Beth Hennen. Beth's memory book page says: "Wow, what a writing assignment! Fill in a twenty-year gap in 5 lines or less! So, what is my life twenty years later? I'm a wife, mother, quilter, writer, Christian, Sunday School teacher, choir member, softball and soon to be basketball and soccer mom. I live in Oregon, which is the most wonderful place in the world to live, if you have webfeet! Obviously my webbed feet had gone undetected for many years because I am happy as a clam living in Oregon." [Husband/partner Phil, kids Sarah 9, Jennifer 11.]

We lived in Costa Mesa for nine years and moved to Tustin Ranch seven years ago. I stay busy playing tennis, teaching Kiddie-Gym and making sure the Little League is running smoothly. My family comes first and with all those kids [Jeffrey 12, Kyle 10] and stepkids [Kathi, Mark, Michael] and grandkids, I am very busy. What can I say? Life is good!"

Francesca Wade Felde. Sweet Fran Wade. Here's what her memory book page says: "I was pregnant with our son at the last reunion. Our family moved to a small rural town in Colorado before Peter was 2. I have been working at the local power company most of the time since we moved. My husband [Stephen] is a tile installer. Ridgway is an hour away from the ski resort of Telluride and I work in Ouray which is a summer tourist town. The county's population is less than 3,600."

Karen Haffner Lampe. Karen thinks this picture isn't any good -- would you guys please reassure her that she looks great? Karen's one of the girls I remember seeing way back when... "seeing" in the sense of "aware that she's out there somewhere."
(Saturday 21-Jul-2001)

In case you're wondering, I never went out with any of the girls in any of these pictures. I never got to know them well enough. There are only a handful of people from the CMHS Class of 1981 that I had any contact with after 9th grade. So for me, this wasn't so much a 20-year high school reunion, as it was a 24-year middle school reunion.
