Lane I love the picture from the 17 Estes Park reunion of you on the dock with your arm around me. Looks like a good time was had!

Thanks Lane for all the pictures and funnies that keep us connected. Though I did not graduate from Heidelberg HS, I went there longer than any other school so I feel like it is "my school." I came to Germany on the USS Rose in early January of 1963 with Rick Kettler and his family. I went to see his Mom and Dad after the horrible accident that took his life and those of the other boys in July of that year. Most of my memories from H-berg are happy ones- lighting of the castle, prom at the castle, Freddies, bier, but most of all lots of great people. Candice Vorhies, Judith Novick, and Karen Arnold became lifelong friends. However, I love staying in contact with other classmates and making new friends. Thanks Lane for all the work you put into keeping it going. Have not made it to an Estes Park reunion yet, but it is on my bucket list!

Always great memories, but as usual, my name is spelled wrong in most photos. It's a "z" not an "s" in my name. But, it's happened all my life. Keep up the good word Ellis!

Wow, I know this will be a shot in the dark, but I'll try anyway. My dad was stationed in Heidelberg between 1966-69. I attended the 1st grade at the school and I am desperately trying to locate my first grade teacher. Her name was Alice Edgerly from St. Cloud, Minnesota. Is there any teacher alumni information that is available for access. I've got pictures of when I was in the first grade and she's in the one we all took as a class group. My brother graduated in '68 and played on the football team as a fullback under Coach Craig. Ringing any bells here?

Great posts Lane, thank you for all your hard work. I am looking for Peggy Bryant who graduated in 66. Would love to hear from her. I graduated in 65. Married the soldier I went to the prom with. Next year we will have been married 49 years. We have three children, 18 grandchildren and one on the way, and seven great grandchildren with one on the way. Sure do miss those school days-------my parents are rolling over in their graves hearing that!

Ahhh, memory lane! I was there in 1964/1965 but graduated stateside in 1970. So many firsts...on the road to wisdom...above all there was romance...introduced by the best girls in the world. Funny, I cant remember a single guy!

Lane--We have never met but do share a bond. I loved my time in Heidelberg. I was only at Heidelberg High for my senior year. I did stay on long after my dad rotated out. I met my husband of 37 years -- which was, of course, the best thing that happened to me in Heidelberg. I so appreciate all you are doing to keep us 60's oldies but goodies informed and in touch!!!!

My memories of Heidelberg are great! Anyone hear anything from Mac Newton or Penny Fletcher? I attended school in Heidelberg in 1964/65; did my senior year outside of Ft. Meade, Md. Married to Jeff Smith (class of '66); we have a son, Justin, 23, and a daughter Katie, 30. Have lived in Savannah, GA since 1992.

Lane, Greetings to you on this Memorial Day! Remember all those who gave their lives so we could live ours in freedom even if we do have the 20 year plague of successive bad GOP's making bad decisions for the USA. Your photo page with that beautiful shot of Heidelberg brings back great memories and a certain amount of sadness of a time that is now just that in fact, a memory. Nevetheless I look forward to the reunion in 2011 and many thanks for you keeping us all connected, I salute you! I lived in Heidelberg from 1959-1967, a magical 8 years! And somehow "Ich hat mein hartz in Heidelberg verloren"! Excuse any wrong spelling! Jawohl!

Hi Lane. I love your HHS web site. It's always so wonderful to see familiar names, read about similar experiences and the fantastic fun we had while in Heidelberg. Also making new friends through various reunions and gatherings, such as your Estes Park Reunion that I hope one day to be able to attend. Sending Texas sized hugs and peace always, Roo.

I attended 7th grade there back 1964. I rode the bus from Patrick Henry Village. A lot of the time, I would run into the cafeteria after school and buy an ice cream bar to eat on the bus ride home.

Lane, thanks for including me and keeping this going over so many years. Now that I retired from the service (1 Aug 2008), I am making time for old memories and friends. I plan on attending in 2009 and, of course, 2011 in Heidelberg. Believe I am the last of us to retire from military service of the 60's graduating years...knew it was time. Those coming to Berlin are always welcome to stop by, I always have a cold brew and....Berlin is a great city to visit, but, like all of us, Heidelberg has a special place... even if the school closes....we should keep the memory alive and continue to meet there every-so-often. God bless you all and keep you safe. don z

I just now got around to registering, but I, too, appreciate all the time and effort you put into this, Lane. I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone in 2011! My mother flew over here last September for my 60th birthday and we drove down to Heidelberg for a trip down memory lane. What an adventure that turned out to be! My mother has a lifetime ID with commissary and PX privileges and offered to take me "shopping" for my birthday. The commissary is now in Patrick Henry Village, but you can't get in there unless you're stationed there. We finally made it in after thorough screening (reminiscent of entering into East Germany in the olden days) including MP escort (twice!). I have the feeling that someone might have to rent the Castle or a very large riverboat for the reunion in 2011 - Mark Twain and Patrick Henry seem pretty much off limits to us former Army brats now. Anyway, the adventurous day at Patrick Henry Village was the highlight of my mother's visit here. But it's too bad the world isn't as free and easy as it was (or seemed to be) back in the 60's in Heidelberg.

Hey Lane, thanks for 'accidentally' finding me on Facebook. There are no accidents. I have such great memories of Heidelberg. After my freshman/sophomore year my dad was stationed in Nurnberg where I did my sophomore/junior year before being transfered yet again to Columbia, S.C. Talk about culture shock. Thanks for finding me.

Lane, after all these years.......never thought this group would have kept in touch. You found me around 2000, was not aware of all the reunions, etc. You've done a GREAT job of keeping us informed and aware. Sad that Heidelberg won't be the same after 2011, but then nothing really is the same now., nor has been for quite a while. At least we have the memories, I hope people keep the photographs coming. They are truly a trip down memory lane, and in those photos, we're "forever young".
