Comments:

I hope we get a big turn out from graduation classes 66 & 67. I have not kept in touch except for 1 girlfriend and would love to see you all. Aloha for now.

School Story:

Yes but it's not funny. One time in the spring on my graduation year 1967 my friend Jeannie Bendowsky and I skipped school and went kite flying in Manito park. My brother Dan Crowley saw me and turned me in. I could not get Dan Kirby my DECA teacher to sign my pink slip and I had to go to school at Continuation High. Not many if any remember that. I got to go to my Sr. Prom but had to granduate with that other school. I finally forgave my brother.
