Thank you Class of 79 for a “dream weekend”.   Seeing everyone and learning about your last 30 years was unbelievable.  Everyone looked fantastic and I am really proud of everything you have accomplished.

      I was very fortunate to be your teacher, coach and/or middle school principal.  The Class of ‘79 was a very special class for me.  You were great math students, great C Team players, set up a very organized student government and enjoyed all of it.  It is not surprising that this weekend was so well planned and the plan carried out to perfection. 

      Meeting at the gate gave everyone a chance to begin connecting again.  The opening ceremony brought back memories of standing there with my 6th grade class during the flag raising ceremony Monday mornings. Of course the high point of the tour was the visit to the gym, site of so many great C Team victories! 

      The Guaira Restaurant was a great setting to continue connecting with classmates, eat, savor the aguardiente, listen to speeches and view a great slide show.  Bernardo was a great host Friday night as the dancing really began.  Jorge’s beautiful finca was the perfect place to complete the reunion.  He can transform my yard in Plantation any time he wants!

      I would like to thank Claudia and Jack for all the time and effort they put into the organization of the Reunion Weekend and for getting in touch with me so I could participate in this great event.  Visiting with everyone meant a great deal to me and I hope we are able to stay in touch.  I was surprised so many live in South Florida or pass through the area traveling to and from Colombia. 

      Please remember you have another home in Plantation, Fl.  If you are in the area, it would be great if we could meet even if it’s only for a short visit. My phone number is 954-472-9740 (casa) and 954-817-2592 (cell).  The address is 1111 NW 111 Ave. Plantation, FL.   33322 (only 3 miles due east of the Sawgrass Mall off Sunrise Blvd.).

      Everyone please take care, enjoy life and keep in touch with each other. 

Thank you again for a “dream weekend”  en mi pais con mis ninos.
