2020 Reunion Set for October 16th and 17th, 2020!

 

The Jupiter Old School Reunion Committee met on June 25th for the official first meeting. After reviewing events since the last reunion in 2017, the Committee set out to discuss the potential dates for the 2020 reunion. Mainly the discussion centered on October vs. February. After deciding that both options were worthy, the Committee decided to hold the next reunion on October 16th and 17th. October mainly won out due to February’s more crowded conditions and potentially higher prices. Also, we have tentative reservations at the Civic Center and at Abacoa Country Club in October.
 
The Committee’s next meeting is on August 27th. Several people will be working before then on firming up our reservations and exploring additional activities. For now, the two main events are an informal get-together on Friday, October 16th, at the old Civic Center at the beach and a slightly fancier dinner at Abacoa Country Club on Saturday, October 17th.
 
Additional events discussed were a golf outing, a Thursday get together where people could casually meet, and a pot luck Sunday picnic at or near a beach. These ideas will be explored before the next meeting and additional possibilities sought.
 
A target cost of $55 to $75 was set. Further discussions with the facilities need to take place and potential research with caterers will be initiated with that budget in mind.
 
The Committee also welcomes volunteers to help out with planning. There were nine people involved in the meeting but more would certainly help.
 
 

This was part of our original announcement of the 2020 Reunion:

 

Even though these dates are pretty far away, we thought it would be wise to give everyone ample time to mark their calendars. We would also love to get more people involved. That way no one would have to work too hard. After all, we’re not getting any younger.

We’d love to hear from you about these ideas and whether you would like to attend. Feel free to leave a comment in the Message Forum section or contact any of us directly.

Great Newspaper Clippings from 1965!

 

Mike and Judy Barnes were kind enough to scan some clippings from their archives relating to the 1964-1965 JHS Basketball Team. These clippings really convey those times. Let's start with the schedule, kindly brought to you by McDonalds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But I think my favorite clipping is this one: Coach Cole's "Lack of a Gym" story. It really captured the grit of the team that did so well despite having that tiny auditorium floor to practice on. (Unfortunately, the article is so wide that it doesn't fit too well here so I am reprinting the text below so you can read it.)

Jupiter is the only high school in Palm Beach County without a basketball gym, but this has been a blessing in disguise in the opinion of Coach Ken Cole.

A Class B school, Jupiter currently sports a record of 12 victories and two defeats against mainly Class AA-A opposition. Its two defeats came in the Vero Beach Holiday Tournament - to Class AA McCarty by a point and to Class A Bartow by six points.

Its Class AA victims include Delray Beach Seacrest and Lake Worth of the Suncoast Conference.

Cole, in his second season as head coach of the Warriors, says, “hard work and emphasis of fundamentals” are the main reasons behind the 12-2 record and doubts that fundamentals would have been stressed so much if Jupiter had its own gym.

“We work out on the stage of the auditorium,” Cole explained Wednesday, “and we have no choice but to work on fundamentals. With that limited space we can’t scrimmage, or work on the press or the fast break. Now and then we go over to Riviera Beach for a real workout.”

Jupiter uses Riviera Beach for most of its home games.

The Warriors tallest regulars are Dan Dailey and Don Davie, both of whom stand 6-1.

“I was quite worried when the season started,” Cole said, “about whether we could get the ball off the boards. But the boys have worked real hard - working on position and working on timing. They all realized their shortcomings. They knew that if they were to win they’d have to get the ball. And you know only Seacrest has out-rebounded us and they got just two more.”

Dailey and Davie have been the “big” players off the board for the Warriors, averaging from 12 to 13 rebounds a game.

“Everyone on our team has to hit the boards,” Cole says. “We’re not that big. Our tallest boy is a reserve, Gary Goldsmith who is 6-2.”

Tom Brown (6-0) is leading the team in scoring with a 19.6 average on 275 points in 14 games. Next is 5-11 Al Zavaletta, who carries a 14.5 average.

Other starters are 6-1 Dailey with a 13.1 mark, 6-1 Davie with 9.2 and 5-9 Danny Mills with 6.0.

Cole says Brown is averaging close to 50 per cent of his field goal shots.

The Warriors make the most of their free-throw attempts.

“Brown is 76 per cent from the foul line, Dailey is 80, Davie 71 and Zavaletta 70. Dailey went 10-for-10 the other night,” the coach said.

Cole was junior varsity coach under Floyd Wilkes when the Warriors played in the Class B state tournament two years ago at Gainesville.

He would not compare his team or the 1962-1963 team that lost to Florida High of Tallahassee in the tourney opener, but believes the current team has a good chance to return to the tourney. He listed Frostproof as the toughest hurdle in the Warriors’ bid for state recognition.

Cole refuses to take full credit for the team’s success.

“I’ve got three good assistants - Jim East and Pat Seachord in junior high school and Paul Hard, our Jayvee coach. We all work together and teach the same system. By the time the boys reach me they’re all pretty well schooled in basketball fundamentals.”

But the Jupiter skipper has to keep up with those fundamentals because he hasn’t a gym big enough to do otherwise.

 


 

While going through some family memorabilia, Debbie Dahlen McKinney recently came across a newspaper clipping announcing the 1965 JHS Graduation. She was kind enough to scan it and let us display it here. We thought it was a fascinating insight into how the graduation ceremony was a community event of interest to the whole town.

 

 


New Jupiter Elementary Historic Auditorium Restoration Project

 

Grace Sardinha Grenfell was nice enough to share a letter she received announcing an organizational meeting of a steering committee for the completion of our High School Auditorium remodel. They also have set up a fund raising site for this project.

We thought it appropriate to modify the link on the left that had Dan Gladwin's report on the remodel of the rest of the school from 2009 and call the new link, JHS Remodel Project. Dan's report is still there and as we learn of progress on this project, we will add the news under the new link.

 


We are pleased to post a video of the recent parade honoring the five Jupiter High School State Championship Teams from the 2017-2018 school year. We hope you enjoy it!
