feedback from class members

"... I really enjoyed the event. It allowed me to push the reset button and take my mind away from current stress, going back to a simpler time in our lives, and serving to put everything in perspective. Very refreshing. Looking forward to visiting with everyone again, next year perhaps." 

"I am truly sorry that I missed Saturday evening, but I had a great time on Friday with the golf and especially at the event at the Golden's.  It was good reconnecting with high school friends that I hadn't seen in many years and meeting some new people."

On Saturday night, after dinner, we remembered 62 Classmates, gone but not forgotten, with a special PPT at the 2022 Reunion. Accompanied by the Moody Blues, Simon & Garfunkel, The Beatles

Friday Garden Party Mixer - THANK YOU to Steve & Libby Golden. Beautiful setting, beautiful evening!  Steve & Libby surprised us with a very fun, live band.  And, El Jarro laid out a yummy spread, as they always do.   Perfect kick-off to a perfect weekend. 

Saturday was a magical evening downtown at old Ursuline campus.  Weather couldn’t have been more perfect.  And our wonderful DJ, Chris, filled the Chapel with nostalgic tunes. 

The only complaint was that the weekend passed too quickly - so many folks to catch up with, and so little time!

HUGE THANK YOU to Class Members for your very generous DONATIONS, all of which enabled, subsidized a sensational, successful weekend.

A thoughful sentiment from Shelby Baetz to the Class of 1971
   " ... I will have to toast the Class of 1971 from afar, but I will definitely raise a glass of sangria in its honor when I am on my vacation [in Spain and France.]
I wish everyone a marvelous time at the reunion! Best regards, Shelby"

A Note from Ms. Wise to the Class of 1971
Thank you so much for the invitation.  I will be out of country.  Trying to get as much travel in before I can’t do it any more.  Love all of you and so glad to see the good things you have accomplished.  

from Charles "Spook" Gordon, to fellow Class Officers and classmates
     I deeply regret that I will not be able to attend our 50th reunion.  For my birthday, before the announcement of the 50th reunion, I gave myself a birthday present of a trip to Cozumel with Laurie, our 3 daughters, 3 sons-in-law and 7 grandchildren. 
     I will truly miss seeing all of you ... Give everyone my best wishes and let them know that I regret not being able to attend.  I pray that we will all be in good health and able to attend our 60th.
     Although, I haven’t lived in San Antonio for many years and therefore, we don’t see each other often, please know that each of you holds a special place in my heart and I have such fond memories of each of you, as well as my other AHHS compadres.  The picture you sent of the Senior Class Officers is so special and brought back memories of that day and of that special time in our lives. It is so hard to believe that Mac, Tommy and Roy and the others are not here to celebrate. Upon seeing that picture, it prompted me to hold them and each of you in my prayers.  I will continue to do so.
Best wishes and I will be thinking of each of you at the Reunion while I sip my margarita(s) on the beach!   

From Annemarie in Santa Fe 
"I will miss the 50th but have fond memories of those years at AHHS.  Great classmates and teachers, fun road trips for debate competition, and tennis on the weekends. Since moving to Santa Fe, NM a decade ago, friends and family arrive often to share a glass of wine and conversation on the back portal. If you pass this way, it would be a joy to reconnect and catch up. Cheers to you and yours!" - Annemarie Marek
