Greetings Fellow Huskies,
Notes from Zoom Meeting # 2 on 2/18/21
- 13 Huskies attended and 2 Huskies reported they could not attend.
- The poll result was 13 to 6 to have the reunion in 2021 not 2022. That fixes the dates as August 13 – 15, 2021.
A discussion on the venue ensued. I was requested to get information on the “Barn” down the hill from our previous venue. [Directly down the hill from the previous venue (Flagstaff/Flanders) is St Paul’s Church. It is not a park venue. Nearby is the Parish Hill venue. It is not air conditioned, seats about the same as Flagstaff/Flanders, has slightly less parking, has a kitchen, and costs $80 more.]
It was decided to not invite other classes to join our reunions.
The next topic discussed was food. North Park has a policy to allow Food trucks if they follow North Park rules. I have received several leads from attendees on both Food Trucks and Caterers. If someone wants to chair a sub-committee on Food, I will forward what I have. Otherwise, I will compile it and other material and send it out for discussion at our next Zoom meeting. [That date/time has not yet been set.]
Jim Dembowski is working to clean up our email lists.
Everyone was asked to contact other classmates and get them to register at our website. The CORRECT website is: www.shalerhighschool.com
I have been asked by Allegheny County to assist at the COVID vaccination site in Castle Shannon. So, my “free” time has been drastically reduced. It should end in the next week or so. If I don’t respond quickly, you now know why.
Classmates on the Move!

- Winner of the Harley DavidsonWinner of the Harley DavidsonMarte Yerkins won the 2002 Harley Davidson XL 883R Sportster, (supplied by Maisto ) by correctly identifying the Shaler classmates that were members of the band Optical Illusion.
The contest was tied between Marte Yerkins and Sharon (Michaely) Veatch, both entries correctly identifying the Shaler classmates from the class of 70 and 71. However. Marte went one step further and identified Ron Crawford, who was in our class but moved away before our junior year. Congratulations Marte!!! The prize as it turned out was a die cast toy!!
What Classmates have to say
Jim Kearns just E-mailed me and said the fuse was already lit for the next one........Judy Agnole (Matous)
I was so pleased to see all my good friends from our class and also get reacquainted with ones that I didn't really know 30 some years ago. The boat was a perfect venue and the food was very good. I think I'll contact some classmates that didn't go and tell them of the great time they missed. You know, we really have a great group of people and I wish it were possible to get together more often than every five (or six) years...Marte Yerkins
I didn't see anyone not enjoying themselves Saturday nite. I think it was actually better than high school.......Tom Glatz
Got an e-mail from Fay who suggested we have a mini reunion each year. Ballgame, picnic, etc.......Rick Barie
Anyone who couldn't attend certainly missed a spectacular night. To me, everything was perfect - seeing old friends and renewing so many relationships, the food, the music.......Ginger Worst (Blum)
I had a great time and it was wonderful to see everyone who attended. I have a feeling I missed a few people but it was good talking to the ones that I did see. It was so nice to see and talk to the Middle Road gang and all of those from Lower Glenshaw grade school. Only wish Linda Falcetoni could have been there! Hope to see you all on the mini excursions! You all looked great!!! I do believe we get better as we age!....Jan Walker (Kramer)
Let's have the next one at Hooters!.....Jim Kearns
Thank you to Jim and Judy and everyone who helped plan this reunion. It was a walk down memory lane. We could not have wished for a better evening. Thanks again!........Joyce (Grall) Dayen
I've gotten back to my "real" life in Texas and haven't checked the site in awhile, but I will always cherish the fantastic time I had with everyone at the reunion. It was so great to be back in Pgh. and back with my old friends. It was overwhelming and I will never forget it. Do I need to get a life? NO...I have a great life and this just added something extra special. Thanks everyone! Special thanks to those who made the whole thing possible........ Lisa (Kendrick) Ocheltree

What Classmates have to say
I want to thank each and every one of you for making Saturday a memorial day, it is the ones that were not there that today I am missing most. Thanks to those who made this event happen, to those that came and in the memory of those that have passed, be well and hope to do this again soon. ~Tom Glatz
Wow - What a great bunch of classmates all gathered together in one place. 1971 turned out smart, caring and good-looking grownups who can laugh at and with each other. We are all still young at heart.

It was great seeing old friends again & connecting with fellow Huskies who I really did not get a chance know in high school. Everything about the day was about perfect. I am looking forward to staying in touch until we do this again next year! ~ Denise Hinds
I had such a wonderful time connecting with my Shaler Huskies friends tonight! Thank you ~ Karen Rose
