Post 45th reunion news:

From the your reunion committee:

The night of the reunion we brought in $1,100.  This was mostly from the auction and from donations.  We have enough money in the bank for 5 years of scholarships of $500 each year for dollars for scholars (with a comfortable working capital for the 50th reunion).  The committee says thank you, thank you!

From Don Daake:

HI Jim

After the reunion I wrote a column about connecting and shared some of my Charles City experiences- sent it to the CC  Press paper- they published at least part of it, but I have not seen the actual article- anyway- thought some of our classmates might be interested. It is attached and also there is a direct link to the blog version below.


I wonder if any of our teachers are alive- if so I would like to do a little research and do a class of 1969 tribute and thank you that we could send to them.  What do you?


It was first published in the Kankakee Daily Journal on August- circulation 23,000 – potential readership about 50,000
Thanks Don!

If you are involved with the medical professions, senior care or music, I strongly suggest seeing the limited distribution movie: Alive Inside

Please contact Marilyn Buttjer 
at anytime with questions/donations for Dollars for Scholars.
