30 Years and 79 is still lookin Fine!

DEBLARYN@aol.com" <DEBLARYN@aol.com

Fellow classmates:

Our 30th reunion celebration is less than 7 months away.

Mark the dates (if you haven't already) for Friday, July 31st and Saturday, August 1st.

Details will follow in a later correspondence.

I have attached a spreadsheet containing the latest class of 79 roster. The file includes the following classmate info if available:

1. Their last known mailing address (need this for the invitation mailing)

2. Their last known email address

3. designation of deceased classmates (for a memorial)

We are asking that each of you look over this list and make updates or additions if you can.

At the very least, please confirm or add your own info.

Updates can be done by a simple email to me or directly to the spreadsheet then send it back to my email. I ask that you highlight any changes or additions that you make to the spreadsheet before sending it back to me.

We want to be sure and touch base with as many classmates as possible.

With your help we can make that happen!

Feel free to forward this on to any classmate not included in this email.

Thanks in advance! I look forward to seeing all of you in the not so distant future!!

Larry Napoli

PS-There will be a meeting held in the middle of February to see where we stand with the class list. From that meeting a list of the "still missing" classmates will be divided among those in attendance or those that confirm their commitment to locating our lost colleagues (out of town volunteers as well - we will email you your list).

Let me know via email if you are interested in attending the meeting and or being a part of the search party - Larry

Howdy snowy friends! 12.2007

‘Twas Three Days After Christmas

(A shameless, abbreviated rip-off of a great classic poem.)

Twas three days after Christmas and all through your house,
You felt restless like fire only a good drink could dowse,

Gift wrap and boxes were strewn without care,

In hopes that a cleaning maid soon would be there;

The children were fighting, tearing presents to shreds,

While visions of Bud Lights danced in your heads,

So get off your asses and put on your cap,

No time for excuses, don’t be a sap,

Cathy Svingos is visiting, from Florida this week,

So Pam’s on a quest, old friends she does seek,


It’s Buffalo Wild Wings on Pearl we’ll meet,

Let me know if you’ll come, I’ll try saving a seat,

Starting at Happy Hour, maybe half past five,

On Friday the 28th, a good night for jive,

Bring photos or memories, stories delight,

Of old times and new times, things then and things might,

And you’ll hear me exclaim, ‘fore I drive out of sight,

'Happy New Year to all, and to all a good-night.'

Pam Fiore 800.943.0043 Ext 230, c-512.626.3883, pfiore@smartersecurity.com

Please pass the word to others, especially others that know Cathy. She is on her own, with no immediate family anymore and would get a great kick out of seeing old friends.

We’re meeting Friday, December 28th at the Buffalo Wild Wings at 8465 Pearl Road. There’s a Walmart and Home Depot behind it. It’s close to 71 and 80 in Strongsville (44136), not too far from 480 either.

Look up www.buffalowildwings.com, google or call 440.243.9464 for directions if you need them.

I’m only in for 5 days this trip (with daughter Aubree) and this is my one night with friends. For those I won’t see, Happy New Year!

Hello to All;

8/1/07

Just an FYI that I am hosting a party for a 1979 VF Classmate of ours who is visiting from Vegas. Mark Brenkus (we used to call him Boog - like Boog Powell) will be in town next week and I am having an informal gathering on Sat. Aug 11 beginning at 6 pm. If you would like to see some of your old classmates and Boog, feel free to stop by. My address is 6975 Anthony Lane in Parma Hts. I will take care of the food and beer....if you would like something other than beer to drink, feel free to bring it.

Hope to see some of you on the 11th.

Happy New Year to all!

Another year is upon us and I hope it brings you joy and good health!

To help kick-off the New Year right, it was suggested by a fellow classmate that we all meet at the Saddle Ridge Night Club located where the old Mining Company was at the corner of Pearl and Brookpark roads on Saturday, February 3rd at 7pm. Bring your dancing shoes and let's dance the night away!!

Just a reminder to make email changes in your address book when I send the updated alumni list because I'm seeing email messages with old or invalid email addresses in the To: box. I am attaching an updated list in this email. Remember, recent additions/changes are in red so check your address books, please.

Thanks and hope to see you on the 3rd.

George

Happy Thanksgiving to All.

I recently sent out an Evite to my Christmas party and I hope I successfully sent it to all whom I know from the Valley Forge email list.

If I missed you, please know that it was not intentional--I may have been working from an old VF list.

If you and a guest want to join us on the 16th, please know that you are always welcome to my home for the holidays!

Have a great time tonight.

Ciao,

Judy Bodenhamer
