Comments: Hello Everyone! It was great seeing everyone at our 30 yr reunion in '08 & I'm looking forward to the 35th. I've been in southern IN for 15 yrs. Don and I have been married for 26 years and have two daughters, Abby, age 16 and Claire, age 14. I've been in the fitness industry for over 20 yrs and can't think of anything I'd rather be doing! I love helping others attain their goals and feeling good about themselves. My hobbies include exercise (imagine that), gardening, cooking & entertaining! I still love to be around people and throw parties when possible. Living away has made me appreciate my roots more. I look forward to every reunion and the opportunity to see everyone again. I've only missed one!

Comments:  Hi everyone.  It has been a long time since we were all in High School together.  Always wonder what has happened to everyone and what they are doing.  Seems like I could never make it to the reunions to see everyone.  After high school I got into driving a semi hauling steel.  I married my wife Cathy who I met at our church in 1982 and we have one daughter named Rebecca who is 19 years old.  I now work for Boley Tool & Machine and have been there for 14 years.  I also got into the fire and rescue in 1988 at Germantown Hills Fire Dept.  We moved to Roanoke, Illinois in 2001 and I no longer and doing the fire service after 13 years but am still a EMT for Roanoke Ambulance.  Been working, church and being on call for the ambulance service.  Its hard to find time to do anything.  Every once in a while I will come across someone from our class and it is great to see them.  I work with fourth, fifth, and sixth graders at Averyville Baptist Church.  Hard to believe that I am teaching boys and girls about the Bible when some of you could remember the way I was in high school.  Hope to see some of you in the future. Take care and God bless.

Comments: Hi everyone. It was great to see everyone at the 20th reunion last year.  It sure make me wish I had attended prior reunions. I moved to Jacksonville, Florida in 1980 and worked in a family electrical contracting firm and then later as a project manager for some larger corporate contracting firms. I switched professions in 1992 and I am now a Sales Manager for a Mazda VW BMW store in Jacksonville .  I finished my BA last year and I am working on my MBA now. I enjoy ballroom dancing. I started taking lessons over a year ago and now I compete two or three times per year. I would like to have my own business someday. Still single - came close to marrying twice.  I would like to settle down. I have considered moving back to the Peoria area as I have teenage half siblings here. My father Don Filzen was conducting the Peoria Pops in 1998 when he passed away from a stroke.  I would sure be nice to be closer to my younger sister and brother. Frequent visits just aren't enough it seems sometimes. I miss the Midwest but living near the beach is great too.  Hope to see as many of you as possible at the next reunion.

Comments: It sure has been awhile since we were together at MTHS, hasn't it? I went to ISU, and as you can see from my home address...never left here!  I taught high school mathematics for 5.5 years, and then decided that being a full time Mom was best for my family.  Gary and I have been married for 19 years and we've been blessed with two wonderful daughters, Angela and Deborah. Gary works at the Wal-Mart Supercenter. Ang will be a senior at Central Catholic next year, and Deb seventh grade home-schooled.

Comments:Been awhile since I have been out on the site to catch up with what yawl's been doing. The girls and I have been enjoying our time back in TX and seem to go in all directions. Nothing new to all of you I'm sure. My oldest will be a senior in 07 and is fairly set on attending school in Missouri. She wants to join the water ski team and has had enough of volleyball.  I'll miss cheering in the stands though.  My youngest is in band and alway seems to have a crew over to the house. Chaperon is my latest title. Ha Ha. I am still working at Experian here in the Dallas area but occasionally travel to sunny CA to visit my team there. The only drawback of living in TX is missing the Redbird play!

Comments: Hey Everyone!  It’s been a long time since I have heard from you all. As you know I was an exchange student (AFS) from Ecuador. After I graduated from high school I went back to my country to study architecture. Every few years I came back to visit, one time I went back to Metamora to visit my American family, the Abrahams'. During my stay I visited one of my friends, Sherry Lowery. Also in one of my trips to New York I had lunch with John Jones, which was a lot of fun, finding my friend who lived very far away from my home. But when I did come to the United States I mainly kept coming to Florida. Every time I visited Florida I had a great time, that’s why now I’ve been living here since 1990. I love this country so much, that I became a U.S. citizen!

