Ballard High School
"Class of 1966"

Hello Ballard Class of 1966 classmates,

The leaves are gone (except at my house where my fence traps them from blowing up the street). Now is the time to start wearing all those knitted scarves, sweaters and hats for the winter. The good news is that daylight has become longer, it started on Dec. 22nd when the sun began staying up for a few seconds longer each day and gradually those seconds will amount to minutes. Once we reach daylight saving on Sunday, March 8th 2020 we’ll get an extra hour added to those accumulated minutes and we’ll be back in the realm of warm, bright days and short nights. In the mean time you’ll need to start planning out your New Year's resolutions. I plan to get outdoors more and start having fun. Do you know how much fun one can have with a slinky toy and an escalator? But I have to say, at our age, I will deserve whatever happens to me on a pogo stick. Anyway, enjoy yourselves and start thinking of fiber diets, 30 minute workouts, and warmer weather and of courses our upcoming class picnic.

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 recent news coverage we discovered that one of the planes (the Flying Fortress B-17 bomber) from the same company Rick Guttu flew on crashed killing a number of passengers. Two of the planes from this company were highlighted in the past two picnic video presentations. Rick, please do us a favor and take adventures like these off your bucket list.
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 this year’s class picnic really missed a good one. We hope your plans for 2020 will include us next time. 

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