I’m pretty sure that I never really thought what it would be like 50 years after high school. But, here we are. As for me, I am still married to my husband Jim (Class of 1965). We celebrated 48 years of marriage this past June. Pretty sure I never really thought about what 50 years of marriage would be like either but that seems to be around the corner, as well. Our family is really grown. Our 3 children are all in their mid-40s and their 8 children are no longer small. Now, we really get to see how they all turn out! Our oldest granddaughter is 24 and is living in Hoboken and working in NYC. It was such a thrill when she graduated college with honors and went out on her own in the world. The next granddaughter is 20 and a Junior in college. One grandson is now entering college and 3 more grandsons are in high school. That leaves the two youngest girls, one is in 8th grade and the other entering Middle School for 6th. So, no more cute little kiddie functions here. It’s all serious business now! We still have our family business and we are still working, although our son has been taking over more and more. It is looking like retirement is closer than ever. We are more than ready for that one. (Last update 8/24/18) 40th & 50th Reunion attendee.

I’ve lived in CT the last 20 years with my wife Carol. Prior to CT we spent most of our time in Los Angeles. Carol and I have been together 31 years and have two kids. My son is 30, graduated from Cornell and has decided to go to law school in San Diego. My daughter is 27, married, graduated from Penn State and works for a PR firm in Wash. DC. I’ve been in the toy industry 26 years currently working for Hasbro as VP Customer Business Mgt. I promise there will be no lead in this bio! We have been students of A Course In Miracles for 23 years. We’re licensed foster parents. No kids right now because I am retiring next April and traveling across country in our RV. Then returning to our condo in Myrtle Beach. For closer look try Myspace search: carandgar (Last update 12/1/07)

I’ve been living in Texas now for ten years. I’m remarried to a retired pharmacist and I work at El Paso E&P in Houston as a Land Assistant. Our department leases blocks of land in the Gulf of Mexico for exploration and production and we also cover So. Louisiana. The work is interesting and my coworkers are great. Tom and I have a 35′ sailboat that he likes to race (pretty successfully), and I like to meet him for the parties – although I have been known to participate. We live in a townhouse on a marina right by our boat. It’s a fun lifestyle and our social life revolves around the yacht club, sailing and family. From my husband’s family, we have four grandsons and one newborn granddaughter – finally! My daughter, Tracy, lives in West Orange and recently married. My son, Chris, lives here in Houston and is unattached. I’ll try to make it to the reunion. I’ll have to study everyone’s pictures so I can semi-recognize all of you and you me. I enjoyed the tenth reunion but the 40th – how could that be?!?! (Last update 2008)

Since retiring from teaching elementary ESOL in Fairfax County, Virginia, I have enjoyed life on Capitol Hill. I talk with neighbors; walk to retail and museums; swim at the neighborhood pool; play with other people’s dogs; try out interesting recipes; bingewatch Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime; sing with the City Choir of Washington; and attend political demonstrations and events. I’m so happy with my day-to-day existence that I don’t have ambition to do more. I’m actually looking foward to feeling anxiety, dissatisfaction and boredom, which I have realized are great motivators to achievement. (Last update 1/14/18) 40th & 50th Reunion attendee.

Several years ago the music of Jimmer Glynn and Alan Rackin(deceased) was discovered by a someone in France that man ,now a good friend was the catalyst for our music being released on vinyl in 2014. Since then a second album was released in France and our Apple audition tape was just released in England. I am touched to now have fans of our music all over the world. I just wish Alan was still here to enjoy the recognition with me.(Last update 8/21/18) 40th Reunion attendee.

Grossman, Wynne
I’ve been a California girl ever since I visited Kenny Segall in the mid-70s and decided it was the place for me. I live on a couple of acres in Marin County, with deer, feral cats and an occasional bobcat. For many years I directed leadership development and community health programs for a hospital association, so I traveled around the country working with community coalitions and speaking at conferences. Now I run the statewide organization that advocates for community oral health in CA. I love hiking — Dolomites, Tahoe, Sedona — and going to health spas. How about a semi-reunion in CA?
