Glad to see so many turned out for our 60th, no 61st, no the 62nd Class of 1960 Reunion
Yes, we had our 62nd Class Reunion on two nights. The first was held at Tanner's, a casual gathering, and the 2nd was at Cinzetti's, still casual, but a little more upscale.
Following is almost all who attended the Saturday Night Event. Only Leigh Aaron Leary had to leave before this picture was snapped.
Email From Class President Stanley Schlozman
I am dreadfully sorry to miss this 62nd reunion but a succession of medical problems has made me stay close to home. I am now on the mend and should be good to go in a few months. Please give my best regards to our classmates and I hope to attend our 65th in 3 years.
When my kids were little I always told them that wherever they go, whatever they do they represent lots of things, but also Paseo High School. "But we never attended Paseo High School" they would respond. "Don't confuse me with the facts" I would reply. "You are honorary students of Paseo High School as your father is a proud Paseo graduate." Well, at least I tried.
Best wishes to all,

Paseo Class of 1960
Greetings Fellow Pirates:
Hope you’re having a wonderful time! Wish we could be there celebrating with all of you. Have no idea how many of you made it to the Reunion, but hope it’s a good number. Since I live in Southwest Colorado, I’ve stayed connected with just a few class members, and checked on others with Facebook.
My partner, Patsy Troutner, and I live in Pagosa Springs, Colorado (which is located on Highway 160 about 1 hour east of Durango, CO, and 1 hour north of Chama, New Mexico) and if you know where that is, you know we live in the beautiful San Juan Mountains. And for you railroad fans, we live halfway between the two centers of historic steam-powered scenic narrow-gauge railroads.
Patsy and I have been together for six years. She’s a ranch-girl who grew up in Lake City, CO, where as a teenager she had her own horse-riding business. She was a dedicated nurse and hospital administrator. I taught school, about 40 years in the KC Mo School District, mainly teaching science and mathematics; also taught at several universities, including Rockhurst, Uof Mo-KC, Univ. of Mo-Rolla, K-State, etc. In addition, while a student in Warrensburg, I was on the volunteer fire department. And when I lived in Lee’s Summit, MO, I was a sworn police officer for a few years.
It was a combination of science, humor, and dancing that drew Patsy and I together. We have many of the same interests. We still like to dance, take photographs, occasionally go out and target-shoot, and while I do watercolor paintings, she does Southwest-style weaving on two looms and is also an incredible baker and cook, who enjoys preparing various styles of cooking from Scottish and Moroccan to Israeli and Southwestern US (and of course, BBQ for this old KC boy!). We love working in our yard.
I am a member of the Freemasons, and both of us belong to the Order of the Eastern Star. In addition to the Pagosa Masonic Lodge, I belong to the Durango/San Juan Lodge, and the Amethyst Masonic Lodge in Creede. We’ve both been local officers also with some state-level positions. I’m a Shriner and drive a “Tin Lizzie” miniature auto in parades. In addition, I belong to the Scottish Rite. I still do a small amount of model railroading.
I have one daughter, two adult grandchildren, and one great-grandson, as well as a few distant cousins living here in Pagosa Springs; another daughter, her husband, and two younger grandkids live in Illinois. Patsy has a lot of family living here in Colorado. One son lives in Colorado Springs, and another son who lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and other family members also there. One of her grandsons is a New Mexico State Trooper.
I think this is enough of my rattling on. If you ever get out to the Four Corners area, and can stop, please do so. We know where the good places to eat are, where drinks are cool and good, and even where there are some fun things to do. Wishing all of you a fun time there, many more pleasant, happy and healthy revolutions around our nearest star.
