“It was 20 years ago …” — now 40 — the Summit High School Class of 1976 gathered for a reunion.

Today, over at Foote’s Rest Sweet Shoppe on Frisco’s redone Main Street, the classmates will get together again, starting at 11 a.m., and going to at least 4 p.m., says the still-around Jackie Skaro McPheeters.

You’re all invited to join in the socializing.

“We would love to have any of you who can make it, stop by and say hello,” says Jackie, who owns Colorado Homes Real Estate and is in better condition now as a personal trainer than when she was in high school four decades ago.

According to Jackie, these are the folks who have confirmed they will be coming:

Sandy Steele, Greg Wambolt, Kathy Ahern-Neel, Laurie Anderson Groth, Dan Bell, David Fritz-Kleingarn, Doug Poggenphl-Maxey, Peggy Armfield-Smith, Steve Jacobs, John Bennett, John Glenn, Mark Karas, Danny Eilts, Marshall Pasic, David Prescott, Judy Palmer Faucett, Mark Swisher, Roger Whinery, Zach Johnson, and Lisa Zdechlik. Some teachers, Pat Foote, Jon Kreamelmeyer, Bob Bowers and Gary Giberson, will also attend.

“And hopefully a lot of our friends from the surrounding class years,” adds Jackie.

The accompanying photo, taken 20 years back, captured the Summit High classmates.


In other good news, Community Dinner activist Deb Hage reminds all:

“It is that time of year when Rotary, one of our major donors (the other being The Summit Foundation) sells raffle tickets to win a brand new car in order to raise money for its charitable works in Summit County and internationally. You can support the Community Dinner by buying your raffle tickets online.”


She also says the Elks Lodge, home for the weekly Community Dinner, is having its semi-annual rummage sale Labor Day Weekend.

“Anything you want to bring by the lodge on Wednesday, Aug. 31 or Thursday, Sept. 1 will be welcome. It had a lot of big expenses this year, fixing the roof, repairing the parking lot, and replacing the walk-in refrigerator compressor. Your donations will be much appreciated. If you want to rent a table and sell your own things that is available as well,” acknowledges Deb.
