UPDATE
:

-Our 7th MYSTERY CLASSMATE was wearing his "Safety Patrol" belt and went from a "School Sidewalk Cop" to being a Detective Lieutenant for the Michigan State Police.....his name is...John (Pat) Wiechert.

-Our 6th MYSTERY CLASSMATE was Wayne Simonson, and once again nobody could correctly identify Wayne's photo. The tip-off should have been the toy car that Wayne was holding in his hands. As we know from viewing our Hobbies & Passions page, Wayne restores old Chrysler autos, and probably has one of the best collections of Chrysler cars and memorabilia anywhere around...except for the Walter P. Chrysler Museum, of course. 

-Our 4th MYSTERY CLASSMATE was Lois Kingshill Kohler. I previously reported that nobody was able to guess that it was Lois. I now stand corrected. Sandi (Habucki) Jasper did identify Lois' photo.
 
-Sandi was also one of three others to correctly guess Margaret (Moran) Johnson as our 5th MYSTERY CLASSMATE entry. Wayne Simonson and Ellen Norton also identified her as our MYSTERY CLASSMATE.

-
Our 3rd MYSTERY CLASSMATE was Elizabeth (Liz) Prechtel McClellan.

-Our 2nd featured MYSTERY CLASSMATE was Susan Burke Koehler.

-Our very 1st MYSTERY CLASSMATE was Naida Kleefus Okray

Enter our Mystery Classmate Contest

 

 

From now until our reunion, we will be asking you if you can correctly identify one of your classmates, from either their posted photograph (ages 6-10), or by a significant, yet little known fact about them. The contest rules are listed below. Prizes will be awarded. One of those prizes may include a “conversation” with Lois Kingshill Kohler (one hour minimum) about her knowledge of, and admiration for the Detroit Red Wings, (Just kidding, Lois) 

 

 

Mystery Classmate Contest Rules:

 

1.      The first ten correct answers received on my e-mail address, pcoutsos@hotmail.com  (date and time-stamped) will receive 5 points. All subsequent correct answers will be awarded 2 points.
 

2.      Only one response per posting is allowable, unless your spouse is also one of our ’61 classmates, then of course you will be allowed two responses. Until we can secure a waiver from the Michigan Humane Society, family pets will not be allowed to submit answers unless they are certified in Microsoft Word, or can operate a small hand-mixer.

3.      Correct answers will be displayed when a new Mystery Classmate photo/fact is posted. 
 

4.      A play-off will be held the night of the Reunion Dinner in the event of a tie.

5.      If a group photo is submitted, you must correctly identify which one is you. You also may submit a photo of an unsuspecting classmate, but we will not be held responsible for your health or safety. There will be, however, numerous security guards at the reunion.

6.      A bonus of 5 points will be added to your point total if we use your submitted photo or little known fact. Understandably, mug-shots or Post Office Wanted posters are not considered appropriate, and will not be posted. Please send copies of your photos via U.S. Mail; or send “jpegs” via E-mail.  I can not guarantee the condition of any original photo that is sent to me, as my pet Iguana just ate two volumes (A-De) and (J-Li) of our encyclopedias, the patio table, and our new Purple & White futon. (Yup,… just kidding again)

7.      Reunion Committee members, their families, and ALL Canadian citizens and resident aliens (sorry Margaret) are prohibited from submitting answers, unless they live in western Manitoba.

8.      Decisions of the judges are final, …..unless, of course, you buy us a drink at the reunion.  (Nope ...not kidding on this one)

9.      Details of our beautiful prizes will be posted on our website, whenever our Reunion Committee completes their appointed shop-lifting assignments.

10.  Contributions to our “legal defense fund” are not tax deductable, but would be greatly appreciated.
