So now that we know the girl was Colleen O'Donnel, where is she and what happened to her?

            Calling all those who went to Armatage Elementary School and wish to relive that experience!  The school has kindly consented to let us tour the school on Friday, August 26, 2016, at 1:00 PM.  We are to buzz in at Door Number 5 by the flagpole and should gather there shortly before 1:00 in order to enter as a group.  Classes start on the following Monday, so we will not be able to enter classrooms because the teachers will be preparing. 
            This is a marvelous opportunity to visit those spaces that will bring back memories associated with particular classrooms and teachers, memories that are now all too frequently tending to slip-slide away.  After the indoor tour, many of us will probably want to walk around the outside of the building, since we spent huge segments of our lives on the playground spaces, too.
            Partners are welcome to join us, and if you have siblings who also went to Armatage, please invite them.

My wife and I lived in Coon Rapids until sixteen months ago. We decided that we just couldn't take the winters anymore and since we are both retired decided to move to Southwestern Florida. We are now on a permanet vacation here. We live in Lehigh Acres just East of Fort Myers. Love the weather here and being able to go to the beach in the middle of the winter which sure beats driving on snow covered icey roads.

I just read Tom Guthrie's invite to tour Robert Fulton School and wanted to add a few memories about this building...I remember the girl's bathrooms were painted a sickly green color that only a school district or the military would ever use.  The stalls were very short and I imagined using the bathroom as a stable for very small horses.  We had bomb raid drills that sent us into the hallways to kneel down and cover our heads with our hands...I was so scared...I still remember the fear those sirens invoked.  On the second floor, in front of the principal's office (that was Mrs. Fern Hedenstrom), there were glass display cases with stuffed and mounted birds from the Audubon Society.  Across the hall from those cases were small windows that looked down into a huge room that was used for kindergarten.  In 4th grade, I broke my leg horseback riding.  The 1st week back in class, there was a fire drill and Tom Guthrie helped me hobble down 3 flights of stairs, only to be told by Mrs. Brandt, "you didn't have to come down!"  I'll be there to relive the memories...

Hey, boys and girls! Looking for an activity that'll burn off some of those excess calories you're likely to ingest during the weekend's festivities? I know I am. How about a Friday morning bike ride? (Weather permitting, of course.) Details tbd, but the basic idea would be to meet somewhere in the 'hood at 10-ish or so and end maybe a couple hours later -- i.e., right around beer o'clock. If you're up for such an activity, contact me at

Barbara Richter also remembers a girl in our class who had a monkey.  But she can't remember her name.  Could this girl please come forward as well.  Otherwise, I will think that Barbara is making a whole lot of stuff up.  And she's a judge.

Could the person that I drove to school the last year or two of high school please step forward.   I can't remember your name and Jeanne Krause thinks I am making you up.  You cut part of a finger on a meat slicer.

It's difficult to write about the past years because it all so, I don't know.  Let's see.  After graduating southwest I went to the University of Minnesota, became a hippy, graduated with an English degree and then moved to Seattle, WA , and then eventually to an island near Seattle.  Then, after lots of adventures I went back to college at the University of Washington and got a degree in landscape architecture.  During that time I met my first husband, who was in architecture school at the same time as me.  We eventually got married.  He was from Pakistan.  We had a nice life together and eventually decided to move to New York City.  Then we got divorced.  
I lived in New York City, actually I still have my apartment there and I am writing this note from there now.  But now I live in Philadelphia where I am a working artist...fulfilling a lifelong dream of not making any money.  Before that I was lucky enough to get a Loeb Fellowship at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard.  After that people in NYC thought I was smart so I had a series of quite high profile jobs including working at the United Nations Environment Programme and also serving as the Executive Director of the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, the New York Foundation for Architecture and the New York Green Building Council.  
At some point, a number of years ago I got married again to a man who hates New York.  So that's where I am now, and he is in Philadelphia, where I will return in a day or two.  We have a beautiful dashund named Arlo and lots of family and friends.  I look forward to seeing you all.

I live in the St. Paul suburb of Maplewood, and must confess to having abandoned Minneapolis citizenship 30 years ago. I can't be sure, but it seems as if most of our class either lives in Minneapolis, or somewhere far flung (see Philip Bergstrom), and I'm pretty lonely over here in the "other" city. I'm happily married, happily retired (mostly) and have one son who is 23 and lives in Portland, OR.  I worked as a psychologist doing psychotherapy for 35 years and had my own private practice.  In retirement I have spread my wings and am doing some interior and garden design (MUCH less stressful). I've been to all of the reunions since the 25th, and have found them to be wonderful events.  I am also in touch with a number of women from our class who call themselves the "Southwest Sistas" and have greatly enjoyed the opportunity to connect with old friends who are exactly my age.  I hope to see lots of you at our 50th!

Enjoying 46 years of wedded bliss to Mark Francis (class of '66 too)!  Have three children and four grandsons. Still working parttime teaching in Arizona. We live in Phoenix and love the hot weather- good for the creaky joints! I have kept up with several of you classmates and especially Jeff and Kris (Anderson) Moore. We love to travel and spend time in San Diego each summer where we see Holly Hazan (Green). We also spend many hours watching our grandsons play every sport on earth!  It will be great to see everyone in August.
