It"s to see classmates who were a big part of who we are today?

Click on Know Your Classmate to see how we looked at 50th Reunion

Many have passed away since


Have you ever wondered about a classmate that graduated and what they did after graduation.  Many go on with their life and we never here about them.  Then after many many years we learn from a friend, classmate, etc. about what they accomplished in their life.  Then you say I (should have or wished) I had known that. Many classmates have made a differnce some in a quiet and way unassuming way.

Stay tuned

Bob Phelps just sent the following links.

After looking at them they bring back so many memories.  I lived in downtown Moline from 1944 to 1955 before moving to Molette during my 9th grade year.  Bob: I lived only one block from your family's diner.  Best hamburgers I ever tasted.  I went to Irving Grade school and know they have a site on Facebook. There maybe more and will investIgate.  I recommend all 1958 classmates to visit these sites.

Thanks Bob for the Information..
