At our monthly THS66 Dinner Party last night we discussed

moving the starting time up a couple hours to make it easier

for people a long distance away to come to the monthly dinners.

That seemed reasonable, as most of us are now retired, and the

timing is of little concern.  So for now, we are going to try 5pm

and hope that it will be more convenient for people to join us.

So, the new time will be....

5 pm at the Royal Panda on the 2nd Thursday of each month.

Posted November 13, 2015

We had a pleasant chat last night

Please consider joining us next month at the new time....5pm!

It is with deep regret that we report the passing

of Jackie Keesling (Smith) tonight.  Over the past

5 years she fought a courageous battle with cancer,

and is now resting in peace.  Both Marye Anderson

(Fenimore) and Cindy Boyte (Compton) have been

able to give her comfort and support during her ordeal.

Nikk White of the Class of 1965 is wondering if anybody

knows if his class is doing anything special this year to

celebrate their 50th anniversary since graduating.  If

you know of anything I can pass on, please send an

EMAIL (to Dave Hansen) and I'll pass it on to him and

post it on our THS66 Bulletin Board as well.

Below is a picture Nikk sent of his old 1956 Harley.

(Hey Nikk...I thought you drove a BMW Isetta to school.  Don't remember this one!)

Lake Okoboji is a popular vacation and recreation spot in

 northwest Iowa, including an amusement park named Arnold's Park.  
It has some beautiful old cars in it, along with recreations of

storefronts and the way Arnold's Park looked in the '50s and '60s.  
The Roof Garden was a well-known dance hall, drawing people

 from long distances to dance to big-name rock & roll bands. 
If you like older cars this is worth watching ----- enjoy

March 2015 THS66 Dinner Party

Posted March 3, 2015

Dear Class of '66,

It is with great sadness that I share with you the

 news of Jill Coryell Bickell's passing.  She died

 last Fri, March 2nd, after a four year battle with

 lymphoma.  Jill and Steve returned to "the Valley"

 last summer from their home of 13 years in Wallawa.

I saw Jill very recently when she and Kathie Cooper

 Richards and I met for lunch.  We reminisced for hours

and she was as happy and upbeat as you all will

remember her.  When we hugged good-bye she said,

 "This was so much fun, let's do it every month."

We scheduled another lunch but sadly she had to

cancel because her father had fallen the night before

and was in the hospital, he died recently too.  So much

sadness for the Coryell family and their loved ones.

Janet Coryell and her husband Ed Gill invite you

all to a Celebration of Life for Jill Coryell Bickell at 

their home.  

Saturday, April 11, 2015 at 2 pm

I'll see you there.

We've concluded another THS66 Summer Picnic

at Cook Park this past week.  Had a little trouble

when a zombi attacked one of our THS66 classmates....

.........But Mike (Horyn) survived to enjoy another

of our picnics.  We also enjoyed the company of a

few spouses, friends and fellow classmates from 

1967 and 1968.  We thank all who came, and hope

to see you again in coming years.  Now, to view the

photos, please click on the below zombie photo.......

BTW.....The zombie people were filming an episode

for their TV series and were using Shelter #3 for their

staging area before we used it for our picnic.

We had a small group this week, but were happy
to have Jan and Nikk back for a couple months
before they continue their 5 year dream vacation!

But what is that book in Nikk's hands?  Despite 
the extra antlers, let's take a closer look.........

We need to get closer than that though.  Let's
 take a peek inside to see what John has done........

Note that John Driscol has created the most 
fabulous and classy mobile home on an old
Federal chassis.  If you double click on the
images you can read the print, which will give
you an appreciation for the fine craftsmanship
John applied to this long term project.  As you
can see, he is not only talented, but also quite
artistic as he continues puttering on this unique
rig.  For what it is worth, this motorhome is
the nicest one featured in the entire book!!!

FWIW:  Credit needs to be given to Carl Andersen
for his beautiful photographs of Johns motorhome.

One last thing.....Jan & Nikk were celebrating
their 7th year together with a glass of wine.

They enjoyed their first glass of wine together
while attending the 2007 Crawfish Festival in
conjunction with our THS66 reunion that year.

Dear All,

This evening we enjoyed fine dining in what is claimed to 
be the only German restaurant in this state. No matter if
 their claim is true, the food was as good or better than
 Gustav's in Portland. After that wonderful dining experience
 we were  considering a possible quick tan.

Wishing all a great time reminiscing next Thursday. How are 
plans for our 50th developing?

Posted July 24, 2014

Linda Gilliland has been working hard on our

50th Reunion 

plans.  She has tentatively come up with the below.....

Friday evening event (WELCOME)

Saturday optional offerings (breakfast, shopping or perhaps golf?)

Saturday evening EVENT

Sunday awesome picnic, prizes, goodbyes, photos, etc

If you have any thoughts, ideas or want to help out....Linda
would like to hear from you. Just send her a note to this site....

 are finalized, be sure to peek at the THS66 Bulletin Board
now and then to find out what is transpiring.

Jim & Michele Connelly joined with Ron & Nancy Dale of

Idaho didn't want to miss one of our monthly dinner parties!

This is what Ron had to say about it......

Dear All,

We all dined this evening in separate states. We miss the 
wonderful servings from the Royal Panda but enjoyed 90 + 
temps here today with Sunshine filled skies. 

This evening we dined at Johnny Carino's Italian restaurant
 in Meridian, ID where our first picture was taken.

After a lovely dinner we moved to the Dales patio (2nd picture)
where we enjoyed hearty conversation until a beautiful
 sunset ended our evening.

We trust your evening was equally blessed with enjoyable
 conversation and hearty conversation.

Hope you join us next month!!!

Click on the speaker in the middle of the Record and it plays the entire song.


You now have 30 years of the Top 10 Songs for each month of the year

 from 1955 to 1985.  This is beyond incredible ... for the listener who 

can relive those wonderful music days of yesteryear...



Incidentally, you can not only hear the music, but 

you get to see the original label, in addition to getting a photo of 

the artist, biography and discography.  All this with a nudge to your mouse!

Art & Lynne Biederman


Mr Biederman was the first Principal of

Twality Junior High School

when it opened in 1961.  He retired in 1986,
and now lives on the Central Oregon Coast

When Twality was changed to be a middle
school, this sign was given to Art, which he
put in the backyard of his home.  The cool
damp air has caused it to rot out over the
years, but it still brings back fond memories!

BTW.....Art's wife Lynne also worked for
the Tigard School District.

(FWIW....NO!  I did not carve my initials into the
sign that can be seen in the last photo.  Perhaps
Dan Hage knows the culprit!!!  <GRIN>  Haven't
figured who carved TLH though........could have
been somebody from a subsequent year.)
