60R 2029 Party Animals


After the surprise abdication by Lisa Johnston Howorth as President-for-Life (a position bestowed upon her by past Reunion Committees) and her awarding me the title, I had an opportunity to note some well-deserved recognitions of the hard-working members of the Reunion Committee and make a few reflections. Here is a more complete version.


I am grateful for the support of the following, all of whom made our two Reunion events successful …

  • Ellen Turner … my wife, my partner in life’s journey, my moral compass … Montgomery Blair High School Class of 1973 … Thank you for pushing me into action and – more importantly – for coordinating with the venues
  • Susan Sharp … recommending the reunion venue, providing wise counsel
  • Scott McCarthy … name tags, continuing support and wise counsel
  • John Hoke … our Vebmaster …  combination Class of 1969 booster, IT department, editor, marketer
  • Kevin Bronfin … who arranged for the EventBrite option for payment … more that 10% of the payment were made this way
  • Greg Friedman … who made me a big fan of community banks. After not being able to establish a checking account in the name of the class at a certain national bank, Greg came through with Capital Bank of Maryland.
  • Lisa Johnston Howorth… our former “President for Life” … for suggestions and her energizing cover note to our fall survey
  • Dawn Perusse and Milt Heard (Ellen’s and my live music and dining companions) … early discussion of options and organizing our check-in volunteers
  • Our check-in volunteers … (raise your hands) … Jean Phelps Rastall, Barbara Sweetser Frederick, Veronica Bailey, Diane Burnside Gaede, Susan Moxley Sanford, Betty Forrest Robinson, Lisa Johnston Howorth, Carol Kaufman Kupperberg, and James Orsinger

If I forgot anyone, my humble apologies.

How This All Happened

As we began thinking about this event, I felt it was important to seek out your insights. So we issued a survey back in the fall of 2018. 190 classmates began the survey and about 125 completed it. Your responses provided important direction about preferred type of events, the time of year, day of week, and time of day, and – most importantly – the food.

Thank you for the insights you provided in your responses. Much of how our two reunion events were structured was based on your preferences.


I was corresponding with Keith Morgan, who many of you recall for both his SGA and acting talents. Reflecting on where life took him, he was particularly poignant in his reflection on his experience at Walt Whitman, summing it up as providing a “solid launch”. I suspect many of us feel the same way.

I continue to believe that for each of us, our personal growth in high school was the result of our parents, our teachers, and our classmates. We all energized each other; we challenged each other; we studied hard and had fun together. What magic it was that we all came together in that place and at that time.

I continue to be intrigued about how it all happened. Attending Walt Whitman was generally not OUR choice, but our parents’. I would love to read more about how your family came to be located in the neighborhoods surrounding Walt Whitman. Several of you responded to the email asking you to post those stories; they are very interesting. Please send more.

Finally, overjoyed as we are in seeing one another here, we all reflect on classmates who have passed – some quite recently – but their memory lives on.

Moving On

Having been involved in initiating, organizing, and closing out the 10th, 20th, 30th, 40th, and now 50th reunions, Ellen tells me that enough is enough. Next time around, someone else will need to step up. Don’t be shy. (It’s not all that hard if you recruit a strong Committee.)

So this is my last time addressing you all as group. Come to think of it, it is my first time. I feel like I am getting all my high school extracurricular activities done now, 50 years after the fact. This should be useful if I ever apply to college again. Perhaps I’ll be hitting up one of you for recommendations.

Finally, the website is paid for through 2029. Please keep it a living, breathing record of the lives and times of the Walt Whitman Class of 1969.

Thank you

My 50th Reunion Experience in Detail:  John Hoke WWVebMaster

What a wonderful reunion we had. I am so grateful of the many people who attended this important event. I enjoyed all the hugs and kisses, too. 

BTW--I hope you will consider buying one of Jim Monday's tribute posters to hang in your home or office. I can assure you it will put a smile on your face every day. I guess by now you know I do have a favorite--but of course it is of your humble WWVebMaster. Good job Jim!

And finally after almost 50 years apart I was reunited with my best friend Bob Page. He drove all the way from Fairbanks Alaska with his wife Lynda and thier dog.

Please add your 50th Reunion Experience on your profile.

Friday = 82 

Saturday = 150 (125 classmates)

(Where are your pictures? Post your reunion photos on the ‘50th Reunion Photos’ page .)

Wishing all of my fellow Whitmanites a joyful fun-filled 50th Reunion. As a former would-be member of the Whitman Procrastinators Club, there is much to share, but perhaps for the 60th.

Crazy idea -- when early in the planning, Reunion organisers requested suggestions for how to celebrate our 50th, I considered suggesting someplace gorgeous in Greece. Kind of having both the bird in the hand and the two in the bush -- as Greece seems to be in the bucket-list of so many.

I'll be celebrating on Saturday, too -- but at a family wedding in a lovely mountain village overlooking a sparkling emerald sea. Festivities will last well into the next morning with great food and wine aplenty -- and jubilant dancing! So, despite time zone differences, it's very likely that we'll all be dancing at the same moment in time. A pleasant thought.

Again have a great time. Rock it up, rip it up! Shake, rattle and roll! Come together! Yes!

Donna, Nancy, and Barbara

This picture was taken immediately following the infamous false fire alarm incident our junior year (before Nancy and I started dating) during a thunderstorm when we all had to exit the buildings in the rain. Donna and Nancy are soaked, but Sweetser somehow managed to avoid getting drenched and mussing her hair (no surprise there). I recall the experience because for some reason I ended up drying off at the President for Life's house with a couple other people.
