Comments and Gateway Regional Class of 1970

This will be a brief post. I'm writing to ask those of you who read the blog, who have thoughts and comments and memories to post them as comments. It will help expand the world of Wenonah into a larger place.
Also, just a brief note, my friends Suzy Parker, Barb Conway and her boyfriend Charlie, Dottie Chattin and her husband, Greg & Joyce Jones, Chris and Stephanie DeHart, Gary and Debbie Lundquist/Przywara, and Mitch and Terri Chambers have been conspiring to put together a reunion for us knuckleheads. Anyone from the Class of 70 or who knows folks from the Class of 70 please write me with contact info, etc. We're shooting for a gathering in July of 2008, tenatively the 5th. Please help...these people are driving me nuts.

I was one of those people who never really belonged to any one circle or group or clique. I kind of floated through Gateway in my own world. I only came to life when I was given the opportunity to have an audience, whether it was a book report or some other type of stand up in front of the class and tell us what you know kind of thing. I was shocked when told I was to be a member of the National Honor Society. I forget who dared me to join the school newspaper, but I did in my senior year, and Jack and Gary and Bruce and I wrote what we thought was finally a paper to be proud of. The administration did not think so, and we had to change or resign. We resigned. I finally screwed up the courage to audition for the school play, The Mouse That Roared, and damned if I didn't get the lead. If enough people had dared me to do more, I may have been less of a loner. Anyone who remembers me and would like to give a shout, I'd like to hear from you.
