Welcome to your class of 1961 web page, and our new site, last updated on August 22, 2017. This page is best viewed using Mozilla Firefox. We have moved to a new server, and a more appropriate web address, <>.

Not getting the Newsletter? Contact Donna [from panel on the left] to sign up. Keep up on activities and news about classmates and items of interest. The cost is only $5/year. Newsletters come come out in April and October. Our latest newsletters are most voluminous in the 50 edition history - lots of information and nostalgia.

In the "Nostalgia" section, we've added some photos of old Lansing iconic pictures under the sub-title of "Landmarks in the day." I will be adding to this area going forward. Take a quick peek at it.

We have been informed of the deaths of classmates Christine Norman Simmons, Bob Kellogg, Jeanne Sawyer and Dick Karkau. Christine last November, Bob earlier this year, Jeannne in early March, and Dick on March 22nd. We also have just become aware that Vicki DeMiller on May 24th and Elmer Speer at the end of August. Val Simmons, who did not grauate with our class, but orginally was part of it, passed away in Early August. Our thoughts go out to the familes of our former classmates.

We have also become aware of the death of Margaret Tangenberg on November 12, 2013 at age 80 in Washington DC. Many of us had her for English at the old Everett while in seventh grade.

August, 2017 - 56th reunion:

On August 5th, we had a nice get-together at Buddies in Holt. Thirty-five people attended the event including Jerry Mizger, a first time attendee at any reunion. I guess Donna had been lobbying for him to attend a reunion for years and he finally took the bait. He admitted that she kind of wore him down and decided to just do it.

If you missed this one, we'll be having another next summer. The event will be in late July or early August, The date will be decided with plenty of time to add it to your calendar. Please consider coming. It will be informal and take place in the Lansing area. Until further notice, this will be our format from here onward. Yes, we have pictures. I have the first & second page of the 56th posted and am working on editing/posting about 2-3 more pages. You can access the first batch on the left panel under contents (Reunion Pictures) and selecting "56th." The rest will arrive in about 10 days or so.

On the left panel, You can also select links to the content pages. "Archives" are 1961 yearbook photos, teacher photos, and other photos of general interest. "E-mail addresses" are listed for those who have given us permission. "Juke Box" is a music player that has the top songs from every year during the 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond including some original video - plus some other neat stuff. This replaces another juke box that was getting some copyright issues. "Nostalgia" is an area to rekindle old memories; we currently have a story about JD's and links to some old Lansing landmarks. "News" is about some things going on relating to our classmates, and sadly some obituary notices. Use the "Contact Us" link to share information or ask questions. Check it out.

Have a great summer & stay well.
