Holly Larsen Well everybody, it's been almost 15 years since we've all been together in Onekama.  I'm sure that your lives are all so much different than you ever thought they would be.  I know mine sure is.  I married Mike in 1995 and I was blessed to be a stay-at-home mom for 10 years, taking care of my daughters Makayla (12 yrs) and Briana (9 yrs).  During most of this time I also ran my own business teaching cooking classes for The Pampered Chef(R).  In January of 2007 I began working in Manistee as a Dental Assistant at High-Tech Dental.  This is something that I NEVER even considered doing but I've found that I really enjoy! New e-mail May 2008   larsenfam4@hotmail.com

Carrie Baczewski Urbalejo: My husband and I are living in Tucson, Arizona and we are both  teachers. I have taught 4th grade for 7 years and he teaches 3rd  grade. I have only been back to Onekama twice since 1996. I live in  the desert so I really miss having different seasons. I even miss all the snow. I haven't really talked to very many of you in the last 15 
years. Jonathan and I just had our first child in November 2007. She 
is our little miracle baby because she was only 26 weeks when I had  her. She spent 4 months in the hospital and we were able to finally bring her home on February 27, 2008. I still love animals. We have 4 shih-tzus, a cocker spaniel, and a cat. I also have class pets for my students. My e-mail address is urbalejoc@vail.k12.az.us
New April 2008 I have included  a picture of Emily on class photo page.

Melissa Butler Falk : Hello!  This website is pretty neat!  Jim and I have been married for 13 years in April...WOW did I just say 13 years???  Time goes by so fast!  We have three very cute and energetic children.  Twin girls, Madison and Kylie, who are now 7 and in 1st grade.  They were born on Christmas Eve in 1999.  Garrett was a wonderful addition just over a year later and he is almost 6 and in kindergarten.  Jim is the absolute perfect father and husband!  We are very lucky!  I have been at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing for 9 years doing acute physical therapy.  I love it!  I am also in nursing school.  I am just wondering how many irons I can get in the fire at one time!  We live in Charlotte which is south of Lansing.  Jim has been a police officer down here for 13 years.  He works for the city of Charlotte.  I enjoyed reading about all of you on the webpage.  I am also up for a reunion since it has been 14 years!  Take care everyone!  My e-mail address is falkjmmkg@netzero.com  Added March 2007

Tonya (Best) Kneller: Hi Everybody!!  I am currently living in Fishers, Indiana (just north of Indianapolis) with my husband Tim and 9 month old son Benjamin. Photo of Ben   I am an early childhood speech-language pathologist for one of the largest and fastest growing school districts in Indiana.  I agree with Joanna, let's have a 15-year reunion so we can all get together.

Sarah Yzenbaard, e-mail: Superstar_2002 at hotmail.com   Hello! I Just got news of this website from Joanna. I think that it is neat. I am finishing school right now with a womens' studies major. I am planning to be married sometime this fall and have a 7 month old son. My son's name is Siebrand Leo Kipfmueller and he is the focus of my life right now. Things are great. I hope everyone else is doing well. See photograph of Siebrand on Class of 93 Photo Page

Issac Matthews: Updated Sept. 06   Once again our plans have changed.  We have moved to Kalamazoo and are finding the change in climate from florida harder to get used to than we thought... WE ARE FREEZING!!!  Things are going great, we are both glad to be back home.  Florida
was nice but it is way to hot and to far away from both of our families.  We also have moved up the date of the wedding and will be wed on November 4th of this year.  Laura has added some pictures to her profile so you can see us there.  If anybody wants please email either of us and let us know how you are doing.  Also I was wondering if we were ever going to have a reunion.  Its been about 12 years since I have seen anybody from high school so it would be nice to get back in touch with a few old class mates.  Anyway, not much else going on, you can email me @ bluemazefanatic@yahoo.com or Laura @ jaws2biteshard@yahoo.com

Charity Bradford Domres emad@charter.net / Photograph Wow! it has been years since I have sent in an update. Karl and I have been married 12 year now and it is amazing the things that have happened in those 12 years.  We are still living in his Grandfather's farm house and have 3 children.  Elizabeth is 9 years old and in 3rd grade, Maggie is 7 and is in 2nd grade, and Adam is 4 and in preschool.  They all attend Onekama.  We are very involved in 4-H (3 horses, 1 donkey, 3 pygmy goats, 2 rabbits, and 1 dog), Dance and Ukulele.  In my spare time, I am starting my 9th year with my sign business.  Karl is now working for Elmer's Crane and Dozer in Traverse City and is enjoying it.

April Davideit Kilbourn e-mail: aprillakeshore at chartermi.net updated 7-04 Hey to all! I am still in Onekama, and loving it!  It is funny how we couldn't stand it when WE were growing up, but now that I have a child of my own, I am perfectly content here, Courtney will be 7 already this year and is attending Onekama, of course. I have been remarried for 2 1/2 years now and live right behind lucky John Burtch here in Onekama.  I am the Office Manager for a Beer and Wine Distributor in Manistee, which is quite a fun job!  Other than that, not much has changed here!  Look forward to hearing from anyone interested!
