A Miller’s Treat

Every August, a group of us girls get together at Miller’s for lunch when Tris comes to town.  This year, things got a little complicated and we ended up doing two lunches (I know Kate…”go ahead, twist my arm”).  On our second lunch last Wednesday…there were 6 of us.  Tris, Kate, Sue, Mary Jo, Jeannie and myself.

I was running late and when I walked in…Kate immediately pointed to the table next to us and there sat these 3 lovely gentlemen.


Coach Harrison, Coach Read and Coach Lafeve.

I always secretly hope to run into old friends and acquaintances at Miller’s, but this surprised was so very special.  We got a little chance to catch up and I was delighted to find out that we all went to Eastern for either undergrad or master degrees.  In fact Coach Harrison played football and baseball at EMU.  During our discussion he shared with us the fact that he will be inducted into the EMU Hall of Fame on September 18.  We are all so proud of you.

To see more about the induction ceremony you can go here. http://www.emich.edu/alumni/engage/events/hall_of_fame.php

Feel free to leave a comment as I know Coach Harrison reads this blog.


Group Photo

I need to review all my photos and do some editing, but to get everyone started…here is our group photo.

Small group but had a great time catching up and sharing old stories.  And even learning some new things.

Reunion Prep

Well…the reunion is this Saturday.  Looking forward to seeing everyone.  Thanks to those who are making the trip especially those coming from out of state.  For all those unable to come, please plan on making the 45th Reunion in 2019 (Yikes).  We will probably avoid doing a June event as it created a lot of scheduling conflicts.

We would love to hear your thoughts on the best time/month to hold a reunion. Any and all input is appreciated.

To any of the local folks who can’t make the reunion due to a conflict, feel free to come and join the school tour on Sunday morning.  We will be meeting by the old grade school back doors after the 9:30am mass.

We will post photos after the event.  Promise.

The Reunion Committee

A Miller’s Visit

We had a bit of luck recently and three of the “out of towners” were able to join up with a couple of us locals for our annual August Miller’s lunch.  It was a blast and discussion quickly turned to our quickly approaching 40th Reunion.  No idea how 39 years have already gone by.

I’ll post more about the reunion as soon as we get the venue scheduled.  More soon.



In Memory

In loving memory of Patricia Ann Esper Turner who passed away unexpectedly on October 13, 2012 at the young age of 57. I’m sure so many of us have special memories of Patti. All our thoughts and prayers are most certainly with the Esper Family.
