Yes! Attending Reunion

After high I attend BYU. I met my sweetheart in 1970 while we were performing in "Promised Valley," for the LDS church.
I have owned a successful ballet school, helped start the Sandy City Arts Council, was the Artistic Director and founder of Mountain West Ballet (retired), theatre director for Bumbleberry Playhouse, choreographer for Sandy and Murray City summer theatre, and I have run a restaurant (not my favorite). I have taught 4th, 5th, and 6th grades in public elementary schools, and earned two Master Degrees in Education, a National Board Certified teacher, and an elementary school principal in Granite School District.

I have been busy working in community theater directing, choreographing, and costuming for several plays. The arts are my second love, after my family :)

We are working with Fun for Less Tours as tour managers. We have visited Alaska, the Middle East, Antarctica, South America, crossed from ocean to ocean through the Panama Canal, and will be traveling on the Silk Road as tour managers in August - September.

Karen, , I know you'll have a GREAT BIRTHDAY!
You may not know that Steve Lindgren is back home from his back surgery and has some good days and bad days-please keep him in your prayers....
On a humorous note: When I turned 61 we chose to go to The BIG TEXAN in Amarillo, TX and try on that 72oz steak-which is FREE if you can eat it, a Shrimp Cocktail, a dinner Salad and THREE JALAPINOS...all in one hour...I had to HANG my HEAD in SHAME...I could only eat HALF of it! Your friend, JOHN Adamson could have EASILY eaten the WHOLE THING in an hour!
My dad called him "Hollow Legs Adamson" because from the time we were Deacons in the Federal Heights Ward, he could eat as MUCH as me or any of my 3 brothers! Looks like he finally GREW into a bit of height from all of his consumption over the years! I'll bet you or one of your family members could have EATEN it all! ;0)
I know you'll have a great day, surrounded by your family & friends.... Brian B
