Dan Wolfe, class of 1965 (brother of John Wolfe), submitted pictures of the condition of the lot taken in November, 2011 where alma mater once proudly stood .  They are posted in the Last Walkthrough album under Photos and Memories. Very sad indeed

Dan Wolfe from Columbus (John Wolfe's brother) FHS Class of 1965 was kind to offer to pick up Mr. Bob Bruggeman at his home and escort him to our Saturday reunion dinner as he does not drive after dark.  Afterwards, Dan sent us this touching message:

Isn't it ironic that someone who made a living teaching us about how important language is as a component of good communication, has not significantly embraced the digital revolution, especially the concomitant directness and immediacy of e-mail?
 
I wanted to let you know what a fantastic time Mr. Bruggeman had at the 50th reunion of Fairview's Class of 1961.  I spoke with him briefly while I drove him home that evening and then followed that up earlier this week with separate phone calls to him and his wife (of 60 years), Jamie.
 
He seemed genuinely overwhelmed with both appreciation and pride: appreciation that your class would extend the invitation and pride that he had been able to be a small part of our common Fairview experience. 
 
And truth be told, he actually had a good time, even though he confided in me that he occasionally had to pretend he remembered a few of the former students who took the opportunity to engage him in dialogue and renew their relationship after 50 years.  He remarked how he enjoyed seeing that relationship change from what had been purely a student/teacher situation to one of gratitude and friendship.
 
He has also come to realize how wonderful Fairview was in the '50s and '60s.  It was a perfect storm of the best educators, a nurturing environment, and families committed to the importance and significance of the process.   Seeing how that experience has translated to "squared away" adults, parents and grandparents is still giving him a sense of contribution.
 
For my part I most enjoyed the OMG expressions on our schoolmates' faces when they first noticed he was there.  Priceless.
 
One last item of business: Mr. Bruggeman would like nothing better that to continue to reacquaint himself with his former students; so, letters, phone calls and visits would be a delight to hi -- and what a nice way to rediscover why you thought he was so great in the first place.
 
On his behalf, thanks to everyone who welcomed him back into their lives.

Hope some of you are actively visiting this web site as it's full of great information!  The reunion is only a month away and the committee is in the home stretch.  Can't wait to see you all!!!  Wish even more classmates would commit now.  The devil is in the details!!!!!  Whatever your experience in 1961 might have been, believe me... it's a joy when you get to revisit with as many classmates as possible.  Please come and catch up on 50 years!  YIKES!  Susie Mousaian Weaver
