When I told Curator Jessica that I had found two dozen Class of 1965 graduation cards in a box in the attic, she said, “I guess things chiseled on stone tablets last a long time.” Youngsters today have no respect for their elders.
I’ve done stories or posted pictures of quite a few of these folks. You might have to scroll around on the page to find some of them.
- Ronald Dost in Trinity Lutheran School’s Safety Patrol
- John McGill on the last day of school
- Al Spradling II and III
- Pat Sommers in one of the few photos where he is not proclaiming himself No. 1
- Walter Stafford in the library, which would be expected
More of the Class of ’65
I didn’t notice until I had scanned the cards that Steve Crowe showed up twice. Let it be know that he didn’t pay extra for the exposure.
- Steve Crowe’s Corvette
- Joe Snell, his Dad and his Mother
- Pat Johnson watching the Beatles (Pat Sommers and some other 65ers are there, too.)
- Mary Rogers in music class
- Majorette Gwen Petty
Do you want your card back?
I’m going to bring the cards to the reunion this summer in case anyone wants their card back. Unfortunately, several of our classmates have graduated to Up There, so they will go unclaimed.
- Shari Stiver was my first high school girl friend. She, Jim Stone and I reconnected in 2010.
- Artist Marcia Maupin worked on posters to boost Girardot sales.
- Terry Rose invited me to sit at the 2013 version of the Cool Table.

How neat to have kept these cards all these years!! Hopefully you will get some responses from these folks. I can’t remember if my brother was the class of 64 or 65. His name is David Cotner. I had cards like these also – I think every class had them, but sadly I lost my cards, graduation invitation, RSVP card, and tassel during the flood of 1986. I had water in my livingroom up past my waist. Lost the hair from my son’s first haircut, birth certificates (they have since been replaced)and lots of pictures, all the furniture, clothing, etc. What a mess. Thank God for the Red Cross and The Salvation Army.
For reasons unknown, I still have all of that ‘stuff’ as well, even a half-full box of my ‘calling cards’. I think I’ll start handing them out.
I sure do remember Stephen Thomas Crowe. He was my first boy friend. LOL!
