Comments: I have not been to this site for so long. Jon Sherwin emailed me a few days ago and it reminded me of this site. I had to come back and give an update. LIFE IS SO GOOD. Amazing how changing your scenery completly changes your perspective. I am in property management and wow, is it ever a challenge. Sometimes I feel like a mom, warden, judge, police officer and babysitter all wrapped up in one. But, God knows I love people and I believe it is getting me prepared for what He wants next……….pastor’s wife.

Typing that makes me laugh out loud. I believe I just heard someone GASP! My soon to be husband is a pastor in Tenn. My boys adore him and for the first time in my adult life, I have met someone who doesn’t mind me being who I am………energetic, stubborn, kind hearted, funny, lover of life, intelligent and a go getter. I love being Mindy Campbell. It truly rocks.

Chin up and move forward…In His Grip..Mindy

Comments: Hello to all that I was a friend to during our time at Gulf and those that I have met since those eventful days. An update on “me.” I only have one year (two semesters) remaining until I graduate from Stetson University College of Law, then it’s on to face the Florida Bar.

As yet, I am still both single and have yet to even remotely consider marriage again. Kris I envy you and I wish you and your “new” family nothing but the best for a prosperous and positive life.

If you guys met me now, you’d never recognize me. I’ve been letting my hair “down” (literally) since my 40th birthday and it’s now near the middle of my back. What has started out as a “turning point” in life has (and will be) used to benefit “Locks for Love” … I’m still basically the “same person” you all knew in school but my eyes and views have most definitely changed over the past 10 years (and I feel so much the better for it),

Always feel free to write me. I enjoy hearing from former clasmates … even if I did not regularly socialize with you.

Comments: I haven’t been to this site in a long time. In the last 2 years I have changed jobs and moved. I am now in NPR and working at a fish house in Tarpon (Been there over a year and a half.) Works out well considering my husband is a commercial fisherman and the Mate on two local Charter Boats.

If anyone is in contact with Denise Eichberger, let her now that I got the post on the gulfalumni site but I am unable to reply to it.

Still no Total Sound people on the site (MINUS Laura-who I still talk to). Oh well…. (My nephew was in Total Sound class of 2002)

Hey Liz, it has been a long time since we last alked, hope all is well. I don’t have your email addy anymore, but mine is the same.

Friends don’t let friends buy imported seafood, Support your local fisherman!

Comments: A quick update for everyone…

Believe it or not, I got married for the first time, on August 3rd, 2007. I may be robbing the cradle, since Charles is 7 years younger than I am, but at 40, I know what I want. It took a long time, but God’s plans may be different than our own.

Charles is 33, works for Pepsi, and is a native Floridian. He has no children, and I’m honored that he accepts Grace (my 7 year old) as his own. We also just added an Old English Sheepdog to the family (I need to have my head examined). And who knows what might happen in the future…

As for the ceremony, I was thrilled to have Kim (McMullen) Rossman as my matron of honor. Some friendships were made to last, even when (some) men try to mess them up! And Grace was the flower girl, of course!

Please keep in touch!

I have not been here since the start of the year..it was nice to see all the updates and some familiar names…All is well here in the mountains. Florida was way to pricey for us…the insurance alone was killer!!

Mike, as for the “American Dream”, we have purchased a home up here..and are loving it. It is not without it’s struggles, but it is good to be back here!!

Mindy..one word for you…AMEN!!!! Will continue to lift you up. Know that you have done the right thing. You are a strong woman….I know we have talked on e-mail, but I just wanted to say it again…I am so proud of you!!!

Comments: Hello class of 1985. Just wanted to check and see how everyone is doing. This past year has brought alot of change and hard decisions. But all for the better. I am so close to being single again after leaving an abusive relationship of way, way, way, too long. All I can say is I feel so good about my decision for me and my two incredible boys. There is something about turning 40 and knowing life can be so much better. I have a strong faith in God and know He restores all that has been stolen. I look forward to each day with anticipation to see where life leads me. It is so cool to taste what freedom is like when you have been held captive for so long. I haven’t been back to this site in so long and it’s great to see how everyone is doing. Chin up and move forward. In His Grip….Mindy

Comments: Hello all, I recently saw Steve Rodopoulos which brought me back to this site and after reviewing some of the later posts, I realized I never gave a final update regarding the scholarship. The Gulf High Class of 1985 Reunion Scholarship amounted to $1000 which was awarded to Terry Horan, a 2006 graduate. I would like to thank everyone who contributed and helped in the awarding of the scholarship and our best wishes go out to Terry Horan. You have already made us proud.

That said, a quick recap since the reunion. For those who were not there, Kim and I had a baby girl on Christmas eve of 2004, her name is Lauren. She is now 26 months old and is as stubborn as her Mom. Joseph is 5, in pre school and never stops talking, again, just like his Mom. I took a new job in July of 2006 which moved us from our home in Cincinnati to the beautiful suburbs of Northern Atlanta. We still have a home for sale in Cincinnati… anyone relocating? We are all happy and healthy, with the exception of my allergies, just a whole new set of allergens to get accustom to. New e-mail addresses:

Kim McMullen Rossman – k_rossman@windstream.net
Jerry Rossman – j_rossman@windstream.net (not checked as diligently)

Please feel free to drop us a line and say hello.

Looking forward to 25? 30?

Comments: Hello everyone. I smiled through reading all of your updates. Seems like a pretty happy group.

I am married 12 years to a teacher who loves me for reasons I’m not clear on. If she ever wakes up, I’ll update this site with revised marriage status.

We have sons Tag (10) and Clennan (6) whom we love dearly, but are the curse my mother put on me for misbehaving in my high school years (I blame most of you).

I have a job I enjoy in Portland, OR – a city and state that has become our home over the past 8 years. We ski, do Cub Scouts and Tae Kwon Do. I work, coach youth football and make furniture my wife lovingly agrees is “as good as anything we can buy in the store.” Again, if she ever wakes up…

I remain in close contact with Jim Becker (work with him) and Bob Karnick. They are both doing well, with 4 boys, one wife and only one divorce between them. No, they did not divorce one another.

