Looking forward to the 75th Birthday Party

Dean Theos, Ralph Sadlon, and I attended the first round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open golf tournament this past Thursday 2/2/17  As you might guess, our conversation turned to the "Turning 75 Party" in September.  So we thought we'd send you the attached photo to document the golf-friendly weather we're enjoying in Arizona in February.  Unfortunately, Tom Christiansen and Rusty Gladyes weren't able to join us on Thursday to make a more complete picture.

*********************
****Note from Sam Rogers*****
He just let me know he booked with the old Marriot now called "Racine Architect Hotel & Conference Center through Hotwire.com for 69.95 + lots of tax
they charged him 600.41 for 7 nights. 
Dont know how long that will last.  
12/13/16 update

FYI: Suzie Bown's husband did get the Marriot (old name) for $69.00 via Hotwire.You can put your name on their website and when the price goes down to $69. you will get a notice from them.

Richard 'Dick' Polzin died Tuesday 1-3-2017

 

RACINE — Former Racine Police Chief Richard “Dick” Polzin, a pioneer in community policing, has died.  He died Tuesday night from a heart attack, Racine County Medical Examiner Michael Payne confirmed Wednesday morning.
Polzin is credited with beginning the community policing model and community policing houses in Racine, a model that was considered “bold” at the time, said Payne, who worked under Polzin.
His death is a “tragic loss for the community…just devastating,” Payne said.

Polzin leaves behind a legacy for the community, both through the COP houses and his family, including three sons who went into public service in Racine — two on the police department and one with the fire department.

“They are a family that has given nothing but community service,” Payne said.

Our 55th Park High Reunion 2015
55th Reunion Booklet Cover by Roger Nunet
The whole reunion committee loves it.
Thank you Roger!

******************
Note from Lynn Bratley:
I am still basking in the warm glow of our great reunion weekend. It was above and beyond. The committee worked so hard to make it all go smoothly.  I will take the poll, but just want you to know that I would love to be there and it doesn't matter at all if it's connected to the sidewalk party - Racine has so many good places to re-visit - I could enjoy being back for a week and not do and see everything I'd like to.
Dear Class of 1960 - Thanks for a wonderful 55th reunion - I'm already looking forward to the next one!  I  lived in the Boston area since 1965.  I always thought I'd move back to Wisconsin one day, but as you know, one thing leads to another and another, and for me, two daughters, three grandchildren, an ex and a great new marriage adding two more grandkids has kept me happily on the east coast. I started a non-profit company in 1984 to teach people about addiction prevention through theater. The actors who tour with the plays are all young people in long-term recovery.  I am still there as Founder and Artistic Director, and thought you would like to see what I've been doing for the past 31 years. We are the Improbable Players, and the website is www.improbableplayers.org
**********************************
Note from Becky Fanning Sohr:
 
Thanks for the email. I'm sure that I missed a really good time! The booklet filled me in on what is going on with many of our old group...and it is getting to be an old group....but we are still here!! Ron and I have been living in Nashville since 1980 and our four sons and their families are mostly all here...14 grandchildren ...one grandson in Virginia and a granddaughter who just moved to San Francisco..the rest here or in university somewhere. Ron still has an uncle in Racine and a few cousins nearby, but we haven't been back to Wisconsin in a while and they usually come here to visit. I do have a granddaughter that wants to visit at the University of Wisconsin so that may bring us back!   A 75th birthday party sounds fun...if we can all remember to show up!...can't believe we're all that old! Time does fly and things do change! Greetings to everyone from me!  Becky
************************
9-29-15 from Tom Peterson:
Thank you so much for sending me the reunion picture, which I think is the 20th, the one and only one I attended.  Looking at these pictures sure does bring back memories.  One is after all these years, instead of losing some hair and gaining a few pounds, why couldn't the opposite happen?  Give my best wishes to all my classmates and maybe I can make the 60th.  Moved to Texas in 1966 with a job transfer with a Racine Company & have never had any regrets.  I still have 2 sisters in Racine.  You could always keep up with me by contacting Mary Nielsen.    Thanks again, Tom.

Russ went to McKinley and Park, but left in his Senior year
for Beloit where he graduated from. 
Thanks, Karen, for your generous invitation to attend the September reunion. I attended McKinley. At your suggestion, I looked over the Washington Park website and saw many names and faces that I remember. I won’t be able to attend the reunion, but very much appreciate your contacting me because it has motivated me to thoughtfully reflect back upon a crucially-formative period of my life...Russ

So glad that you are working to keep our class connected. I so wish that i could join you all at this reunion. I have great memories of my classmates from Winslow to Franklin to WPHS. We have spent the summer in Maine. It just so happened that my daughter's husband got a great job in Portland, moving from DC after 12 years. Then my daughter got a fantastic job also based in Portland. So here we are 90 miles away living the summer on an island and they need help getting settled. Wife Susan and I just returned from a week long sailing trip. Life ain't so bad. Say hello to my classmates.

John Williams

A Good Idea!
Bill Horvath doesn't have email.  His daughter, Jennifer, sent me her email address so Bill will receive all the info we send out through Broadcast Email.  We realize that many classmates do not have email. It would be so great if other classmates (who don't do computers) would have their children let us email them.
There are only a few Broadcast Emails sent out for a reunion, notification of an upcoming reunion (so you know the date), information about the reunion events and a reminder to sign up. 
No email addresses are given out to anyone.  It is the easiest way for the committee to communicate with you  versus snail mail.
The Welcome page serves as a bullentin board of what is going on as it is the first place the website opens to.

Park High School, early photo.  Opened in 1928, replacing the old Racine High School.  It was built larger than Horlick, which opened in the same year, to accommodate larger population growth on the South and West side of Racine at the time.

Much of the history and memorabilia from Racine High School were moved to Park.  Joan of Arc (donated by the Racine HS Class of 1904), "The Beacon" school newspaper, and the yearbook, "Kipikawi" (Native American name for the Root River) all transfered to Park from Racine HS, the first public school in Wisconsin, 1852.  The "Panther" mascot was named by the class of 1949 after an American Indian mound that was thought to be in the shape of a panther.

Joan of Arc in the library to protect her.
