CL Tigers Hats Off To You!!!  The Class of 1970 “50th High School Reunion” (plus 2) was a “ROARING” success!  In a weekend arrayed in orange and black, over 60 classmates commemorated our time together during high school.

At 4:00 p.m on Friday afternoon, the annual Homecoming parade was held in downtown Crystal Lake.  It was a bit chilly, but Williams Street was beautifully decorated for the annual Johnny Appleseed Fall Festival.  The football team, the various clubs, the faculty, the Queen candidates, and the cheer squads strolled down the street lead by the legendary Tiger Marching Band.  It was a great way to start the weekend.

This year’s Homecoming opponent was Dundee Crown.  Reminiscent of our “Humpty Dundee Took a Great Fall” float, the Tigers again defeated the Chargers in front of a capacity crowd.  As the fight song was played, a sea of memories came flooding back.  What fun we had back then.

The Goal Line Bar and Grill was the gathering place for our Friday night get together.  We had the upstairs area to ourselves to mingle and talk.  Of course, our name tags were in a “slightly” larger font and being attached to a lanyard was a huge help. Among the various adult beverages, pizza was served thanks to the generosity of one our classmates.  The highlight of the evening was the unveiling of a photo of the presentation of our new class picture to be hung at the high school. As you will recall our original class picture was destroyed and recreating it seemed like an impossible task.  However, through the tremendous time and effort of classmate Jed Wing, he designed and produced a replica of our senior class picture for display in the hallway of the high school along with the other graduating classes!  The crowd gave a rousing and well-deserved round of applause in recognition of Jed’s tremendous accomplishment.  Hat’s off to Jed!  Also, Hat's off to one of our classmates who so generously made a donation to cover the matting, framing and miscellaneous costs.

At 10:00 a.m. Saturday morning, about 20 classmates met at the Fieldhouse to begin a tour of the high school.  Keith Levin, the 23rd Director of Bands, conducted an information packed and entertaining tour of the high school.  We were transported back in time and again, the memories came roaring back.  The hallways, the classes, the teachers, the pep assemblies, the dances, the plays, the music, the lunchroom, the games all came alive again.

To say that the high school interior is impressive is an understatement.  It is truly SPECTULAR.  Hat’s off to District #155 and Central High School. We can all feel so very proud to be part of the history of this tremendous institution.

On Saturday evening, we gathered at the Holiday Inn for our informal get together.  Among splendid orange and black decorations, various mementos and artifacts from high school and previous reunions were displayed.  Chief among the displays was the Class Memorial Picture in recognition of our classmates who have passed away.  The picture was designed and produced by classmate, Chuck Schaefer. Thank you, Chuck for a great job!

Again, thanks to the generous donation of one of our classmates, an open bar proceeded dinner while a DJ played music from the 60’s and 70’s. Classmate Sue Schneider Voegele wrote and recorded the song “September In The Rain”, especially for the reunion, Hat’s off to Sue for a great job!

The people who travelled a great distance were recognized.  Jan Tomaszewski Magnolia from Maryland, Bernard and Tracy Tegtmeier from California, Bob and Mary Anne Lachenmaier from Arizona, Eileen Hurley from Florida, Steve Renne from Florida, Claire Fruin Ross from New Hampshire, Debra Rhodes Walker from Florida, Jim and John Sedgeley from Colorado, Orv Bobek from Texas, Carol Covey Beard and husband Miles Beard from Pennsylvania, Billie Jean Baldwin from Florida, George “Corky” Plews from Indiana and Pat Egan Faellaci and her husband John Faellaci from Michigan.  Hats off to all of you!  You all are true Tigers!

As the evening concluded, good-byes were said, and plans began for our next reunion.  To those classmates who could not attend, you were definitely missed.  We missed your stories, we missed your anecdotes, we missed your ideas!  We just plain missed YOU!  Please consider coming to the next event.  You will not regret it!

Finally, a big Hat’s off to the Committee.  Many hours were spent to make the reunion the success it was.  You are a dedicated group and a large part of why our class was so memorable.  This could not have happened without you!
