Comments: Wow how time flies! I moved from the US in 1991 and have yet to return. Spent most of the years in England (from 1991 to 2004 in London). Retreated to the suburbs with husband and two children. A week before number 3 was due my darling husband announced he was being sent to Kenya in East Africa to work. That was 2008. With baby in arms and young daughters at my side we moved to Nairobi. Back in the London suburbs again and looking to restart a career after a decade off to raise the cherubs. Sorry I've missed all the class reunions but I am still alive and no I am not fabulously wealthy owning and running a hotel in Europe (apparently there was a rumour going round which made me chuckle).

Always the one to take an alternative path… best wishes to all who may have a faint memory of the smallest one in the class.

I have been with my husband for 20 years and we have 2 children, a ten year old daughter and an 9 year old son. I spent 14 years in the Navy right out of high school and then went to work for the post office as a letter carrier for the past 8 years. I contemplated going to our 20 year reunion but in the end decided not to go and do regret it. I would love to hear from anybody who remembers me.

Best wishes to all.

Thanks Jerry for contacting Reunions Celebrations and handling the blurry copy with all the big foreheads … lol!

Receiving this just helped me remember what a wonderful time John and I had! He’s still stationed in NC, we continue with our once a month visits, but I keep praying that he retires in 2008.

Oh, and a little blast from the past news, any of you who attended Gulf Jr. — my son is in 6th grade at Gulf Middle and has Mr. Lively and Mrs. Verheyen as teachers. LOL!

Hope to hear from some new/old friends!
Take care, Angela

It sounds like everyone had a great time at the reunion. I was sad that I missed it, but it was my son’s first birthday. I am looking forward to the next one in 5 years. I can’t believe it will be our ’25th.”

I just started a part-time business to do while staying at home with my little guy. If any Moms are looking for something fun, let me know. My new website is www.alicia.mwishes.com

Comments: Just dropping by to see all the familiar (and not so familiar names). Is it me or did 20 years fly by REALLY fast?!?

I am divorced (recently, but after MANY separations, so it is more like FINALLY divorced – unfortunately, HIS idea, so it has been tough for me AND our 3 kids) Kasey 14, Drew 12, & Jake 6.

I only have two months before my oldest can get her driver’s permit. She should do fine, it’s the other drivers on the road that I worry about. I hated to miss the reunion, but have alot going on these days and just couldn’t make it. But if ANYONE has pictures they can email to me, I would love to see them. Jerry did say that there would probably be a 25th, so I am looking forward to that.

I would love to hear from “old” friends. I am a stay at home mom, but I still manage to stay busy with my kids. My youngest has an autistic type disorder, which you wouldn’t know by looking at him. We had an incredible in-home occupational therapist for three years, who literally pulled him out of his shell. He still has difficulty, which it is hard for me to see him struggle when he is so smart, I just wish I could make it easier for him!! His first grade teacher is a GOD-send!! We did almost move to NPR this past summer, but decided to stay at his school where they were familiar with him. Good thing we did, the real estate market is not as good as it was for awhile, I probably would have been too stressed out waiting for my house to sell.

Well, Take care, everyone!!

She said that they are looking into it, and that anyone who is unhappy about the quality of the photo can return it for a refund. I’m sorry about the poor quality of the photo — we’ll make sure we get a better photo at the next get-together.

Comments: Thanks to everyone who attended the reunion. I hope all had a good time, and that even more people can make it next time. If I can get email addresses for most of the class, we can probably plan it without using a reunion company and reduce the cost significantly. (So, if you are reading this and haven’t posted on this page yet, please do so. Or, at a minimum, shoot me a quick email with your contact info — don’t worry, I won’t share it with anyone else if you don’t want me to — so that I know how to get in touch with you next time.) Having email addresses from more people would also make it easier to get input from more people to make sure that there is something for everyone. The feedback I’ve heard so far is “casual is better” and “make sure there is at least one event that involves the whole family”. I agree.

I’ve also seen the complaints about the reunion photo, and I’ve asked Reunion Celebrations to look into it. If the picture is as bad as everyone is saying — and I have no doubt that it is that bad — I’ve asked Reunion Celebrations to refund the purchase price. I’ll let you know what I hear.

Let me know who do we send to for a correction if possible. Or at least they should’ve down sized to 5×7 when they realized how blurry it was. I am so disappointed. Can’t look back at this & say this is so & so if you can’t see their face!! Sorry to complain, but I was excited about having an updated pic on my classmates/friends.

