CLASS OF 60 WILDCATS AT THE PARK 2017
2017 - 10:00 am
Kirby Billingsley Hydro Park, East Wentachee, WA
We're doing it again! Another fun picnic at Kirby Billingsley Hydro Park down by the Columbia between our beloved East Wenatchee and beloved Rock Island haunts from the 1950s. The fun starts at 10AM and runs until 3PM, or whenever we all have to have our naps (whichever comes first). It's a "Bring Your Own Food & Drink" event with the Class of 60 providing utensils, paper plates, cups, and napkins. As you may recall from our picnic at Hydro Park last year, they wouldn't allow us "youngsters at heart" to have a BBQ fire. Gordy will check with the Chelan County PUD a couple weeks before our picnic to see if they will trust us to BBQ this time. Ha!!!!! If a BBQ is OK for our picnic Gordy will put out an email letting everyone know so they can bring BBQ food items if they want. Weren't we allowed to play with matches when we were at Eastmont High?
BRING YOUR 1960 EMO ECHO AND WE'LL READ WHAT WE WROTE TO EACH OTHER BACK AT OUR GRADUATION IN JUNE 1960. SHOULD BE FUN!!!!

I attended the East Wenatchee schools from K-12, then one year at Wenatchee Valley Community College and one year at University of Idaho (Moscow). Married Linda Campbell in 1963, divorced 1986. Linda and I had 4 children which produced 10 wonderful grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild. I started my career with the Forest Service in 1962 and retired in 1997 from the Naches Ranger District. In 1988 the love of my life became Bette Cooney. We have enjoyed traveling to places within the U.S. including Hawaii (favorite spot) and spent a month in Germany in 1992 and again 3 weeks in 2013 including Switzerland & France. We love the Oregon coast where we co-own a condo at Depoe Bay. Retirement years are proving to be the best! For the past 10 years I have worked for a local car dealership on a call-when-needed basis driving cars in WA, OR, ID and MT. We live in a lovely condominium community in Yakima. I serve on the Board of Directors and Bette produces a monthly newsletter and other duties as a volunteer. Bette has graphic design skills so she is frequently called upon for help.

Remembering When…we sat and talked,
Dreaming of days to come.
Walking the halls, cafeteria food,
And laughing until we were numb.
The fall football games, the roar of the crowd,
The beat of the Eastmont Wildcat Band,
The autumn air still takes me back to that time,
To where we’d meet up with friends as planned.
Remembering when we cruised Wenatchee Ave,
The Triple X, sneaking into the VueDale Drive-in.
Scratchy formal dresses, big hair, corsages,
Crew cuts, white bucks, homecoming with friends.
Those tender times were of gentler days,
That now seem to be of a different world.
The march of time has brought with it changes,
As new generations of lives have unfurled.
All of those memories are but a whisper now,
That will forever echo in my mind.
Now and then I find myself searching
For the faces of those friends who left us behind.
Most friends remain - but some have gone
And left for a final place of rest.
Gone from our sight yet with the memories of those,
We surely have been blessed.
Remembering When…we had not a care in the world,
And how time just seemed to stand still.
I think of you now with fond thoughts and precious memories,
And I know that I always will.
