Ballard High School
"Class of 1966"

Dear Ballard Class of 1966 classmates,

Please take care of your selves and follow the guidelines they are offering in regards to the coronavirus (COVID-19) that is spreading through our area. People are dying out there so limit your travels. Be sure to wash your hands with soap and water, do not touch your mouth, eyes or nose unless you have washed your hands. Use common sense with no hand shaking or roaming through large crowds and be careful about what surfaces you touch. Keep away from sick people. If you feel tired, have a fever, trouble breathing, severe cough that won’t stop or pain that you cannot soothe please call your doctor for advice. Keep hydrated, get plenty of sleep and eat healthy diets.
We, who the officials in charge has determined the most vulnerable, will not be tested unless we are sick and that applies to the rest of the population. They are not able to test the entire population at this time. This means that the healthy carriers of the virus will not be tested giving them the possibility of infecting the more vulnerable. To break it down it looks like this, 1/3 of the population may get sick and 2/3 of the population will roam the country side possibly spreading the virus to the 1/3 who may get sick. 
It would break our hearts to lose any one of us to this virus.      

Well here we are in March and it seems like months have
been passing by like weeks. I should put a 30 minute math
class or better yet a language arts class right here to slow
time way down just like we remember it to be. Like the old
people say, “Back in the day.”
If you are looking for something to do while in seclusion we have posted all of our video presentations on the Stories and Videos page. This includes our 30 year, 40 year, 45 year and 50 year reunions along with the 2017, 2018, and 2019 picnic video presentations. Please enjoy.

Just in case you were wondering; The Seattle Mariners baseball team is the only active Major League Franchise who has never played in a World Series game.  
 “Who said there is no crying in Baseball?”

Don't forget to take a look at the great pictures taken by Meridith and her husband of the 2019 picnic. Stop by our Photo Memories department and check them out. If you are new to our class website and find it difficult recognizing anyone in the pictures posted there then you may need to plan on attend our next picnic and become reacquainted. Our committee is always looking for new ideas for our gatherings. Greg Carman suggested inviting Keith Bakke and his band for entertainment. Keith, if you are seeing this, please give us a call.
In closing, Please continue to stay healthy, hopeful and in good spirit because we all wish to see you again in September. By the way, those of you who were unable to attend last year’s class picnic really missed a good one. We hope your plans for 2020 will include us next time. We are praying that this virus will have turned into a thing of the past by September. 

Thank you,
Your Ballard High School Class of 1966 Reunion Committee.
