Everything about our 50 year reunion was terrific. Let's stay in touch...
2014 - 11:00 am
Mark your calendar for the third Saturday of AUGUST annually with a reminder one month ahead of time to meet with us at a local park.
The 2012 KICK OFF EVENT Friday night at Meadow Park Golf Club was a smashing success. Lots of our old classmates were there. We didn't get a chance to talk to several. The name tags helped tremendously in jogging the memories. We will post a few snapshots.
The Saturday morning picnic 8-18-12 was a grand success too.
The plan was to just hang out and have some low key fun on Saturday morning - Come and go as you please - Bring your own picnic food, chips, choice of salad, non-alcoholic drinks, etc. We had a boom box with old time music by the Wailers, and other old time rock and rollers. Year books from '59, '60, '61, & '62 were there.
50TH ANNIVERSARY CLASS OF 1962 REUNION. MAIN EVENT. 8-18-12
The MAIN EVENT was at the Tacoma Country Club Saturday night.
WOW! What can we say? This event was an absolute, overwhelming, success. Everything worked out just fine. The venue was superb. There were so many classmates there that it was literally standing room only at times. Piano music (oldies) playing, orderves brought to you on trays by servers, your choice of just about anything you wanted, David did a super job as master of ceremony, the food and desert was delicious.

Sunday Morning with some of our CP Faculty August 19, 2012
Meeting at the Tacoma Country and Golf Club.
John Halvorsen and Bruce Hubbard worked on the list of faculty that attended this event. We had about nine faculty and staff lined up for the brunch. Classmates doing the HOST job picked up their assigned faculty member if needed and brought them to the brunch, shadowed them at the event and delivered them back home afterwards if needed.
The planning committee received funds to pay the $20.00 for each of the attending Faculty members.
The list of faculty planning to attend the brunch is below:
Don Droettboom HOSTED by Dick Butcher
Carl T. Fynboe HOSTED by Bruce Hubbard

Post-Reunion Prayer Time Sunday, August 19, 2012 - 4:00 pm
At the Clover Park High School FLAGPOLE on Gravely Lk. Dr.
The thought came up that there may be classmates that would like to get together after the reunion and pray for our nation and for traveling mercy on our classmates as they head home for a change-up post-reunion event. There was an earlier discussion about doing something like this. We know most cannot make it and many will already be on the way home.
God hears prayer.
We did indeed spend a moment of silence at the Clover Park flagpole 4 pm 8-19-12 for our classmates that have passed away, prayed for safe travel for those that were traveling home from the reunion, prayed for some of our classmates that have health issues we know about, prayed for the CP2012 class as they start out in life, for the next graduating class of Warriors starting their last year this semester, and prayed for our nation. Amen.
It sure was good to see old friends again and even to establish new friendships with classmates that we didn't know that well before...
8/17/2013 CP62 Annual Picnic was great.
See the snapshots of some of the classmates attending the picnic this year at American Lake (by the old Sea Plane base which is not there anymore).

8/24/2012 We Want More Pictures
Larry only got about 75 pictures and they are all posted on this site via links to photobucket.com
If you know of anyone who has more pictures of the 50 year reunion, get them to upload

All of the committee work has been done by volunteers. All expenses thus far have been absorbed by classmates on the various committees. Several have given time and money for websites, meetings, and other events that were planned for the Class 50th Anniversary Reunion.
Several anonymous gifts were given to the Clover Park Class of 1962 50th Reunion Anniversary Planning Committee by classmates. These donations subsidized all of the events and venues as needed and made everything a lot more affordable for everyone.

We would like to hear from you. Post your messages here.
Was Correction Officer nearly 20yrs.
Also lay pastor of a small church in IA.
Moved to MO for family and still writing first book (Go With Him Two.)
You might not remember me. Didn't do much in school, not a "big name" haha
Looks like a lot is planned for our 50th reunion. I will not be able to get up there but would very much like to be in on the know,
so to speak. If anyone would remember me and care to email I would love that.
I have never been back to Tacoma since we graduated. We graduated on the 7th and I enlisted in USAF on 21st as a salute to the World's Fair(there were 21 of us) and we took the oath at the base of the Space Needle.
Remember the Fair was called Century 21----or something like that. I married the most beautiful girl in the world in 1970 so we are coming up on number 42. We have three kids and 10 grandkids. They are a great joy in our lives.
I retired almost 4 years ago and am loving it. I'm still working on my first book. titled Go With Him Two, living the Yielding life of a Believer.
I love writing down all the wonderful ideas Yeshua shares and then has me pass on..
