It's hard to believe it's been 30 years (and when we look in the mirror we might like to forget), but alas another milestone anniversary is upon us this year.
The committee wants to thank all who attended our gala event at the Tuscany Falls Country Club at PebbleCreek in October to help make it such a memorable moment in time. We had 49 total ticket sales, with 31 alumni in attendance, 44 including guests.
The event began with a free-flowing champagne fountain welcome reception where everyone was able to meet, greet and get reacquainted over pink moscato or drinks from the bar and appetizers such as Swedish meatball skewers, white cheddar-stuffed mushrooms & shrimp cocktail.
Later it was on to the dining room for an amazing all-you-can-eat Italian dinner buffet that included caesar salad, garlic bread sticks, linguini pasta, chicken parmesan and four-cheese lasagna with a choice of either marinara or alfredo sauces, as well as balsamic roasted vegetables and scrumptious creme-filled chocolate-drizzled cannolis for dessert.
Guests enjoyed a wide selection of both DJ music and karaoke that they could electronically request via their smart devices. The best part of course was catching up with old friends and reminiscing together!

Well, lets see,before high school ended I enlisted into the Army, specifically the Army Paratroopers Division (82nd Airborne )
So in August of 1986 Off I went to Ft.Benning, Ga. I specifically wanted to go out of the United states to serve.I figured America was my home and it is where I was going to live my life in the end so why not travel to other parts of the world while I have the chance.
Anyway the Army sent me to the country of Panama.There I lived for 2yrs. It was a blast.I'll probably never experience anything like it ever again.In the beginning America was fighting covertly the bolivian not the columbian drug wars.I got to panama just after that.As you'll see the Lord up above was watching out for me.So I dodged that bullet.Next as all you might know soon came the panama invasion.
The Army did a lot of info gathering prior to the invasion some with my unit some with others.Once again the Lord took me out of danger, for my time in panama was up and I was to report States Side to Ft. Bragg, NC just prior to the invasion.I'm glad I left early because I had made a lot of friends there with the Panamanian people,for it wasn't the people that didn't want us there it was the Govt of Panama in which America had conflict with. Anyway it all was very Political to say the least, as wars in the current times are.
So you would think two close calls huh?
Well,I got out in August of 1990 mainly because the Army at the time had put a freeze on transfers to Italy which I really wanted to go to.So I got out........then came "Desert Storm" the invasion by Iraq. You guessed it, the Army called me back into service.Once again I was spared. For the war ended so fast that first time that by the time, maybe a week before I was suppose to be sent over there, the orders to go were changed.
I came back to the States resumed my life got married had a beautiful son, got divorced,( learned a lot) now living in california working and enjoying the beach.