I wish you all continued happiness. Some stuff/names I didn’t see, but would like an update on if anyone has the info are as follows. Please pardon spelling errors and maiden names:

Bill Dombrowski
Melinda Baldry
Susan Evereth
More on Jamie and Howie (Hey guys)
Kris (my first make-out) Hrenko
Andi (my first strike-out) Kaiser
Julie Wioland

I’m sure there are more, and I’ll visit regularly to eavesdrop.

Rgs,

Comments: Hey all………. sorry Liz but I did not take any pictures while I was at the Reunion last Summer. I’m not sure who has any either. Sorry you weren’t able to get a home here in FL. but the dynamics of home owning have changed so drastically over the past 10 years that many are not able to afford the “American Dream” (as some put it). It all works out in the end though. No other news to report………..

Comments: What a year!!! I still have regrets about missing the 20 year reunion, but there were circumstances that could not be helped. Mike, do you have pix that you could maybe post somewhere for those that could not attend to see?? So glad to hear that school and life are both treating you well. It looks like I will be heading back to TN if all goes well. We had tried to purchjase a home here in Pasco, but the insurance and taxes kept us out of it. I believe that there is a reason for everything though….. Who else do you hear from?? Maybe we can get this ball rolling again. Best of luck and love to all!!!

Comments: Hello to everyone out there! It seems like it was 10 years ago but right about this time there were some of us who were fortunate to attend the 20th reunion. It was great to see everyone and for those whom I call friend………… you are certainly missed! I have just completed my first year of Law School at Stetson University College of Law and although it was definitely trying for me……… it has so been worth it (Thanks to Janet Jesse for support). I will be heading out to San Francisco at the end of next week (7/28) for a few days and I know I’m going to have a blast out there. I had looked into transferring to UC Berkeley Boalt Hall Law School but they do not offer a part time program………. too bad so sad! Well I hope to hear from everyone and hopefully this will get the chat page started once again……….. All the best to everyone!

Comments: Hello class. I wanted to say thank you for the support I received during my request for donations at the reunion in June (by the way, Kim and I had a great time!). As a result of our generosity, we were able to establish a scholarship in the amount of $1000 that will be awarded to a graduating Gulf High student. For those of you interested, the criteria for awarding the scholarship are as follows:

Gulf High School graduating senior.
Minimum 2.50 GPA (unweighted).
Maximum 3.50 GPA (unweighted).
Show evidence of financial need.
Must plan to attend an accredited post-secondary institution.
Demonstrated school and community service through volunteerism, committee or club involvement.
Separate essay with the topic: Describe a challenging situation you experienced during your time at Gulf High and how you overcame it.

The recipient will be selected in February and announced in March of 2006. I will keep everyone apprised of the results.

Additionally, there were some people who expressed a desire to donate but did not have their checkbooks at hand… well good news! We can continue to receive donations for the scholarship. Depending on the additional amounts received we can either increase the value of our single scholarship, or offer a second scholarship. Either way it will unexpectedly bless the recipient.

Your donations can be sent to:

The Gulf High Alumni – Class of 1985 Scholarship Fund
c/o Pasco Education Foundation
P.O. Box 1248
Land Oโ€™ Lakes, FL 34639

Checks may be made out to GHA – Class of 1985 Scholarship Fund or the Pasco Education Foundation with a note in the memo section on the check.

I want to again thank everyone who has already donated, your support and generosity has been overwhelming, and thank you to those who will be donating. You will be helping a student achieve a dream that might not otherwise be possible.

Sincerely,

Jerry Rossman

We all know how these things pop up with kids. We all showed up after 11:30…church and all. Maybe we need to try it again sometime.

Comments: To All:

It was a wonderful time at our 20th reunion. I was delighted to see so many of you whom I might never have actually called a friend in high school and to learn about what you’ve been doing with your lives since then. It is true to a certain extent that you never outgrow your roots. Thanks to Inga and Hilda and anyone else who got the ball rolling and put it all together. I will try my best to be at the picnic in Sept. and to see those I missed the first time around. My Summer is offically over and I have just begun my first year at Stetson University College of Law. I can not believe I was able to get in and now I have the chance to take one more step forward in life and open a completely new chapter. Hopefully I can visit with you and if not then may I be able to shake your hand and speak with you at the 30th as a full fledged practicing attorney.

All My Best,

Comments: Sounds like the reunion was fun! I’m sorry I had to miss it. For those of you who still live in town, or will be in town Labor Day weekend, a group of us have reserved Shelter 1 at Howard Park on Saturday, September 3rd from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. This will be an informal get together. Just bring your families favorite picnic lunch and a dessert to share. The ball fields are right next to this shelter so bring along bats, balls, gloves, etc. There is also a jungle gym and swings for the kids. There are no fees involved – just an “unofficial get-together!” For those of you who were able to attend the reunion, bring along your photos – we’d love to see them!

Comments: To everyone who chose not to come to our 20th reunion either from not being able to or just bent out of shape because we found out about it a little later than we all expected. YOU MISSED A GREAT TIME!!! Everyone who attended would say it was a great success. It was so fun to see everyone again and hear what everyone was up to. A lot of people looked the exact same and some you would not believe how much they changed. Thank you Hilda Font Martin and Inga Stanelun for working so hard to make it a success. I know how busy life can get especially Hilda with three boys to take care of and being a Asst. Princ. at an elementary school. I hope everyone who chose not to come because of hard feelings will regret not coming because We Missed You All, but had a great time anyway!

EVERYONE LOOKED AWESOME!!!

I have seen a few pix from the reunion and was wondering if anyone would be posting a photo link on this site for those that were unable to attend this time around. I saw one group pic but was unable to make out some of the faces.

Also, is there a final word on the day and cost of the get together over Labor Day weekend?? What site is that info posted on??

We are living back in NPR and hope to be here for awhile. I have been blessed to reconnect with some high school friends recently. I guess, no matter how antiquated this place felt “back then”, it will always be home to me.

Comments: First off – WOW! What a good time that was. I am only sorry that more of our class was not there. Many of you were definitely missed.

