ANNOUNCEMENTS

Attached is a Spike Lee clip (Redemption Song) about the 1974 NCAA D1 Soccer Championship Game.  The clip is about the 1st Historically Black College (HBC) to play in a D1 Championship contest.  Starting in Goal for St Louis U was the Freshman, Rob Valero.  His acrobatic and athletic ability kept SLU in the contest thru 90 minutes of regulation play and then 4 Overtimes.  The clip is 16 minutes long and well worth the time to see a glimpse of this superior athlete, our classmate, in a watershed moment of American History.

Ever wonder why Coach Gene Baker left RG for Granite City?  It wasnt the Money!  That and more discussed in this 50 minute Documentary that includes an excellent interview with Wrestling Legend Coach Red Schmidt.  This is an outstanding high school documentary.  Close ties to Riverview and North County.  RG Soccer players and Wrestlers will love it.

Hello Riverview Gardens HS Class of 1974 Classmates

We're SO glad you're here!

 

Chances are it's occurred to you that it's been nearly FORTY years since we graduated high school!  How can that be?  Wasn't it just, maybe, TEN?  Well, a few of us have actually been talking about it, and have met a couple of times to discuss and plan an event to celebrate.  We cleverly refer to ourselves as "The Reunion Committee", chaired by Greg Roberts, whom you'll remember was our class President.  Our intent is that it be fun, casual, and affordable for everyone.  Of course it's inevitable that some of you out there are thinking, "why would I want to socialize with people I went to school with 40 years ago?", or maybe, "I wasn't popular ... those people were a bunch of snobs".  Well, I wasn't popular either, but neither am I the same person I was waaaaayyyy back then.  It's a fairly safe bet that you aren't either!  Come on... we're grown-ups now  ... we only THOUGHT we were back then. We don't care if you're wrinkled, gray, fat, toothless, or bald ... 'cause most of us are too!  Time to 'get over it'. 

Friends, the 60's and the 70's were an era of tumultuous cultural shifts.  Just think about that for a minute.  We experienced it TOGETHER, and it bonded us in ways both big and small (one could wax eloquent on the change in music alone).  Our hair, the way we dressed, our ideology in general changed in ways no other generation had ever experienced.  The Vietnam War raged, civil rights battles grabbed headlines, and the counter-culture movement changed the way we looked at the world.  We joined causes, and began speaking up for ourselves and others.  That said, a class reunion is simply a collective walk down memory lane.  The good times, the bad times ... the high times.  We can listen to the soundtrack of our lives, mourn those who are no longer with us, and celebrate those who are.  It's a step beyond a facebook connection. So please consider joining us.  It will be FAR OUT, we promise!
