= Update 27-May, 2017 = Memorial Weekend =

With a focus on honoring select GBE82 classmates, each REUNION is a time to remember what Jan, Ann, Paul and others meant in our lives. 

If my records are current, a total of 13 classmates have passed away, too young.

Jan Gerondale

Ann Borley

Todd Conrad

Peggy Renquin

Dennis DeBeck

Larry Engels

Liz Kessenich

Mark Robak

Tom Suski

Brian Timm

Dan Habeck (not pictured, information anyone?)

Paul Hardy

Bill Foster.            

In addition to a holiday of reflection for past military service members, Memorial Day thoughts include remembrance for all and respect for life worth living.

Our thoughts are also with those who influenced us and passed: parents, family, and friends with reverence for those who also served in armed services.

Have a story? Picture? Post it…

Next 80’s song or beer, take a moment to appreciate our deceased classmates!

Don and Todd

PS. Good tribue. IF a fan of U2 music, look & listen to “Still haven’t found what I’m looking for” Kimmel 5/23/17.  

= Update 23-April, 2017 =

April Wine? Sure.

Once thought only of music on the "Power Play" album/cassette, or a concert at the Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena, now it’s a good excuse for a glass.

As you enjoy spring, listen to music from our time and make plans to attend your GBE82@35 reunion.

  • When? August Fri-11 and Sat-12
  • Friday @ Lodge Kohler, Happy Hour ? Now, Fear the Deer! ...Packer v. Eagles Aug-10 @ 7pm!
  • Saturday: we’re looking for an inside & outside patio bar, casual place. 
  • Why? It's a time to re-meet people who share common backgrounds and experiences yet we’ve all grown since 1982. That's life! 

Find out what's new.

How about fashion?

Like the rest of us, Janice Conrad is a champion of spring fashions, especially if made from rayon!

Contact us with comments and ideas.


Don and Todd

PS: "Say it with me!" The Exclusive Company or maybe you could help us contact these bands to perform at GBE82@35...

  • Husker Du: Jeff and Dave Vandersteen have lead singer Bob Mould on speed dial!
  • RUSH: 2112 a collectors LP for Todd Winney and Dallas Long?
  • Foreigner: Juke Box Hero...liked by Becky Parkansky and Chris Otradovec (p.54 '82 Yearbook)?
  • Nitty Gritty Dirt Band...a one time favorite of Phil Rose and Kathy (Vandertie) Wautlet (former Webster/Allouez grade school neighbors)?
= Update 21-January, 2017 =

Hope all well with you/life as this is an update on Green Bay East’82 Reunion plans in development.

  • Date: Friday 11 August
  • Time: 5 – 10pm (no fees, no charge - just show up and have a beer/wine/cocktail with people you don't remember why you know them yet they are good people! Practice, "Do I know you?")
  • Location: Lodge Kohler @ 1950 S Ridge Rd, 54304 (still under construction, opening July'17)
  • Saturday 12 August: Stay tuned.

Plans in development: Todd Thomas and I are coordinating the GBE82 reunion this summer yet welcome volunteers.

More details for Friday, August 11?

Our first stop is the terrace and bar at LODGE Kohler for GBE’82 class reunion @ 35years.

The terrace is reserved (see photo) and the bar is located on the 5th floor of the hotel with views of Lambeau Field, newer home of the Packers who played at Green Bay East City Stadium from 1925 – 1956.

From the terrace, the main bar is steps away so we are covered rain or shine, whether Packer preseason game or just a night out.

Feel free to forward or contact us with questions.

  • Jay Hartstern is willing to lead a sunrise service on Sunday August 13 yet is awaiting requests.
  • We're still looking for anyone with contacts to book April Wine, RUSH, or Lynyrd Skynyrd (yep, you know how it's pronounced.)
  • Golf? Picnic? Parents/friends attending?

Updates to follow via email and Facebook: GBE82!Thanks,

Don and Todd

PS: For those interested, Steve Gay remains in stable health and like most, focused on the Packers this weekend!

= Update 5-August, 2016 =

When? Who? Planning? Reunion Weekend: GBE’82 @ 35 Years…Saturday 12-August, 2017

Classmate geographic location as of Aug-2016:

Although you are finally tan and fun summer days remain in 2016, summer next year includes our 35th reunion for the Green Bay East Class of 1982.

When GBE’82 @ 35?

August 12, 2017, is the Saturday planned for getting together.

Our 35th Reunion Weekend includes Friday night 11-Aug, Saturday 12-Aug and Saturday night to allow more to attend when possible.

Who wants in GBE’82 @ 35?

You can help decide how we celebrate.

More importantly, we’d like your input and want you to be involved.

Many different events should occur for GBE’82 people to get together, whether in GB, Hazelhurst-WI, Brooklyn, Nashville, Duncanville-TX, CO or CA (see below from the class website)!

What can you do?
Help recruit classmates to the GBE’82 Website @ or google “green bay east class of 1982.” 

Share this link!


You can join and invite others to our Facebook Group page, Green Bay East High Class of 1982.

What should we include for GBE’82 @ 35 Reunion Weekend?

You can help decide.

  • In 2012 we had drinks and laughs @ Jimmy Seas Pub on Friday and then Saturday we did it again @ Green Bay Distillery on the west side.
  • Options to consider for 2017 include the 2012 plan OR a park/picnic event OR a dinner event (GBE’81 had dinner @ Rock Garden this year), AND/OR many leisure options like golf or beach.
  • Other options/ideas? With some planning and a point person, a donation of time or funds could be a coordinated effort. The GBE community could benefit from our help!!
  • If interest exists, we may try to coordinate the reunion weekend with Green Bay Preble’82.
  • If interest exists, we may send an open invite to GBE’81 AND/OR GBE’83. Good people are good people!
  • Note: The more formal the plan like a dinner event with pre-pay expenses, the more people will be needed to lead the efforts in Green Bay.

