If you are a newcomer WELCOME!!!

For those who were able to attend and for those who could not make it, the LHS Class of ‘70 45th Re-union, was another GREAT success. We had 36 classmates plus 16 Guests attend.
The Riverboat Discovery II provided an enjoyable experience. Our Captain for the evening was Ken Persinger (Classmate Mike Persingers brother!!).
Paul Vandermeer, our esteemed Class President, flew up from Tennessee to join us. He helped check-in Classmates at the “door”!!
We had folks from Fairbanks, North Pole, Delta, Talkeetna, Anchorage, Tennessee, Washington, California and one Classmate came all the way from Argentina which was obviously the most traveled attendee.
Jerry Cleworth brought a Collection of Tim Ames (deceased) Art/reprints & cards for us to choose what we wanted to take home. So awesome to feel “in touch” with Tim.
Richard Tilly made an announcement about 3/4 of the way thru the Cruise, that it had cost everyone $60.00 each to go down river, but now to go back up river it was going to run $100.00 per couple (to go into the Scholarship Fund) & that the Riverboat wasn’t moving until the Fund Container started getting filled. Captain Ken turned the Riverboat around and some of us realized that we weren’t moving!!! Captain Ken made an announcement that he hadn’t gotten word from Richard that we could move!!! We were “held hostage”!!
We raised over $1,000.00 to help bolster the LHS Alumni Fund our class put together 15 years ago for Scholarships for young kids who worked hard, got through a tough home life, didn’t have the top grades but stayed in school. If anyone wants to contribute more for the Alumni Fund, (it needs further donations), contact Beth.
When the Riverboat had docked, most of us didn’t want to leave . . . . they had to flash the lights at us!!!! Everyone had a good time. So we are challenging everyone to stay healthy, stay in touch, work on that retirement plan, and plan on attending our 50th in 2020!! Stay tuned as I’ve heard it could be AWESOME!!
If anybody has any further new contacts and addresses for anyone in our class, please forward that on to Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org or 907-451-7520.
Also, besides this page, we have a Facebook Page:

We would like to hear from you. Post your messages here.
I married my high school sweetheart, Butch Hudson (class of '69), in 1972. We had a daughter, Samantha, and lived out near Livengood. In January, 1977 he was diagnosed with adrenal cancer and died that month.
I met Steve Smith (class of '72)while passing through the Fairbanks Airport. He was with Alaska Airlines and looked real nice in his 3-piece suit.....=) ANYway, we married and had 3 children. We bounced around to Anchorage, Kodiak and then back to Anchorage and have been here permanently since 1984. Samantha is planning on having a little one in the next year or so (tik-tok!); Nicholas has 2 children, Elle and Ethan; Erin has one child, Caleb; and Jeff has 2 girls, Taylen and Brynlee. We are very blessed to live here in the same area.
Steve worked in the airline industry for almost 30 years. He now travels around the state for a company out of Utah as a sales rep.
We'll probably live here forever after. I want to live somewhere warmer all year long, but then all the kids would have to move, too!
We probably won't make the reunion. Getting on this website, however, is almost as good. It's been wonderful "seeing" everyone again; and being in the privacy of my own home I can think on the many who have passed.
This is a great site. You all have fun this summer. =}
