I want to echo a thank you to Bob and the organizing committee for another great reunion and the best venue yet.  So much fun to catch up with everyone--even Dale Yingst ;)

What a great time we had at the reunion. 50 years seems to have flown by but people you just remember. Thank you, again, to everyone involved in making it such a huge success. By the way, where are the photos?! See you soon! ❀️.

Hey All...while I did sign up to attend our 50th reunion, I was unable to attend. Are there other events, regular or not, that might put me in touch with or to allow me meet up with classmates? I would so enjoy reconnecting! I've been pretty much MIA for a long time!

Matt - are you in the area, I mean the general Harrisburg area? We have a monthly lunch of class of '72 folks, the 3rd Tuesday of every month, at various restaurants in the area. If you're (or anyone else reading this) interested to join us please 'friend' me on Facebook and get regular updates as to each month's where & when. We also have an annual Christmas dinner that will be coming up soon that all '72 classmates are encouraged to join us for.

Reservations for the lunches and for the Christmas get-together are needed so, anyone, please do contact me if you'd like to join our group - we've been averaging around 18 or 20 for lunch and in previous years we've had around 50 for the Christmas meal. 'Friend' me on Facebook or reach me at for more information.

Matt, hope Mickey's response gives you an opportunity to meet some Classmates of 72. We have been having Reunions of 5 year intervals. However at the 50th there were many requests to not wait 5 years. We are planning an informal gathering in 2024 to accommodate all of our Classmates that want more frequent events. We will post information about the event on this site once a date is established. Thanks for reaching out.

I don’t know how many may remember Danny Schiavoni but he was in a severe motorcycle accident -

They’ve repaired  his pelvis broken in 4 places, repaired his aortic artery this morning and now he is in surgery for his spine. They are fusing 2 vertebrae near his neck and aren't sur what to do about  the breaks in his thoracic vertebrae, mid back because of all the fragments. They told them there is only a slim chance he might ever walk again. He really needs prayers.

Such devastating news to hear of Danny's accident. I have fond memories of our good times together!

Sending positive thoughts & prayers for his recovery.

I am really sad to hear the news about Danny's accident.. Mickey, thanks for sharing this with all of us.  He is certainly in my thoughts and prayers!

They took Danny’s intubation equipment out last night and He could talk. He is aware of what happened and seems to have a good attitude about being ready to do whatever it takes to recover.

Mickey Haist (Sr. )

Apparently they only repaired half of Danny’s pelvis, to stabilize it so they could work on his aortic artery, so now they have to do surgery to fix the rest of his pelvis. He had 4 breaks just in that area.  He had a 7 hour surgery on his back and neck so hopefully that part is done and can begin to heal.

Thanks for the update Mickey.  I have gotten to know Dan better over the last several years, and a nicer guy you'll never meet.  I just saw and spoke with him him several days ago at St. Thomas Coffee Shopin Linglestown.

My thoughts and prayers are with him.

Some friends and CD classmates have heard the sad news of Danny Schiavoni’s death - this is from his family & a close friend ~
“Danny Schiavoni made the transition from this life into eternal life on Friday, November 18th. The service will be at the Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Palmyra, PA. on November 30th. Information on service times will be forthcoming in the obituary Tuesday or Wednesday.
Thank you for all your prayers and ask that your prayers are now focused on his family members. Schiavoni made the transition from this life into eternal life on Friday, November 18th.

If death has truly lost its sting,
And takes us to that “better place”;
Why is it sorrow that death does bring,
And tears that trickle down our face?
It’s not the unknown or death we fear,
We don’t need answers or some reason;
It’s that Danny’s soul is so sweet and his face so dear,
That we’ll miss him for a season.

CD class of '72 annual Christmas Dinner ~

Folks from the CD class of '72, and friends, have been meeting for monthly lunches now for some years. The 3rd Tuesday of every month we might have 6 or 8 or 12 to 20 classmates - old friends revisiting old times and lots of new friendships to enjoy. Not this Tuesday but the next (the 13th) will be our 3rd annual Christmas dinner - and all CD class of '72 pals are invited.

In previous years (we missed 1 or 2 with the shutdown) we've had 40 or so for this get-together, so please do let us know as soon as you can if you plan to attend - comment here or reach out to Lori Wissler Staub (Lavalle) or Mickey Haist Sr on Facebook or Messenger . . . the sooner we get our reservation in the better.

(let us know if you're brining a spouse of friend as well)

Hi everyone!

Not much on here since the reunion but, I hope everyone is doing well.  Bob and I just got back from Mayport/Jacksonville, Florida, where we attended my son's retirement (he served 27 years) from the U.S. Navy.  He entered as enlisted and worked his way up to the position of Lieutenant Commander.  I'm so proud of him!  In December, we will be making a trip to Pennsylvania to see family and, hopefully, get together with some of y'all for breakfast/lunch at Skyline Restaurant on Monday, December 11th, 10:30ish.  Then we have a cruise in February from New Orleans to Mahogany Bay, Belize and Cozumel on Carnival Glory and in April, back to Cozumel and Progresso, for our anniversary, on Carnival Valor.  If you haven't cruised, you need to try it.  :)  

Anyway, just wanted to touch base.  We are retired but never bored.  Everyone take care and stay safe!

Had a wonderful time at my first attendance of the 3rd Tuesday lunch gatherings.  So very nice to see former classmates again!  Hope to return for future lunches.

Mickey Haist (Sr. )

Connie ~ it was great having you join us and please do plan to be with us next month as well . . . and any old CD pals in the area you're still in touch with, don't hesitate to encourage them to join us.

Are there any plans for a Friday evening gathering? I talked Candy Jones into flying in from Arizona,and would like to have her see as many classmates as possible during her time in PA.
Looking forward to seeing everyone since I had to miss the 50th.

Marilyn Yingst (Dowling)

There are no plans for a Friday night gathering, the place we used to meet wasn't interested.  Since this is a mid reunion we are keeping it simple.


05/11/24 07:03 PM #68    

Marilyn Yingst (Dowling)

Terri:  the simple answer is just come to the Saturday night gathering.  We are planning that and I personally feel we don't need multiple gatherings, that is what I meant by keeping it simple.  Hope you are doing well and I look forward to seeing you on the 22nd!
