South Shore High
Class of 1957
Saturday May 3,
Mini High School Reunion Dinner at the Il Fornio restaurant in Irvine,
Guest of honor Karl
Mattson was out from Chicago visiting Judy Creekmore - a best
friend since preschool days!
We all heard some
great stories from Karl about his pre-retirement days as a Chicago
policeman and detective.
Fay and Denny
Flanzer drove down from Palos Verdes.
Denny will be
organizing another mini- reunion in August - probably at the
Cheesecake Factory in Sherman Oaks - so SSHS alumni located in LA
and in the Valley can get in on the fun.
Beth and Dr. Jerry
Brodkin came up from Escondido.
Jerry wanted to make
sure we had an early dinner so he could get heading back for the
70 mile drive no later than 8 PM. We were all still gabbing
at the Il Fornio as 10 PM rolled around!
Doug and Karen
Doug is smiling, but unhappy, because Jerry did not drive his
Nissan 350Z, NOR did Denny bring his brand new Porsche Boxster S.
Was it the rain OR their fear of Doug wanting to do more
aggresssive test drives (as he did with Jerry's car after the San
Diego mini last February)?
Karl said he
he had so much fun that he is now planning to come out again for the
August reunion. Joel Glabman will also try to make it from Las