Second, I want to say a great big THANK YOU to all of those who have donated to the scholarship fund and those who have given verbal committments. To those who had checks to give me, I am sorry I didn’t get to you to get them, but please send them to the address below. With what we have collected so far and the verbal committments, we will be well over $1000 (hopefully double that if not more). I will be using the info provided by Reunion Celebrations to mail out letters to those classmates not in attendance, but if you happen to get a letter and you were there, feel free to donate again ๐Ÿ™‚

But thank you all again for the great time and the donations and not laughing at me during my announcement.

Regards,

Comments: Hello everyone – the reunion is just a short month away and the Gulf High Class of 1985 Scholarship fund has been set up and is ready to receive donations. Since this board doesn’t reach everyone who will be attending the reunion, I will be making an announcement at the Friday and Saturday night events. I would like it if we had a substantial amount to report as inspiration for those who are thinking about contributing. As of 6/14/2005, we have $100 to offer to a deserving student who will be graduating next year. I hope through everyone’s generosity and spirit of giving we can offer much more by the time the reunion is here.

Donations can be made by sending a check to:

Also, who’s bringing kids? We have a 9 1/2 hour drive so we might bring our two oldest 13 & 11 1/2. I thought it would be fun for them to hang out with some of my friends’ kids. If no one else is bringing kids they might me left at home. I just to do that since were not taking them on Kurt’s Class Reunion CRUISE.

Have a GREAT day! Isn’t great that it’s finally warm!!!

Comments: Hello everyone.

As you are aware there has been a lot of discussion on giving back to Gulf High and the community. One of many good ideas was the establishment of a scholarship in the name of our class for a graduating Gulf High senior (or seniors depending upon the level of participation). I have talked with the guidance counselor at Gulf High and she expressed a high need for scholarship money, even with the state sponsored Bright Futures program. She directed me to the Pasco Education Foundation and after discussions with their executive director, I am happy to announce we have set up the Gulf High Alumni โ€“ Class of 1985 Scholarship. I have included the press release from the Pasco Education Foundation below:

****

PRESS RELEASE

The Pasco Education Foundation, Inc. proudly announces that the Gulf High School Alumni Class of 1985, in partnership with the Foundation, has established a scholarship fund entitled The Gulf High Alumni – Class of 1985 Scholarship.

The Class of โ€˜85 is seeking donations to establish a scholarship for students graduating from Gulf High School who wish to continue their education.

The Pasco Education Foundation, Inc. is the non-profit 501 (c) 3 direct support organization for the District School Board of Pasco County, dedicated to providing support for programs where tax dollars cannot be used and where budgets fall short.

Individuals or organizations interested in supporting the Gulf High Alumni โ€“ Class of 1985 Scholarship Fund should send their tax- deductible donation to:

The Gulf High Alumni โ€“ Class of 1985 Scholarship Fund
c/o Pasco Education Foundation
P.O. Box 1248
Land Oโ€™ Lakes, FL 34639

Checks may be made out to GHA โ€“ Class of 1985 Scholarship Fund or the Pasco Education Foundation with a note in the memo section on the check.

100% of all donations will be used to establish the fund.

For more information about the scholarship, please contact Chip Wichmanowski, Executive Director of the Pasco Education Foundation at:

(727) 774-2705, (813) 794-2705, or (352) 524-2705.

****

I requested that all donors and donation amounts remain confidential as this effort is not about the individual but about giving back as a class. The Pasco Education Foundation will send you a thank you letter as acknowledgement of your donation. I will receive a running tally of donations and will be periodically updating everyone via the Gulf High Alumni Class of โ€™85 message board (www.gulfhigh.org/1985.html) and we will make a “final total” announcement at the reunion.

If you know of people who are not active on this board, please forward this message to them so they may participate if they wish.

I will wrap this up as it is getting long, however I want everyone to know I have already received a request from the Class of โ€™87 to use this idea for their reunion. So letโ€™s set the bar high and show them which class is best (and not just at powder-puff football).

Looking forward to the reunion,

Comments: Great seeing all of the posts, but….. what about cost for the reunion. Still haven’t heard anything on that and I know that that is an important factor. Randy and I are in the process of seeling our house here and getting out of dodge soon. WEant to come back. In fact I know we’ll be in town that week. Our 14 yr old is going on a Mision Trip. But, with moving and all… You get the picture. I can’t wait to see everyone and the idea of giving back is awesome. We are for it, we know how God has blessed us. Just ask Randy, he;ll ive it to you. It is only right to pass those blessings on.

I’m trying to get Karen Suizdak Poynter up and into this century computer wise. I’ll try logging on with here when she comes over for dinner tomorrow night. Show her agin how it’s done. LOL If anyone is interested in a house zoned AG just over and acre MOL Get in touch with me.

Comments: Official Reunion Info from Inga… please help pass the word!

*************************

Hi Class of 85!

Various websites seem to have info in bits and pieces about the reunion. It seems I find there is a new website cropping up all the time, so please understand we aren’t aware of every website discussing the reunion. We have been planning the reunion for months now. Feel free to pass this info on to your personal discussion groups! I placed a post on the official Gulf High Alumni site last month and hope that reached many of you.

Everything for the reunion is underway and you will all be receiving information in the mail in the next week. I’ve hired a company to locate and organize reunion signups, and they tell me 91% of the class has been located. But, if you are concerned or would like to be sure your information is correct with them, please go to reunioncelebrations.com and fill in their student forms. Also, please pass this info on to any classmates you think might be hard to locate.

The reunion will be July 15 – 17 at the lovely Innisbrook resort in Tarpon Springs. There will be a Friday night event, Saturday night cocktail dress-up with dinner and dancing, and afternoon events Saturday and Sunday for the kids.

Accomodations for travelers can be had at the Best Western Palm Harbor, which is waterfront, reasonable and quite nice. Rooms at Innisbrook might not be as easy to come by that weekend. Hotel information will be included in your mailer.

http://book.bestwestern.com/bestwestern/productInfo.do?propertyCode=10343

Hilda Font-Martin and I have been handling the plans. We can’t possibly keep up with all the various web dicussion groups or answer emails personally at this time, as we are busy organizing the event itself. Again, many of you have already received date cards in the mail and your full registration packets will arrive shortly. Please contact Reunion Celebrations directly if you do not receive your reunion info in the next two weeks.

