Even if access is clear around the venue, what about getting there from your home? Sorry to miss it but it’s too much of a risk.

Well most of you know me from this forum if nothing else so you know I have to throw in my 2 cents on the 69 reunion.....

It is a shame after all the planning that has gone into this reunion that the storm had to hit and rain for a week. Also raining there today......A reunion is important BUT not as imprtant as your life!!! PLEASE use caution if you plan on going.

It is true the Venues may be clear around them but to get to them may not be. They may also be telling you that so they get you there. ALSO you don't know what it may do once you get there. For example: Yesterday my sister Shirley left her house at 9 am to go 7 miles to her doctor for her broken foot thearpy which took about 30-40 minutes for the treatment. She got back home at 5:31 PM due to it raining while at the doctor.....She tried several routes and could not get through, she spent most of the day sitting at the Sear parking lot on Shepherd and Crosstimbers. She even called her road side service for a wrecker to take her and her car home (her car was running though) They told her they would send a wrecker BUT it would be a 6 hour wait  for them. She booked not knowing what else to do. Then she and I started calling around to see what roads were passable she (thank the LORD) made it home. SO my point is we never know from one minute to the next what may happen with this storm. I am sitting here in Lovelady with rain pourind down also due to the storm.

If you go tonight be careful...Maybe skip tonight and try for tomorrow....Houston is under a flash flood watch untll 7PM tonight that should tell you something right there!!

What ever you choose to do BE SAFE!! 

Judy

~ Thank you to all whom took the time to repy ~

I agree this should have been resceduled due to the storm ~

Tuesday, it took me from 4pm to 8pm to go from KEMAH

Hwy 146 & 518 to my home in Memorial.

Staying off the freeways, which were impassable, due to high water and collisions betwen vehicles.

It was like flying inside a light bulb.

I have flown in bad weather, but that white knukle drive home last Tuesday, topped even the worst.

At least the other team, in the pointy hats, were not shooting at me this time.

STAY SAFE, STAY ALIVE, STAY HOME.

After dark, those of you not farmiiar with the area, will experiance difficulty navigating the roadways.

BE AWARE OF ANY HIGH WATER.

Perhaps, we should all learn a little lesson from this.

Thanks/

CGE III

It was nice to see many of our friends from the classes of 1969 and others for the first part of our reunion. I hope to see many more tomorrow at the get together tomorrow night.

Class of ‘69 kicked off their 50th Reunion in fine style last night.  Though it was rainy upon arrival, it didn’t dampen the Tiger spirit.  Great times reuniting with classmates and looking forward to this evening:  Good food, dancing to the Fab Five, reminiscing and catching up on 50 years!

Margaret Jackson (Graeff) (1969)

Thank you to everyone who came to the Class of 1969 Meet and Greet last night at the hotel. We had approximately 80 - 100 people there. The hotel was so nice to us and the food was great. I had such a great time seeing everyone and renewing old friendships.  

I have seen that several people are concerned about flood waters.  I drove from downtown Houston yesterday all the way to Sam Houston Parkway and then drove to the venue and then to the hotel and never saw even a puddle of water.  Bruce Whitten, who was a first responder for many years, also drove the route between the venue and the hotel and there are no floodwaters.  Hope to see everyone tonight!

I will add that we came in from Montgomery through Conroe to pick someone up and did not see any high water.

Charles Ellis (1969)

Funny, no one else went through the downpour, @ Sam Houston Tollway & I-45 @ 7pm last night.

It was so bad I turned back. Looking farther east, it only got blacker.......

A big dip on the feeder @ the Tollway & I-45 fills quickly with water every storm.

IF it stays clear & dry, it may be doable today.

Why were these remote venues selected anyway?

A more central location, would have been better for all.

Thanks/

Last night at the Class of 69 50 year reunion was a BLAST.  Thank you to all who planned such a great night.

Vicki Jurchak (Zajicek) (1969)

To all the committee members who planned last night's 50th Sam Houston Reunion.....you did an OUTSTANDING job!! The weather was great and the venue was big and spacious. Loved the live band. Don't get to have live bands too much anymore. It was good to see so many familiar faces and just seeing those faces brought back so many wonderful memories. It was an awesome evening!

