More Info
We are planning an ALL CLASS Central School reunion during Libertyville Days on June 18th. Details are still being worked out but we are hoping to meet & share photographs and memories (location still waiting to be confirmed) and then walk to Central School for a tour of the building.

If you are not aware yet, Central School is being converted into lofts, so this is the last chance to see it before it is a residence and no longer a school.

Volunteers are needed to help distribute fliers in Libertyville, and spread the word on Facebook.

Photographs! We are hoping to have a digital slideshow of class photos, and more of Central. If you have photographs please SCAN them and email them to CentralSchoolReunion@hotma

From John Cline

Richard F. Cline, 1916-2004
    Richard F. Cline, 88, of Hillsboro, died following a heart attack on Feb. 17, 2004, at 4:45 p.m. at Hillsboro Area Hospital.
    Private graveside services will be held in May at Montrose Cemetery in Greenville.  Donnell-Wiegand Funeral Home is in charge of the local arrangements.
    Mr. Cline was born on Jan. 7, 1916, north of Woburn, the son of Frank and Maude Durr Cline.  He married Esther M. Slocumb on Nov. 20 1949, in Hillsboro.
    She survives him, as well as his sons, John R. Cline of Hastings-on-Hudson, N.Y., Thomas K. Cline of Tucson, Ariz., a sister, Julia, wife of Dr. Boyd E. McCracken of rural Greenville, and a granddaughter, Anna.
    He was preceded in death by nine brothers and sisters, including Paul, Dale, Thomas, James, Joseph, Charles, Fred, and Genevieve Cline, and Helen White.
    Mr. Cline was reared on the Cline farm, attended Crab Apple School, and graduated from Greenville High School in 1935.  He attended Southern Illinois University in East St. Louis and Edwardsville, majoring in economics and marketing, with a minor in psychology.
    Just prior to World War II, he worked for the U.S. Geological Survey in Illinois and Iowa.  During the war, he participated in the Normandy Invasion and, with the 29th Division, saw action in northern France and the Rhineland.  He was a forward observer and unit commander in field artillery, and was discharged with the rank of 1st Lt.
    He was a Hillsboro resident until 1962, when the family moved to Libertyville in northern Illinois.  Mr. Cline sold real estate in the North Shore area for 15 years before retiring in 1978.  He and his wife returned to Hillsboro from Libertyville in 1984, dividing their time between their home in Hillsboro and one in Tucson, Ariz.
    Memorials may be made to the shriner's Hospital for Crippled Children in care of the funeral home.

Tom Wright has Checked In

Hey Joe! Tom Wright here. Best friend of Larry Fisher and member and guitar player of Tom Nicol's band and other bands that played at school dances, Atlantic Richfield for which Doug MacBeth was the Bass Player. After 20 years I was finally able to locate Larry again this week. There are a LOT of Larry Fishers in the northern Illinois area !!! Do you remember me? I went to Oregon to attend Oregon State University after graduating and loved it here so much I have only been back on tours with my musical group and the last of those was about 20 years ago! My other best friend and band-mate Bob Rause (class of 71) is still out here with me leading a grand old life out here in the Wild West shooting up the scenery with .357 magnums and 45/70's whenever we get the chance and still playing good old Steppenwolf rock and roll. Put out a CD of our songs recently, if you want one, let me know. Maybe you could play it at the next party!

Your web page is:
1. Totally awesome
2. A stroke of genius
3. Extremely entertaining
4. Mind boggling in it's size and scope
5. A kick in the butt

Is there any way you can help me to find photos of the reunions and lists of people who attended those parties? Either or would be great. They may well be on your website, but I have not found them yet. I will keep looking. Your web site would probably keep me busy for some time! There is some great and interesting stuff there, for sure! Please write me back at this email address. I live in Corvallis Oregon, where I came to go to college and met my wife. My wife Carrie and I have been married for 30 years now and have two of the best kids in the whole world. My daughter Catherine is 15 and my son David is 18. I am currently working as a real estate associate broker at www.inetrealtors.com check out that web page which my son created and manages for us. Joe, please tell me the basics about your life. I bet it was and is very interesting. I am very curious to know about you. I am interested in contacting other classmates as well. A list of email addresses and or phone numbers would be wonderful. Let me know what you can do for me there. Hope to hear from you soon.