Thanks and see you there!

Comments: As the Career Specialist at Mitchell High, I see a great need at the local school level for students who want to further their education and don’t have the funds. We would have the ability to impact many students for years to come with a scholarship fund. I hope someday a graduating class from Mitchell feels the same desire to give back to their school as our group feels. We really are doing a great thing! I am looking forward to our reunion and working on this project.

Comments: I have been in touch with Mr. Imerson, the current Principal at GHS. He provided a few suggestions, listed below:

The Des Little Stadium sign was taken down in the Hurricanes last year and needs to be replaced. If this is something that is chosen, the class of 1985 would be listed on the sign as a contributor.

The school has been wanting to put up flags from around the world in the commons area. They have requested funding from elsewhere, but it was denied. The flag kits cost about $25.00 each.

They are also adding a Career Resource center to the front of the building, funded by the Penny for Pasco. They will need help with Resource items (book series, etc) once it is completed.

Mr. Imerson said he will contact me with more ideas as they come in, and I will keep everyone else posted.

Comments: I love Cheryl’s idea to help kids pay fees for activities, sports teams, &/or trips they otherwise would have to pass or miss out on.

When my brother and I were seniors at GHS, we wanted to go on one of the senior trips (Project Graduation at Busch Gardens), and, because there were two of us, and times were tight in our home due to our dad being terminally ill, we chose not to even ask our parents about going. Thankfully, some of our closest friends were aware of the situation, and their parents got together and helped out. It was an amazing time, and my parents were never made to feel bad about it all….infact, they felt quite blessed.

What are everyone elses thoughts on this??

Comments: My son currently attends Gulf High School, 10th grade. My roommate is President of the GHS Booster Club. They are very much involved in the community. I can check to see if there are some specific areas that would benefit from a monetary contrubution. I know that one problem has been that the fees for playing school sports has increased tremendously over the years. The booster club receives many requests from parents for help in paying fees due to limited incomes. It has been a major concern that some students are left out because the families cannot afford to pay the fees, especially if there is more than one child who wants to play sports. I will ask around and pass on whatever information I find out. It may help to determine what would benefit the most students.

Comments: Hello all, to reply to Angie’s post regarding an effort to “give back to the community,” for those who do not know, Rusty Asble made a suggestion that the reunion may also be an opportunity to give back to the community and Gulf High. Rusty stated: “One thought that came to me last night. We all have been blessed in one way or another by God in how He has led each of our lives. Everyone has a different take on this and that is ok, but how about a “Go Give” Day where we can give back to Gulf HS or community a little something (volunteer time, financial gift, teacher/administration appreciation, etc) to say thank you for what was given and done for us?”

That simple thought generated quite a few suggestions on how we can “give back.” One idea was to set up a fund in which reunion and non-reunion participants can contribute and the proceeds would be used to aid some of the worlds neediest people in our classes name. Another idea was to contact Gulf High to see if there were any needs the school has that we could provide through a collection of funds. A third idea was to again collect funds to offer a scholarship or multiple scholarships to financially deserving Gulf High graduating seniors. This scholarship would also be in the name of the Gulf High Class of 1985.

If anyone has other ideas they feel strongly about, please bring them into the light. If interest is great enough, we could surely accomodate multiple projects.

I will accept charge of organizing the scholarship. I have already been in contact with a foundation affiliated with the Pasco county education district that currently administers scholarships. I will post more information as I get things set up.

And as a reminder, reunion is July 15-16 at Innisbrook. Maybe a round of 18 on the Copperhead course Saturday morning/afternoon followed by emergency room visits for heat stroke. I’m bringing my high handicap, 3 extra sleeves of balls and Solarcaine. Anyone else?

Comments: Hi guys… Well, here’s the Howard Park Update!

up to 300 ppl $300

500-1000 ppl $500

We would have to reserve several shelters for either amount.

you can only use their approved list of caterers (they had to show proof of insurance & lic.)

you have to apply for a special permit by calling Mondy Alfonso @ 464- 3689.

As of this morning, all shelters are available for July 17th.

*********************
I have emailed this info to Inga…. and since funds are involved I’m assuming Reunions Celebrations will coordinate from here.

I also had a suggestion and that is to sort of “nominate” Jerry Rossman, Melanie Procter, and perhaps Rusty Asble to head up and coordinate the “give back to the community” effort – IF they are willing!!!! Rusty’s idea is awesome and personally I think we need to have some folks taking charge of it so it doesn’t fall by the wayside.

Interestingly I just got an email copy from Inga’s contact at Reunions Celebrations, concerning my request for contact information/database for future gatherings and of course, the fundraising effort, as follows:

**********
Hi Inga,
I am sorry but we cannot release your data base until after the reunion in the roll up package Sunny will be sending you. Itโ€™s company policy. The addresses that we have at the time of the reunion will be in the Memory CD that will be distributed to each attending alumni at the reunion if that helps but we only release that info to you with all the information regarding the reunion โ€ฆ about 30 days after the reunion.

Sorry that I couldnโ€™t be of help at this point.

Dorothy
*************************

Additionally, I wanted to reiterate to everyone that we are planning a Labor Day weekend event for any one who wants to attend, for Sunday September 4th – with a rain date of the following Sunday, September 11th. Shelter 1. More information will be forthcoming and I have been working with Analisa Warder on this side event – anyone who wants to lend a hand, drop us an email – we’ll be glad for the help!

Hope all is well with everyone and your Easter holidays were delightful.

Will keep you guys posted and of course, to echo Inga, “Lots of you have offered to help, so please anyone local with a moment, let me know.”

We would love it if anyone can tell us which shelter at Howard Park is a good one for a large groups. If anyone can possibly call to reserve it if you’re familiar with how it works that would be a huge help. I’m in California, so I can’t go to the park to check it out! Lots of you have offered to help, so please anyone local with a moment, let me know. Thanks! Our announcements are being mailed this week, so the sooner we have a shelter reserved, the better, so we can include that info in the mailer. Thanks again! Inga

As Inga has posted, we finally scheduled the reunion for the weekend of July 15- 17. As of now we have a mingle planned for Friday night and will have dinner and dancing on Saturday. Both those events will be held at Innisbrook. Prices for the event and room rates have not been finalized. I am attempting to work out some kind of family skating activity at the the old Congress skating rink. I don’t know if it will be on Sat. or Sun.

