Dennis, I used to be able to name about 85 percent of our grade school class at McKinley. Now I think I am down to about 40 percent. Of course, the eyes don't work so good either,

Martha, I greatly appreciate your comments. Wish I had gotten to know you better in high school. Guess I spent too much time playing sports and in the band. My biggest regret was I never got to be in the Marching 100. Someone told me in 9th grade that since I was on the football team, I couldn't be in the marching band. But band practice was 6th period and football practice was after school. Since I wasn't on the varsity as a sophomore, I could have done both. Eve since then, I always investigate for myself and not just take soomeone's who may not know anything more than me. I was in the 100 for one summer. As I recall we went to Elkhart Indiana to the instrument factory. I heard a rumor that a few mouthpieces went missing.

Hello classmates! Happy reunion day. I am sorry to say we waited till the last minute to make the decision to not attend tonight. I took a fall last week and broke a rib and feel like it's pushing thingsj a little too much. Along with some family health issues and taking a family trip to Spain with that same family in 2 1/2 weeks we are not going to chance it. Best wishes and much fun to all of you and hope to see you in four more years.Happy reunion from Jack and Sandy lagemann Gottlob.

My dearest classmates and friends,

Blessed is the feeling that overwhelms me when I read each of your comments about your experiences at the reunion or watching it live from home. 

Our goal from the onset was that our 50th should be special. It was so special, in fact, that it took an extra year to plan! 

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for being a part of our 51st class reunion, our wonderful Alton High Class of 1970 and Alton, our hometown.

Thank you, Diana and Barry, so, so much for putting together a wonderful reunion. We, the class of 70, are so lucky to have had two such thoughtful and generous people in our class, who would continue to use their time and talents to keep the class of 70 spirit alive. It was a special occasion for sure!
Much love and gratitude to you both!

Dilbert said that many at the reunion asked for information on his upcoming concerts. I told him that I would post his flyer and invite his classmates to come hear him. I heard his band at the Miles Davis Jazz Festival a few years back and it was great!!🥰🌹<>>

I just learned of Earl Timmermeier's recent passing. He is now with his heavenly family whom he loved so dearly and so deeply. Although his name was familiar to me...I didn't know him in high school. I met Earl when I returned to Alton...and he helped me with my computer. We became acquainted...and I came to know Earl as a good and kind man. Truly. You will be missed very much Earl. I am so glad that I came to know you.

Just a quick note to everyone that our classmate, Don Page, passed away Friday, June 3.

Don was a good friend and a talented wild life illustrator.  For our final exam project for Mr Mondy's Biology II in Field Biology Don was my  lab partnefr and we made a great team.  I was the book researcher and Don was the Illustrator while we worked together on the field studies and authoring a report on our findings.  

Both in school and in Scouts, Don and I were always a good team.  without his illustrations I could not have created the quality report that we collaborated on.  Don was always a good guy and a team player

The world is a little less good without Don being around.

Does anyone know the whereabouts of Kent Newcombe?

Ruth E Mitchell (Bell)


Have you tried the contact info in the latest AHS Alumni Directory from 2014. 

The directory info looks similar to what I got from a Google search.

The link from June 2022 has him at St. Louis Behavioral Medicine Institute. He is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.

Hope that helps,
