50 Years - Still a Coyote
The Class of 1960 held their 50th Reunion on Sept. 10, 11, and 12, 2010 at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort.
The reunion began Friday morning with a tour of the remaining Phoenix Union High School buildings.
The tour was attended by 30 classmates, who also had lunch in the auditorium. The University of Arizona
Medical School, Phoenix Campus Dean Stuart D. Flynn, MD provided some historical information of
the University's development and use of the old buildings and gleefully quizzed us on 1960 trivia for a half hour.
Friday night's social was attended by over 60 classmates, spouses, and guests in the J. D. Lounge room
of the Resort. A great time was had by all.
The golf outing was held at the Camelback Golf Club and the group had a fantastic time, enjoying the round and exchange of old memories.
Over 120 attended the Saturday night dinner and dance. Michael Incardone introduced our guests Coach
Dave and Mildred Goodson, Coach Sam and son Scott Winningham, Coach Ed Long, Coach Martin "Pug" Marich, and
Coach Maxey and Jim Drake. Following the meal we were entertained to the music of Tom
Wolf, who put on a great show by singing many of the top hits of our high school era. Our raffle was a
huge success, the 50/50 proceeds of $195 was won by Alice Velasquez. Special thanks goes to Sylvia (Berarducci)
and George Molnar for helping with the sales.
Two Class of 1960 Polo Shirts were presented to Gary Zundel by Terry Riley for his 50th Reunion winning slogan
“50 Years – Still A Coyote.
One of the highlights of the entire reunion was Coach David and Mildred Goodson joining us enthusiastically
in every activity. They joined 35 of us for the farewell breakfast Sunday morning.
We were pleased that all expressed that they thoroughly enjoyed our 50th Reunion for the Class of 1960.
The 50th Reunion committee was Cas Cusimano, Karen (Deckelmeier) Chapman, Barry Kennedy, Peggy (Aquayo)
Eberhardt, Michael Incardone, Mary Helen (Portello) Leal, Gus Meyers, Moses Moya, Mike Owen, Harold Pauletich,
