Comments: The “extreme reunion”, WOW! What a spectacular event this was. After 37 years of being away from NPR and the classmates, this was like waking up after being in an extremely long time warp. The advertisment for this was right on target; “a truely a once in a lifetime event”.

Although unable to see and speak with everyone I was genuinely impressed with and pleased to meet with all of those that I did. My hat is off to the entire reunion committee and in particular, Ms Danielle Baillie Posnor. Job well done lady! For those doing the next GHS reunion; good luck, this will be one “tough act to follow”.

Thanks for the opportunity to relive old memories with old friends and the opportunity to make new ones.

Comments: Wanted to write and say what an awesome reunion we had! It seems like a dream now. It was like stepping back in time 37 years… but hey…we all grew up! Those who did not come to the reunion, (we) missed you. You are still “frozen in time” and are still 18 yrs old (in my mind). It was great to see people I hadn’t seen since graduation. I will always cherish seeing so many old (former) classmates.

Thanks to Danielle for the months and months of work she put into it so we could all enjoy not just one night, but an entire week-end together. The food was excellent, although I hardly ate, I was too busy “yaking.” I would love to walk into that room full of desserts again. Oh, what a night! Being from Pennsylvania, I appreciated the perfect weather. Danielle, you even pulled that off too. GREAT JOB !!

Also, thanks to Kathie (and Don) for making the “VIDEO” that could one day show up on the Lifetime TV Channel… and we will all be nominated for Best Real Life High School Achievers.. and then we will all have to go to Hollywood to accept our awards…OK.. well, I’m a big dreamer. But let’s face it, we had some awesome classmates, so this has to be an awesome video. Kidding aside, I appreciate Kathie taking her time and energy to do this!! When she’s done, she will know us intimately. Will she name her masterpiece “The Never Ending Story” or simply “The Graduates.”

Thanks to Coach Weightman and Miss Britton for coming. It was wonderful to talk and laugh with them. Confessing to Miss Britton that I can’t cook just lifted such a weight from my being and will save me many more years of therapy.

Again, it was such a special time, and I’m so glad I went. It was …..”PRICELESS.”

Wishing you all good health, peace in your heart, and many blessings.

Comments: Stumbled into the site. What happened to everyone else. GHS was small but not that small. Where are George Brady, Bruce Glaves, JIm Russ, Debbie Allgood, Sandy Windham, Buddy Korman, Phillip Neese, Doug Anderson (both of them) and everybody else. Remember when we got out of jr. high and went to high school in air conditioning? What a mile stone in history.

comments: After I finished school in 1969 my family moved from Hudson to Spring Hill where my Dad worked. I attended the University of Florida until 1973. Since 1973 I have been a real estate broker in Spring Hill. Still am. Seems like yesterday and I still feel like a young fellow, but I have discovered “the young folks” think I am a geezer. I have lived in Spring Hill for 30 years and have been pretty much detached from New Port Richey on a day to day basis even though it is only 35 minutes away. What is interesting to me though is my 2 daughters 11 & 9 are members of the New Port Richey Aquatics Swim Team the past year and it has allowed me to visit New Port Richey more regularly. Brings good memories.
