I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the success of the 50th ROWDY Celebration on Saturday night! Lots of former original, other class, and friends of Rowdies showed up at the new KHS gym. 

The class of 1970 really stepped up with Friday night get together and especially the after party Saturday night at Central Auto Electric!! High fives, fist bumps, kudos and thank you to my brother Dick, Dan Cavanee, and all the others who put on a great spread!! The night would not have been complete with all of their help!! Plus the Rowdies probably would not be here today with YOU 70 GUYS! THANK YOU!!!!! It was a lot of fun seeing everyone there!

And then there is "The Molester", the King, Mr Original, The Grand Pupa, the Creator of the Rowdies, Bob Elliott! Thanks for coming back Bob, and highlighting the night. You can see in the post before Bob leading the current Rowdy Section in a cheer! Check out the video KHS current head Rowdy Kollin Goff put out (a longer version will be available later) on Facebook. Great show Mr Elliott! 

A new sign was unveiled at half time after Bob's speech!! We will be taking donations for that too if anyone would like to help out with that too!

THANKS everyone!! GO ROWDY's

will put some other pics on shortly

Also thank you to all the 69'ers who helped play a part in the celebration! We, of course, will be having another one in August!

You can order a special edition 50th Anniversary t-shirt from KHS which some of the proceeds will go to the new Rowdy Scholarship Fund. You can go to Corner to order yours today! Thanks. Will try and put that up on my facebook page also. Forgot to mention, if you want to donate to the scholarship fund, go to the KPS Foundation website. There you can donate and even see other pictures of the event put up by Lisa Parrish.

Had to have been there . . . . 50 years. . . . .

You are correct, Brownie.  Had to been there. This was the best since the Old Barn!  Great to see all the 69ers who gave up the easy chair in front of Blue Bloods re-runs for a good time Saturday night.  You can't get this kind of entertainment at the Country Club!

50 years, Bob !!!  Great perfomance at the game, great friendships rekindled over the years, a great idea for Scholarships, and a lasting tribute to Bea, godmother of the Rowdys (with a y).

Hope to see more 69ers at next year's Rowdy Fest. It's an annual event now.

Thanks for letting the 70's belong.

I must have missed the Rowdies. I like it though.

Any flooding in the Kearney area? Or other areas where alums are living?   Are you staying dry Painer?

Mary McKinney (Kommers)

We are fine, but Pleasanton, Ravenna, Gibbon, and Wood River definitely have major issues.  We had to delay our trip back from KC by a day because of road closures.  Guess we just made it through a window of open road on I-29 north of St. Jo to Nebr. City on Friday morning before that road was closed in the afternoon...guess the crest of the Missouri must be reaching that area.  I think the crest is supposed to reach KC by Monday or so.

We have a couple of little farms north of Hwy 30 between Shelton and Wood River.  The tenants tell us they are both underwater.  The expense for us will be how much ground work will need to be done and how the pumps on the wells fared.  This, of course, is nothing compared to the losses others face.  My heart goes out to the small town residents watching their homes and businesses flood and memories wash away, and the farmers/ranchers whose livestock, buildings, equipment and livelihood have been destroyed, as well as all the lives lost.  Nebraskans have always had their share of disasters whether floods, blizzards, droughts, twisters, hail, or plagues of grasshoppers.  Maybe because most Nebraskans are accustomed to, anticipate, or have heard of such hardships throughout generations, their kindness, compassion and generosity still make it the best place to live.  My heart is with Nebraska

Well said Janet!  Wonder whether Blocher's land went under water?

Randy Brown

Mike did not say anything about flooding around his place. Got a text from him today that his father passed yesterday at 95 years old. Burial will be in Greta, Thursday, if they can get there.

Martha Rivero (Helton)

Our sentiments exactly Janet. Our prayers are with everyone. We are heartbroken but know Nebraskans will get through.

Dick Garrelts (70)

Condolences to the Blocher family.  You are in our thoughts and prayers for the loss of your Dad, and during your hardships and devastation from the floods.

Just think what could have happened...  Every Nebraskan and every Mississippi Basin resident should now appreciate your efforts to resist the Pipeline.   Well done, Mike!

Mike Blocher

Thanks to all for the condolences Cheri and I received from you guys. We are grateful for your kind thoughts. We have been so fortunate to have enjoyed my dad for so long.  We are missing him terribly, especially mom. She is ninety-six, bless her heart. 

We also appreciate your concern in light of the ongoing flooding in Nebraska and Iowa. We are fine at our place with the major flooding occring ten miles north of us on the Elkhorn River. So many people have lost everything they own, including three fatalities.  Tens of thousands of all kinds of livestock were swept away, not to mention pets, feed, and crop land.  This is going to take years to overcome. Many farmers and ranchers will not be able to withstand these horrific losses. The counties in the flood areas were financially strapped before the infrastructure was ravaged. So many roads, bridges, culverts, dams, and levies were damaged or destroyed. Aid is pouring in from all over the nation. Conditions are even worse than portrayed in the news. 

Most communities in the state are providing ways to get assistance to those who need it most. We strongly encourage anyone who wants to help to support their local programs with donations to help with immediate emergency items and funding. The Red Cross Nebraska flood relief fund is also accepting monetary donations which will get $$ where urgently needed. 

A huge thank you to all of you who have already pitched in.
