I just hope I remember people's names. In my old age I am horrible at that. Speaking of old age my feet hurt so if there is anyone at the reunion that could let me get a piggyback ride from them that would be great!

Great job Julie on the website, even though my husband and I couldn't attend the events it sure was great to see what everyone is up to and to hear from some fellow classmates. I agree, I hope this website can stay going after the reunion to continue getting in contact with fellow classmates. Thanks again for all your hard work in putting it all together.

It was a nice time seeing faces of classmates I have not seen in years. I so appreciated the DJ and his mix of music. It was nice to see so many people dancing and having a good time. I also appreciate the website.
I hope we can collect enough funds to keep it going and
hopefully draw more of our classmates onto the site to
update their profiles and join us for the 35 year party.
Thanks to Julie for getting the website set up and coordinating the party. Also thank you to anyone who worked behind the scenes to make the reunion a success.

Thanks to those of you that posted pics from the reunion. Great to see for those of us unable to attend...just wish my glasses were strong enough to read name tags on some :)

The 30th reunion turned out to be pretty fun.  I stopped at the Red Hotel a few weeks ago, so it's a very nice Hotel.  I'am looking forward to stopping by after working my usual long day.  A drink or two might do me good lol.  Great job putting this together...

Are there any plans in the works for a 40th ( :0 ) reunion next summer?

John Hoffman

Please disregard my initial post. Julie recently put the official information on the home page, which is:

East High School


Class Of 1979


Welcome to Madison East Class of 79' Home page.  If you are new to the site click on the 79' classmate profile and update your profile.




August 24th

Bridges Golf Course Bar and Restaurant

More information to come!




*INCORRECT* Rob Penfield told me maybe the 40th reunion will happen the weekend of August 16-17, 2019....?

Amy Schamens (Dellis)

I will keep checking back.  Will mark my calendar for that weekend.  Now that I am back in WI perhaps I will be able to attend.    Thanks for keeping the info flowing.

40th Reunion Motorcycle Ride?

Polling interest: does anyone else still ride motorcycycle, and be interested in a Class of 1979 Group Ride, maybe on Friday afternoon, or maybe on Saturday 10-2? Weather permitting, of course. Route TBD, but thinking the "Driftless Area" out toward Blue Mound State Park & Dodgeville (open to other ideas). We can grab lunch somewhere, then wind our way back to Madison.

Interested former riders might check out relatively new "shareconomy" sites like Twisted Road or Riders-Share. Each site currently has a couple different models available for $75/day. I can't speak for everyone, but if my wife doesn't come down, I'd be willing to take an interested classmate on the back. I'm mellow now! smiley
