Hi everyone. Now up to 134 Sunnyslope alumni that I am emailing to
here in and out of state. Here are some Sunnyslope thing that have
happened this last year to our Sunnyslope friends and family and the
area in review.
While most of you are in the class of 1976 that this goes to there
are others that are older and younger by several years. So some of
these may or may not pertain to you directly at times. Some of this
I am doing by memory and you might know it all ready or I sent it
out just to a small group of people before. Others I am using
Facebook the Sunnyslope class of 76 website Azcentral and other
friends messages to me.
I am going to do the sad news first to get it out of
the way. If you recall the teachers Mr. Larry Wolfrum , Mr. Riley L.
McBee , Mr. Fred McClure and finally Mr. Lipinski passed away this
This last year in the 1976 class we sadly lost two classmate. Cathy
Billings and Jeff Campbell. In other classes Long, William
Robert (Bill) 51.
Then this for anyone that might know of her or the family class of
Jennifer E. Schabert passed away.
My main thing is to once again remind you all of the
Sunnyslope Alumni Breakfast for ALL CLASSES. The *(FIRST)* Saturday
of each month so it will be next Saturday January 5th. It is as
always is the EYE Opener 524 W Hatcher. It is informal at around 8
Am or so till when ever. This last year the class of 1976 had 18
different people show up. I should of asked if I could put the names
down but I forgot to so I will not. We had 12 at the most at one
time (plus spouse's that did not go to Sunnyslope but are still
welcome) but average about six per breakfast now from the 1976
class. Had one person from Las Vegas from our class show several
times. So those that live in the area.......
In team sports Sunnyslope rallies to take Division II
Congrats.... Sunnyslope High School Baseball Team.. 2012 Div II
State Champs. Then the girls volleyball also won the state
championship. The girls have done this now for five years in a row I
Who recalls the old Northgate Bowling alley on 12 ST
and Dunlap? Anyway it is now called Let it Roll. A bunch of current
Pro and EX Pro sports people and announcers held a fund raiser at
it. EX Phoenix Suns and friend Cedric Ceballos's Charity event held
it. BTW the Jeff Fields at the start of the youtube is the son of
the teacher Terry Fields the English teacher at Sunnyslope.
Here is some Sunnyslope area websites you might be
interested in as far a community activities and what has and is
going on. For instance at different times of the year they have a
art walk around the whole area south of JCL in the old Food City
parking lot all the way down Central several block Bands and food
and what not.
Then to get all the info about the past history of
Sunnyslope you can check this out for the hours that they are open.
BTW the end of 2011 S
Mountain became a historic site. And then part of the mountain
Other Sources that I have used>
BTW the two Facebook websites different reunions are
being planned for different classes so you might want to check them
I might have missed one or two websites as references
been doing this now for a couple hours and doing other things.
If anyone has anything else that they think I should put out let me
know. Or any questions and feel free to resend out to others. Now to
call six people that do not do email

Sorry I am behind on this but just a reminder. I was going to
send this out two weeks ago for the people out of town and
state. Big goof on my part.
Sunnyslope home coming is this Friday Oct 5th night.
It is against Apollo. I am planning on going. I am going to
try and get to it a little bit earlier at about 6:30 or a little
after. If you want to see me email me.
Anyway the Sunnyslope
alumni breakfast for all classes is the next morning Oct 6th at
around eight or so. Informal. It is at the Eye Opener at 524 W
Hatcher. Hope to see you at one or the other.
You need any more info
contact me about this or anything Sunnyslope thing feel free
to ask and I will try and help out.

Just a reminder about the
first Saturday of each month Breakfast. This Saturday May 5th
around eight, the breakfast will be held at the Eye Opener Hatcher
and 6th Ave. Informal as all get out. Bring family friends or
whoever. - H.S.
Desk of Harry Spangler, January 2012
hope you are having a great 2012 so far all eleven hours or so.
Sending this out to out of state people also because so many are in
and out of town over the next week or so but not sure how long you
will be here.
Anyway this Saturday January 7 is the first Saturday in each month
breakfast. It is up on Hatcher at the Eye Opener at eight AM or so.
Not a set time or anything you can sit any place and just eat and
talk to those around you. Any question ask. Oh I am planning on
bring up the 76 class photo and year book. Any one else feel free to
bring your along.
OHHHHHHH BTW congrats to the Sunnyslope girls volleyball team that
won a other state title. I believe it is about the last five out of
six years that they have done so well.
Someone was asking me about Nancy Porter the Sunnyslope teacher
among some other teachers. Sorry forgot who it was. Anyway saw on a
Sunnyslope Facebook page (one of the many) someone posted she was on
Facebook if that person or anyone what to go find her.
And I think that is about all the info I have.... -HS
Desk of Harry Spangler, August 26, 2011
I hope everyone is doing well.
Been a busy long summer for everyone.
Anyway this is going out to 70 people just not in the class of 1976. I
know a lot of you have other Sunnyslope people class mates as family and
friends. Could you pass it on or mention some of the below things.
First just a reminder of the First Saturday of each month breakfast for
all classes at eight in the morning at the Eye Opener at Hatcher and 6th
Avenue. So September 3rd hope to see you then for those that can make it
that early in the morning.
Anyway for those not in the area here are two other things.
For the first game Sunnyslope beat Washington 28-26 last night so they
are so far doing well. I am a little bit late getting this out but the
website below is important for the success of the football program. A
couple parents showed up (the coach wanted to be around but practice was
being held) at the last breakfast and brought up this website for info
into the football program. I was really surprised that it takes $50,000
to run the Sunnyslope football program. Among other things you can buy
shirts, hats and other fund raising and sponsorship things. Also have
other things like ad space if you go though the website. The schedule is
also up. The homecoming game is against South Mountain October 14 at
seven. Boy the schedule of teams have really changed from 1976 for some
of us around the time frame.
Also S Mountain if anyone is around and seen it more and more houses are
being built on the side of it. One small tiny path to go up to paint the
S now. Anyway the Sunnyslope Historical Society is looking to get the
Mountain designated a historic site by the state or nation or preserved
in some way. Not sure how they plan to but if you might know how are be
interested in helping contact me and I can forward you to the people in
charge. One other thing along the S mountain. The historical society
would like to know with your name and what year you graduated how you
recall painting the S. What you did who were some of the people around
them and what ever. You can send them to me and I will forward them.
Any questions? I most likely do not have the answers..... But will pass
it on to someone that may.