I have 2 beautiful, smart girls, Maria Teresa (20) and Nicole (16). I work for the government as a Construction Inspector for the Housing Program. Let me please know when the next reunion is so that I can go because I miss you all a lot, especially my little town.  I would appreciate if you guys could let me know if you have heard from the Abrahams’ recently, my brother Tom Abraham was from the 1979 alumni, and my sister Barbara was from the 1981 promotion. Also if any of you guys have heard from Francoise Richard, who was from Belgium , and in the same program as me. I would appreciate If you would let me know what she’s been up to. This spring break 2005 I will be in New York with my family and might find one of you there like I did with John in 84’. Just to let you know, I don’t use glasses anymore and look much younger than I do in my yearbook picture! Hahaha.

Comments: Hey Former Classmates, missed seeing many of you at the 20 year reunion. Just thought I'd drop you a line. Finally talked someone into marrying me. She gave me 2 fine youngins, both boys, one of which is already following in his father's footstep by being one fine troublemaker.  I'm not sure the other one is mine as he gets good grades and all.  Well I've got to go I'm late for a meeting with my parole officer.

Comments: Hello fellow graduates from the class of 1978! I hope all of you are doing well and have something special to be happy about in your life. My life includes, husband Mike since 1991, dog Addie, cat Bubbie and finally after many trials and tribulations we welcomed our newest addition on 1/30/03 Thea Grace Corriveau, I've waited a lifetime for her.  She is proof positive that you should never give up on your dream. Anyway, hopefully I'll get to the 25 year reunion to see some familiar faces.

Comments: It's amazing how fast time moves. I haven't made it to the last few reunions, but am looking forward to making it to the 25th. (OMG 25 years, doesn't seem possible) I have 2 grown children 21 and 19.  I'm back in school finally finishing my nursing degree. Life is good! Drop me a line and we'll catch up. (Can't believe I had this picture put on here.....LOL)

Comments: Hi!  I married Jeff Ziegel in 1980.  He is a heavy equipment operator for money, but his true passion is his go-kart, and racing it.  We are the proud parents of 2 sons, Tyler b '82, Zach b '85.  Ty will be graduating from MTHS in '01, and is way into his electric guitars.  Zach is a freshman as of '00-'01, plays football and baseball and is his dad's pit-crew at the race track.  Ping-pong in the Ziegel garage has been the latest attraction for the kids and their friends.  I work at the Family Fountain (again!) and at Cozy Corner Quilt Shop.  Quilting is my newest hobby--still into the sewing/craft stuff.  We moved back to Metamora in '86... we have done tons of work to this 100 yr old home, (not finished yet) and love it here. I could go on and on, but that usually gets me into trouble.

Comments: I was just back there in Metamora in early August for the 30th year reunion. It was great seeing everyone. Ken Matson gave me a tour of the High School... I haven't been in there in many years. It was amazing how much had changed in 30 years. The new football field and stands were beautiful. I couldn't be any prouder of Pat Ryan and the accomplishments of the football teams over the years. I miss Metamora and it's people. It's a wonderful area and everyone that still lives there should be proud of where they live.

Comments:  I've been married to Steve for almost 25 years. We have 2 kids, Jimmy 25 (our birth son) and Nikki 17 a senior at MTHS, 3 cats and a rabbit named Simon. Reunited with Jimmy through the internet in 1999 and now have a grandson Colby. Jimmy moved here in 2001 to start a new life in a small town!! Couldn't have gotten much smaller than Spring Bay !! Nikki has no plans for her future so we'll just wait it out and see. I didn't graduate so I am just thankful that she is finishing school and I'm sure she will be great at whatever she chooses to do.