Comments: FYI . . . After speaking with Angie. We decided that there are enough people who still live in the area and no matter what, let’s have a get-together picnic on Saturday, September 4th. We’ve reserved Shelter 1 at Howard Park. It has the grills, shelter, playground, ballfield and bathrooms. Go ahead and mark your calendars! More details to come. If you are interested, please contact myself or Angie.

Comments: Hi again everyone… Keep checking this website as I am getting bombarded with emails that I can’t keep up with and this way everyone will know what is being said, planned, thought, etc….

Evidently the big formal shin dig is being planned but we are being given scant information…. though I posted the Reunions Celebration website (company that coordinates class reunions) address below. SO we can all register with them so they know WHERE WE ARE! (Some of us have our personal information hidden from public records….)

Otherwise, about the Labor Day idea….I just talked to Analisa and she booked a shelter (#1 at Howard Park… near playground for all our little ones…) for Sunday AND Monday of Labor day weekend. We can firm the day as it gets closer. SO, we are having a labor day weekend picnic anyway! It isn’t taking the place of anything… just it’s OWN get together for those who can and want to join in the fun. There seems to be a lot of interest in an informal picnic from the emails I got, so let’s go for it!

I’m thinking as the weeks pass, we’ll need to start a sign up list of sorts for covered dishes, chips, napkins, sodas, cups, hot dogs, hamburgers, etc. or perhaps we want to make it a like, $5. per person and go from there?

I personally think it’s a little more fun for those to bring their favorite picnic recipes to share…. rather than the normal Publix Deli items! But…. put your two cents in and we can collectively decide.

Does someone want to volunteer for TRACKING those who say they can attend the picnic….? That way we’ll have a running list of who is expected and how our numbers are going for both food/drink purposes among other things!

Again, I’d encourage you all to write to those you think might not be involved in this forum and let them know the BALLS ARE ROLLING (and they might squish one of us!)

Take care all…. and keep writing and calling. I’m LOVING hearing from you all!

Comments: Hi everyone,

I suspect perhaps some ppl took offense ( or felt I had stepped on their feet) – I didn’t mean to. I was trying to get everyone coordinated and get answers. (I’m good at that!) when they claim to be working on it, but I can’t help but want to scream …. COMMUNICATION! A little goes a long way. Lots of I think and I heard online and no I’m DOING! 3rd party is hard to rely on and has inga written the site even once? I mean, where are we to turn? The less mysterious “they” which I’m told includes Inga,

So far a lot of folks like the labor day idea is popular and I luv it…. gather your clan…Let’s gather everyone we know, let’s schedule a picnic. How ’bout we SHOOT for Labor Day weekend (unless the reunion is that week…How does Saturday 9/6 sound with a rain date of 9/11? I don’t care if we do it at my house (I can manage about 70ppl fairly comfortably if we also use the yard. OR of course, park option is good too. little clean up…but what ever. I heard a lot of interest in a picnic at that time and for those who responded….what do you think? Hell I’m blocks from Madeira Beach, we could REALLY make an outing out of it. Fireworks too are phenomenal on the beach as you can see many other cities…. Possibility? CHEAP possibilities.

I’m getting tired. Was up at 5 am. I’ll forward the idea to the rest of the ‘responders”and the others can get in touch as they like. I posted more info to the site as far as how to register. . Please vote yes/no for the labor day, Saturday the 4th or 11 of September and with me and we will see what we get. I’m probably alienating some people and that isn’t my intention, but I find it frustrating to see ppl floundering w/no accurate info, simply hypothesis and no direction… AND, do we have to BE CATTLE and follow the rest?????????????????? Though perhaps that is resolving itself!

Whatcha think?

To those who ARE handling the formal reunion, if you are considering that weekend,we can change it….

Takecare,

Comments: Me again. I found a couple of things out – a little after Kim’s post…but just the same…

I talked to Gulf High staff and was told that Reunion Celebrations has told them they are planning a reunion for Class of 1985. I checked out their website, www.reunioncelebrations.com and I see a Gulf 1985 reunion listed, but dates and locations are TBD (to be determined). Their phone number is 813-874-9967, with pretty normal business hours.

Everyone can register your name & info with them online, so hopefully we’ll get the information we need as well as assisting them in knowing where we are and getting the information THEY need.

There are a lot of us out here who want to help, and hope Hilda et al will contact us.

I’m gonna sign off at this point, checking website and emails. Kim, if anyone needs help, please let them know there are plenty of us here who would like to be involved and can lighten the workload. Additionally, it’s nice to just know what’s going on…. Thanks!

Take care,

Hilda wants to post once she has specifcs such as dates, place, cost, etc… Hope this reassures everyone that although we don’t have much info yet, things are certainly in progress.

Comments: Hello Everyone.

Ok, I’m gonna vet… I realized since one of my best friends went to school in Boston (1985 grad) and they are having their 20 yr reunion this summer…. Obviously WE are not… But, I don’t know if this has been verbalized before, but what if “we” (those who are interested and REALLY CAN WORK ON IT…) tried to get a weekend picnic together or something of that sort? It doesn’t have to be a full scale formal reunion, but obviously there is interest on this board and I can’t help but noticing, NO ONE IS IN CHARGE! (And yes, that includes me too!)

I don’t even KNOW who, IF ANYONE is supposed to be coordinating this… I see a lot of names of people who aren’t communicating in this arena.

I’ll be honest, I’m a little annoyed – pardon my frankness (SOME things never change!) HOWEVER, I can’t help but sit here and notice that we have seen nothing SUBSTANTIAL and nothing is materializing. I see a lot of info about Inga but is it all really her responsibility? AND THEN, if they can’t manage to plan a 20 yr reunion, does this mean we’ll never HAVE another reunion????

