Yes! Attending Reunion

After graduation I served 6 months active duty with the Army reserve. When I returned home I went to work for The Quality Press in Salt Lake City. When I turned 21 I was old enough to apply for work at the Salt Lake City Fire Department, I was hired in 1967, that was a great job! I spent my entire career at the busier fire stations, I think I was living off the adrenaline but after 25 years I was tired and hung it up in 1992.
After retiring from the Fire Department I went to work for Albertson's until finely retired for good in 2010. Since retirement I've become an avid University of Utah sports fan, that has been a lot of fun and I'm truly enjoying my retirement.

School Story:

I remember how crowded it was our first two years at Olympus. We didn't have a cafeteria, the gymnasium was small, but it rocked on game day, and our history class was held in the Little Theater every other week because there weren't enough class rooms for all of us. The fondest memory I have was the time I spent on the stage crew, we were involved in just about everything that went on in the auditorium, that was fun.
