ANNOUNCEMENTS

The PAHS Paris in the Northwest Reunion was a great success! 

If you were there - it was great seeing you - and if you didn't make it - we missed you.

Now that we’re all unpacked from the 2018 Portland Reunion and the reunion committee has had a chance to catch its breath, here are some of our findings. These come both from the survey the committee did of those attending and the anecdotal comments shared by many of the attendees.

We had 69 total attendees including 26 couples, from classes ranging from the late 1950s to the early 1970s. Quite a few of you were attending your first PAHS Reunion and were very glad that you finally joined us for this one.

Top Three Things We Did Well

  • Emails and information-sharing about the reunion, including things to do and see during free time
  • Providing a balance among events (reception, dinner-dance), excursions (wine tasting, brunch cruise), and unstructured free time
  • The location of the hotel, especially its “walkability” proximity to sights and attractions in downtown Portland

One Thing You Want Us To Do Differently Or Improve

  • Provide a larger and more comfortable hospitality suite

You shared other things with us in each of the above two categories, which we have noted. The above things were the ones that really boomed out to us in the survey results and your stories.

Future Reunions

  • Four out of five of you said we should have a 2020 reunion France. Your thinking (and that of the committee) is that we are not getting any younger. With advancing age travel becomes more problematic for some of us. So, your committee will move ahead early next year with planning for a 2020 France reunion.
  • 2022 was the heavy favorite for the next stateside reunion, with folks having about an equal preference for DC-area and New Orleans based reunions. Other potential reunion locations trailed significantly.

So… Start saving your money if you’d like to join us in France during 2020. Based upon the costs of our 2015 France reunion, if you put aside about $200 to $300 a month, you should have enough to cover most of the costs, depending of course upon where you will travel from, and how large your party.

See you all in France!

Fellow Pirates - we need your help. We would like to develop a list of where past reunions have taken place. Would you please drop us a line and tell us about any reunion of which you are aware. If you can provide the year, the city and the hotel we can perhaps fill in some of the gaps in our history. Thanks for your help.

Hello Fellow Pirates!
My name is Bart Bartlett (PAHS 1957) and I am deeply involved in trying to develop a history of our school. I know that PAHS was first established in 1952 and held classes at 53 Rue de la Faisanderie in what is now the embassy of Iraq.

I believe the first school was called "Paris American School." At some point in the early 1950's the US military built the school complex including an elementary school, a high school and two dormitories in Garsche near St. Cloud, Paris, France. We all know that the last full class year was 1966 but some students attended part of the 1967 school year until they went to either Mons, Belgium or Stuttgart, Germany.

I am trying to fill in the gap between 1950 and 1967. I am looking for information on the school itself, information on teachers and administrators, who attended as a "dorm rat" and any other information you can share to fill in the time line. Pictures would be fantastic as well!

I understand that Joan Jordan Imus had at one time developed some history of the school and wrote a blog. If anyone has kept this information I would appreciate a copy.

If you can help please email me at bartbartlett3@att.net. Many thanks - hope this works!

Hello All!

Living in Seattle. All three of our children families nearby.

Lots of travel still ...but slowing down

Been back to Paris dozens of times over the years. My wife Jill in our yearbook. She was one year younger at BERLIN AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOL.

Occasionally see PAHS grads who served in Army. Ben Sternberg. Tony Janero. Etc.

Best wishes. Barry. barryrwmccaffrey@gmail.com

Head honcho. Hate that you have retired. Thank you so much for all that you have done in keeping the PAHS alumni in communication with another. We took you for granted. Thank you.

PAHS.....Saw this article and thought some would enjoy it.