Whatcha think? If a handful of us got together via email (or WHATEVER….) to put our heads together and try to figure out where everyone is or NEARLY everyone…. Maybe we could get a Labor Day picnic or something along those lines going. We have time for Labor Day, it’d still be summer and if anyone travels, they’d most likely have an extra day…

IF everyone brought a covered dish & some chairs, maybe we could charge a small fee for hot dogs/hamburgers/sodas, napkins, paper plates, etc…. we’d have it together good enough to get to mingle and not just let the time pass by… It wouldn’t cost us much. Ok, some will have to volunteer to clean up afterwards and of course the PRE PLANNING, but we could go from there OR we can consider maybe trying to plan an event at a hall. Still, I think a park is the best bet, but not in the dead of summer!

Bottom line is no one is TAKING charge, in a manner by which we can recognize or look to…. in which case, I say, if so many of us are interested, must we wait for others to take action – and maybe we are sorta “wrong” for doing so?

(OK, if I said too much I’m sorry… it’s still my nature!)

Let me know what you guys think and who is interested. My email is geppeta@aol.com and I’m an email addict so you’ll hear back from me soon. Take care all… and please don’t blast me for free speaking….. If I’m wrong, be nice, slap my hand, and I’ll crawl back into my hole…k?

I am going to send a copy of this to a few people I have emails of and see what sort of thoughts they have too.

Now living in NC, married to a fabulous guy, mountain biking several days a week with one 24-hour race under my belt and looking for another, if you can believe that! Have already completed 2 half marathons, and several centuries on my bike… the longest ride being 150 miles in a day. Agh! I love the punishment I guess, it reminds me I’m alive and healthy. Started a women’s specific mountain biking club www.girlzridingindirt.com in the Raleigh area. Have recently re- married after being widowed for several years, no kids but McAllister (Mac) has two beautiful girls. One of whom starts college in the fall. Life is better than I ever expected!

I had a blast at the last reunion and cant wait for this one. My husband, Kurt’s, class reunion is this year too and we are going on a cruise to the Bahamas for it. Please don’t have the reunion June 17 – 20 (Kurt’s reunion) or June 25 – July 1 (Mission Trip to Costa Rica.) Well I hope to see you all soon. I miss the beach!!

Just letting you know that reunion plans are underway!!!!!!!! HOORAY!!!!!!

I have it on good authority that Inga has indeed started the ball rolling, Hilda (Font) Martin is involved, and they will be forming a local committee soon.

For those of you that were working on getting prices and stuff, I guess you can hold off for now til the committee is formed. But I want to thank all of you who were willing to go the extra mile to try to make things happen.

For those that I have had contact with regarding reunion stuff, I hope we can continue to keep in touch and that we will see each other at the reunion…..20 years has been too long!!!!

I received an update from Michele Corby, who through the grapevine has found out some reunion info. This is part of what she wrote:

“I have heard through Chris McFarland that Inga Stanelin has indeed contacted reunion celebrations and we are supposed to be receiving an initial contact letter trying to locate people. ”

She added that she has someone local that may be a better option than reunion celebrations…maybe less costly. She is offering her help to Inga, who is out in California. I know that we need tons of help guys. We all want a reunion, we all need to do what we can to get it going.

Please get addresses, e-mails, whatever info you can on our classmates, so that they may be contacted. The more help we get, the easier it will go.

That place on Hudson Beach, while probably not the greatest might be an affordable option. I believe it is supposed to be a hotel or restaurant (or both??)

I appreciate you looking into Reunion celebrations. I have postings on all the sites for alums to hooked up to one of the sites, but more for them to tell their friends to get on one of the sites. I believe there is a way to register through the school as well. I am still waiting on something from Michele Corby, to see what she and/or Michelle Kessler has from the 10 year. I think the 10 year was like 75 per person.

Thanks for all you have done to keep me on the right track, and keeping my spirits up about this. I just hope after all this, that I can go.

Comments: Hello everyone,

I have been reading all of the updates. I was looking forward to a 20th reunion. Hope we can pull it off, but like Mike says late is better than never.

I have been in Maryland for 6 years now. Before that, London was my home for 3 years with a brief time in Spain, working with Youth with a Mission, helping homeless people as well as HIV/AIDs victims.

I have been married for 7 years now to the most perfect man in the world, Ramon. We own a small car dealership here. I also work full-time for the State of Maryland. We have 7 cats, 1 dog – a chow, and a cockatiel. We both love children, but some women are not designed that way I guess, as our kids are the animals.

Feel free to drop me a line. If I can do anything from here to help with the reunion arrangements, let me know.

Comments: Liz, Not to worry about it. We’ll do what we can and see what our options are. The sites listed are OK ( personally a church or a senior center are NOT that exciting a place to meet those we haven’t seen in at LEAST 10 years but they are options ), but I think we’d rather see about having something ‘similar’ to what we had at our 10 yr. reunion. Maybe someplace near the water or ( if we can get lucky ) on the beach or waterfront. I can’t exactly remember WHAT the cost was back than but it wasn’t more than $100 ( as I was in school STILL and purchased Deana’s ticket for her so she could attend ). Ideally I believe IF we can keep it below $150, it would be VERY good. I will try and contact Reunion Celebrations, Inc. and see what we are possibly looking at location and money wise. I figure there will be about 150 students from our class ( at best, some of our classmates have vanished ) with an additional 100 – 150 spouse/ others for the formal dinner/ dance ( on Saturday ) and the meet & greet ( on Friday ). As far as Sunday goes, it really doesn’t matter to me as many families are leaving anyway.

Comments: Hello again folks….

First let me say WOW!!!!! All these responses and positive e-mails I have received are so encouraging. I even received an e-mail from someone who has been following our saga. I will attach that to this message at the end.

Michael, Thank you for being so understanding. You have always been a great guy. In junior high, I counted you among my nearest and dearest. Your note reminds me why. I like the idea of maybe waiting a year, but we may not have to. Also, thank you for the kudos on the monetary considerations.

Lynn, no worries about answering after awhile. I am just glad you did….all of you.

