|Finally, a personal note from Richard Herklots --
At the 40th reunion... at the 45th reunion... and again at the 50th reunion, I had
the opportunity to get together and talk to individuals who I had rarely seen since
graduation. At each event I was amazed by how much we have all matured from
insecure teenagers into decent, caring adults.
Gathered in one room were 63 down-to-earth old acquaintances and 37 of their
guests who shared a sense of community. Classmates who might never have hung
out together 50 years ago were standing around laughing, swapping stories (or
just listening if they were more comfortable doing so) and gaining a greater
appreciation for the lives of their past schoolmates. And everywhere there
flourished a growing sense of mutual respect.
While the photo ID's with names helped A LOT (thank you, Kathy) -- forgetting a
name really did not matter. At 68 years of age, we all just chuckled and
acknowledged that forgetfulness seems to be in inescapable part of getting older.
(I made sure to clearly address one guest by his first name "Charlie" all evening...
only to discover while posting the reunion pictures that his first name was "David".
His name tag was right in front of me all night. Hey, at 68 years old... stuff
happens! Sorry, David.)
So here we are. In five years we will be getting together for a 55th reunion. Who
knows maybe we will decide to have an informal get-together sooner. Whenever
we reunite next, it would be great if you could join us.
I guarantee by the time the reunion or get-together is over, you will be proud to
say that you are a member of the KHS Class of 1968... and I suspect you may find
yourself referring to your former classmates as “old friends”.
Until we get together again, take care of yourself and thanks for being a part of the
legendary KHS Class of 1968.

A total of 100 people attended: 63 classmates and 37 guests.
Thank you to everyone who joined us and helped
to make the 50th reunion such a memorable event.
