There will be a Class of 1963 breakfast this month of January 2022!!

At WOODBURN, OR next Saturday January 22, 2022

10:00 A.M. at the Country Cottage Restaurant

1776 Country Club Road, Woodburn

(From I-5, take Exit 271, go east on Newberg Hwy (OR 214) to 2nd traffic signal. Turn left, go to Woodburn Estates & Golf at 1776 Country Club Road.  Entrance to restaurant is to right of WEB Pro Shop.)

[Please note: next Saturday is the 4th Saturday of the month, and we were used to meeting on the 3rd Saturday, AND we were used to gathering at 9:30 A.M. but we're all older now, so 10:00 A.M. will be helpful to those who travel a ways to get there!]

Shirley (Pykonen) and Jim Taylor just decided it was time for the class to get together once again, so they made the arrangements for us, and all are invited!

If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Shirley & Jim at email or call

503 860-8912,  Please let them know by Friday, January 21 so they can notify the restaurant.

In Latest News, a video about one of Vern Hall's business interests, San-I-Pak Inc.  A good report, in this current dark period of our history...






Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we did NOT hold the 57th Annual Class Reunion as we had planned to do. We hope we that we can reunite for the 59th in the summer of year 2022!

If you have any news you would like to share with the class, please send it to

and I will post it here on the website.



We started having monthly class breakfasts 19 years ago, in February 2002!  That was when a small group gathered in Salem area to begin working on trying to locate all the class members, prior to our 40th reunion that was scheduled for the following year!  During those 19 years, we've only missed 3 times (until Covid-19 hit)--once when we scheduled the breakfast in central Oregon & no one showed up, and two other times when we cancelled the event due to severe weather limitations!   GO CUBS




Did you know?  Our site has now been viewed more than 70,000 times! 

This site has had 70,133 visits since we started it in November 2013!




To make it easier for planning our calendars:

Based on our breakfast location history of the past few years, here is a  more-or-less schedule that we have begun using for our upcoming breakfasts . It is "more-or-less" because we can always make a change if it seems good to do so.  (For example, say if someone who lives farther away than Western Oregon should happen to come through, we are always happy to change our schedule to a date or location so they would be able to join us!!)                               


Jan. & July       Woodburn or Wilsonville area

Feb. & Aug.      Newport

Mar. & Sept.     Spirit Mountain, Grand Ronde 

Apr & Oct.        Tigard, Tualatin or elsewhere on I-5

May & Nov.       Albany

June & Dec.     Salem  

The idea is to make the breakfast sites reachable for as many classmates as possible!

Do YOU have other ideas?  Other locations where you would like to meet for breakfast?  In the past we have tried the Eugene area a few times, but the turnout there was usually low.  We have never met in Corvallis, so that is another possibility.    Would really like to hear your ideas!

Please contact us at and let us hear your ideas!

Need your help:  We have NO pictures in the "Pictures of Years Past" Sections for the 1950s and the 1980s.  If you have some that you would like to share, please contact us at  If you will loan them to Pat, she will scan them & return to you promptly!


If you would like to have a better-quality copy of any of the photos from this site,  please "Contact Us" and we will be glad to email the digital file to you!  PPH
