Most she knew from birth through high school. Even now, at age 57, with her own sons raised and gone, Anne Murray Bartz often recalls with pleasure her friends from the 1940s, 19508 and 1960s. They grew up together on the 1800 block of Arona Street in a brand-new section of Falcon Heights in Minneapolis. Reimion, she decided. It was time for a neighbor kid reunion. "The Great Arona Reunion," which she organized in November, was such a success that others should steal the idea, Bartz advises. Getting together with old neighbor kids can mean a great deal more than a high-school or college reimion, she found, or even as much as a family reunion. One of her brainstorms worked particularly well. She politely asked the people who now own the homes on Arona to allow her group to tour on the morning of the reunion. Most homeowners consented. They were as eager to learn about the first families that had lived there as the earlier batch was to walk through those rooms again. John and Janet Crocker, current owners of 1840 Arona, built a fire in the fireplace and served coffee and muffins. "I wanted this to be a nice experience for them," Janet Crocker said. "I think we all want to go back to the home where we were raised and have it be fun." Bartz had asked homeowners for permission to view just the first floor, but the Crockers encouraged the tour to continue upstairs. As they entered their old bedroom, Jane Mortenson Sweeney said to her older sister, "Oh, look, Mary, there's the closet where the boogeyman is!" All the "Arona kids," Bartz said, were raised in two-parent homes. None of their moms worked. Some of her generation have kept track of one another since graduating from high school, but until the reunion, never had so many been together, not even during childhood. The reunion drew 30 people — 21 of the "kids" (born between 1940 and 1949), two of their mothers and seven spouses or partners. They came from five states — from as far away as Louisiana and California. And from as close as Arona: Two of the "kids" (Joe Letourneau and Elizabeth Bull Postigo) still live in the houses in which they were raised. To Mike Gilgosch, 57, the reunion sparked a flood of mem9j ries of the house he lived in. a His maternal grandparent^ George and Betty Lee, moved to 1811 Arona in 1943. Mike's father served in the Navy during World War II, and Mike and his mom lived with the older couple until his dad came home. The family eventually i moved to St. Paul, Roseville and California. Corrie Bloedel learned a heap about her husband, Gary, when they went to the reunion. They've been married 34 years, "but you don't know what happened before you met this person," she said, "I had an idea he was a busy little boy, but I hadn't heard all the stories." "Some of us had our 40th high- school reunion, and it was OK," Gary Bloedel said. "But to get together the kids ftom this neighborhood, where I lived flrom 1944 to 1960, that was awesome."
