Class of 74 takes reunion to new heights


Fri, Mar 12th, 2004
Posted in Features

Class reunions, for many, conjure up images of boring hotel ballroom dinners where spouses are dragged along kicking and screaming. That’s definitely not the case for Spring Valley High School’s Class of 1974. Eight members of this close-knit class and several spouses traveled last month to the beautiful pacific resort area of Ixtapa – Zihuatanejo, Mexico to mark their 30-year reunion. Now back in the States, they gathered last week at the home of classmate, Rebecca Shedeen Goodsell and husband, Dan, to reminisce about their experience and to share photos and stories.

“Life’s too short not to enjoy it,” said Robyn Majors Anderson, who along with husband Dan were members of the Ixtapa reunion. Robyn was instrumental in planning the class’s 25- year reunion trip to Las Vegas and was more than eager to participate in another excursion with former classmates. The Ixtapa trip was instigated by Spring Valley business owners and classmates Terry Fetterly and Rebecca Goodsell. “I liked the fact that Ixtapa was laid back and not overly commercialized and was a place where everyone could relax and just do what they wanted,” Rebecca said. “I loved that the only thing that was planned was our flight.” After a fun reunion in Vegas, Fetterly knew members of his class would be up for another trip. “We had a blast in Vegas – the spouses all are great and so flexible – we knew we just wanted to go someplace with the group again,” said Terry, who started plans for the reunion last September. Terry and wife Deb had been to Ixtapa several times before and helped promote the resort’s virtues. “It’s a non-bustling resort area where the weather is always perfect – everything you need is within 10 miles,” Terry said. And according to travel brochures, the mean average temperature is 82 and it’s almost always sunny. So Ixtapa it was!

Jan Durbahn, a Stewartville travel agent and mother of a former classmate, helped make arrangements for the trip. She made special red and black luggage tassels to commemorate 1974 school colors and to help keep the group’s baggage together while in transport. “It was a special touch,” said Robyn, who saved the fringed tag as a memento of the special reunion trip.

Members of Spring Valley’s Class of 1974 who attended the 30-year reunion celebration in tropical Mexico included Susan Strike Claypool, Kathy Esklund Baarsch, Glen McNamara and wife, Jean; Kathy Koball Scherger and husband D .....
