The website was continued after the 2013 reunion for the enjoyment of the members.  They shouldn't be subjected to annoying posts when they come to the Message Forum.  Forums work when people participate - so don't be bashful.  But be respectful.  This may seem like a private chat room, but 800 of your classmates have access to it (along with ~two dozen of our former teachers), and many more classmates read than participate.  

The administrators reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.  Access and participation on this forum is not a right, it is a privilege and abuse may result in suspension or revocation of WHS60s site access at any time.  

Abuse includes but is not limited to personal attacks, offensive, demeaning, excessive or nonsensical posts, badgering, foul language, etc.  It is not a place to disparage others, especially deceased classmates.  Posting involving politics or religion are prohibited as they typically and quickly become offensive/demeaning.    

We don't actively monitor the forum, but respond to complaints and take action as deemed appropriate.

Yes, very strong and handsome man, Charles Langston.  Football was made for him I can see.  Very sad to hear.  Condolences to wife Darlene Rominger, WHS Class of 1962, family and friends.

Just got back from the Nice Memorial we had for our classmate Don Murdoch who recently passed - Thanks to all who made the event possible and as pleasant as a memorial can be. Don's 1962 classmates and those who knew him from when he worked at the sheriff's dept shared thoughts and memorties - RIP Don, REUNIONs will not be the same with you missing

Greg Kareofelas - I really enjoyed talking to you about you sister Sue. I attended first and second grade with here at the old Holy Rosary Elementary School, the one that burned down. I was visiting Dr. Demosthenes Pappagianis at his Davis home. I was collecting Dues for the Davis Democratic Club. He showed me a collection of some of his awards. Then I see Sue Kareofelas in many of the pictures and he starts talking about her. He tells me she ran the Department at UC Davis for 30 years. She was so instrumental in the daily operations of this department and everyone was well aware of her impact and her many years of dedication and commitment. I felt so moved that we shared two years together in first and second grade. She was a gem and was well appreciated for her efforts. May she Rest in Peace.

Sue Kareofelas was a beauty.  I always called her the Snow White of Woodland High School.  She is remembered fondly,  Saw her in Nugget Market when I was visiting Mother and she remained just as lovely.

Hi Rick! I want to thank you for the nice comments and memories of my sister Sue. I am getting together with my two younger sisters next week and I will be sure to share your memories and kind words with them. It was really nice meeting you at Don's memorial and having a chance to talk in person. It is situations like this that makes the ability to "comunicate on this forum" so speical. Thanks to all that share special moments and info here!!

Today,  80 years ago - World War II, June 6, 1944, Battle of Normandy, D-Day.  Fighting against Hitler, 4,414 allied troops killed, 2,501 Americans, used 7,000 ships under General Eisenhower.  It was known as Operation Overlord.  Some of our Veterans today were on those beaches, at age 19.  This is how we gained our freedom.  Thank you to all who gave and to all who returned.  Freedom is not free.

Greg, Linda and I moved back to Woodland in 1981 so I could attend graduate school.  Linda and your sister Sue became best friends. Our kids and Sue's kids became best friends. At one time, Sue and Linda were co-PTA Presidents at Gibson Elementary School.  After we moved to Salt Lake City in 1985, and continuing on thereafter, Linda and Sue remained best of friends. I did some legal work for her after she injured her leg. We had regular contact with Sue and Linda and Sue would spend hours on the phone. About six months before she passed, we spent several hours with Sue at her house in Woodland.  That was a special day for us. We both love and miss Sue.  We include her and her family (guess that includes Greg too) in our prayers.  David Hughes

Enjoyed the pictures from Camp Beale. I did not know until a few years ago that it was a WW ll POW camp. Some of the jail cells and many concrete foundations are near the south enterance to Beale AFB. They sold some of the old WW II barracks in 1947 and my father build our house in Woodland from the wood and windows. Thanks Theresa Eve

Delbert:  How interesting about Beale Air Force Base.  Love all the history, especially as Dad received his Army training there, while Mother attended Chico State College for teaching.  I was born in Chico.  I believe it was one of my parents happiest times.  Dad was in the 13th Armored Division, the Black Cats.

Just had a nice telephone call from Sharon Little Boatman, Class of 1964.  She will not be attending our Class Reunion this September; however, she extends her best wishes to all the classmates.  I just want to add that Sharon is a very accomplished quilter and tole painting artist.  She lives in Emmett, Idaho in a home she and her husband Ken designed.  Ken has passed.  But her son Matthew lives next door.  Sharon makes quilts to donate to the Veterans each Year.  It is an annual event in Emmett.   Her phone number is:  208 284-4610.  She loves to chat.  Here she is with her son Matthew and her father, Mr. Little; who has passed.  Sharon made both the quilts.

I noticed Nancy Sans is on the list of unknown addresses. Nancy lives in San Francisco and is one of the most successful and talented Holy Rosary and WHS '64 alumni. Among her other accomplishments is that she was a primary writer for Sesame Street from 1984 to 2002. 

She was recently interviewed on Jake's Happy Nostalgia Show (Episode 129). 

Rick, you guys have done a great job on this reunion and I look forward to seeing everyone tha's left in September.

Theresa Eve (1964)

Mike:  Thank you for your post.  The Committee has researched Nancy with her great talented history.  Anne Loud and Rick Gonzales, have the information you provided.  We did watch the interview of Nancy.  However, we were not able to obtain a mailing address for her in San Francisco.  We did speak to Liz Geer also to help.  Unfortunately, no address so far.

Theresa Eve (1964)

Nancy travels a great deal, so no address.  Thank you all.
