Next Reunion
06/24/08 - New Official HWS 1979 Runion Web Site: tbayer.com/hws1979

Thank you,
The 2009 Reunion Committee

You Are Responsible For Finding Us
We are taking this opportunity to pass on the following, which is important for any Next Reunion:

There are 311 HWS Class Of 1979 graduates who have been changing their names and have been moving all over the planet Earth. It seemed like just about everyone from the HWS Class of 1979 had entered the Federal Witness Protection Program.

It is WAY too time intensive and effort intensive for a small group of folks (5 or 6 people) on a reunion team to deal with daily life, job and family responsibilities and to track down all 311 of you name changing globetrotters.

For all Next Reunion, each of you, individually, should take it upon yourself to find out about HWS High School reunions. It is real simple for you, individually, to find out about reunion information. It is VERY difficult for a reunion team to find each of you. In the future, you can probably get reunion information from any of the following sources. The sources below are prioritized, with the best source listed first:

    Reunion Contact Points
  1. Contact other H.W. Schroeder 1979 classmates.
  2. Check this page, http://members.aol.com/hws1979 or the Webster Alumni web site: www.websteralumni.org.
  3. Contact the Webster Senior High School Administration Office.
  4. Check the Webster Herald.
  5. Check the Webster Post.
  6. Check the Rochester D&C newspaper.

A Purple and Gold Thank You!

The 20th year reunion was an unmitigated success!

During the course of the reunion, I would thank those that had assisted in the tasks necessary for the weekend festivities. Sometimes people would say, "You are welcome. But I didn't do very much."

Actually, you folks did a lot. Each task you addressed was one more item that Lauren and I did not have to deal with and that was of tremendous value to us. Thank you.

There were a lot of people involved in making this reunion the success it was. Perhaps, many more than you are aware. Take a look at the list below. Some of these people were farther behind the scenes than others, but all were extremely important. I hope that I remembered all the names.
