Did you know that the Park-Horlick football rivalry goes way back to 1928, when the first game ended in a 0-0 tie.  It is the second oldest high school rivalry in the state, second only to Green Bay East vs Green Bay West which dates back to 1904. Since the inception, Park leads the series 52-31-6.  In 1943 and in 2008 the schools played each other twice.  In 1963, when we were Juniors, Park was victorious 23-20.  In 1964, as Seniors, Park and Horlick ended the game with a 20-20 tie.  This year the game is the last of the season on Friday, October 16th.  Doesn't look so good.  Park is 0-4 and Horlick is 3-2.  

This year's score Horlick 40  Park 7  Maybe next year???

World Class (of '65) Reunion Weekend
By Jim Jenkins 

You can now find all of Jim's stories on the left link--Jim Jenkins' Stories. Jim has promised more down the road. So stay tuned.


Attention 65 classmates. If anyone is interested in viewing our garden railroad, maybe for the last time, we will be running trains Sat. July 09 as part of The Best Garden Walk tour of all time. You start at the Vernon Lutheran Church in the town of Vernon. There for $8 measly dollars you get a map and can tour 4 gardens in the Mukwonago area. A portion of the proceeds go to the Mukwonago Food Pantry Resource Center, so you see, it goes to a great cause. The hours are 10am til 4pm. You can tour at your leasure. Kevin will be displaying some his fantastic fused glass right in the gardens amidst plants and flowers. I will be displaying some of my floral watercolors as well. Weather men are calling for bright sunshine with temps. in the 70's. (Knock on wood) so there are no excuses for not seeing "The Rocky Lights Railroad" maybe for the last time!
