What do we do after our 50th?

5 Mar


That’s right, we’ve got to move on to new things. If you haven’t heard of Twitter and Tweets or know some body that does- well, have we got some fun things for the new year!

Follow us on Twitter

If you click “tweetie” the bird you will go to our brand new page on Twitter. You will be able to see it but Twitter will ask you to sign in and if you don’t yet have an account they will offer you to start one. We in effect are sponsoring the SoutheastKCMO twitter page for all alumni, not just the class of ’60.

So come help us with the new project: it’s easy and it will be fun. We will be able to combine with our blog by ‘tweeting’ links that will bring folks back to one of earlier posts. Be sure to make suggestions of other Twitter accounts in Kansas City to follow on Twitter.

Music fit for a King

23 Jun

And the Knights of Southeast High School!

Ever heard of Rick Wakeman? Very talented and unusual musician, his 1975 master-piece about King Arthur and his knights may just be a fitting choice for our 50th reunion.

There is also food fit for a king at King Arthur Flour

Knights do breakfast on 9/11

19 Mar

Anticipating the 50th anniversary one year in advance, some of the brave Knights of Class of ’60 found a round table to gather around at breakfast. Some 40+ men have enjoyed these monthly reunions such as this one on September 11, 2009. The celebration has already begun.

50th Anniversary Edition! Class of 1960

18 Mar
SOUTHEAST HIGH SCHOOL – Kansas City, Missouri

Dear Knights and Ladies,1955-1960—Five fabulous years! It was the beginning of a new adventure, a new building, new teachers, meeting and making new friends, life-long friends. There were no wars, no drugs, no drive-by shootings, just 400 new friends. We fell in love, some just once, others every other week. Almost all of us discovered the means to make our future successful. And now we meet many of our lifelong friends for the first time in 50 years. Your Reunion Committee has planned an exciting and entertaining weekend of activities to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the graduation of Southeast High School’s most remarkable class, the Class of 1960. The only thing needed to make it perfect is YOU!
 The following pages provide the details of the events of the weekend, and a BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION and REGISTRATION FORM to be returned to us by AUGUST 15, 2010 (even if you cannot attend).

In summary, the weekend will look something like this:

 Friday morning, September 17

Friday afternoon/evening

Saturday at 11:30 a.m

Saturday evening

Sunday is reserved for recovery.


Please let us know that you will be here as soon as you can. We are really anticipating a wonderful weekend of fun, getting reacquainted with old friends and making new ones.


 Southeast Class of 1960 Reunion Committee

During Saturday evening we will have a program, provided by fellow Knights and Ladies. We have a committee working on the format and content of this exciting and entertaining program. But since we are providing our own program, we need your help. We need a number of volunteers who are willing to embarrass themselves by putting on a short skit or other kind of entertainment of their own choosing, in good taste of course. Hopefully, the piece will have something to do with high school days or themes, funny memories, etc., perhaps something like Knightlites. Costumes are allowed. If you don’t have a clue as to what to do but are willing to participate, let us know that as well. We’ll come up with something for you. Tom Keck and Bob Lampson have already volunteered, and they have no idea what they will do. Never did!

If there is enough interest, we have arranged to produce a hardbound 35-40 page Class Reunion Book that will include your biographical information and pictures from the evening. The book would be produced after the reunion and mailed to those who have pre-ordered. The cost, including shipping, would be about $20.00 if enough are ordered.
