Event Announcement!

50th Reunion Photo Album

Photos that I have received for the reunion can now be viewed, warts and all, by clicking on the link below. I have made a separate album for each event. FOR BEST VIEWING, CLICK ON "SLIDESHOW".

It's been fun(?) trying to identify everyone in the pictures. If I have identified you incorrectly, please forgive me......and let me know!

One nice thing about the Picasa photo viewer is that you can download any individual photo and save it for yourself, or send it to a friend. If you need help doing this, let me know!

If you have photos, please send them to me and I will add them to the web album.

50th Reunion Sunday Brunch Speeches

We are getting copies of the speeches from Barbara Carlson, Bill Kimber, Chuck Reite, and Barbara Blanch that were made at the Sunday Brunch. They were very moving speeches about this stage of our lives and those that were not able to attend the brunch will like to read them…....even those that DID attend! As I get them I will post excerpts of them in the “Class News” section below.

Today's Featured Biography


Sherry Strong Rybak

I attended the University of Minnesota for 2 years and then decided to fly the friendly skies for a short while. Then moved on to merchandising for a couple of years and finally landed at KMSP TV, where I found a home for the next 8 years.
I was married in 1968 and had 2 children, Bob in 1972 and Liz in 1973. Bob is single, lives in Boulder Co. and is a respiratory therapist at St Joseph's hospital in Denver. Liz is married to Chris Dettling and has 2 adorable daughters, Ellen 6 and Stella 4, (adopted from China). She is a
Speech Therapist at Southwest High School in Minneapolis. We are delighted to have these 2 grandchildren living so close to us.
I was a stay at home wife & mother for many years,involved in many school and church activities. My marriage ended in the 80's and I married again in 1988 to Alan Rybak.
We have enjoyed life together for the past 22 years. I have a step-son John, married to Corinne Nakamura and a new granddaughater, Amrita, 2 months old. John is a student of Oriental Medicine in Portland, Oregon.
Alan and I have been involved in Real Estate for the past 15 years. We are now semi-retired, but still keep up with the ever changing world of real estate. We also own and manage several rental properties. We found out that retirement can be very busy.
We enjoy Minnesota summers and warm weather winter vacations. 50 years seems like a long time looking forward, but oh so fast looking back!
