Christensen, John

Mary (Cleese) Roybal ’70; Kathy (Roney) ’70 & Lee Schegg ’70; Sue (Drake) ’70 & Tom Walsh ’70; Bob Peterson ’70 and wife Henneke; and Julie Burns ’70 and husband John Christensen '70 have been having a ball as they visit national parks each year.  So far the group has visited Yosemite, Kings Canyon, and Sequoia in California; Bryce, Zion, and Grand Staircase Escalante in Utah; North Rim of Grand Canyon in Arizona; Glacier in Montana; the Columbia River Gorge & Mount Hood (not yet a national park) in Oregon; and most recently Banff, Jasper, Kootenay, Yoho, and Glacier in Canada. They writes, “The gatherings started with a memorial to Dave Roybal '70, in Tuolomne Meadows in Yosemite several summers ago. We decided to gather again at Sequoia/Kings Canyon. This has now evolved into an annual event. We find that we share great community with lots of laughs, and being of the same age group we can relate to shared experiences—Vietnam, raising families, careers, and now grandparenting.  It shows that friendships that started in the dorms and classes freshman year can be rediscovered and last into the future.”
