Love keeping in touch via email with friends from Winfield!

Did not renew our Chiefs tickets....we threatened to do it every year...because they are so disappointing each season!!!! We did it! Will go on occasion, and enjoy games from home!!!!

School Story:

There are way too many to list....but I guess I remember the pep club, dragging Main and sporting events. Loved the parties out 'in the country' at Connie's! Yeah, Randy P.....you took me home, after a homecoming, like at 9:00 pm....and then reported to Connie's after party without me....thanks alot!!!!! What went wrong!!!!???? I think I called the Winfield Police Dept. on you!!!! I also remember sneaking into the swimming pool with a bunch......swimming, and then being 'arrested' by the WPD...taken to headquarters..and having our parents pick us up! uh oh! Loved those hamburgers at the Burger Station....I always asked for a lid even though there was a huge sign saying they didn't provide them! (oh well...that's me) Skateboarding all the way from College St. to the fairgrounds....scars to prove the crashes! Square dancing on roller skates!! Roller skating at Peacock roller rink...and drinking a cold coke from a bottle filled with peanuts! yUm! I could go on and on.....Playing truth or dare at Marcia's with Lynn, Marcia, Marty,,????....in the camper outside their house on Broad. I'd better quit now, or I never will shut up!!!! Loved every minute of it!!! I'm proud to say I grew up in Winfield....a fine community, and it seems everyone I meet, knows someone from Winfield!

Kris and I bacame friends in 5th grade at Lowell. I was so darn envious of her pink Schwinn bicycle!!! I remember she had an imaginary friend, too. Don’t recall her name! We had fun growing up. Sort of lost track during college, but always fun seeing her at class reunions. We had lunch together when we were in Napa in 2012. Such fun reminiscing, and laughing. As we left the restaurant, Kris took photos of patron’s plates of food...never missing a beat. I last talked with her the day after super bowl of this year. She knew her football, and we had a great conversation. She was totally jazzed about planning the music for our reunion in September. She wanted so badly to stay away from 50’s-60’s music, and to go with jazz for the evening. “That was then, and this is now,” were her words. She wanted to know the itinerary, so he could plan her selections accordingly. She was also suggesting that we have a teacher memorial of some sort, which has never been done before. Kris was a free spirit, a talented musician, and a good friend. I was in total shock when I learned of her death.  RIP friend!
