What a sweet memory! I made my dress too, and I might make one for the reunion. Are you wearing your song girl dress on Friday night.

Loretta Packard (Luskin)

I too made my prom dress!  It was made of silk fabric purchased in Maximes basement, and a Vogue pattern! I loved Maximes. It was like a candy store to me. Have been sewing ever since. Although not as much now as I use to. Beautiful colored dress Camay!   How wonderful that you’re still creating with color and fabric!

We are so blessed to have grown up with the opportunity to have sewing class in school. I was disappointed when Oceanside took away these classes when I was a teacher. They sold all the sewing machines.

Camay, I just remembered you were a cheer leader, not a song girl - so sorry to make the mistake. Will you wear your outfit on Fri night ?

Anne Hassell (Nelson)

Hey, y'all, Even if we cannot fit into our outfits, we should bring them to display in the memory room. Loretta, Camay, and anyone else, bring your PHS clothes to display. It would be fun to see them all decorate the memory room.

I remember taking the bus downtown to Maximes and staying there looking at fabric and patterns forever. I also remember getting banana splits next door, and buying shoes at Leeds. I also enjoyed shopping at Seleby's (sp?) on Washington Blvd.

Hi to Camay, Loretta, Anne and Judy.  I enjoyed your posts.  I used to sew my clothes and shop at Saleby's, so long ago.  Great memories.  I hope to see you at the reunion.

I used to buy fabrics at Calico Corners.  And re. Judy Smith's post, is the place you bought banana splits "O'Farrels"?  I worked there the summer between my Junior and Senior year.

Barbara Kaplan (Kraemer)

I was a terrible seamstress and never shopped for fabric but remember doing  lots of shopping at the Broadway on Colorado and Leeds shoe stores! :)

Jan Sullivan (McEachern)

Amazed at how many of us loved to shop at Maxime's.  I too thought of it as a "candy store" and could spend hours there going row to row looking and touching all the fabrics.  I credit my love of sewing and creating from fabric to Marta Fuchs' mom who taught me so much about the craft.  I continued to sew clothes for myself and my kids for many years until my daughter Megan asked if she could have a "store bought" dress for Christmas at age eight iinstead of one of my creations. Turned to sewing items for the home - pillows, cushions, drapes, bedspreads, etc. after that.  So looking forward to the reunion and seeing so many familiar faces.

Hi, Modie and Clay,

Thank-you for all your work!

We've sent in our registration form and fee.

Will alumni receive any any confirmation by email,

or will there be any list of registered attendees posted,

so we know we're on the "official" attendee list before we

fly all the way down there from Oregon?!

Thanks, Scott Crowe

Anne Hassell (Nelson)

Yes, the Leeds shoe store was special. I remember getting shoes and matching purses. AND the dress shop next door was the cat's meow. I always wanted to work there but never applied.

Judith Smith (Canaan)

How fun to have sewing in common! I loved our homemaking classes! Janice, the ice cream store was on the same side of the street as Maximes. It may have been the one you worked at. Isn't  it amazing to see how beautiful our downtown has become?

Hi - Could you post a list of who has already registered?  It would be good to know who is coming.  Also, could you give info re.. how you are doing for donations in relation to what is needed?

Modie (Martin) Katz

My fellow PHS grads - We are only a couple of weeks away from the 50th Reunion. For all of you who are planning to attend and haven't yet registered, or will plan to show up at the last minute, would you please help me to know who you are and if you plan to bring a guest. I am assembling name tags for all. Phil, in Georgia is printing pictures and sending them to me in S. Calif. Then I put them together and add tickets. I want to make sure no one is left out. Thank you so much for your help.

Judy Cox (Gottfeld)
