If this post is repetitive, please excuse, since it appears I'm having internet connection problems.  Anyway, Yolanda, so glad to know you were a fellow Kenwick student.  The two teachers I especially remember were Ms. Shindlebauer (sp) for the 2nd grade, who taught us well how to write script, and Ms. Roberts for the 4th, who sent a group of us to "conservation camp" in the summer.  Ellen, thanks for remembering the Abraham Lincoln play in Mr. Weddle's class.  I now remember you in the play, as well as Doug Stephens, and what a big project it was for us that year.  I, too, remember Mr. Weddle fondly and with respect, the "active" students in our class, that long paddle with holes and flashbacks of it being put to use in the front of the room!  Yes, things have sure changed.  Well, today is the big day of our 50th reunion, and it is such a special day for memories by all of us!  It has all become so vivid to me since I joined the website.  Although I will not be there tonight in person (planning a visit to Lexington in a month or so), I will be there in thought and spirit from here in Phoenix and wish all who attend the very best of fun and comraderie and look forward to seeing the reunion pictures!

Yes, Holly...I remember we had a choice of Henry Clay or Lafayette.  I also remember your father advising us that he thought Lafayette the better school....so that's what we chose.  It was a good choice for me.  I had been at Cassidy since first grade and then Morton for all three years....

What a Fabulous 50th reunion!!!!  The Committee and volunteers did an awesome job over these past months to  make this the best ever GATHERING ....we had time for everything...catching up with old friends, fine dining, catching up with more old friends, dancing to the oldies, catching up with more old friends and a great group picture of everyone attending...photographer took two group pictures and combined them into one great photo!!!!  Now if someone would volunteer to label the people in the photo.(.first row left to right) would be great!!!  Certainly enjoyed the evening visiting with a record number of 64 graduates and look forward to the 55th and beyond...thanks again to all the people responsible.. for their extensive time, talent and dedication to making last night such a HUGE success...

My hat is off to the 50th reunion committee.  What a great reunion.  Margie and I had a wonderful time.  Margie was a little apprehensive of not knowing anyone which wasn't true.  She had a wonderful time and met some new people which is always good.  Thank you again for such tireless and hard work you should be proud of the results.  Thank You!  Robert & Margie Riggs

As others have said, this was a terrific event.  Between the afternoon event at 6th street and the evening reception and dinner dance, I feel like I was able to visit with more people than previous events.  Still, I think I missed a few and wish I could have spent more time with some I was able to chat with.  I look forward to the next one.  Thanks to all involved in the planning and execution.  Phil Marcum

The best ever!  How do they do it?  Wish I had been there.  Wait, maybe I was.  I know my wife was there, because she told me how wonderful everyone was to her. And what wonderful planning and organization.  Let's do it again next month.

There are no words to express how thankful all of us were for the committee's work.  It was obvious that months had gone into the planning.  Jim Ishmael, I wish I had recorded your prayer.  I've thought so many times about how our lives changed the day Kennedy was shot.  We were blessed to have grown up in the time before that tragic event.  You made me feel so blessed to have been a General with the best class Lafayette ever had.  Thank you again to those who planned our 50th and Jim Brinegar, you were there.  I saw you and your wife together several times.  I still haven't figured out though  how you ended up with such a beautiful wife!

Everyone has summed it up.Great! Like Nancy, this was my first reunion, so I can not really comment on weather this was the best one or not, but if the others were good, I would have to say this was probably the greatest. I really enjoyed myself. The committee did a tremendous job with this one. I would have loved to got up and danced more. I love to dance, but I would have to had an 8 pack of oxygen in the room, so I could keep up with Linda. She wore me out just watching her up there. I did have to make a trip to the car for another bottle of oxygen, about half way into the night, my fault, I should have brought a spare in with me. I hated to see the night end, I was having so much fun. I had some good conversation with a lot of great people. Love you all, for giving me a good time. I was really needing the break. Now that I am refreshed from seeing friends and my 3 beautiful sisters, it is back home. Again the time went by too fast. I would love to do this again.

Wish I knew how to transport a video from Facebook to our Website...I think listening to " MY OLD KENTUCKY HOME" would be appropriate right about now...wish I could hug everyone at the same time??

What a wonderful 50th reunion,  thanks to our reunion committee. They worked hard for all of us to have a great time. The problem was it was over too quickly and I didn't get to talk with everyone. I wish the people that are still in Lexington, or near by, could get together once a month or two months and have dinner and talk. I hope everyone has good health and back for the 55th reunion.  I wish we could go back to 1964 if only in our dreams. Life was easy then.

I think someone wanted people to put their email address on the message forum. I think that is a good idea. That way we only serve our own. Mine is b.miles@frontier.com. I would love to  hear from anyone and everyone. I had a lot of good conversation at the reunion. But it did not last long enough. 5 to 7 hours is not enough time to talk about the past 50 years. Did not even get to talk about family, kids, grandkids, greatgrandkids. If I am around for another 8 years or so, it will be great greatgrandkid, but I hope not. He needs to grow up a whole lot.

  Made it back and washing cloths and Sleeping for 11 hrs.   Time change it was great and I sure was blessed being able to see everyone and dance and eat and play golf well that is a gray area.  But it well worth the time to be their and Lexington, Ky has sure changed.  Got lost leaving the renuion , got lost going to Lousiville  but I found my way back.  The rain was a welcome sight since we don't much rain in Vegas.    But I found all the shopping centers  HA!

A Great Big THANK YOU!! to our terrific reunion committee. You always know how hard people work based on the success of the event. Based on the impressive success of our reunion, we have a dedicated, hard working, caring committee. I had a terrific time at the reunion: just not enough time to catch up with everyone. Was great to see you from a distance even if I did not get to chat with you this year...next time.
By the way, for those of you who went to Big Picadome, do you remember the hollow tree in the southeast corner of the play yard. The hollow part faced away from the yard toward the street. I loved hiding in the hollow of that tree: hidden from everyone. So fun!

Thank you to the reunion committee, and all the volunteers, who worked so hard to make this reunion a success. It was truly lovely, so well done, and such a great time for everyone. I know that you worked on this for months, and it was certainly worth it for all of us who attended. We really appreciate all you did. Thank you so much!!

I am still recalling a wonderful weekend with our class. Again thank you committee and volunteers for planning the grand reunion of 2014. Now back in the swing of things in NY and almost ready for fall. My email is cltboyer4@gmail.com. See you all in 5 years.

Belatedly I want to say another thanks to the  reunion committee for the great time we had, and that's only possible with much time, work and organization behind the scenes.  It was terrific!  Jim and I made it to part of the Friday events, and planned on all Saturday's, but like Jim McDaniel life intervened on Saturday.  Was so great to get to talk with the ones we did.  Also like the idea of the Lexington alums getting together more frequently for lunch or dinner and more talk?  If you like the idea, too, shoot an email, and we can try to do something every so many months.  eveseymour@gmail.com  It was great seeing the ones we got to, andso much fun finding out what all you have been doing.  Great to be part of such a truly wonderful group!
