I, too, just cannot believe almost 50 years have gone by!  It'll be so fun to see everyone at the reunion!  I'd better get ready and "work out" like crazy so I can look just like I did in '61 !  Just kidding!  It will be so much fun!

I'm retired from a career in the financial services industry, part of that in regulatory compliance over investment products.  Not as profitable as selling financial instruments and far less popular with marketing departments, but it was most enlightening.
 
My son Chad returned to the U.S. (San Jose) in March 2014 after working in Asia for 11 years.  He continues to work with eBay on International business issues but at least finally lives on the same continent with only a two-hour time difference.  His two children (my grandchildren) live in Minnetonka.

My fiancée, Ron, and I enjoyed traveling both in the U.S. and in other countries taking full advantage of our ‘retirement’ status to take many trips over our 16 years together.  Sadly, Ron lost his battle with cancer a year after the 50th reunion.  So, my focus now is on his advice to:  “Enjoy your trip (through life) and everything about it.  ENJOY the moment.”

Taking that sage advice into account, I’ve moved on to working through the rest of my bucket list.  There are so many places to see and things to do that checking them all off is quite the challenge, but lots of fun.

�I taught English in Iowa and St. Louis Park, MN, for nine years. Because teaching jobs were increasingly hard to find, I went to law school at the U of M from 1975-78. I clerked for a judge for a year and worked at a continuing legal education company for a year. In 1980 I went back to teaching, this time at Osseo Senior High School. I retired from OSH in 2005, but I taught there part-time for the 2008-09 school year. I loved teaching.
��I belong to three books clubs. I have season tickets to the Guthrie, Pen Pals (an author series), and the Hopkins Center for the Arts. I sing in the Gethsemane Senior Choir and am a member of the Social Ministry Team
��I exercise regularly (walking, biking, gardening, yoga) and my health is good. I travel as much as I can afford to. Over the years, I have exchanged houses, cats, and cars with a couple from Stonesfield, England. This last January I spent two weeks in Panama, again staying in homes as opposed to hotels.�
��My dad, American history teacher Don Holcher, lived to be almost 91. He was sharp until the end.
��This year, one of my main projects is helping out with the reunion committee. I hope to see most of you there.

I don't know why it took me so long to sign in.  It is fun to read about everyone and I share many of the things that have been said: great high school experience, some great teachers, friendly folks.  I'm looking forward to the reunion and catching up.  I live in a land coop with 5 other families on a hilltop in Vermont.  I rarely run into Minnesotans there but visit family in the Twin Cities to get a hit of MN.
