Comments:

I have had various jobs throughout the years. My first full-time job was at the First National Bank on Sixth Avenue and 56th Street.

My next job was at Harmony Hall on Third Avenue (SPEBSQSA). I worked there for a little more than a year.

We moved to Merrill, Wisconsin and lived there for 11 years. I worked at the brand new, just opening Fiskars Factory in Wausau, Wisconsin. Didn't stay there long - did not like factory work. From there I went to a position at Park City Credit Union in Merrill as the Secretary for the President and the Board of Directors, as well as being a teller and handling all Certificates of Deposit.

We moved from Merrill back to Kenosha, where I worked for a year for 2 attorneys in Kenosha and had a reupholstering business with a friend.

I did not work there long, as I was offered a job at Abbott Laboratories. I started there as a secretary and was promoted after several years to a Meeting Planner. I worked as a planner for 11 years and retired in 2002.

Since retiring, we have spent the winters in Florida (first) and then in Arizona. Liking the desert weather better, we continue to spend time in Arizona every winter.

School Story:

All through high school, I participated in choir. Our last year of high school was split shifts - too many kids and not enough room or teachers! Gave us all a chance to get a job.

Loved my high school years. Lots of good memories, football at the Lakefront Stadium, Sadie Hawkins, Prom, the Annex, etc.

Working on the Class Reunions, especially the 50th, has truly been a labor of love for me. I have always loved attending the reunions and catching up with old friends!

You are most welcome, Sandy. The beach house did not have air, so it probably would have been too hot for you. We did have a great time.

So glad you found our class website. I have wondered for a long time where and how you are. We went to grade school together, along with Mike Putrynski and Gary & Allen Thompson. Remember? I lived on 40th Ave. and 70th Street.

Would you please fill in a few details on your profile? I'm sure other classmates would like to get in touch with you!
