Favorite High School Memories: Jean McElligott, calculus with Fred Ridder and Rocco Lardiere, track practice with Fred Blank, Lori Ross, Catherine Dalziel, planning/executing/attending 1967 Prom, cruising the Oregon coast with Bill (Walker) Hollenbeck, Erik Thune and Kevin Boyd, barfing at Dick Campbell’s, working at Albertsons with Erik and Vicki Tallman, getting caught in Tom Cavanaugh’s neighbor’s driveway while sneaking out for a midnight Wilson skinny dip …
As this reunion gets closer and so many people are emailing in, the memories keep flooding back. Way too many to even attempt to enumerate in the short fashion above. I’m thankful that Wilson was available to me for 4 years.
