Thanksgiving Day

Hello, Classmates!

It’s been nearly 8 months since I updated our homepage, so I’d like to reach out again with a brief message. 

Back in March, we were all just beginning to realize the scope and magnitude of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the changes to our lives it would make.  Thankfully, to my knowledge, we have not lost any classmates to the virus.  This reassures me that we are staying home for the most part, keeping ourselves and others safe.  It’s certainly been no fun, but we will make it through this difficult challenge.  Hope is on the horizon for 2021, with new vaccines in the pipeline and a better understanding of how to slow the spread.

On this Thanksgiving I am grateful our Class of 1969 got to have our 50-Year Reunion last fall, before this all hit.  My wish for all of you is a Happy Thanksgiving and a warm, wonderful Holiday Season.

                     Keep staying safe and well!

What a weekend!  Smiling faces everywhere from start to finish! 
Over 150 classmates -- and their guests, bringing the number to around 200 -- attended and had a great time, from Friday morning's golf tourney at Shawnee Country Club, to the Meet & Greet hosted by Dale & Maggie Warren, to the Halls of Troy Saturday morning, then our Main Event party at the Ramada... and last but not least, a fine jam session at Snyder's Cabin in Gage Park on Sunday.
Photos are now posted in the Class Reunions Gallery!  Click on "Class Reunions" on the left menu bar.

Many thanks to the planning team and everyone who attended.  By popular demand, plans for future reunions will be in the works!

At our Main Event Party Saturday night, 1969 Student Congress President Bruce Honeyman shared some reflections with classmates.  Click here to read his remarks
Thanks, Bruce, for your thoughtful insights.

Many thanks to Donna Dale Wyckoff for creating and donating the '69 sunflower emblem coasters for our reunion!

HELP US FIND OUR "MISSING" CLASSMATES!  While we have a pretty good handle on most of our classmates' whereabouts and contact information, a number of them are currently "missing" -- we do not have a valid mailing address (or phone number, or email) for them in our records.  You may be able to help!  Please click on the "Missing Classmates" link on the left menu (5th link from the top) and look over those names.  If you are in touch with any of these classmates, or know their current mailing address, phone number, or email, please contact Jenith Paris Hoover, 785-230-3135, or Mark Neis, 785-354-1471,

Remember, this website is  all ours to help us get & stay in touch, catch up on each other's lives (by sharing photos and information), and enjoy many other cool features. You can create your Profile and add photos, then IM and chat with other registered classmates, submit class and reunion photos or reminiscences, and manage your notifications. Then spread the word to other members of the Class of '69 and see how many Classmate Profiles we can get on our website!  PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR PROFILE IS UP-TO-DATE!