I have e-mailed with Michele Corby Chamberlain. She lives near Michelle Kessler Guy. Michele C thinks Michelle K (G) may have some of the 10 year papers. I do not know that Michele will head it up, but she seemed willing to help, and I think THAT is the biggest thing….having people to work together. I am willing to do what I can from TN (within reason of course). I do not think I will be anyhwere near Florida beofre next summer. We are a class of 488 I believe. Surely we can get a group together.

Here is what I got from the peson mentioned above.

********************************************************
Here’s a list of possible locations:
Gulf Harbors Civic Association, Gene Senger, 727-848-0596
Pasco Board of Realtors, Sammie Copeland, 727-848-8507
Dunedin Community Center, Elaine, 727-298-3286
Dunedin Fine Arts Center, Kiah, 727-298-3322
Cretan Cultural Center (Palm Harbor), Joan Frangedus, 727-787-6498
Heritage Center-Craig Park (Tarpon Springs), Phyllis Kolianos, 727-943- 4624
St Nicholas (Tarpon Springs), Diane, 727-937-3540
Palm Harbor Senior Center, Irene, 727-771-6000
Dunedin Senior Center, Pam/Cathy, 727-298-3299

None of these locations have an on-site caterer. That can really help keep the cost down since catering prices tend to be elevated in local hotels & country clubs. However, that means that you have the extra task of finding someone to do the food but there are so many catering options in Pasco & Pinellas.
**********************************************************

I am not even sure how many attended the 10 year, but I bet this one will be bigger!! I know there are reunion organizers out there. Maybe we have someone in our class who is an event planner by profession that can give us a discount (or do it free???????).

Another suggestion…get all those we know to at least register their addresses with this website, www.classmates.com or www.classreport.com/usa/fl/new_port_richey/ghs/1985

The more we register, the more people that know about the efforts to get something together. We all know word of mouth is the best advertising.

I believe we can pull this off….

Can someone local please look into those places and see what is available for the summer?? I do not know where my 10 year memory book is or maybe we would be able to gauge what the attendance was/could be.

If anyone has suggestions, please post them here.

Thanks everyone!!!!!

Comments: Sorry Liz, that it took me so long to answer back. Hilda works at one of the local schools. I have seen her a couple of times. I will see if I can email her. Chris McFarland was my son’s teacher a few years ago, I will see if I can get him as well. I email Dawn Cook Irwin and she is local as well. I will be more than willing to call around and see what I can get on rental of any halls, motels, etc? What area would you like me to check? Pasco, Pinellas, or Hillsborough? I am sure that most of us thought that our representatives from the council was getting this together and maybe that is our fault. But, I am more than willing to help and be on a team. Please let me know. My email address is sunshine145@verizon.net.

Comments: I never thought you were snippy or short Liz and my angst was in no way directed at you. Lori is right in that we are behind right now and I would say this. IF for some reason it looks our 20th might not come together and be as great as it SHOULD be. Let’s move it back one year……….it’s TRUE it won’t be the 20th persay, BUT I’d rather have something I can remember than the alternative. To tell you the truth IF we did something similar to the 10th………….it would be fine with me. I’m not sure if it’s cost effective for most ( a good point to bring up by the way ) but it was fun and all we really want is the chance to see those we haven’t seen in 10 or more years. Please have Michelle contact me IF she wants to get this started.

Comments: THIS IS THE RESPONSE FROM LORI ERIGO KATZ FROM THE CLASS OF 1984. NOW…DO WE HAVE A LOCAL TO HEAD THIS UP??? I DO NOT HAVE A CLASSMATES MEMBERSHIP. DOES ANYONE HAVE A MEMBERSHIP THAT WOULD BE WILLING TO POST ABOUT NEEDING VOLUNTEERS, A PLACE, CONNECTIONS ETC??? IS THERE A LOCAL WILLING TO LOOK INTO A PLACE, COSTS ETC?? ONE PERSON CANNOT DO THIS…WE NEED A TEAM….AND A LARGE ONE AT THAT. EVERY ANYONE HAVE SUGGESTIONS ON WHEN AND WHERE?? WE NEED PEOPLE TO DO LEGWORK. I WILL TALK MORE WITH LORI AFTER THE NEW YEAR AND WILL KEEP YOU ALL POSTED.

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE THE RECORDS FROM THE 10 YEAR REUNION ARE?? WHO HAS THEM?? IN THE MEANTIME, MAY YOU ALL HAVE A SAFE AND BLESSED NEW YEAR….HERE’S TO SEEING YOU IN 2005!!!!!

LIZ

LORI’S RESPONSE FOLLOWS.

Hey Liz, yes it looks like you are getting off to a late start, but still may have an awesome reunion…

First thing you need to do is recruit volunteers. The main thing we concentrated on was finding people. We thought we did a good job and tried to cover as many bases as possible but did not reach all of the masses.

Suggestions: www.classmates.com, GHS alumni website, newspaper ads, word of mouth (you’d be amazed at how many of our alumni were still in Pasco), going through the phone book, check out any records retained from the 10 year reunion (did you have one?).

I’m packing up right now getting ready to go to Orlando for New Year’s, but I’ll be able to help some more later this weekend. The biggest thing you could do right now, while everyone is still in the holiday spirit is to RECRUIT, RECRUIT, RECRUIT volunteers.

Hope you have a wonderful holiday!

Comments: Just letting you all know that I have e-mails out to Lori Erigo Katz (c/o 84) and Michele Corby on where we get started, how we get started..and so forth. Mike, if my last post was snippy, I apologize. It was not meant to be. At any rate, this has to be a joint effort folks. Those of you with contacts need to be getting ideas about when and where we want to hold this thing. Input folks. And we need a local leader.

