For those of you who want to come by and visit I would suggest getting there around 2pm as the first foursomes should be finishing up by then. We would like to encourage anyone who is interested to stop by Gaetanos tomorrow evening between 5:30 and 6:30pm to kick off the golf tournament weekend with old friends. Its going to be a blast and thanks to everyone who has made this our biggest turnout yet.
See you all tomorrow night, Bud

Message: Hi everyone!
The Multi-Class Reunion for the classes of 68-74 planned for September 30th is generating several emails asking who is coming, and where to stay. The event will be at the old Red Onion location in Redondo Beach, now called The Harbor Drive Lounge. This location has not had a reunion of this size before, so we are hammering out the final food menu and other details. As I have posted before, the committee is doing everything for this event themselves, rather that using a reunion company in an effort to keep the costs down. The ticket prices will increase as we get closer to the event. Space is limited at this venue and there will be no tickets sold at the door. Please get your tickets early! I plan to create a "Who's Coming page in the next few weeks. There are three Hotels close to The Harbor Drive Lounge, and they are all linked to from the "On Line Mailer" page on our site--multiclassreunion.net

Anyway Terry said lets put a bunch of parts in a box and tell Bruce we had them left over and didn't know where the went. Bruce just about had a heart attack.

Message: John, I lived on Eucalyptus between El Segundo and Broadway. there was a house on the corner on Broadway and Eucalyptus that had a large sinkhole in the back yard. My dad told us kids that it was a old unused cess pool that had not been filled in properly. Lots of older homes in Hawthorne were on septic tanks until mains were put in.

Message: Regarding those holes showing up in backyards, I have lived for over 35 years on 118th Place east of Prairie, they are called "cesspools", a sink hole used for waste materials. Ours caved in 2 or 3 times when we were kids, had to have it re-capped and filled in with new dirt. These were used many, many years ago.

Message: Hi John, I don't want to use CT Feedback for posting, but a reminder that the Hawthorne PD K-9 Bar-B-Que is this Thursday May 18th at the Memorial Center. These fine K-9's certainly have a Hawthorne history and I know that one or two of these four-legged officers have made the trip to HHS in the wee hours of the night, so they certainly have their ties to Cougartown. Thanks.

Message: That's OK, Ray. I was looking up and didn't see your plane either. And John. Are you implying that my house is on wheels? I may live in the sticks but rest assured, my house is firmly grounded. Just 'cause I happen to have a couple of Bloodhounds laying around, don't mean I'm related to Leroy.

Message: Just read some of the "feedback" and it brought back a lot of memories. Mike (Shay) I guess I probably was pretty annoying, but that 58 was fast. Really loved that car... Terry Trefz has some great stories about it. Right now I have a Outlaw 41 Willys with a 470 HP 502. Way too fast and a very short wheel base.

Message: Just a quick note: The land at my Uncle Phil's house (at 5400 W. 118th St.-Isis & 118th) also began to develop 'sink holes' in the backyard, in the 1990's. Seems like this may indeed be affecting a large part of the Hawthorne area-and beyond. I really wonder what is causing this to happen. Perhaps a Coug who is well versed in Hawthorne's history can tell us something. BTW, Phil's dad-my grandad-also worked at North American. His name was William 'Red' Jones. Mike

Message: Speaking of old addresses, before we moved to 129th St., I lived in Lennox. The house I lived in (Condon Ave.) is now under the new fwy. I wonder if anyone found the time capsule we buried there in the yard? It was made out of acrylic and it was probably 1961? My dad worked at North American and he made the special box for us. Does anyone else @ Cougartown remember burying time capsules? John- keep up the good work. Thanks.
