  Martha says this is "one last time" to get together with our classmates......I HOPE that's not true.  It's always such a delight to see everyone.  During the last 50 yrs, I've lived in many places in the US., including 30 yrs in Massachusetts where we raised our 3 boys.  Have been in FL for ten years now.  Various types of work over the yrs., and hobbies such as long-distance bike riding, sailing, genealogy, travel  and home renovation.  This year I joined a group of volunteers who patrolled our waters during the BP oil crisis to locate, report and clean up oil.  This program was successful in keeping our shoreline safe, and won an international award for the effort.  My greatest joy is our 6 grandchildren.  (How in the world did I get old enough to have SIX grandchildren.........?)  I look forward to the reunion, and will try to keep my calendar free for that.  We don't see each other nearly enough...I think it was mine and Martha's idea after one reunion to have a "slumber party" in NYC a few months later.  Linda Spade and I were the only ones who actually stayed at Martha's apt., but the group of classmates that came for the pizza party that evening did a totally MARVELOUS job singing in her stairwell!!  I think the rest of you may have heard us.....

When Horace Greeley said, "Go West, young men, go West," I didn't realize he meant me--but I have now lived in the Rockies outside of Boulder for 20 years.  I love the hiking, peace and quiet, and clear sunny days.  And it's a joy that my kids now both live in Colorado. 
The other surprise: after driving down Quaker Rd and past the Q Meetinghouse all those years, I became a Quaker years ago.  HGHS's mascot was a Q and how people laugh at the irony of my being a cheerleader yelling "Go Quakers, fight, fight, fight!"

I self-published a book "And Suddenly They're Gone: What Parents Need to Know about the Empty Nest" in the early 90s and am now working on a book about the feminist movement in Louisville, KY, during the 70s.  Feminism has had a huge impact on my life.
My many traveling adventures include a month trekking in the Karakoram Mts, Pakistan, to see K-2, Alaska, Patagonia, and rafting the Grand Canyon.  In another lifetime I must have been a real mountaineer... And cross skydiving off my bucket list.

See you soon--your names are the ones I still remember the best!  (BTW what's a cocktail dress?)

My least favorite thing – talking about myself. 45 years with Fred (Greeley 62), four corporate moves, five states since Chappaqua (IL, KY, CA, PA, MA) and innumerable homes. We’ve remodeled, built from scratch, built on spec. We do the floor plans, oversee the build or do the rehab ourselves then plan & execute landscaping (thank you John Deere!) - get it just right and move on to the next adventure. In the Berkshires for twenty-five years, sold real estate for 15 of them. House number nine now on the market as we get ready to divide our lives – working on simplifying and downsizing in MA, we have picked up a re-do (surprise) in Naples, FL near our two kids and five grand kids. Even ski patrol Fred has begun sprouting snow bird feathers!! Just sold our power catamaran after five years of cruising from the Canadian side of Lake Ontario through the Oswego/Erie canals, down the Hudson, around NYC and up Long Island Sound to the CT River. Enjoyed travel to Shelter Island, Newport, Provincetown, Osterville and Martha’s Vineyard and points in-between from our home port in Old Saybrook, CT. Time now to move on to the next item on our Bucket List – ah, “retirement!”

Graduated from Carnegie Mellon University (then Carnegie Tech) in Pittsburgh.  I’ve been in Pittsburgh ever since.  Enjoyed a career in engineering until I retired in 2002.  Married Marian in 1969 and have two great kids:  Caroline, a stay-at-home mom/speech language pathologist who lives in Orlando, FL; and Eric, a senior systems engineer who lives up the street.  They each have three kids.  Marian and I spend much of our time with the grandkids--traveling to Orlando regularly and hanging out with our local grandkids.  Since Marian retired, we’ve done quite a bit of traveling, which we prefer to do on a cruise ship.  I enjoy my volunteer work at World Vision and cheering for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

June 10, 1943 calcurts@yahoo.com nurse/active license but presently retired calcurts.com Married 2 2012-07-10 14:42:10

Early this year, I was surprisingly contacted by members of the Herald Triblue Youth Forum who asked me to write the past 50 years in "condensed form". That worked out in a way that I'd like to share with you all.

Condensation
is an important and for me difficult requirement for good communication. Speaking of that, our firstborn son Dr. David Curtis (8/21/1967) is presently a Professor of Communication at Blackburn College and in the process of becoming an Autism Clinician. As a dyslectic working under a colleague with asperger's syndrome, David and his friend Jonathan are uniquely qualified to deal with this burgeoning situation. Our daughter, Virginia Curtis Kim (1/29/69,) is an Elementary Guidance Counselor. Her sons,  Robert Curtis Sung-Joong Kim 6/22/2007) and Mark Curtis Tae-Joong Kim (2/25/1998,) are an important part of our lives. Fortunately, we live near enough to spend time with both grandsons.  Virginia's husband Stephen Kim is a Math teacher and David's wife Susie is a Creative Writing teacher.
 
I "took a sabbatical" from college as a child of the '60's and went to live in a rural area.  I married Robert Curtis in 1965.
 In 1991, 30 years after the Forum experience, I finally decided to go to college myself and graduated as a Nurse in 1996. I practiced Dialysis Nursing for nine years.  In July 2005, Robert Curtis and I celebrated 40 years of marriage.  My father and my husband Bob's brother died that spring and our son-in-law Stephen had a nearly fatal accident shortly after our anniversary.  I retired from my nursing job and although I maintain an active license, I have not gone back to practice at this point.

So what does a family of teachers and being a proud grandparent and becoming a late life nurse have to do with my experience as US delegate to the Herald
Tribune Youth Forum in 1961?  I learned that every great person is an individual and every individual is a great person.  Parenting, teaching and healing start with individuals who, like pebbles cast into still water, form increasing circles of influence.  Each and all of these create the world we live in together.

2010 was a difficult year for Kit and Bob Curtis.  In April, I was in a potentially fatal automobile accident and after months in a wheelchair and continued therapy am thankful for the ability to walk which I took for granted before that. In May, Bob had a stroke and in November he had CABG ("Open Heart Surgery") to repair three of the blockages in his coronary artery. Two were 100% yet he had no symptoms except "tiredness" and it is indeed a miracle he did not suffer a heart attack. And so we are grateful and intentionally careful of the life we took for granted. The Forum experience was near the beginning of a journey which came to appreciate life and show concern for the difficulties inherent which require cooperative effort to confront and hopefully heal.  I look forward to continuing that journey and reconnect with so many of you who are still making a difference in the world.

That reconnection will hopefully be face to face with many of our HGHS class this fall.

It seems like only yesterday that I was disrupting Ms. Wakelee's kindergarten class at the Kipp Street School.

After college, followed by a few years in Vietnam, I started my career with Nestle which resulted in several relocations.  I married Jan in 1972 and we have three terrific kids (Aimee, Matt & Calley). They all make me laugh.  We moved to Westlake Village, CA from Darien, CT in 1992 after our Nestle USA headquarters regrouped to Southern California.  I retired from Nestle in 2002.

Most of my time is spent traveling, struggling to improve my golf game, and always "on-call" to help out our kids as their administrative assistant/go-fer.

I am, also, happy to report that my four brothers (Peter - Vero Beach FL, Bill - Charleston SC, Bob -Wadmalaw Island SC, and Paul - Pittsford NY) and their families are all doing well.

We had a very special HGHS class.  Hope to see everyone in October.
