Thanks Maxine Riedel (Barrows)

Maxine Riedel (Barrows) recently sent me a photo of the 20th Class Reunion, which you may now find on the Through the Years tab.  See if you can find yourself in the crowd.  Thanks, Maxine.  If any of you have pictures from past reunions or photos taken during our class years, please email them to me ( , or if they are not in digital format, call me at 309-751-7776 and I'll arrange to have them digitized.

And a Word of Thanks

It is not an easy task to keep up with the status of 600+ classmates, and to find content for this website.  So I'd like to tke a moment to thank a few of you who have provided me information and leads to other classmates.  A special thanks to: Maxine Riedel, Terry (and his lovely wife Jane) Jackson, Dave Duve, Dave Uthe, Nancy Nadermann (Byrd), Scott Ferris and Vicki Jansen (Kunkle).  As I say, the more help I get, the more successful (and interesting) this site will be.  THANKS to all who have helped.

The Rennovation Update

The rennovation is taking shape and most of the updates are being used by students.  And from what I have seen, it is incredible.  Take a look on this YouTube video.  If you want to keep up to date, follow @SeniorRamFam on Twitter, or like their Facebook page.  And don't forget to keep up with alumni news on the Alumni Facebook page.

And Just One More Thing

Congratulations to Ron Dick and Dennis Bemboom (and Tom Paradisio, Wahlert Class of 1968) and the rest of Hampton Road for their recent induction into the Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of fame!  Well deserved.

No new information on the Reunion.  We'll be meeting soon, and letting you know what is going on.  Meanwhile pass the information about the date along to our classmates.
