The following message was added to our Walter Johnson Class of 1964 Facebook page -- we'll share it here, as well too: ...Wonderful phone conversation with Frank Harmantas recently...of our Class of 1964, who could not make it to the 50th reunion Oct. 11, 2014. It's been said by many...Frank is the greatest musician that ever came out of Walter Johnson High School....Google him and read a wonderful story of his success that took him to the Toronto Symphony. ...MS cannot get this wonderful guy down. We are all thinking of you Frank. Glad you enjoyed the large wall photo of the "Confidentials"...and other reunion memories we sent to you in Canada. It hung at the reunion and was enjoyed by all...it was also part of the video shown that night. Click on "Videos" tab above...and see more. We love you Frank. ...Thanks for finding the photo, Bruce; for taking the picture, Fred...and thanks for being the two Confidentials who were able to be there on 10/11/14, Paul and Bruce. Frank is 2nd from left. Does anyone know what became of Bobby Beale? ...posted by Janette for class of '64...4-12-15...forever celebrating this great event.

DEAR '64 SPARTANS... Thank you to so many classmates who helped us find other classmates, sent in pictures and memorabilia, helped us set up, decorate, clean up and encourage us all along the way to a very successful 50th Reunion. People make an event great. You were the most important part of our Reunion Success. You made it happen. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you...from the Reunion Committee Worker-Bees and the many, many classmates who swarmed in and out of the hive to help us sweeten this event. We thank you all.
Please see the video (on next tab) about us in the 60's that was shown at the Reunion...created by the talented group who took on this most important challenge and time-consuming task: Susan Riggle LoPresti; Chris Collins Mason; her husband, Toby (class of '63); Jim Walker (class of '63)...and those who shared so many interesting pieces to fill this video celebration of our past...our high school years at WJ in the 60's.
