From Home 2/9/2018
Time: 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM
Our next planning meeting can be done from the comfort of your own home or anywhere you like. I am scheduling this meeting using a Skype like program called Zoom. I think this allows us to avoid the iffy weather conditions in January and February and encourage out of town classmates to join in on the conversation and planning. The link and instructional video links are below. Participants can use their computer, I phone, Android phone, Apple or Android tablet. If you would like to test your device, contact me and I will schedule a Zoom meeting and help you with setup.

We decided the next thing we should focus on is finding our missing classmates. A list of the missing will be published on FB and our website. Please, review the list. If you know the address, phone numbers, Facebook name or email, send the information to Bob Bohls at firstname.lastname@example.org or via FB messenger to Bob Bohls. I will update the master list. In February we will broadcast a “Save the Date” message via mail and email to all known classmates.
We will not meet in December, but we will meet in January and February. The good news is that I've setup an account with Zoom, a Skype like option, so you will be able to attend from home. This makes it possible for more out of our towners to join in. Details will follow shortly.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving,

Class of 68 October 6th Planning Meeting
Friday - 10-6-2017 - 3PM to 6PM
Kickoff Planning Meeting for our 50 Year Reunion in 2018 at:
Jed's Barbeque and Brew
1566 S Reynolds Rd
Maumee, OH 419-482-7043
October 6, 2017
During our Kickoff Meeting Kim Bradshaw gave an overview of the Class of 67 reunion recently held at Belmont. Kim talked to several 67 classmates that gave the reunion high marks and loved Belmont. About 120 attended the Belmont dinner.
Cindy Naumann Presented details regarding the Elks Lodge. Kim presented Belmont options and Becky Nelson Kotnik several additional options including Capers (The old Jagels) on Byrne Rd. After discussion, the group decided to attempt to recover our deposit from the Elks Lodge and book the Saturday event at the Belmont.
In addition to the main event on Saturday, we discussed activities for Friday Saturday and Sunday. Bob Boggs suggested that we schedule a tour of the new stadium, provided it is finished and Bob and Curt Urschel offered to organize a golf outing for Saturday before the main event. Brunch at Brandywine on Sunday was also discussed and meeting at Dales on Friday after the stadium tour.
Locating classmates is the biggest challenge facing us right now. Several classmates living out of town have expressed interest in helping. Tracking down classmates might be just the thing.
Tasks to be done:
Kim Commit to Belmont venue
Duane Look into recovering deposit for Elks Lodge
Bob Ask Dave Youngman for proposal
Pam Check on proposal for DJ Leibers
Bob Distribute class list to out of towners to track down the missing and deceased
Pam Invite teachers

"The world isn't going backward, if you can just stay young enough to remember what it was really like when you were really young."
A. J. Liebling
Tonight for one night only...The Maumee High School Class of 1968!
“And one finds, especially by the time one reaches one's fifties, that there are a limited number of types of people in the world, and you went to high school with every single one of them. You can visit the Eskimos, you can visit the Bushmen in the Kalahari, you can go to Israel, you can go to Egypt, but everybody you meet is going to be somebody you went to high school with."
