Ok, those of us that went to reunion, as far as I can read, had a blast...however, we have a lot of folks that made the class of '78 great!

How about some of these Eagles that I did not see at the reunion...

Wendy Godwin - sweet on the bb court! :-)
Rick Bergien - BB stud!
Paul Skinner - need i say more...
Glen Broemer - nicest guy in the '78 class.
Pat Stratton - "PUTTS"
Joe Polson - even his sister-in-law has no idea...
Scott Eichstadt - what's up?
Kim and Kari - no need to even put a last name...
Beth Bauer - always a smile
Ann Beckstrom - no one was any sweeter...

Though I was not friends with some of these folks, they are truly some of the people that had an impact on Kennedy, in my opinion, while we were there. This list is not exclusive for sure...but I would love to see all these folks at the 50th Birthday bash at Hrbek's or Boelter's. :-) JK

The pictures are great!

Can someone identify everyone in the Valley View group picture? I recognize some but not all. It would be great to be able to put a name with the new face.

Adam, great pic's from the from the past, I remember the Red Owl store, and a really neat pic. installing the Kennedy High sign. What was the year.

Adam Fka Kim Lee

I believe the Kennedy sign photo was taken in 1965.

Regarding the old Bloomington pics, they are from a police photographer named Norling who took tons of photos in the '50s, '60s and '70s around Bloomington, and kept detailed info on all the shots. The Bloomington Historical Society now maintains the Norling photos (along with many other great resources of old Bloomington), and has compiled several of them in a book available for sale. BHS also has a website, If you visit BHS, drop a few bucks into their donation box since they aren't funded too well in the Bloomington budget. Sad.

Hey John --

where are all the hole in one shots from the golfing??
Someone HAD to have some shots ??

08/27/08 10:06 PM #483    

Marilyn L. Gould (VanOsdel)

Yeah! We never heard how the golfing day went. Give us an update please.

And I just have to say this:

I know we lived in special times. Not only did we live in a great little city with great schools with great opportunities, we had lots of freedom and were safe for the most part. We all were very fortunate. That's one thing we'll always share.

My husband and I drove around Bloomington before we went to the airport on Sunday. He was noticing the nice wide residential streets; homes in good, if not great, shape; school properties well maintained, plenty of commercial business for a good tax base, nice parks.

It's still a great place. Blessed are you who live there!

Hey All,

We had nine of us play golf at that Friday, since most of the previous reunions' golfers cancelled when they heard that Sue P was playing! She professed to be a beginner, but it wasn't her playing that was dangerous or even entertaining, but it was her insistent yelling as if she either hit many long putts or was turned on by Brian Kuznia's legs! Just joking, Steamey! You were the blast of the day!

We had three groups playing. Brian Zuznia and Mike Belew played with Lori Jensen and Sue P, while Heidi and Shirley played with me. Jerry Ingebrigtsen had to cancel at the last minute because of a work issue. Matt Harris and Dave Merrick formed their own two-some. The group with Jensen and Sue P won the best-ball format with a something under par - clearly some heavy cheating going on! Matt and Dave can swing mean sticks, but clearly the best golf occured by my partners Heidi and Shirley who combined shot a combined 15 under par. It was my golf contributions that brought our overall score up. Dang!

The day was beautiful, and the 19th hole was great! Unfortunately, I had to immediately leave for Iowa after golf to make a late afternoon appointment, but I assume that the libations continued to pour well into the evening! I hope that with some advance planning, we can have a large golf play day in 2010.

It is rumored that Sue P plans to organize a bowling evening in 2010 and raid Wade Boelter's closet for his best polyester shirts and slacks for her team's bowling uniforms. I have heard that Mike McArdle is so excited to bowl that evening that he is planning to skip his weekly pinochle league at the Bloomington VFW Hall. Even after all of these years, you still give, don't you Mike?

If we can get Wittstruck, Hrbek, and Patte to play golf, I suspect the good time level will increase dramatically! We all have two years to clear our calendars, so let's make this 50th birthday party better than any surprise party you may have with family and friends!

Thanks, Colleen! Even with as much grief that I give Sue P, she is one of my favorites too. She just doesn't need to know that, right? ;-)

Thanks for the greeting! You are great!

Sue Ellen M. Peterson (Polson)

Oh I know it alright! Got ya sucker! Once again I must say it was a great weekend! Hope we all stay on this website and stay in touch for a long time.

Oh and by the way John I was screaming on those holes just to psyche you out! Ha! Maybe next time you can be on our team!

4th grade was the best ever, boy did we cause some havoc! I was so glad you made it to the reunion and we could spend some time together. Next time I will bring the barbies! Everyone have a great holiday weekend, I am off to California for the weekend!

For those who attended F.Wilson Pond Elementary: before I left yesterday to fly home, I wandered the halls at Pond and took pictures of some familiar items for fun. Check 'em out on my profile. I can't believe how well preserved the school is!
