Welcome to the site for the Wheat Ridge Class of 1964!

The purpose of this site is to facilitate communication between our classmates and friends about a range of topics including reunion plans, sharing memories, and getting reacquainted. A lot has happened since 1964 and we encourage you to share your stories with your classmates. We hope you will come back frequently to find information about your Farmer classmates. This site will be updated periodically with new information as we get it.

The WRHS 1964, PO Box has been closed. For future snail mail send complaints to Will Hardesty, 12420 W. Ellsworth, Lakewood, CO 80234 (he ignores complaints as well as anyone) or Ed Church, 640 11th St. Golden, CO 80401 (he prefers money). Communication is best by email: wrhs1964@gmail.com


This is your invitation to attend the celebration of the 55th anniversary of when we graduated from WRHS.

 Here’s the schedule:

Friday, August 9—“Re-meet and greet” at Clancy’s Irish Pub.  5:00 PM.  It is now located on the south side of West 38th Avenue at Reed Street.  There is a big back room, and that’s where we will rendezvous.  We will have several tables at the back of the room where we can renew long-time friendships.  It will be a “pay-as-you-go” situation, so you can have whatever you want to drink and/or eat.”

Saturday, August 10— Wheat Ridge Carnation Festival Parade on West 38th Avenue.  It starts at 10:00 AM.  Gather a group of friends and go watch.  Tip:  Bring your own lawn chairs and sit in the shade if it is a hot morning.  The 50th Annual Carnation Festival continues all day and well into the evening.  It is being held at Anderson Park, which is located essentially at West 44th Avenue, and Field Street.

Saturday, August 10—10:30 until 2:30.  Meet at the Arbor House at 14600 West 32nd Avenue (on the south side of 32nd west of Eldridge and the Applewood golf course).  There will be a buffet lunch with all the necessary makings for sandwiches with a salad option and condiments.  Beer and wine will be provided by the reunion.

Sunday, August 11—A do-it-yourself day.  No organized reunion activity.  A chance to go to brunch with some long-time friends—or for a drive into the mountains—or for a visit to Boulder to see how much CU has changed since you were there (or to see if being there refreshes any memories of those smoky days of yesteryear during the ‘60s).

 The cost is $30.00 per person for the Saturday buffet, for reservations made and fees paid on or prior to July 12.  After that date, the cost increases to $40.00 per person.

 

Additional added attraction:  The annual WRHS Classes of the ‘60s picnic will be August 3 at Anderson Park.  If you’re coming in from out of town, consider being here a week in order to go to the picnic and then to the reunion.

As a part of the picnic the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) or STEAM, which adds Art were at the picnic. Six students and 2 teachers had there hydrogen powered car with them, that won 2nd Place at a competition in Detroit. We will be getting everyone information about helping them to you soon. This is a program that attracts students to WRHS, similar to the Baccalaureate program at Lakewood. 

Sad to report that Lynn Piddock Sowder and Lou Beth Casselman Sunblade passed away recently
