Hi, and a
great big thanks to everyone who worked so very hard this week-end for
the 150th celebration. Absolutely everything was wonderful, Everything!!
As I have said before, Goldfield is the best little town anywhere, it
always has been, and continues to be!! Thanks for a great celebration!

Your web site is wonderful. It is nice to look back and see the class
pictures. You are doing a great job.
class of 1963
After living out west most of my adult life, I have finally come home.
I retired in 1997 from working for the USDA Forest Service (Federal Government)
after nearly 25 years. Interestingly enough, there are few trees in Iowa
so all of those years I never had the opportunity to transfer back to
Iowa. However, in 1995, I did transfer from Montana to the Upper Peninsula
of Michigan (that was as close as I could get at the time) and retired
from there. I then moved to Eau Claire, Wisconsin living 25 miles from
my older sister Mary Jo. In 1999 I became reacquainted with my high school
sweetheart, Ellis Macha of Renwick. We were married this last July 9th
near Branson, MO. It was a beautiful time and all 7 of our children, and
6 out of 7 of our grandchildren were able to attend. Also attending was
my sister Pat (class of 61), my sister Mary Jo (class of 59) and my brother
Jim (class of 65). It was great fun for all of us. For those of you who
may not remember us, we were the Templeton kids. We moved to Goldfield
in 1955 (I was in the 5th grade)--my Dad Floyd managed the cheese factory,
and my mother Margaret was a Registered Nurse who worked in Webster City.
Both of my parents are gone now. Although I have no immediate family in
the area, I have always, and always will, considered Goldfield and this
area to be "home". So as I have said, I've come home and Ellis and I live
north of Renwick on the farm. While I have seen and visited with some
"Goldfieldites" since I've been back in the area I would welcome hearing
from any of you who may remember me or my family. Barbara Templeton Macha - Renwick, Iowa
Class of 1986
If anyone from the class of 1986 looks at this website, please contact
me. Our class has NEVER had a class reunion. Our 20th will be here before
we know it. Let's get one planned. I, Amy Pardun Woodruff, live in Arkansas,
but I could make some plans. Let me know if you are interested.
From a Humboldt Alumni Class of 1953
I am not a graduate of Goldfield, but I wanted to congratulate you on
your web site. It is terrific!! I wish my high school had such a site.
I graduated from Humboldt HIgh School in 1953 and worked at the skating
rink while I was in high school, and met several girls from Goldfield.
I remember Carol Rasmussen, Arlene Lester, Janice Anderson, and Arlene
Gangsted. There were others too, but I can't remember their names. If
any of them want to contact me by email, that would be great. I also remember
going to Goldfield on some summer nights to watch merchant movies. That
was a lot of fun. I also remember watching basketball games in the building
on main street--the games were played in the upstairs of the building.
Again, congratulations on your web site.

Charlotte Harvey Linden From
the Class of 1957:
I also received the message
about Martha's death from her son, Paul. I had just emailed Martha
earlier this week. You will probably receive alot of messages from
her students. Martha was a wonderful English teacher, but she
was more than a teacher--she listened to her students without judging
them and she became our friend. She started teaching in
Goldfield in 1955 when she was 39 years old. Her husband, Bob, was
the Methodist pastor in Dows. She didn't stay at Goldfield too many
years, as Methodist pastors move every few years. All students were
special to her, but the class of 1957 had a special bond with her.
She kept track of each one of us and corresponded with us. I have
had a Christmas card from Martha every year since I graduated from high
school in 1957. Martha was always helping others and often worked
with students and adults needing to learn the English language, even
after she moved to Oskaloosa. During the early 1980s Martha and Bob
lived in Tucson AZ . When Eric & I visited them there,
she was tutoring Indian children. When she and Bob lived
by the lake near Terrill, my husband Eric and I would sometimes stop and
visit them. I last saw Martha when she came to Mason City to a
surprise retirement party the family had for me at the Holiday Inn.
I'm going to miss getting her emails.