Looking through the CD there appears to be about 40 locals, we should plan a local picnic/activity for the families (Good idea Kim). And for the guys/gals that have a motorcycle we need to set up a ride soon…. or if your into the dirt, thats another weekend.

When the reunion ended on Saturday night at 11:00, alot of people were heading out to hang out at the pool and I told my husband that we would only stay a half an hour longer. Well, after standing in the lobby talking for a half hour then going up to Dawn’s room and finally making it to the pool, it was 3:00am when we finally left to go home! At one point, I looked over at my husband and he was laying on the lawn chair, sweating in his clothes and half asleep! I also told him in a joking way at that point not to be a party pooper! haha (us wives!) Actually, we don’t get out much with 3 kids! It was great to see alot of old friends and everyone from our class! I think everyone looked great! I am looking forward to the 25th! This time I may drive seperate from my husband! Take care, and much happiness to the class of 86!!!

I was genuinely happy to see everyone I did, and yes, I wish more people would have come. There were a lot of faces that I miss, but none more than our dear friend, Troy, who I enjoyed so much at the 10 yr.

The night went by too fast. I didn’t spend as much time with some people as I would have liked, and for that I am sorry — guess I was too busy dancing (some things never change.)

I agree with Cheryl, a cruise in 2011 (for the 25th) would be an excellent idea, and wouldn’t really cost much more than what we all spent for this weekend. (Kids could come along – for a family vacation, or maybe not). I have been a Travel Agent for over 12 years here locally at one of the oldest agencies in Pasco which specializes in groups (great rates!).

Getting back to this reunion, I appreciated this one so much more than the 10 yr. I think back then I was still so worried what people would think of me, old insecurities and hurts seemed to resurface. But now, in my eyes, with age comes contentment.

With all the energy that I have — raising two kids, still renovating my old “crack”er house Downtown, working full time, and sometimes part time during the holidays, and just graduating from college a month ago — I should be a size 7 too Renee — but I’m not and I probably won’t be again since I love to cook and eat too much (and not dry chicken or chewy bread — lol).

And although it has been 20 years, I refuse to believe that we are getting “old”, especially since so many of us lasted the 14+ minute “Rapper’s Delight” …. lol …. whether sweaty, out of breath, and exhausted when it was over — we did it!

I’m getting ready for another blast from the past, when my son, Charles (11 y/o) starts Gulf Middle next month, and daughter, Gina (my 5 y/o mini-me … am I in trouble!) enters Kindergarten at Mittye P. Locke.

As busy as life is as a single mother waiting for my best friend to retire from the USAF, I would love to keep in touch with my other friends.

May you all live well, love much, and laugh often until we meet again.

Comments: So hello class of 1986-went to the 20th Reunion this past weekend. Jerry and crew you did us proud, I just wished a few more faces might have been there. Been working for GE/Xerox for 12 years administering Federal government contracts in St Pete. They have been very good to me and afforded me a very fortunate life. Traveled quite a bit, England, San Francisco, Annapolis, Las Vegas and Seattle to name a few.

Since the love of my life (so far)(he passed away a result of an auto accident in 1993) still hoping and having faith to meet someone again- someday.

My Mom & Dad still live in New Port Richey and I visit frequently.

Well I hope all is well with all my graduating classmates..I wish you all health, happiness and good fortune! Feel free to email @ heceta96@aol.com .

(thank you Jody, Matt & Lester) Lester, I want a copy of that picture of me standing on the chair next to you & my husband! Ha! Ha! Good thing I have a great sense of humor. But, Lester needs to get rid of that “rug” on his chin, makes you look too old! We really need to have a get together more often. Maybe we could all meet at Anderson/Howard/or John Chestnut Park with our families before school starts for our kids. E-mail or call me I’ll help set it up!! Cell 727-919-8796.

Comments: The reunion was quite an event. It was good to see old faces, oops, did I say OLD? Everyone looked great for “our age”. I’ll be 38 next Saturday (7/22) and I think I’ll have to start lying about it soon.

For the next reunion in 5 years (25th), we should have a family picnic 1st for the first night and a formal for the next night. My kids were really disappointed that the family day was cancelled. I have 3 kids: Nikki is 11 and going to River Ridge (middle school, help), Matt is going to Cypress in 4th grade and Sydney Brooke is 2. I think I’m done with kids now. I still enjoy teaching 2nd grade, but really need to find time to go back to Shapes! Three pregnancies will kill a figure. Ha. Although, running children to soccer, football, cheerleading, scouts, baseball, chorus, etc. I should be a size 7!

