Mason Brown: racinmason@familyonline.com Hello! It's almost been 20 years!? Man, I'm old. Shhh...don't tell anyone. I'm in denial. What have I been doing? Well, after school I went in the Army. Spent what seemed like half a lifetime in school while being all I could be. Got out in '91 and decided big-city life wasn't for me anymore, so I moved to Manistee where I still live. I am working at the ever controversial PCA as a Papermill Supervisor. I'm still into music and anything on two wheels. I am looking forward to the 20 year reunion.....hopefully there is one. If we need any help coordinating, please feel free to contact me. Just a quick update...I married a wonderful person named Rachael and just had our first child, Liam. He was born a little over a week ago at West Shore. Now life truly begins! I figured I had better hurry if children were to be in my future. Can you believe it's been 20 YEARS!!! The reunion planning is in it's starting phase. I hope everyone has the opportunity to attend. I have a new e-mail  6/26/05 racinmason@familyonline.com

Jean (Cain) Clous e-mail: jnclst@msn.com 1/06 Hey all! I married Brian Clous on 12/31/2002. We are currently residing in the city of Traverse City and co-own a General Contracting/Residential Construction Company (www.progressivebuildinganddesign.com  ). Cory (5/23/90) is now a sophomore at Bear Lake where he plays golf on the Bear Lake/Brethren golf team, making all conference #1 seed in their division for 2 years in a row *bragging*. After taking a small break from the golf course, Cory then begins basketball season- thus far being undefeated for the 2005-06 season. "GO LAKERS!" Cory is very much looking forward to getting his license in the spring *GULP*. Ronni (11/4/91), now a Freshman at Bear Lake, keeps busy with her horse "Flash" that she boards at Casalae Farms in Traverse City. She shows him at the Northwest Michigan Fair in Traverse City and shows throughout the state acquiring many ribbons. *bragging again*. Ronni also plays volleyball and runs track. When the kids aren't keeping us busy with their events, Brian and I have a membership at the GT Resort where we take place in tennis leagues and mixers and just "whack some balls". You have my e-mail, get a hold of me, let's get together and do sumpin'. =-)

Hi everyone. 
   Well, it took a tragedy for me to realize we all need to keep in touch on a more regular basis.  I just attended Bart Mathieu's Funeral today November 5th 2007.  What a sad day.  I will always cherish the wonderful memories of the times with Bart and the wonderful friendship we all had with him.
   As far as my life.  Just to update those of you who I haven't talked to.  I have been married to my husband Dave for 16 years.  We have two children a daughter Rebecca who is 9 years old and a son Brendan who is 7 years old. We live in Zeeland Michigan .  I am still a Police Officer for the City of Holland and my husband works for a company called Proos Manufacturing in Grand Rapids.  We get "up north" as often as we can.  We try to come to my mom's place on Chief Lake for a few weeks each July.
     I would welcome emails from all of you and lets start to brainstorm on our next class reunion. Take care everyone and if you talk to anyone who is not signed up on the class web site please encourage them to do so.
Hope to see you guys soon.

Joel Briske 8/09 Update
I hope everyone is doing well.  I am always missing Onekama…it is funny how that works.  Here is a short summary of what I’ve been up to since I left Onekama.  I am still in the Air Force and can retire now.  However, I am still having a good time and will stay on a few more years.   I am also an adjunct professor at a community college and enjoy teaching very much.  I am currently pursuing my Doctorates Degree in Education at the University of Wyoming.  I have spent seven years living overseas in Great Britain, Turkey, Greenland, Guam.  In 1998 I purchased a piece of property in Onekama Township and my wife and I plan on retiring there soon.  I am married to Kelcy Stefansson (Retired Police officer with the United States Park Police) and have three daughters, Cheryl 26, Shannon 24 and Jamie 18.  Cheryl is working towards her Registered Nurse certification, Shannon is in her second year of her Doctors of Physical Therapy program at the 
 University of New Mexico.  Jamie is a freshman at the University of Nebraska pursuing a Biochemistry (pre-dental) degree.  I enjoyed seeing everyone during our twenty year class reunion and would love to hear from you. E-mail:  joel.briske@yahoo.com
