Website Additions

Quick update: added 1980 and 1981 galleries on the photo page, updated a bunch of email addresses that I hadn’t had a chance to get to in a while, and added a thing of Google ads on the left side of the screen (it’ll help pay for the site). I tried to make it unobtrusive so it wouldn’t be annoying, but if anyone has a problem with it, let me know, and I’ll get rid of it.

Website Updates and Reunion Reminder

Couple of updates and things…I’ve started adding some of the photos that were sent to me by people over the course of last year (there’s a ton of them). I’ve color corrected and posted two years worth of stuff that was sent to me by David Stollberg. He went through and digitized a bunch of photos that were Bob Kruse’s. I’ve posted them as whole seperate photo galleries. They are linked to from the photos page, or you can click here to see them: 1978 Gallery, 1979 Gallery. Enjoy!

If you haven’t sent in your info for the reunion, you should get it sent in ASAP! The reunion committee needs to get the info to Holiday Inn by April 1st, so make your plans, book your flights, whatever you need to do.

Also, I’ve recently gotten a copy of Macromedia Dreamweaver 8 (a new web editing program). Previously, I had been using Dreamweaver 4, so this is a big step up. I’m in the process of teaching myself CSS, along with a lot of other cool things I can do with it. Keep checking back now and then for updates and changes to the site.

Reunion News

I’ve received news from the Neuleibs. Here’s the email:

“Wanted to let people know that Paul Hoogerwerf “Hoogie” just received a liver transplant last week. He is doing well. His address for cards is Paul Hoogerwerf, 1707 Ravine Park Lane, Aurora, IL 60504″

“Also, we are having another Reunion Committee meeting on March 4th. Reservations are arriving but we need to pick up the pace as we have to give the Holiday Inn an approximate number by APRIL 1. (no fooling) We have been doing internet searches and sending out info like crazy. Many alums are still not on our list. We are thinking of people everyday, some even in Geneseo, who are not listed. If everyone thinks of a couple people they marched with or traveled with (support staff) they should email us with names and we’ll do out best to find them. Wow, are we getting some good memorabilia. Bob Kruse just gave us 4 boxes of stuff including scrapbooks from many years between the late 70’s to early 90’s. Of course we have his slides for the audio/visual show. (We still need more pics from the Kewanee years for that too) We have an old Kewanee bass drum head and we have the Round Table Scroll. And of course DJ has a bunch of good stuff.”

Sounds good to me….by the way, it’s 143 days until the reunion (from the time of posting), so if you haven’t made travel plans and hotel arrangements, better get on that.

I hope to see you all there.