Comments: Hello again all. Mike, no offense taken. Yes, it is typical that we all want it done and not get the ball rolling ourselves. I have not lived in NPR for 13 years. I go back one week a year. I will try to contact Lori from 1984. If it is up to me, it will be affordable and not all this high fallootin’ fancy garb. I also recognize that that is not what everyone will want. I know of quite a few families that did not attend the 1984 reunion because of the cost, and that is what we need to work on as well. Most of us have families, and some of us have no family in the area, so that adds up to hotel bills, not to mention leaving the kiddies with a stranger, or not going to the reunion at all. I too am at a crossroads in my life Michael, and will not be able to devote the time this project needs. Someone in the area needs to head it up to start with. I know many of us out-of-state people will do calls and e-mails etc. Jeff, I think mid summer is what we should shoot for since the kids go back to school at the first of August in many states these days. I fear that at this late date, we will not have the pick we had hoped for. Give us ideas folks, so we can start with phone calls. Any volunteers to head this up??

Try and communicate with Lori Erigo-Katz. She is the communications rep for the class of 1984. I am sure she helped to get their reunion planned and from what they told me, it was GREAT! Beyond that I am not sure but like Jeff said, most people will need to request vacation time as soon as possible for this weekend. I hope you’ve all had a Merry Christmas.

Comments: I had tried to post again to no avail. Lynn, I had no idea Inga was on TV. Great for her!!!! Was Gaelynn Wolf one of our class officers?? I still keep in touch with her. Hilda Font??? Michele Crumley??? I may be thinking of the wrong years. Steve Rodopoulos. HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM My brother used to run into Scott Mathieson from time to time. I think they live near the high school. At any rate, surely Inga did not do it all by herself last time. Didn’t Melinda Smith have a lot to do with planning the last one?? I will do whatever I can from here if we can get a team together. I will not be Florida bound for about a year probably (or reunion time…whichever is first). My brother and Mom are still in NPR. If anyone has their yearbook available, look up our class officers. How do we get the ball rolling?? We will not have a decent place if we don’t get started. E-mail me if anyone knows what we need to do.

Comments: Not to sound sarcastic but this is typical. People are excited to have the chance to be with their friends at the 20th and yet the supposed class reps have yet to make any headway. Our class alumni reps were Inga, Trudy, and I believe Michelle Corby ( Sheridan ). Liz you want to do some of the following ( or better yet have HELP ): Start to contact Reunion planning organizations and get info on potential locations ( think of a target window for the reunion, better yet more than one time ), compile a list of possible locations, i.e. Clearwater Beach, the Westin Innisbrook, Saddlebrook. The you need to obtain a contact list of as many members of our class as possible. then disperse this list to a trusted group of people who will attempt phone contact with reunion info and , if possible, mail the info out as well. I KNOW I’m making this out as a simple task but it is rather complex. I would start by contacting alumni reunion planning services first. I would love to help but I’m in the middle of prepping for Law School and as of yet it remains to be seen IF I’m here in the area ( Stetson ) or relocating to Miami ( UM or FIU ) or Indiana. Just keep me posted. I’ll check back as often as is feasible.

I can’t believe we’ll be having our 20 year reunion in just one more year…. I’m actually looking forward to it. There have been so many changes over the last 20 years, except for the fact that I’m still living in New Port Richey!! Just turned 37, I’m in the Real Estate biz, I have a beautiful 12 1/2 year old daughter named Miranda, and a terrific man… his name is Richard… we’ve been together for 8 1/2 years now.

I look forward to seeing as many Alumni as possible next year (2005) at our 20 year reunion!!

Thanks to all of you who have supported me and bought a copy of the book from www.booksurge.com. I hope you are enjoying it and see benefit for kids. If you really like it, please consider going to www.booksurge.com and finding the book and writing a review. You can also go into Borders and they can order a copy or go to www.bn.com and click on the used copies. For some reason they say the don’t have new copies available. The ones from the used copies are actually new from the publisher. We are working to get that cleared up. If you would like a signed copy send me an email. We’ll exchange addresses. It would be $14.00 for the book and shipping.
Or go to paypal.com and send $14.00 to mgranger@ameritech.net
I look forward to hearing from you.

Comments: Hey, everybody. I wrote a book! Check out a sample at http://www.booksurge.com/author.php3?accountID=IMPR02166 It’s a book of quotes and explanations for kids on topics like success, failure, attitude, dreams, goals, growth, character, excellence, and courage. My premise is that if kids start filling their minds with good thoughts, and creating good habits, now they will be so far ahead of their peers at college graduation that they will be unstoppable as adults. It’s a reflection of the growth and changes I’ve gone through the last few years.
Looking forward to the 20th!
God Bless

Life has not turned out exactly like planned….but life is good and I am happy. I went to school for quite a few years ending up with several degrees. Ironic that what I am doing now really doesn’t require any of what i went to school for. I am divorced with no children….maybe some day I will have kids. I stay active playing softball and working out. My sister has gotten me involved with triathlons and running. I ran my first marathon in Jan and was in St. Petersburg last week for a triathlon. Anyone else doing these things? Ok…well…enough of the novel. Please say hi if you remember who I am.. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope everyone is living happily.

Comments: It’s hard to believe that the 20 year Reunion will be rolling around soon. Which reminds me that I’ve done quite a bit of rolling around in that time too. I managed to get my Bachelor’s from UF and did some time in the Navy, got married then divorced just to highlight a few things. I haven’t as yet had the pleasure of child rearing yet and it’s getting a little late for that too….ha ha. It’s hard to believe but I’ve caught the education bug again and I’m about to return to school to get my DVM ( Dr. in Veterinary Med ), seems I’ve got a mid life crisis and want to be called “Dr.” and do something that I love and can even make some money at. There are so many that I know from school, some were really close friends, some acqauintences, some not so close…..but you are all brothers and sisters to me…feel free to write and we can chat if I’m not too busy trying to study. All the best to you all!!!!!!!!

Comments: I came across this site while wasting time at work and got all nostalgic. A lot has happened since ’85. After a lackluster academic career at GHS, I spent several years bumming around Florida working odd jobs (everything from radio to restaurants) while going to school part time (Santa Fe Community College in Gainesville). Got married in Gainesville in ’97 and moved to Baltimore the following year. I then decided to go to school full time at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC). I’m a visual arts major in my final semester. I’m also an independant artist who works within various media. I’ve done film and video, but work mostly as a photographer and digital artist. I’ve had a few shows of my work and hope to really break out within the next couple of years. If anyone remembers me, or even if you don’t but have an interest in visual arts, drop me a line.
