Yes, Sacred Heart is included. Letters should be going out within the next couple of weeks from all schools and classes. If any of you do not receive a letter please contact me at 234-6133. We have had a great response so far. The dates are June 13, 14 and 15th of 2008. Still over a year away, but we want plenty of time to contact everyone.

Wow - I am glad to see that there has been some response to the All 70's site. We just had a meeting tonight and had a real good turn out. Each class is working on gathering their addresses and HOPEFULLY the first letter goes out by the end of March at the latest. Finding everyone is tough. I am from the class of 1977 and we have quite a few that we are still looking for. If you have any addresses you can email them to me by clicking on my name. The All 70's Reunion will receive mail at P.O. Box 414, Miles City, MT 59301 if you want to mail them to the committee. Any help would be appreciated. Don't forget to put your married and maiden names and the year you graduated. Keep in touch and we will keep you posted.

Such a great idea. I had a 30 year reunion this past summer in Miles City, and it was nothing but great fun. But I know it would be even better with all the classes that surrounded mine. (Class of 76 here) I live in Bozeman, and am more than happy to help find people that may be in this area. I know of more than a few already. Let me know if I can be of any help.
How about a golf tournament? A 2 day scramble maybe. The teams that got an early tee time on day 1, get the late times on day 2, just to attempt to keep weather out of the equation. Each team must be comprised of people from the same class. More than one team from each class allowed of course. We should be able to fill the country club for a day, and the bragging rights would be serious fun. Lots of the attendees are going to play golf anyway, so we may as well make it an event.

Matt: Sounds like an idea. I will bring it up to the committee at our next meeting. I know there are alot of us who golf, but we need to include the spouses. I have a husband who would be all down in the mouth if he couldn't play along!!!!!!! Sure hope you can make it, it should be a great time. (Bobbi, Class of 74)

God willing, I'll be there. I love seeing old friends and foes and catching up on the last zillion years. I have been to all of my reunions to date and want to encourage everyone to attend, they are a good time. We have all out lived the competitions and BS, and now it's just time to reminisce, have fun, and see you has the best lies.

Hal old buddy it is time we saw your smiling face at one of the reunions, It's been too long. I remember your cat in "72" and how goofy he/she acted after getting into your stash. Oops did I say too much, oh well! I famous for that.

>> Hal old buddy it is time we saw your smiling face at one of the reunions, It's been too long.

Yeah, it's been a while. I was in town for 72's twentieth, But I got side tracked and didn't make it to any of the functions except registration and the Sunday picnic.

Susan and I are giving serious thought to making it to this one. But right now, it's too far down the road to make a firm commitment - this time next year we'll be in a better position to make plans.

As for telling stories about one another, I guess that's one the function's of a reunion It seems likely that I could come up with a few about the dashing young man who owned a postal van. . .
= = = = = = = = = =

Again, if there's anything I can do to help with the organization chores from a distance, let me know

Sounds like an interesting story Hal.

I could tell about replacing the statute of Jesus in the hall of SHHS with the skeleton from the biology lab. To quote Sister Kathleen... "Oh my, someone has stolen Jesus."

Posted by Mary McClarty (+77) 15 years ago
I remember that!! Too funny. It was probably supressed by memories of Sister Kathleen taking away my early out honor's hours,hmmm? No comment, Pete!!

Can we have a forum just for information? I don't always have time to read everything when people are just reminiscing. So a forum just for info, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Posted by Rhonda (+21) 15 years ago
The goal of the All 70's Committee is that each class have their first letter mailed out to their classmates by the end of March. The hard work is finding addresses for everyone. My class is sending a list of the missing in our first letter. I guess if you do not get a letter by the end of March or first part of April - we don't have your address.

All corespondence regarding the All 70's Reunion can be mailed to:
P.O. Box 414, Miles City, MT 59301. Please indicated what class you are from so your correspondence gets to the right person.

The All 70's Reunion is planned for June 13-15, 2008. It should be a great time.

Any chance of getting names and emails for those in charge of each class? It would be good to post the names of the missing too as people other than in that specific class may have the addresses.

