The Mountain Iron High class of 1959 website


Welcome to The Mt. Iron High class of 1959 reunion web site.   The site has been somewhat dormant since our 50th reunion at Giants Ridge in 2009.   We are reactivating it now with a plan for a reunion in Colorado in August.   The following note that I received from Tom and Karen Thorne will provide the details:

     We are busy planning our Mt. Iron High School Reunion to be held in the beautiful Colorado mountains!   The exact dates are:  August 9-13 - arriving on Thursday, August 9 and departing on Monday, August 13.   Everyone can choose to stay for a longer period of time - or a shorter one.

     We have blocked rooms at the Ptarmigan Lodge in Dillon, Colorado (the lodge sits right on the Dillon Reservoir).   Each person should make thier own reservations by calling 970-468-2341 - be sure to mention it is a group under the name XXXX.  The rate per night varies and is between $95-$110/per night depending upon bed size and day.  You must call to make your reservations by July 16.

     We are working on various activities for everyone - golf, hiking, sightseeing, surprise get-together on Friday night, concert on Saturday night, etc. - with more information to follow.

     Attached is a current list of people who said they hope to attend, those not attending and those we have been unable to reach.   If you have any information different from this or can help us find people - please either call or email at 303-274-1875 or   We are really looking forward to seeing everyone - it promises to be a great time!

Many thanks to Tom and Karen for taking on the task of arranging this reunion.  It was great to be on the Iron Range for our 50th, but Coloado will provide both a place for the reunion and a wonderful place to visit and vacation.   Those of you who have not been "found" and contacted, but have come across this web-site, please contact Tom about the reunion, and then sign in to the site.

If you have information on someone who has not responded, please let us know.

Thanks, and we are looking forward to seeing you in August.

                                                                                                                                                                   Sincerely,      Josie Zganjar (Charmoli)



Old information     

Please log-in and check the information in your profile (“Classmate Profiles”).  You can edit that information and then build your profile.  

When viewing the profiles of classmates who have not yet registered, you need not respond to the request for their e-mail address.   Instead, check the “Missing Classmates” box which list the classmates for whom we do not have e-mail addresses.   If you know any of these addresses, please pass the information on to us or put it into the "missing Classmates automatic response section" (to your right ----> and down a bit).

Most of the black boxes are intuitive.   We can create additional “boxes” containing any type of information.   Let us know.   We divided the “Photo” boxes into those from the annual, those from the 35th reunion, from High School, from the earlier All School Reunion, and finally from our 50th reunion.  You can up-load photos into your profile.   Let us know if you would like any of those duplicated in one of the five “Photo” boxes on the Home Page.

We will need some time and some help to update the profiles, missing classmates, and deceased classmates information.   You can help in this regard by providing whatever information you have in these categories.   Thanks!

Josie Charmoli Zganjar will continue to administer this web site for now, but she will gladly transfer it to the the "organizer" of a future reunion.   It should be a “living” site to which we can all contribute.   Please participate, communicate, have fun, get excited, and hopefully we will see you in Colorado in August

Josie Zganjar (Charmoli).
