Buffalo's (Bob Lloyd's) longtime friend Mickey Phoenix posted it on FB after Bob passed. I don't know if he actually played that bass sax, but I love the photo

I've added some more galleries to the Photos link. Some photos my brother Don took while walking around campus in May of 1969, a few photos I took at the 10year reunion, and football season photos stolen from our "Beaver" newspaper the fall of 1968..hope you enjoy.

Under photos I posted Farm Day 1969 photos that my brother Don and I took our last spring at Scottsdale High. The class of 1969 had fun winning the class competition that year, but it is sad to see the young men in the photos who have since passed away, George Barrett, Dennis Smith, Dennis Darling, Bob Loyd, and Steve Clayton.

Linda Dewitt was the first kid and friend I met after leaving Missouri in May 1959. My dad had rented a house around the corner from them near Tonto school in Scottsdale. Dad had met Mr. Dewitt when he was "mowing" the back yard (no fence) and a rock hit Dewitt's window. When he went to apologize, he discovered that Mr. Dewitt was a newly-arrived plumber from Ohio. Dad was a newly-arrived air conditioning/heating guy from Missouri. And it certainly helped when Mother and we four kids arrived 6 months after Dad to have three Dewitt kids to play with - and one was MY age!
It was a delightful summer for me. Living on a farm, I rarely saw schoolmates during the summer and only had siblings to play with. I learned to play jacks and to jump rope with Linda in the summer program at Tonto and thought it was cool to be able to WALK to a school rather than ride the bus. But September came and Tonto was not where either Linda or I enrolled for fall. Her folks bought a house in the Kiabab area. My folks bought one in the Loloma area - but I still had to ride a bus! After two years, I was transferred to the new Paiute - and walking a couple of blocks. :-)
The Dewitts and McDowells continued to socialize through our grade school days and some in high school.
I am so enriched and pleased to have had Lin (now) as that first experience of my new home - and to count her as a special life-long friend today.
This picture was taken in 2017 at one of our Women's Luncheons and is one of my lifetime favorites.

SHS reunion planning team meeting -


Monday, September 10. 10am - noon.     Panera Bread (former Farrell’s) on Indian School

Team Members:  Judith Merritt, Jane Wixted, Jim & Candace Hazar, Meg Mason Bushard, Meridy Dwork Hulsing, Lin DeWitt, Joyce Bigelow Hames, Charles Pavarini, Tucker Probst Wardwell, Ron Adams, Patti Lynn Wilson,  Don Adams, Lou Simonet, Sharon Eberle Wagner, Tina Carroll Chambers,  Dennis Mattson, Kathryn McDowell...plus some local drop-ins 

It’s wonderful to have so many additional members participate in the planning of this reunion. Some are local and some out of town, participating by phone and email and attending meetings if they are in town on meeting days.

The essential activities of the last two months have been to review, and review, and review potential sites for our reunion and to evaluate which is the best venue and value.  This takes a tremendous amount of time for research, conversations, site visits and calculations.  The September 9 meeting is focusing primarily on that and hopefully to make a decision on that.

Target date for the reunion remains at the first or second weekend in October 2019.  Keep them open if you can!