Posted by Bobbi (+95) 15 years ago
I have names and phone numbers of each class, but not too many e-mails. I will get those and either Rhonda or I will get them listed on this web site. Bobbi

Posted by Kacey (+3155) 15 years ago
Any info for those who haven't received letters? Do you have a listing of those "missing" that perhaps others can help find?

Did you have your meeting? Any updates?

Had our meeting. Went through some of the letters that have been returned as not deliverable and have taken care of some of those. We have Bucky Beaver and the Ground Grippers confirmed as our Saturday night band. They will play 70's music. Some classes still do not have their letters out. Our next meeting will be June 18, at the Miles City Club (old star building).

Hi. I am Nancy (Magnuson) Tennant (1979) and would love to register AND help out with the reunion! I live in Gillette, so could help from afar if there is anything I can do.

I tried to register online, but the form would not come up - any suggestions?

Looking forward to it!

Class of 79: Your letters are on the way. Diane Eckart Gordon (71) and myself (74) are trying to get them out. Sorry for the delay, your committee fell on some hard times so we are trying to help out. I hope we will have correct addresses for all of you. If you do not receive a letter by next week, please let me know. I will see that you get one. Thanks, Bobbi

Hi There I saw that Esther Hurlburt and Donna Kingsley left messages somewhere in these notes. I am planning on making it. Richard Cook (my husband) and Bruce Benti (his cousin; who is living with us) are all excited about the price of gold and will probably be goldmining at mines we have up at Mt. McKinley. But my son, Berick, has said that he will come with me. I think we will fly into Denver and drive up. Maybe my sister, DeEtta will come with us. She is not a 70's though. Anyhow it will be exciting to see everyone. I've missed the last few.

Hello from Nancy Torgrimson Gerch to my fellow classmates from 1974! I still live in Longmont Colorado. I am looking forward to coming back to Miles City for the reunion. We (my husband, son and I have not been back for 7 years or so (except for my Aunt Avis Mitchell's funeral). The last reunion I attended was our ?? 20th. Hard to believe how much time has passed since then. Is there anything planned for families? Just wondering if my husband and 12 year old son would enjoy this, or if I would probably have more fun coming alone

Nancy and Belinda: I can't wait to see you guys. I know we will all have a great time. Our 30 year was a great time. Our class sure is a fun bunch of people. See you in June.

Class of 76: I have requested a list of your classmates so the 70's committee can help you get your letters out. No one has brought me anything. Can't do it unless we have a list.....anyone out there with a list or some idea how to get one??????? Not much time left..

When I saw Nancy Tennant -- I thought of you Nancy Torgrimson and wondered whether you would come or not. Bobbi thanks for the mailer with the listing of he people that might be coming. I thought that I read earlier that Tracy Walters was in Deer Lodge but the mailer said Billings? I see Bovee is planning on coming and Lucas too, wow, should be interesting. This is Getting EXCITING!!!

Hello Belinda and all others!

Looks like I am coming alone. My son has a Boy Scout summer camp that ends on Saturday June 14th, so my husband needs to go pick him up. Just figures, huh!! I'm still excited and looking forward to visiting with everyone. Hope the name tags are plenty big so we don't need our readers to figure out who everyone is

Well, the pony express finally showed up with my letter. The rider must have been savaged by a bunch of wild women in Olive. Speaking of "olive" I noticed it wasn't on the list of motels where one might stay... just saying

At the time I made up the list I was told that they were remodeling all the rooms and didn't know if they would have any available by that time. But I have since learned that they do have rooms, don't know if they are remodeled or not. I have been so busy with other things about the reunion I haven't had time to check with them and see. I will try to get that information for you.

Nancy -- Alone or not at least you are coming!! I loved your comment about peepers -- oh that I could shed mine altho I did wear contacts for a time and that was wonderful.

I am hoping my son will be traveling with me. At 23, things can change at the drop of a dime though.

This IS exciting!

Good for you all...I missed the All 1960s reunion several years ago because I was teaching summer school at Rice University...missed a great reunion ...and even seeing my brother who came in from Hawaii and who I had not seen for about 4 yours. Enjoy the time together. It goes by awful fast.

Try to make the all 1970s reunion.
