Class of 1960’s 45th Reunion

With a rousing “How ya doing’,” Michael Incardone greeted the Class of 1960 at our 45th Reunion. We had over 100 attending the reunion held at the Phoenix Airport Hilton on October 22, 2005. We were fortunate to have as our guests the following counselors and teachers: Betty Fairfax, Berneil Maxey Drake, Lucene Billing, Katherine Watson and Norbert Konzal. Coach Sam Winningham was unable to attend but sent his greetings to all from Northridge, CA.

All in attendance enjoyed the appetizer social, dinner, music, dancing and conversation from 5 PM until midnight. DJ Harry Shapiro had us slow and fast dancing, along with the stroll, twist and the Cha Cha.

Barry Kennedy gave a spirited speech thanking Terry Riley for his years of leadership as the 1960 Class President and Webmaster, saying that Terry has been the “glue” that has held us together. He then presented to a surprised Terry Riley, a “Coyote” trophy for his dedication to the Class of 1960.

Co-chairs were Karen (Deckelmeier) Chapman and Michael Incardone with committee members of Cas Cusimano, Gus Meyers, Barry Kennedy and Terry Riley. Karen also was the tour guide Saturday morning for a 3 hour bus tour, of which the first stop was the Alumni Assn’s Tent Sale at our PUHS campus.

Our 1960 foreign exchange student, Ledina Maria Marcarian flew in from Brazil for the reunion. Classmates came from New York, Texas, Colorado, Utah and California and other distant places to join us for what many called the “Best One Yet”. Now, some are asking for a gathering next year. It seems this reunion’s motto of “Old Coyotes Never Die, They Fight On!” is true.
