CLASS MEMORIAL BRICK.

The "Memory Wall" in the new Olympus High School includes a brick paying tribute to our class. The prose is a reduction of of suggestions from several people in the class:

The journey is yet

PROFILE OF THE CLASS OF 1963

 

We were the blasting caps of the baby boom, born as World War II ended in Europe and Japan. We came of age the year Martin Luther King proclaimed "I had a dream...," when President John Fitzgerald  Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, as the “conflict” in Vietnam edged into war, and when the rousing refrains of Peter, Paul and Mary gave way as the more free-wheeling lyrics of John, Paul, Ringo and George ushered in a raucous decade of “sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll.”

In a kinder, gentler time the graduating classes of 1963 at Olympus and Skyline High Schools were united as Olympus sophomores in the largest high school class (more than 900 strong) ever assembled in Utah.  We disassembled somewhat in the Fall of ‘62 when some 200 of us opted to do senior year at newly opened Skyline.

Now, we formally reunite every five years or so (as we did for our 50th Reunion in August of 2013) and as we will less formally for dinner on the first Saturday of August in 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017, and then for our 55th Reunion in 2018.   
 
 Many of us from Copenhagen, Denmark to Korea and in nearly every state in the U.S. have been talking together on-line or getting together in smaller groups for good food and conversation since 2002. This “will `likely go on until we die.” 
 
Another classmate said:  “It’s like a time machine, with a ‘click’, you're able to go back decades, visit old acquaintances and establish new friendships with people you didn’t know at all. But there’s a huge difference between then and now: now, we're more open, honest, caring, empathetic and sharing.”
 
This is the website for the class (www.Oly-Sky63.com). Hundreds of photographs are here. You are encouraged to publish your own photos here on your own pages or in the "Galleries" section where you will find photos from all of receent reunions as well as of our days together way back when. Before the old Olympus returned to the dust from whence it came, John Telford and Paul Bjorn photographed the old school (it looked pretty spiffy actually).  They too are posted to this site under "Galleries." 

Incidentally, if you see a camera icon next to a classmate’s name on the roster, it indicates he/she has posted photographs. Just click on the “name” and all the pictures that person posted will appear. 

The bottom line is this: if  you haven’t visited the main Olympus and Skyline site and devoted at least 45 minutes to checking-out your friends and adding your own personal relfections, you are missing out. Spend some time here. If you know the email addresses of classmates who have not yet subscribed to the site, be sure to invite them using the invitation box in the bottom right hand corner of this page.  Simply paste or type in our classmate's number.  They system will take care of the rest. 

 

KEEP REUNIONS AFFORDABLE TO ALL
CONTRIBUTE TO THE REUNION FUND RIGHT NOW

In 2003, in 2008 and again in 2013 and continuing on many class members contributed far more than the required participation fees.  Thank you to them. Contributions over and above standard renunion fees have  been used to underwrite the general costs of the reunion and thereby ensure that tindividual fees are low, affordable to all. 

With their registrations for the  "ANNUAL DINNERs that began in 2013 on the patio and sequestered hillside lawn of The University Marriott several class members enclosed  generous contributions that will be used to offset costs for future  reunions and annual dinners. We hope this traiditon continues. Please donate whatever you can to help keep our class events affordable to all.

Please make your check payable to the   Olympus Skyline Class of 1963  (memo: Donation Reunion Fund)and mail it with your registration  to :
