TAYLOR, Jeff - 1964 
 @ Chas: 1960-62
Houston, TX
2-10-10  my brother Ron Taylor and i played on the Chad Golf Team. Ron graduated in 61. I played on the golf team with Terry Bell, Jim Parson and Ron Nelson in 60-62. Recognized many of the posted names, like Buzz Santos, Gary Williams, Mike Stone. My dad had mike mansfield puegeot put back together from parts in 61 and rode it until i left in 62. Hope to hear from those of you that might remember.

2-15-10   I attended Chateauroux High School  60-62.  I completed the 10th grade and then my family and i moved back to the states during the summer of 62.  I graduated in 64 at Orange High School, Orange, Ca.(Southern California).  My brother Ron Taylor recently registered on your website, and he graduated Chad High in 61.  My younger sister was in grade school while in Chateauroux.  Both my brother and I were very active in golf, we played on the Chad High golf team with Terry Bell, Ron Nelson, Jim Parsons.  I won the france championship in either 61 or 61, and was a member of that golf team when we won the european team championship in 62.  Buz Santos and his group of friends with puegeot moped where some of the guys I hung around at times.  How do i go about getting the information previously sent on the guest page to be positioned on the alphabetized T page.  How do we go about adding pictures, etc.  Finally i noticed the last year book was 1960.  Was their a 61 and 62 yearbooks.  Thanks again for your great work on your website.  Jeff Taylor

2/11/00 - Comments: Jenelle, this is great. What a wonderful way to get back in touch with old friends. Thank you for all your work. I was in Chas from 61-66 -class of 67, which, of course, didn't make it to graduation in Chas. Been married for 19+ years and have a soon-to-be-15 year old daughter. Have lived in CA for 13+ years. Would love to hear from old friends. It's great reading about what everyone is doing, and even better hearing from old friends and exchanging notes. Kathy Teunon (Pinneo)

 01/26/2002 Lots of good memories of friends and times. My brother Don and I, along with Steve and Bill, formed a small  (and not very good) band, which played at a few of the dances.  Riding the last shuttle bus back to the housing area from the movies; even better with a girlfriend; watching the football games; enjoying and remembering the cameraderie.

Searching for:  Steve DeCamp, John Melvin, [found & connected] Ken Mayberry, Anyone that remembers us.

Jim and Linda Thompson, the last 35 years: 

8-20-06  Thanks for the walk dowm memory lane. It is always good to look back and think about the good times and bad, just to keep the cobwebs from filling the dead space in the orb on the shoulders. As we get older memories really do start to fade. Thanks again, and I'll be back soon. Jim "64"

Looking for Steve DeCamp. Haven't seen him since around 1970. Steve DeCamp and I enlisted.   I ran into Steve Belbot in 1966 August I believe as I was getting ready to leave Clark AB PI. Haven't seen since ??????

THOMPSON, Susan Michaelis - 1963
@ Chas: 1961(?)-1964
 Fargo, North Dakota
2/24/01 - Comments: Jenelle, you are to be commended for a great job. "Thanks" is not enough for finding me and getting me in touch with those that were part of some great years. I had lost hope of ever finding anyone connected to Chateauroux High School. I graduated (1963) there and married day afterwards. I have 4 great children & 5 beautiful granddaughters. They are further a way from me than I would like. I have a great job. I am looking forward to going south again. Some of those I remember are Judy and Ron Perkins (they had a younger brother) and Carol McFarland and she had another sister and younger brother. They were the greatest of friends and helped me through some hard times. They probably didnt realize it at time. I read the guest book and would love to hear from you. Is there a reunion anytime in near future? Would love to see some of the "ole gang." Take care and God Bless You.
NEW NOTE: 12/04/2001: Hi everyone! I have been down memory lane for the second time and am so glad to see names I recognize. For those faces that are a little fuzzy can look in books to remember how they looked. "Thank you" is just not enough for Jenelle and those that have contributed in making this website. It is terrific! I am still looking to get in touch with Judy Perkins and some of the other people that I enjoyed some good times. The one memory I have is when my fiance, brother and friend were driving around we had stopped to pick some grapes. The French farmer came out of house with shotgun and howling dog and actually shot the gun off. He managed to scare the guys so they squashed the grapes on jackets. lol funny now but was serious business then. It has been brought to me how important people are in our lives. Would love to hear from you. Hope you all are well and happy. God Bless you all. Su

1-18-00 - Comments: I attended Chad HS from 1955 to 1958 (during my 7th -9th grades). I located and signed on to and received a message the next day from Chaz Allen, who came to Chateauroux in 1961. I spent two years in the states and graduated from Forrest Sherman High School in Naples, Italy (1961). Attended college for two years and then enlisted in the AF 63-67. Attended and graduated from IU. Married (30 years) with two children (son and daughter). Recently, located McDawson Burton who was in my freshman class. Another freshman classmate Gerald (Jerry) Murch  lives in MN. As Mac said, we all were involved in the scouts. Left France in August '58 and returned to upper state NY for two years before going back overseas.  Would like to hear from anyone who might have been in Chad during the years I was there.  Hope to hear from someone.
