A Message from RHS
Irene, Dear Heart...
I had the most wonderful time last night -- my cup runneth
over!!! It was the greatest fun ~ such vivid memories of so
many students, who and how they were in my classes; I even
remembered where many of them sat in my classes. I am
grateful that so many greeted me, introduced me to their
spouses and "significant others," and recalled the RHS
classes we shared 40 years ago.
You and the Reunion Committee did magnificiently in bringing
so many to a terrific celebration, producing a thoroughly
memorable program -- I especially enjoyed the dancing; the
final three couples were awesome!!! -- and recalling the
late 60's with such wonderful spirit.

They looked hip. They looked cool, groovy and could juggle
the tough guys with the twinkle of an eye. This is how they
looked in 1969. Got any idea what they look like today.
C'mon... Arencha bit curious? Well dig it, Groovy! Far out!
