Dear classmates,
I am posting the two wonderful thank yous we recently received from Shawnee Mission West staff. The first thank you is from Principal Steve Zoe representing the SMW Band and the Love Fund contributions. The second is from Cindy Neely, head counselor who is in charge of the Love Fund and will oversee our donation. Your generosity and support as a class over the years continues to shine brightly. Each and every one of you is deeply treasured, admired, respected, and appreciated for all your efforts on behalf of our SMW Class of 1966.

Paula Hart and Karen Dale want to take this opportunity to thank our committee. Jim Walsh, webmaster of our SMWest class of 1966, put forth tremendous effort to bring us into the modern world where we could far more easily access our classmates. Our events truly benefitted from his astute guidance, and he will continue to provide leadership and direction in the future. Jan Koenig Reintjes faithfully kept track of our monies and our class account. Her unerring accuracy, pin point precision and financial reports supported many others on our committee. Chery Daily Fannin, Epicurean extraordinaire, along with Dave Fagerberg, Culinary colleague, orchestrated our deliciously, savory meal. Sherry Kelly Sutera continues to insure the stellar quality of our Friday night Meet and Greet allowing us to freely mingle with each other as we (dare I say imbibe a bit). Accommodation and shuttle orchestration were competently handled and driven by Rod Coday with a perfect record. Name Tags continued to be the provenance of Cyndi Brown Johnson as she accommodated and altered our aging need for LARGER pictures and lettering. Cindy Houtman Meeker's talented design, decor, bling gleam and selfie area provided glam, glitz as well as zany, madcap accouterments. Set-up artists, Bob Parkison and Cheryl Dornes Gove, ably aided us in enhancing our venue Saturday night. Michael Coleman and Suzy Teegarden's untiring efforts produced and directed our way through candid camera shots Friday and Saturday nights along with with our 'herding cats' class picture (whew, glad we got 'er done. What many may not realize is that Mike and Suzy both made a special trip to Kansas City from Boston, Massachusetts and Whitefish, Montana to make sure we had all the appropriate equipment for all our photo needs. Special kudos! In addition, Michael Coleman spent hundreds of hours making sure we had just the right kind and amount of our music playlist selected by committee. Let us not forget to mention his website opening design with our alma mater and fight song ringing out loud and clear. Although Pam Lumary Harris was unable to attend our event, she was steadfast in attending our committee meetings and providing many thoughtful ideas while participating in our various and sundry discussions. Jimmy Land, while unable to attend all of our committee meetings, was present at all times in spirit, participation, providing unending care, support and love for our committee and classmates. Finally, our 50th reunion would not have been possible without the enduring support of all our classmates. Your generous donations mentally, physically, financially, emotionally et al allowed us to bring forth the best reunion ever. On a personal note this has been a true labor of love and blessing for Paula and me. We were sincerely gob smacked at how this reunion became a time of reflection, reconnection and re-establishing our loving bonds. Elvis has, indeed, left the building.
