Dear Classreport Users: We are one of the premiere social networking websites dating back to 2003. We are a small, family owned and operated business with less than 15 staff but freely host over a million class websites. Classreport holds a special place in the hearts of our users: Bravos. We are funded solely through your voluntary contributions. Despite our small size we have the same costs as any other site: servers, security, software, and staff. So now we ask for your support. If everyone reading this gave $15, our fundraiser would be over in one day. If Classreport is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online and ad-free for another year. Thank you. Click here to chip in now.

Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Donald "Paul" Bergquist Jr.


After high school I attended the University of Minnesota and was a member of the Alpha Delta Phi Fraternity.
In 1963 I started my career with the Gillette Company in sales and marketing with products such as Right Guard deoderant, Foamy Shave Cream, etc.. My job took me to Chicago and Milwaukee as a sales territory.
I moved back to Minneapolis in 1977 with a transfer to the Papermate Pen division of the Gillette Company.
An opportunity to start my own independent brokerage organization came about in 1979 when I became a representative for Krazy Glue, Minnetonka Inc's line of Soft Soap and Ray Ban sunglasses.
As of today I still have my own sales organization, but am cutting back to spend more time with family, friends and doing some traveling.
I have three grown childresn all out on their own. My son is a veterinarian in Key West, Florida, my oldest daughter runs a heavy equipment operating training school in Escanaba, Michigan and my youngest daughter is an internal medicine doctor in Cincinnati, Ohio. She and her husband have blessed us with four grandchildren, ages 8, 6, 4 and 2.
My wife Chris and I have lived in the same home in Eden Prairie, Mn. for the past 32 years.
My love of cars still continues and I am very active in the local Mercedes-Benz Club, where I was president for 7 years and am now the events cooprdinator.
I started the German Carfest 15 years ago, an annual car show and picnic for all German cars. It is now the largest gathering of German cars in the Midwest. It is held the second Saturday of June in Shakopee, Mn.
My wife and I are planning to purchase either a motorhome or Airstream travel trailer in the near future and travel the National and State parks in the US. We want to keep on the move to see as much of the beauty this country and Canada have to offer.