Please connect whether by email, website or social media.

If you’d like to help in some way or stay informed along the way to Reunion Weekend, just ask about GBE’82 @ 35!

Final note GBE’82 @ 35!

Depending on responses, we’ll review to include as many people and ideas as possible.

If appropriate, a survey will be sent out to confirm the plan, including consensus on the GBE’82 @ 35 Years Reunion plan or even if a new reunion date is preferred.


Paul and Don

PS.  Our classmate Steve Gay remains in treatment for his leukemia yet continues to hold strong as a result of your positive support and well wishes.

= Update 5-June = Final Note = Have a good summer!  ... Details on Reunion 2017 coming this Fall!

When we pull together, we can make a difference as well as help each other through awareness, attitude and ideally a healthier outcome. Here is one way…

Run For Steve Thank You

Thank you to everyone who came out for the “Run for Steve” weekend May 21st and 22nd!

Although full details are listed below, here is a quick recap:

  • Almost $10,000 was raised for Steve’s medical expenses and care needs, past and the unpredictable future.
  • An additional $4,000 via GoFundMe was raised that will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Wisconsin in Steve’s name.
  • A huge pickup to Steve’s spirits occurred to assist his attitude to withstand the challenges of his care through all of your emails, texts and in-person contacts.
  • Unfortunately shortly after the weekend events, Steve was and remains hospitalized yet his care is stable and improving - please keep him in your healing thoughts. We'll keep tabs and share appropriate information as appropriate.

Recall that this started with a shared interest to not only raise funds but also show our support for Steve Gay who was diagnosed and receiving treatment for leukemia. Steve has touched so many of us in so many ways. Whether as classmates, co-workers, Meals on Wheels volunteers, friends, family or you may have just gotten to know him as the owner of the Big G and have had the pleasure of tailgating with Steve and the Big G at Lambeau or at one of his many road trips over the years, we are all grateful for having a giving friend like Steve.


So we give back to Steve and we celebrate the following for making the weekend’s events possible:  

You! … We’re all fans of Steve and supporting his road to health!

Questions? Contact any of us.

Proceeds from all activities will go to support both Steve’s medical expenses and also the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Wisconsin.


We hope that you will participate with us in person or in spirit on May 22nd for the Green Bay Marathon – see below for details and the weblink to the GoFundMe site for Steve Gay! (Note: running is optional)

Steve continues to do as well as expected given treatments for his leukemia and is getting energy from family and friends like you!

Thanks to everyone who has supported our “Run For Steve,” whether by signing up to run, inquiring about Steve, or donating to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Foundation in Steve’s honor.

Our California classmate Kevin Keehan will design the Run for Steve shirt as Tom List, Karen Kubale and others are forming teams to run too. Even Steve’s family intends to form a team. And Bob Rademacher will run the marathon, one of only 22 people who have run all 16 GB Marathons.

Others are making plans to join the Steve get together: Cara Ackerman Mack from Colorado will be in WI for a family event and connecting with us.

Given Steve’s out of pocket expenses as part of his care, John Nejedlo will coordinate a silent auction to occur the day before the run on Saturday 21-May. We’ll sell Steve’s Team shirts also.

As you imagine, Steve’s modesty and care for others comes through in our discussions. He suggests that we see if there are other classmates who may need support for critical healthcare…

How typical of Steve?

What can you do?

We hope that you can join us in Green Bay or create your own fitness - care event!

Email any of us with questions or comments.

May 21 Saturday @ 5pm - Gathering and Silent Auction

May 22 Sunday Post Marathon & Tailgate: Run @ 11am – to follow

  • Location:  Lambeau Field running starts @ 7am

Our friend and classmate, Steve Gay, has been diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia and although tired at times as a result, he is engaged in an active, aggressive treatment plan (mostly in Green Bay, Froedtert-Milwaukee and UW-Madison).

Many of us have been touched by cancer within our own families and circles of friends. While there is often a feeling of helplessness, a diagnosis can also galvanize people to pull together to support those challenged.

Several of us put our heads together to find some way to support Steve, as well as bring more awareness to the treatment of cancer.

One idea is participating in the Green Bay Marathon this coming spring. We signed up as a team (Running for Steve Team 1) with the hope that others will join our 50ish bodies as we run for Steve. Relay teams can include 2 to 5 participants and registration is currently wide open.

Not only will it be a way for us to put the remote down and exercise a bit more, but it will also allow us to show our support for Steve while raising awareness for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Steve has promised to have the Big G parked near the finish line of the Green Bay Marathon. Our hope is to “hydrate” with you the evening before and the afternoon after the run in or near the Lambeau parking lot. We think it will be fun to come together and reconnect, show Steve a lot of support as well as smile therapy, and raise some funds and awareness for blood-borne cancers.

We hope that you will participate with us.

Here’s how:

* Form a team for the Green Bay Marathon and run the relay with us on Sunday, May 22, 2016.

 Marathon Link:

*Show up at the Big G Saturday evening and/or Sunday during or after the marathon and support Steve.

*Contribute to the Go Fund Me account. The money raised will be presented to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in honor of Steve.

* Share Steve's GoFundMe link with your friends and family.

*Contact Steve and offer support and encouragement (see message center on this website or Facebook)

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any of us:

Rob Wilkinson

Dan Staddler

Chris Crain

Don O'Hearn

Updates will follow as the event date approaches.

Thank you for your support and hope to see you for the May 22nd event for Steve's health!


Finally, stay healthy and join the conversations related to you and your classmates of 1982!