My class ring. SHHS 1969, was stolen in 2000 in Auburn, Al. My initials inside are PGA. The stone was diamond colored with SH engraved in the stone. If it is ever located, probably pawned, would like to know.

9/23/19 Dear Sam Houston Tigers of 1969, Wow, so it has been 50 years?? I had originally thought about being at your reunion but to be honest I forgot. Anyway, a salute to all you faithful Tigers and I am glad you had a good time. I taught science at Sam from '67-'73 and met my future wife there in '71, so Sam has always meant a great deal to me. I know some of you at the reunion were in my class. Not that I would have recognized you...too much water under the bridge (literally). My wife was a computer clerk in '71 for Dorthy Doreck and Mr. Wilbanks when we met. We now live in Spring. Wishing the class of '69 and all of Sam Houston's great students continued blessings from God.

Your  Old Faculty Member, Albert (Don) Henderson

Thanks to all the committee members for the hard work to make the 50th reunion of the class of "69 a huge success. As our numbers dwindle, hopfully we may consider a 55th reunion. GO TIGERS !!

Carol A Pfeffer (Patterson) (1969)

Gloria Pilcik, Vicky Jurchak and all the others who attended one or both nights of Class of ‘69 50th Reunion, seeing you all was fun and FABulous!  I only wish I could have talked with you more.   We still ROCK!  Hoping for another one in a few years!


09/23/19 09:34 PM #4483    

Margaret Jackson (Graeff) (1969)

Thanks so much to everyone who came on either Friday night to the Meet and Greet and/or the 50th Reunion of the Class of 69 on Saturday night.  It was so much fun seeing everyone.  It brought back so many good memories.  It is sad that so many of our classmates have passed on and I was glad that they were remembered with a moment of silence.  Sam Lopez did a great job as the Master of Ceremonies and I can't say enough about the music from The Fab 5.  I had so many people tell me how much they enjoyed the band.

I also wanted to acknowledge Jerry Walthall as a sponsor of the food at the Meet and Greet.  I thought the food was great and just wanted to let everyone know that Jerry (Class of 68) helped me in paying for the food.

I am hoping that there will be another reunion sometime in the future.  Maybe a 55th?  I heard several people at the Meet and Greet saying they would like to see a 55th.  If that should happen and I am still around, I would certainly be up for it.  

Again, it was so nice seeing everyone.  I know I didn't get a chance to talk to everyone that was there, but the ones I did get a chance to visit with, all I can say is that it was wonderful to see you again and hope to see you again real soon.

Reminder that today at 6pm is the FREE band in the park at Market Street.  It is from 6 to 8:30 with a break at 7.  Bring your icechest/ liquor/food and lawn chair or purchase food at one of the restaurants surrounding the park.  REALLY GREAT BAND TONIGHT CALLED CHINATOWN....Classic Rock.  Listen to them on Utube.

At 6 there is already shade in parts of the park from the buildings surrounding it and by 6:30-6:45 its pretty much all shaded.  My husband and I will be there and Donny McGinty......we are the regulars.  Hope to see some new faces.  Parking is free in the garage or on the street.

I am asking if the November fifth Friday luncheon will be held?  It is the day after Thanksgiving Thursday.  If anyone knows about it please let me know.  I have some friends who are intersted also.  I can let them know one way or the other.  I am thinking that we may suffering from turkeyitus on that Friday.

Thank you,

MIchial Lawrence

Thank you Rita.  I will pass this on to Frank Barron.  We were wondering about the luncheon.  I may have to waddle in to the cafe, but I will be there.

Nancy Harantcavage (1969)

Do y'all remember the Burbank Elementary paper drives we use to have in late 50's and early 60's?  Does anyone remember why we did them?

Cheryl Crumpler (1964)

Nancy, I think it was to raise funds for the PTA. But I wouldn’t bet a lot of money on that answer.
