Retired from K-12 Vocal music career in various WI School Districts. Raised 2 children, Krishna and Tor. Daughter Krishna and family living in Bayfield. Son Tor and his son, Ben, are all living upstairs in the duplex I bought in 2012. Fun living on the Eastside hill again!

Have enjoyed working at First Lutheran for 19 years - the first 15 as Director of Contemporary Worship and now as the Coordinator of Mission and Outreach. My hope is to get back to teaching piano students in my home and watching little Ben grow up into a crazy adolescent.

School Story:

The choir days were wonderful and I learned my craft as a music educator from all the great teachers in the EC School District as well as the professors at UW-EC.

Could you help me with my geometry homework? I remember that I could always count on you - oh that's right, you used to groan right along with me! Ah well, we were good at counting and I I think it's a milestone birthday for you this year! Hope you're having the best birthday ever! Since we all missed you at the 50th, why not come for the 70th (everybody's) birthday party? Would love to see you both! Robbie

Hi Dave, Hope this birthday is the happiest yet! Looks like you travel a bit, so I also hope you're somewhere warm and enjoying the weather! Take care, Robbie

Happy Birthday Maxine! And a belated Happy Birthday to Nick, too! Do you celebrate halfway between your birthdays or splurge and go out twice? Great seeing you at the reunion! Wishing you fun on your many birthdays to come! Robbie

Hi Kathy, I love your stories and the only thing I can add to the Mr. Adam's story is that he always seem to have a toothpick in his mouth and it's a wonder when Nancy went in a circle on steroids that he didn't chock on it and die as he predicted! Those of us on the East Side were aware that Mr. Adams had a son Reuben, that was the recipient of many a nasty joke or two. You're right, learning anything in some HS classes was never going to happen! So glad that we got to know each other in Homeroom and it was fun watching you and Karen confusing us from time to time! Glad you're enjoying retirement and I assume, also your birthday. Sorry my greetings are late, but they are from the heart for both of you! Take care, Robbie

Hi Lois, It's been years since we've talked with each other, but I'm so grateful that I can today via email, sooooo HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Hope you do something special today that will make your heart sing! I'm a retired music teacher and would love to get together sometime! Please email or call me when you get a chance at 715.563.0885. I'm living in the old neighborhood - bought a house on 915 Barland St.!! All the best, Robbie

Hh Nancy,

Happy Birthday. Great pictures - the years have been kind to you - you look terrific. I wish I had spent more time getting caught up with you at the reunion, but your profile tells me that we all owe you a debt of gratitude for your important research. You've earned your rest and relaxation in beautiful OR with your Arabians. Congratulations on becoming a grandmother and I hope it's the best birthday ever! Robbie Hammond Joern

Hi Lorelei! Hope you're having the best ever birthday! I would also like to send along greetings from my dear friend, Pastor Jeanne Warner, who learned much about pottery from your husband. Is life in Mexico treating you well? Take care, Robbie

Hi Karen!

Happy Birthday! So good to catch up on your family - sounds like they're doing well. I think raising walleye is a great thing - especially for people like me who love to eat them.
Tor is a single dad and when his son, Ben, was born 5 years ago, I offered to help in raising him. Over 3 years ago, I bought a house on Barland St. (the old Eastside Hill neighborhood) that 's an upstairs and downstairs duplex. The boys have two bedrooms and I have a nice large one all to myself - oh happy day! Tor's done a lot of re-modeling and, of course, landscaping, which is his career. So, when you come through EC to visit family, please stop by at 915 Barland St.! Would love to see you when there's more time to chat than what we had at the reunion. Take care and have a wonderful day! Robbie