John and I have been married 12 1/2 years and we have a beautiful home in River Ridge. He didn’t want to move to New England and buy a victorian home; therefore, he ripped to roof off our home and made it a 2nd story victorian. Now I just have 3500 sq. ft to clean, yeah! Well, it was nice to talk to many of you last night. But all the locals, should have been there. We missed you. Still trying to find Kim Steuer. If anyone has heard from her since 1986, let me know. Thanks.

Comments: Planning for the 20 year reunion for the Class of 1986 has started. If you would like to be involved, or just weigh-in with any preferences you have, please email me. A few of the bigger decisions that need to be made:

– When to have it (spring, summer or fall)?

– What events (a few ideas include: Friday night cocktail party/informal get-together; Saturday golf outing; Saturday night dinner/dance; Sunday family picnic)?

– Location preference (in/around NPR; Clearwater; Tampa/St. Pete)?

And, of course, all of the above will dictate the cost. The Class of ’85 held a Friday night cocktail party and a Saturday evening dinner/dance at Innisbrook, and I believe the cost was about $130/person. Our 10 year reunion, which included a Friday night cocktail party and a Saturday evening dinner/dance at Saddlebrook, was $85/person. We want to make sure that everyone that wants to attend is able, so please let me know if you think there is a $/person amount that would make it cost-prohibitive for some of our classmates.

Comments: Hi Everyone! I found this website while trying to find information on our 20 year reunion next year. If anyone is currently planning this, please contact me. My email is provided. It seems that if no one has begun planning for it by now, we’re running out of time since it takes about a year to plan everything. If anyone knows how to get in touch with Jerry Karnick let me know that too. I would be willing to be on the committee to plan this. I’m going to get everyone’s emails from this website and classmates.com to try to contact all of you in a mass email. Hopefully we can get in touch with as many people as possible and get ideas for planning the 2006 reunion. I can’t believe it’s been almost 20 years already. Let’s get started!!

By the way, I’ve been married almost 12 years. Have two beautiful kids, Sean (8) and Madeline (5). They keep me very busy. I work with my dad at his engineering firm as the Senior Hydrogeologist. My husband owns motorcycle and jetski dealerships in the area (Gulfcoast Kawasakiin NPR is one of them). We enjoy traveling, spending time with family, riding our horses and surprise…jet skiing and boating. I have lived in Palm Harbor for 16 years and love it here. Hope everyone else is doing well and hope to hear back from some of you. Terri

Came back to FL and decided to be a police officer, but after 7 years I injured my back and retired. Started my own business dealing with sports cars and race car fabrication, and became a race track driving instructor, which I do regularly. Married, divorced, and now re-married to wonderful Debbie, we welcomed our baby girl Holly to the world this past April. What a gift! Through this site, I’ve made contact with a couple of people, and I’m excited that I may get to see some of you soon! We’ve purchased property in Williamsburg, VA, close to the historic area, and we will be building a home there soon. FL is too hot for too long each year. Hope to hear from others as this site grows.

After reading all the notes here, I had to dig up my old year books to see your faces again. Some how I never would have thought we would all change so much (even Gulf High has grown up!) Since ’86, I joined the Army for a while, earned money for college, and earned a degree in Nursing. I have been married a couple of times, but I think I have finally learned my lesson. I have a daughter who turned 16 when I wasn’t looking, they grow up so fast. I would love to hear from you guys sometime. Keep updating the message board!

Before that, I kicked around NPR for about three years after graduation, working multiple part-time jobs and going out clubbing every night. I never quite made it to college, however I’ve had a very fullfilling life, and I’m quite satisfied. I have been in a devoted relationship for thirteen and a half years, and we are currently engaged to be married on our fifteenth anniversary. My parents and brother and his family live in NPR still, but I hardly ever get over there. I was listed as unfindable for our tenth anniversary despite my parents living in the same house for thirty-two years. Hopefully I’ll be included in our twentieth, you have three years to find me 😉 Drop me a line if you feel like it.

Comments: Hi Class of 1986. It is pretty amazing that we could never imagine getting older but now 32, married with 2 stepdaughters (11 & 13), a daughter 5, and a son 2, college graduate, Varsity Cheerleading Coach for NPR PAL Buccaneers, ya da ya da ya da.. Feeling pretty old…and missing the “good ole days”. If anyone knows the location of Kimberly Ann Steuer (1986 Gulf), please contact me. Looking forward to hearing from friends. P.S. For all my Gulf teachers that are STILL there, I say “hello”.
