Thomas Downey High School Class of 1985 Reunion

Thomas Downey High School Class of 1985 Reunion

     I think that Summer is the time that many of us reflect on the past and all the good times(even more so than New Years.) In 1985 I graduated from Thomas Downey High School(yes I am a Duck) and for the next 3 months I was Free. At least until college started up. I remember helping paint my friend Phil's 1985 Nash Metropolitan, flames on the hood and going along the side panels and "the Love Machine" on the drivers side rear panel.  We then proceeded to cram way to many people into it so we could cruise McHenry and be a part of Graffiti USA. I remember going to concerts at Dazzles Underground and Oakwood Lake Resort. Hanging out and having fun with the best of friends. 30 Years have past and I am still friends with all th guys who crammed into that sub compact Nash Metro. Over the years I have lost touch with some of the friends I had made at Downey, I had moved away form Modesto like so many others only returning a few years back.

The center predicts that the drought will have a relatively small, .25 percent, reduction of the gross state product. The center expects the drought to continue to have substantial impact on the environment and lifestyles, however... Read More
