Sorry, a few folks had already left before we remembered the group photo Saturday at the modernized Veterans Building ... and a few others only attended Friday night activiries -- those I recall missing the photo were: Jerri Hanten, Sharon (Floyd) Shaw, Steve Williams, and Charles Tedder. And a few classmates from adjoining years (especially 1968 & 1970) also shared in the visiting and remembering of the "good 'ole days", along with teachers Phyliss Ryal and Howard Ray.

Jess Boyd (& wife Billie) married longest (48 years) for those present.
Where we used to play baseball (L-R): Harrison, Long, Burwell (70), Lentz (70), Holman, Middleton, Cribbett, R. Harrold, Ashby, W. Harrold, Troglin, Sheehan, Williams and Hanten
Don Witten (& wife Sheryl) are regular partipants in Collinsville parades & Hogs 'N' Hot Rods. This photo from the 2019 Homecoming Parade which had several other CHS 1969 spectators Thursday evening.

"Elvis" was in the building to serenade the Ladies Saturday evening.
Paul Harrison (& his wife Donna) also participated in the 2019 Homecoming Parade.

Far too many of our former classmates are now deceased ... those honored in this partial display include: Don Austin, Billy Barrett, Terri Black, Tom Blunt, Tony Dotson, Mike Heaton, Raymond Heckencamp, Gary Howard, John McDoulett, Darrell Peay, Tabitha Combs, and Bobby Tanner.


About a week after the reunion we learned of the additional death of Steve Fulton.

More deceased classmates (includes duplicates above and below) -- Tom Blunt, Jill Loveless, Raymond Heckencamp, Gary Howard, Phil Howland, Wayne Jones, Darrell Peay, Tabitha Combs, Bobby Tanner, and Donna Thomason

More deceased classmates (includes duplicates above) -- Jill Loveless, Joyce Loewen, Verda Crocker, Benny Donahou, Phil Howland, Wayne Jones, Earl King, Joyce McCullough, Terry Dotson, Donna Thomason, Eddie Wilson, and Eddie Wimbish.

And potentially others we are unaware of?

Can’t wait to see everyone at the game and Silver Dollar this Friday night,
the Band will start around 10:30pm at the Silver Dollar Cafe.
A few reminders, homecoming parade is on Thursday evening and will begin at 6:30pm. Friday evening the homecoming coronation starts at 6pm.
Parking is always crazy so make sure to arrive early. No plans were made for Saturday night since it was such short notice but hopefully we can get our act together and have a huge get together for our 30th. Love to you all!!!??
