Yes! Attending Reunion
Since 1960:

From high school I went into the Navy and served on submarines for six years. Then completed a four year apprenticeship in the sheet metal trade. Changed direction and started working in magazines and newspapers which interested me much more. March 1989 started my own newspaper/magazine business. Presently serving on the Board of Directors of the Michigan Press Association and work at being a leader in the publishing field. Member of The National Press Club in Washington DC and a life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

School Story:

Besides being on the track team as a mile runner, I was the main press operator for printing the school newspaper for about three years in the school print shop. I still fell I owe my success in many thing I have done in my life to my favorite teacher, Mister Harding, at GPH.

Do you plan to attend the reunion?

No

"Roll'em Mister Dale" Lets see that movie again your father was in. Sure hope you have a wonderful Birthday and just knowing you was a real treat for me. Even more important than talking with Soupy Sales on his front porch often. Hope all is well with you and yours. Looking at your year book photo made my day for good memories of GPHS
