Welcome to the Park High Class Of 1965 website, created to promote our 50th Reunion and help us re-connect with classmates from the Class of 1965.  Reunion dates are AUGUST 7th, 8th and 9th.  Click on the Reunion Information for details for each event.
 

CHECK YOUR EMAIL OFTEN FOR THE NEXT TWO WEEKS.  WE ARE SENDING OUT IMPORTANT EVENT INFORMATION EVERY FEW DAYS.  SEE ALL OF YOU SOON.

Don't miss a great remembrance of the summer jobs we held while we were at Park.  Jim Jenkins has written a witty recollection.  Go to his Profile and scroll down  

ALERT:  Highway 20 at I-94 is still under construction.  Exit and Entrance ramps may be open, but the roads are not very good.  Preferably exit I-94 southbound from Milwaukee at Highway K and northbound from Chicago at Highway 11.  Oakes Rd off of Highway 11 will take you directly to the hotel area.  Oakes Rd is between Willow Rd and Highway 31, head north on Oakes.

ANYONE ATTENDING EITHER THE WINGSPREAD OR SCJ TOURS, FIND SOME PRE-TOUR INFO ON THE LEFT "REUNION TOUR INFORMATION".

 ALL EVENT TIMES, ADDRESSES AND OTHER PERTINENT INFORMATION FOR THE REUNION CAN BE FOUND ON THE REUNION INFORMATION LINK TO THE LEFT.

***********************************************

According to John Weibel,  we can blame it all on a sociology class assignment. The end result was Rocky Falaschi, John Weibel, Skip Meekma, Mike Snyder and Al Singstock wowing the kids at Southern Colony with a skit that involved plenty of smooth moves and, yes, singing.  
 Because it was the holiday season, I believe the tune was "Jingle Bells".  Skip Meekma was the choreographer, drilling us thru all our intricate moves the day before in Park's 1st floor hallway. We did get an "A", and I can remember that because there were few, if any, other A's ever to appear on my report card. The pic I submitted for the classmates site is one of 3 I found tucked into my kipi, all pretty much the same, but with slight variations. John Weibel
