Class of 1972 until Sophomore year.

Very happy to recieve the invitation to the class reunion but unfortunately cannot attend this year. I would attend but have another trip to Iowa in a couple weeks to participate in RAGBAI.  I registered last year and it was postponed until this summer.  This is my first attempt and will welcome seeing other classmates that may be participating or cheering the RAGBRAI group.  .

Hello fellow Orabs! I was so looking forward to the reunion in 2020, and hoping to see a few classmates, but then the pandemic hit. Now I have to miss the "reset" to 2021, due to a stroke I suffered in late March. My wife Elene and I are still living in our home at Huxley. But I am currently at a skilled nursing rehabilitation facility in Ankeny, working to regain use of my left side. Pretty tough learning to walk again at 91...seemed easier when I was a toddler. Anyway, I would love to hear from anyone from the class of '49, or earlier or later years, who might remember who I am...and then I will try to remember who you are! Best wishes to all! My email address is Duane B. Heeren, formerly of Matlock  (with help from my son Lance)

Hello Janice, Mert Scholten here from Westerville, OH (NE Columbus suburb).  Juat got the card and trying to make some kind of contact.   Hope to make it next summer if at all possible.  I've been able to track a fair share of classmatesl over the years and record notes in my '58 yearbook. I can still recall alphabetically all the female members of the class and most of the guys although not in name order.  Have also been able to track the passing of many of them via Sheldon obits on KIWA radio and limited access to the Mail from time to time. Ironically, as I was sorting through some old things in a file this afternoon I ran across your sister Judy's obit which my brother had sent to me from the days when he still subscribed to the Sheldon Mail (where we both had worked while in high school.) Incidentally, I tried the web address you had on the card for the history of the reunions and got a "404" message indicating an improper or unknown address.  Can you clarify for me as to the correctness of the address?  I would love to read the account. Please add me to the Class of 58 list.  I would love to hear from fellow classmates. Thanks, Mert Scholten

I put this post up on FB this morning in reply to one by Shirley, and then decided the same message should be available on our Website.  My husband and I have not lived in Sheldon since 1962, but we have only missed one every five year all-school reunion since they started in the early 60's. So with all our friends and acquaintances who also attend these reunions, we see each other keep growing older by 5 years, and still we sometimes don't recognize each other. Makes absolutely no difference because when we "discover" each other once again we just have the best time together. I say this to you, and to all those others who wonder if they would be remembered at all, all it takes is one person to remember you and then the word spreads like wildfire and everyone you knew will be looking for you. These reunions are not a time for talking about who we are now but a time for remembering all those growing-up years together. If you are able to attend this 2020 Reunion, Shirley, please make yourself known to Karen Rider and me, Janice Warm. Janice Warm

Thanks for all the work you've done for the reunion.  I do intend to be there.  Hope the class of '54 shows up ready to relive great memories.  Looking forward to a great time!

Hi everyone, I do hope I can make it to the reunion, depends on some family health issues, but will certainly try. So enjoyed our 50th reunion! And thank you Jane Pierce Rowland for adding your comments, I went to the site earlier and couldn't quite figure it out, so your directions helped a lot. Look forward to hearing from more of our class.

What a great way to get people involved.  Your app is easy to use... so now Class of 1966 let's get your information added so that I am not the only one in the classmate section for our class!

Hello to all and Welcome to the Sheldon Orabs 2020 Reunion Website.  Many thanks to Karen for making it happen.  In the future months we plan to dribble out details of our Reunion planning.  We hope you keep checking into the Website to find out what we are up to at the time. For all you prior Reunion-Goers I can tell you this:  we researched hard and long at the Reunion details we could find going back as far as we could find documentation.  And GUESS WHAT?!  We discovered what we already knew...we attend these reunions to see all those folks we know, and to meet those we haven't met before, and together we Talk, and Talk, and Talk! Events have always been planned to provide a forum for getting together to talk (and eat in some cases.)   So... We get it!  We're with you!  We are planning for the same 'ol (with maybe a couple of new twists)! And for those Alums who have never joined in our All-School Reunions, we hope you will join us at least this one time.  You just might find out that you want to attend again next time.  Janice Koepp Warm
