Aledo High School Class of 1967

Aledo High School Class of 1967

Comments

Today is our luncheon date and Mike Crawford will be coming to share his Dad's WWII story. Come and join us at Happy Joe's at 11:30.
I moved away from Aledo my freshman year and graduated from High School in 1967 at Ritenour High School in Overland Missouri. I have recently "come home" and bought a new house in the Morningstar development north of Aledo. I would like to locate some of my former classmates. I understand Tommy Wiley has passed he was a very close friend of mine growing up that was sad news to me...but if anyone knows Gwen Turner (I dont't know her married name) Gary Chandler, Frank Duncan, Steve Whisenant or Pam Whisenant I would appreciate anyone's help in contacting my former classmates.
Join us for a Celebration of Life service for Dan Coutant at Vitale’s Trattoria located at 602 SE 3rd St, Aledo, IL 61231 on Saturday, April 13th at 4 p.m. Please come and share any stories or memories you have of Dan. Please let me know if you will be attending so we order enough food and beverage. Thank you! Vicki Coutant
Reunion committee: did anyone happen to pick up the black remembrance poster? I'm pretty sure I brought it home, but I can't find it anywhere. Driving me nuts!
Just be ready for your exit,
by dropping your heavy load,

You will reach true joy and peace
by taking the Roman Road.

Let’s try this again in Twenty-two,
come by car, plane or bicycle.

We’ll celebrate our next date,
hitting the “double nickle.”
We took our share of wrong turns,
no GPS/Google Maps.

Boomers found out the hard way,
wisdom is worth more than apps.

Though Burlington tracks are gone,
we’re not at the end of the line.

Cubs won at one hundred eight,
So don’t accept our decline.
(continued)
Are We There Yet?
(Traveling from Dragon to Draggin’)

On life’s road we’re over the hill,
though most of us still above ground.

Rear view mirrors reflect scenes
of the classmates no longer around.

Our journey began solo,
Heavy foot pe***ng the tach.

Returns with vans of grandkids,
Prepare for a heart-attack! (continued)
Dan talked with George Gillette on Saturday & he will be attending the class reunion! 👍🏼

Okay....something a little different this month. We are going to have our usual Class Luncheon at Happy Joes on the 22nd of June.

Then we are having a special Luncheon at Happy Joes, on the 29th because one our classmates will be in town...Dennis Johnson is will be here. I haven't seen him for a very long time. Hope many can come to see him.👍😀

[04/26/21]   Don't forget this Tuesday the 27th is the Class luncheon at Happy Joes after the CC (covid crap). Hope you can make it. Wear you face mask into HJ then to eat, I would suggest taking them off..!!👍😃

[04/11/21]   OK, I think it's time to start up the Class Luncheon again at noon at Happy Joes on the Tuesday the 27th. Where we usually sit (when not inside the smaller room) there are tables removed to make it less crowed. When we have had lunch there, there has been less people in the building. So, come and join us, if you want. Both of us have our 2 shots, along with most of you too. If you don't feel safe, I understand.......we'll just come to your house........................... .....only kidding. !!! Hope to see many of you on the 27th.👍🤣

[03/03/21]   FYI....we went into Happy Joes today for lunch (buffet is back) AND guess who was in our room where usually met.....The Card Ladies and it was full...just saying..!!

[02/21/21]   Is anyone interested in a March Class Luncheon at Happy Joes. We were there today and plan bring back their buffet the first of March. Please let me know either way. Hope everyone is keeping warm..!!😏

[02/08/21]   I don't know about anyone else, but I'm getting real tired of the snow and cold weather....!! 🥶 Anyone want to have a class meeting in the shelter in the Park......Just kidding..!!🤪😉

On another note, since you are at home more, does anyone have some old, or classic pictures from our past you'd like to share with the rest of the class?😃

We wish our Class of 1967 a Safe and a Very Merry Christmas and a much Happier New Year. We hope the Covid Crap subsides enough to restart our Luncheons.....we miss ya'll. 🍷🎄❤

Just some fun facts about our graduating year..!!

Just some fun facts about our graduating year..!!

[11/20/20]   We are going to have our Class luncheon/meetin' on Tuesday the 24th of Nov. It will be at the Shelter in Central Park, since HJ and other eating establishments have no eating in. Yes, it might be a little chilly mid 40's but Paula wanted to come on over from Burlington. Those that want to come, please do. If you do plan on coming, just let us know - than you..!!

[10/26/20]   Since I haven't heard much from the Luncheon crowd over the weekend, I think we will NOT meet on the 27th (Tuesday). The Park will be too chilly and some people don't feel safe eating at Happy Joe's. I think classmates will have to decide on their own who is ready to meet inside next month. We ran into Jenny (Happy Joe's)at Walmart and asked her about HJ and she said they have spaced the tables like they are supposed to and anymore they don't have the crowds like they used to. She also said they don't have the buffet right now because of the number for people coming inside to eat.

If you would please let the us know if you are okay with inside or not.....they is no wrong answer..!! Thank you and have a wonderful November and hope to see you next month.👍🤔😀

[10/20/20]   Ok, the 27th of Oct is the date for our class Luncheon. Should we try one more time in the shelter (depending on the temp & wind) or should we try Happy Joe's..? I'm open to either. Please let me know soon. Paula will drive her new car over from Burlington either way..!!

09/17/2020

After talking to some classmates about getting together for our luncheon/meetin' again - It's a go...!! We'll meet at the Pavilion in Central Park at noon and pick up some lunch somewhere if you wish, we'll keep our social distance (I hate that phrase) and wear you mask, if you wish (just take it of when you eat though)..!! If you know people don't look at our Class Page on Facebook, give them a call or email them. See you on the 22nd.👍😀

[09/12/20]   Okay, here we go again. Do we want to have a class luncheon/get-together on the 22nd of Sept..? I got wind of one of our favorite classmates from Indiana will be here on the 22nd and would like to see us. We can still meet at the Central Park in the Pavilion if we do meet. You can bring a sack lunch/drink or just come to the Pavilion with or w/o a mask and we will keep our distance. Please say yes or no for yourself. WE will attend - if it's a go..!!

09/01/2020

We're startin' to get old..!!🧐🙂

[08/14/20]   Okay got a question for the Class of 67. It's been awhile since we met for our monthly luncheon, because of the covid-19 crap. I was asked about meeting now, however in a Park in Aledo like Central for Fenton instead of Happy Joes. If you want to order a Sub or drive thru McDonalds, it's up to you. Also bring a lawn chair if you wish and you can wear a mask if you want. We would keep our social distances like good boys and girls too. If we do meet it would be on Aug 25. I would like to hear from the classmates that usually meet. If we get several that would like to, that's fine and if we don't we will wait.🙃😃🍦

[07/29/20]   Beth Stephens passed some bad news to our class that Jean Ann Lutrell passed away yesterday. She will be cremated and buried in Aledo with her parents. I will pass on more info when I hear them.

[05/11/20]   Well, I got word that Dwight "Monty" Stegall passed away on Sunday the 10th. He was born Feb 11, 1948 - May 10, 2020. I know he didn't graduate with us (I forget where he moved to tho) but he was with us earlier in high school. As soon as I see his obit, I will pass it on to you.

All you Seaton folks...remember this in Miss Anderson's room..?

[03/17/20]   I think with the restaurants closed for awhile with this virus CRAP and we are in the age limits that are vulnerable to catch this CRAP, we will have to cancel this months class luncheon at Happy Joes. Everyone wash your hands and take care until we meet again hopefully in April.
