Occupation: Retired County Social Worker
Yes! Attending Reunion

10/11/2018 - I am Retired. Most recent position was as a Dakota County Social Worker, where I was a worker for 25 plus years. I loved being a SW, especially working with elders and adults with disabilities.

I also continue with my singing - solos in weddings, funerals, church choir. And I am also continuing my interest in community theatre.

I just adopted a 3 year old male cat, who is very energetic, and who I love much. I continue to be a Minnesota Twins fan, no matter how they do.

I hope to see many or All of you at our 50th High School Reunion. It is fun being on this Reunion Committee.

I first attended Lakewood Junior College (now Century College). Then I transferred to Mankato State College (now MN State University-Mankato). I got my Bachelor of Science Degree in Social Work. I worked at various social service agencies. Then I started at Dakota County Social Services in 1989. I first worked as an Intake Social Worker, then an Adult Protection Social Worker, and then an Adult Services Assessment Social Worker. I retired on August 29, 2014, after 25 plus years. I loved being a social worker, and had wanted to be one since I was young.

I also perform in community theatre - both in musicals and non-musicals. I love doing theatre. I have performed in many plays. The theatres have included the old Chimera Theatre, Lakeshore Players Theatre, Patchwork Theatre, Corcoran Park Theatre, etc. This has also included participating in the Minnesota Fringe Festival, a fun and exciting experience.

I also sing solos - for weddings, funerals, at church. I very much enjoy singing.

I am a MN Twins fan - love them no matter what they do.

I also love animals, our family had many dogs, some cats, etc., while growing up. I had one cat, Jasmine, who lived over 15 years. I now have Belle, who is now about 10 years old.

School Story:

My twin sister, Judy, and I and good friends loved to go to the football and hockey games, to cheer the team. I have many fond memories of this. I was also involved in the Spanish Club, and we did many fun things, including making tacos for our home basketball games, to sell. Mrs. Moran, Louis Moran's mother, taught us how to make the tortillas, which were difficult to make. I loved the experience in working on some plays - though at that time, I was not comfortable to be on-stage. Things change, I guess.

Hello Fellow 1969 North High Alumns,
Well, I retired in August 2014, from Dakota County Social Services, where I worked as a Social Worker for 25 plus years. Retirement sure is nice.

Brian, I hope you get this. Wanted to wish you a very happy (belated) birthday. So, now you are 63 like Judy and I. Well, I am retiring on August 29th, from my 25 plus year job at Dakota County Social Services. I am so much looking forward to retiring, and doing other things - volunteering, just being a retiree. Take care. How are things going for you in beautiful NC?
