2019 Roundup Destin, FL (L-R): Sergio Siller HHS Class of '64; Jerrilyn "JB" Snyder Cobbs MSSH Class of '67 (Kathe's sister); Pat Pierce HHS Class of '64 and Kathe Snyder Richards HHS Class of '63, having dinner at the Marina Cafe


Sergio and Anne Siller


Kathe Snyder Richards HHS '63 and Jerrilyn "JB" Snyder Cobbs MSSH '67


Pat Pierce, Jo Ann McAlhaney Walker HHS Class of '64 with husband Jonnie Walker


After dinner on Saturday night at the "790 on the Gulf Restaurant" in Destin. The first two in front were two very nice "young" ladies from Louisiana who happened to photo-bomb themselves into our photo - we never did catch their names! Behind them are Brad Edwards, Maria Alicia Siller Edwards and Sergio Siller.  Behind Sergio is Pat Pierce and behind Pat (in the same shirt ???) is Ray Valdez who graciously took all the many great photographs during the Roundup.  To Ray's left are Gary Licko, HHS Class of '64 and his wife Carol; behind Ray is JoAnn McAlhaney Walker's husband Jonnie Walker (where in the world is JoAnn?). Just behind Johnnie is Jerrilyn Snyder Cobbs, MSHS Class of '67 with her husband Ray, Coral Gables High Class of '63. And last but not least, on the top row, is Mary Baker, Kathe Snyder Richards HHS Class of '63 and Mary's husband Gene Baker, friends of Kathe.

Brad Edwards, related to Anne and Sergio Siller only by marriage - LOL!  But he also happens to be a great young man!

Ray, great photos. Could you put the names of the folks either on each photo or at the bottom of the posting as well as the class they were in (I believe you had both '63 and '64 at this Roundup). Trying to figure out who that guy is in the group photo with the baseball hat and the great beard? Thanks!

Thank you Ray, enjoyed seeing the photos.  Wish we could have attended. Too many things going on this year. Hope to be able to attend next year.  Also, looking forward the Roundup in March.  Hope we will be available to attend!!

Sergio Siller

More than happy to do it Ray. And thank you, Pat Pierce,  Kathe Snyder Richards (Class of '63) and your niece Wendy, for making the Round Up a fun time and memorable event. BTW, when you get a chance, could you post one of the photos you took of all the group with Joe & Diane Spence?  Thanks! And we were fortunate to have such great weather considering Tropical storm Nestor decided to go through a week later!

Which location? Lunch or Dinner? What is the date?

11/08/19 08:10 PM #221    


Vince "Vinny" Rusinak

We don't have a date for the Ormond Beach Roundup, but it will most likely be in the February/March time frame. Jack Krouskroup has a great venue...early bird dinner...and then we stick around the restaurant until they ask us to leave. It's a one afternoon event. You can drive to it in the late morning/early afternoon and start home in the early evening, or if your drive is more than a few hours, you could plan on staying the night. You might only know one or two classmates before you attend one of these Roundups, but I guarantee you'll end up meeting many new classmates by the end of the day. And it's not just for classmates...spouses/significant others enjoy them as well!

Thank you!  I will keep watching for updates.

Richard "Tr" Anderson

Like many of you just found out about Rich Powell's set back. I've asked Vinny to report Rich's home address so we can flood his mail box with our well wishes for his speedy recovery!! Just a heads up and suggestion!

Vince "Vinny" Rusinak

To protect your privacy, I will only provide personal information to classmates and guests on this website...email addresses, phone numbers, home addresses, etc...that classmates allow me to provide. Richard did give me permission to provide his email address, which I did through a separate email, to our classmates and guests on this website, but not his home address. By the way, Richard said he has received many emails and appreciates our concern and support! Reconnecting with and supporting our classmates in times like this is what I believe our high school class website is all about...and it's working...thanks to all of us!
