For the past couple of months, I have been ironing out the details of things that I need to do to get our Class of 1980's reunion off and running on Friday and Saturday, July 30th and 31st. I have been fortunate and have had little trouble catching up with many of the classmates. However, there were still many others who I and others have NO idea where they can be found.
A few of my friends advised me to check out the internet's White Pages. They were instrumental in me discovering the whereabouts of a couple of people. I even got to speak to one gal who I had lost touch with since the summer of 1980. We had a nice talk!
So, then, someone suggested that I attempt to find them on FACEBOOK. With FB, I found information on two other people. One man has a poplular name. I found a BUNCH of people with his name. Oh, boy... For some reason, I went to the first man and sent a short message to him. That was late yesterday afternoon. This afternoon, I received a response from him. Believe it or not, out of the 20 or so people with that name, the first man on the list was the RIGHT one!!! I am THRILLED! I have heard absolutely NOTHING from him since the very early 1970s. He explained to me that he often thinks of his time in Leoti and wonders what happened to everyone. We are planning on getting caught up very soon!
