An Obituary of Note

On Saturday, August 15, Julian Bond died. He was the husband of our classmate Pamela Horowitz, and she was married to him for 24 years.

He was a great leader who was known for anti-VietNam protests, for the civil rights movement, and more recently for his stand on equal rights.  

Here's Pam's address if you wish to send condolences:
Pamela Horowitz
5435 41st Pl NW
Washington, DC  20015

Saturday Night, September 6, 2014

6:00 pm – Midnight

We entered Washburn in 1961 in button-down shirts and knee ticklers, wingtips and flats, but before long we changed to blue jeans, sandals and beads. We wore crew cuts and bubbles as the decade began, but the Beatles changed everything and before long hair was hanging down to our shoulders.

We graduated fifty years ago this past June. Now it's time for a party, and we’re looking forward to seeing as many WHS grads as possible.

We reserved the Fort Snelling Officers’ Club near the MSP Airport for a fun, casual and delicious chance to catch up with our classmates. Leave your suits and sportcoats at home and be comfortable. Plans include a buffet, cash bar, music from our past for dancing and listening, and plenty of time to kick back and get reacquainted.

We worked hard to keep expenses to a minimum. Your cost: $64.00 per person for our Saturday Night event.  If you plan to come on Saturday, pay for your ticket online on the "Buy Tickets" page before you leave home, or pay with cash or a check at the door.

Directions to the Officers' Club  Take the Post Road exit near the Airport and turn East toward the river.
Watch for the signs.  There's a map and address on the "Detaills of Events" page.

All classmates are invited to walk through Washburn at 12:30 pm on Saturday.  Park in the Staff Parking Lot on 50th Street and enter through Door 10.  Look for John Tietz and Tom Crouch.
