I attended the Class of 67 summer picnic last weekend. What a great time. The food and facilities were excellent. Sugar Camp in Pitcairn was a great venue for the event. The weather being near perfect just added to the day. I have come to know and learn about some classmates whose names I barely recognized from the yearbooks.
Peggy, Paula, Bonnie, Kathy, Marti and Diane do so much to make the events come off so well. Mike Cima also does so much work and puts such effort into these events, I'm just glad I went to high school with some many diligent, hard working but fun loving folks.

Fine feathered frenzy

This story - Chickens run wild in Philly high school - is a few months old, but shows that feathered fowls are still being released in public schools. (For those of you who may not know, you can read the story by clicking the "Chickens run wild" title.)

Would you believe that members of the Gateway Class of '67 are still talking about the turkey-in-the-library prank?

Tim Billings recounted the event and its aftermath for Gators at the informal Friday-night picnic-eve gathering at the Rivertown Pourhouse in Monroeville. His description of the mess created by the crazed turkey is similar to the Philadelphia incident as described in this news video.

What do you remember about the turkey incident?

I originally asked that you please click "comment" at the end of this item and tell us all about it. But the comment button didn't appear. So leave your comments on the next post. Thanks.

So, who's going to the picnic Saturday?

I figure Peggy and Mike Cima will be there because they are the leaders of our pack.

I've heard directly from Janet George Knight. She'll be there.

I know I'm going.

That makes four classmates and probably a couple of spouses.

I've heard rumors about who else will be there. But it's all unofficial.

I won't feel satisfied until I see the list of attendees posted on the official Gateway Senior High School Class of 1967 Web site, until the alleged attendees come forward and add their names to this tiny list or until I see them with my own eyes on Saturday.

So let me ask again. Who will be at the picnic?
