WHAT HAS HAPPENED IN MARSHALLTOWN OVER THE YEARS
     SOME THINGS CHANGE
     SOME THINGS STAY THE SAME
     SOME THINGS DISAPPEAR OR MELD (CANASTA TERM) INTO A NEW LIFE


    Already some of you have encountered limited space availability at motels, and we are getting that covered. Hampton Inn and Suites (Hilton) and Best Western Regency at the corner of Hwy 14 and 30 have space available and I have blocked ten rooms (two queen beds each) between the two. Go online, search their names with Marshalltown included, catch the pictures and then contact me (davestover@comcast.net) Comfort Inn has rooms also.

Saturday there may be great festivities. Casual dress will work for any of our functions.  Feel free to contact Dave Stover (303-797-2475) cell (303-808-8722) or James Philip Pattie (480-641-9978) with questions.

It would be of great help to your administrators if you would occasionally, go to www.marshalltown53.com and login to your profile. Some of you have responded. Thanks. Check the Profile detail and verify the accuracy of your Address, Phone Number, and Email Address. We will get an automatic notice of your “login” and know that your contact information is accurate.

This website is maintainedby your classmate root administrator, Dave Stover. I can't begin to fill the shoes of Jack, who for so many years kept us all informed of changes in the profiles of our classmates, their birthdays and those who have departed. The past reunions have been wonderfully captured in photos. At this point, I would like to request help from anyone with photography experience to volunteer to take photos. It would be great to capture some of the weekend festivities in addition to our gathering at the restaurant Saturday evening.

Once you create a profile (by creating a password) you will be able to see the profiles of your fellow classmates and interact with them. Each profile has the picture of your classmate from the 1953 Post Script Year Book.

If you change your email address, or your regular mail address, or your phone number, please update this information in your profile. When we download a hard copy of the information we can then be confident that it is correct.

Please let us know if you are aware of a classmate that has died. If you can include an obituary, it will be included in the site. When only the date of death is known please include that information. Losing a Classmate is a sad event, but, we need to share this information with each other.

The home page has a MISSING CLASSMATES option, on the lower right side of the page, to advise a fellow classmate who has not joined our site to join with us. When you are aware of an email address of a missing student please send them an invitation to join the web site.

When you communicate with a classmate who does not have an email address (or computer); do not hesitate to advise them of www.marshalltown53.com. They may wish to contact a friend or visit a local library, to use their computer, to join our web site. You do not need to be a computer junkie to enjoy our web community of friends. Our local library has several such users using their facilities. Please contact us if you are having any difficulty creating your profile, accessing your profile, or adding photos and videos, etc.
