Physician Married 5
If you read some of the memories of high school, many people write about how they were left out, felt isolated and awkward at that age.  I can remember the same feeling as a sohopmore at Arapaho.  I was not in the "in"crowd, and in high school that seemed so important.  I can remember trying to join a group of guys at a table for lunch, and they just made fun of me.  It wasn't long after that I discovered Mike Murray and Chris Adams sitting outcast at another table all similarly disgusted at not being in any of the in crowd--also disgusted that anyone gave a rip about being "in" in the first place.  
 
That became the genesis of the Sunny Beach Club.  We were smart.  We didn't really need the in crowd.  We decided to form our own group.  We would show everyone we could have a great time and not worry who cared.  
 
The Sunny Beach Club became wildly successful just because we didn't care who thought what of us.  We did a lot of stuff to attract attention.  The bed race, the school newsletter, the theatre, the prom in the cafeteria (remember "FREE CHILI !?").......all of it irreverent and fun.  After a while people were asking who was in (and who wasn't in) the Sunny Beach Club.  To which we answered (of course) that if you're in you know it.  All the time we just smiled among ourselves, knowing all along that we would never try to define who was "in" and who wasn't.  The whole point of the exercise was to resist that high school clique-ishness that was stifling to so many.  You could come and join us if you wanted, if you had enough confidence to be friendly, even if others had rejected you.
 
Every high school should establish a Sunny Beach Club.  Many of us have fond memories of it, even now fifty years later.

Retired Married 2
I left Colorado after graduation in 67.  I moved to Calif. and married the love of my life in 69.  We had 2 sons and now have 7 grandchildren. We lived in Wichita Ks for 40 years and just moved to Lansing Ks to be close to one of our sons and his family. We couldn't move near our youngest son and his family since he is a LTC in the Army teaching at the National   Defense University.   Family means everything to me especially the older I become. I would love to hear from some of my old friends and what they have been up to. Send Patricia a MessageSend Patricia a Message

Bookkeeper/musician Married 3
Retired, then unretired when husband (Mike) started a business again!  Thus, the bookkeeping. :-)  Family and Music are my passions - kids live about 4 hours away in 3 different directions but we see them often; and music gives me great joy playing/singing at church and local restaurants. Hoping to come to our reunion but I have a grandchild on the way very close to reunion time!
