the future. By the way, I am married with two daughter, 17 and 18. The oldest is getting married this week. Well gotta go, see ya later.
