It's Summertime! Class reunion memories...

It really is summertime here in Blackfoot -- hard to believe after the very unusual June weather we have experienced. I moved over here from CA this month and had a pleasant but rainy welcome.

Tomorrow is the 35th class reunion for the Snake River Class of 74. Valerie Clement Packer's sister Kerry and several others in the class have been working hard with the plans - it should be a huge success. My sister Sandra aka: Sandy Merrill, as some of you may remember her, short and cute, unlike me... well, she is planning to attend so that reminded me that I had scanned the photos from the last two class reunions for our very own Snake River High Class of 1972.

Here we are at our 30th in 2002. Photo Courtesy of Doug Murdock. Thanks Doug!(click to enlarge photo)

Some of us have changed a lot over the years, some haven't change at all!

If you can guess 100% of us I think you will be a class genius. You can email me your guesses or post to the comments. I might edit this post post later with the names if you really struggle... don't feel bad though, I know some of the gray cells are fading at our age. LOL
You can disregard this part as I finally added the names. If any are wrong, just let me know :)

PS: I have never used LOL before in my life but it seems appropriate now...

Post your comments please, and if you need a reminder on "How to Post Comments" click here!

Stay HIP!


  1. Did I read this right??? You have moved back??? How awesome. Will have to get together. Love the new blog. Seriously, LOL is appropriate for so much, since laughing out loud is so fun. I will try to get in touch with you, Facebook, Hi to all. Marketa

  2. Marketa, thanks for leaving a comment! Now you other folks out there, please comment too, okay?

    I'll post the names to all those folks in the reunion pictures soon...keep guessing. Kathy McBride had nearly everyone right. Here's a hint too. One of them in the 2002 reunion is Denny Weaver, remember him? Does anyone know how to reach him? Last I heard he was in Arco?

    see ya later,


Please leave a comment if you are a member of our class. We would also love to hear from anyone asssociated with former Snake River attendees.
