A 44-Year Observance

Greetings, classmates from the THS Class of 1971, and interested public!

On June 3, 2015, at 6:00 pm MST (6:00pm PDT, 7:00 pm MDT) we of the class have declared that there shall be a commemoration of our graduation from Tempe High School 44 years ago!

At that time we will observe a moment of noisiness, to celebrate that great moment in 1971 when we each began our individual post-high school lives. Please celebrate in place, wherever you may be, by making inordinate noise, using any means at your disposal. Some may wish to plan something ahead of time, and that would certainly be appropriate to the joyous nature of this celebration, but don't be discouraged by other obligations that you may have for your time at that moment.  For example, those also observing a vow of silence may wish to celebrate with some vigorous throat-clearing, robe-swishing or cork-popping. If delivering a speech or fly-fishing, maybe a simple "woo-hoo!" at the top of  the hour would seem adequate.

Everyone is encouraged to share your observance by posting photos, videos, sound byte files, sketches, journal entries, and the like. If you sent them to me or post them on Facebook, I'll be happy to add them to this post to share with our non-Facebook friends.

We're only two days away right now!


This wildly successful event was "attended" by 19 people.  This video submission by Laurel Ostler Jensen was judged to be the best of show:
