And here is Daphne on October 16, 2003 at her Junior ROTC promotion to Lance Corporal.

R.I.P. 2002
Per Mindy 2001, Daisy "weighs about 110 pounds and stands about 5' 4'" when standing on her hind legs. She's very gentle, but thinks she's a lap dog.  When she runs toward people , people move quicker. Wonder WHY????" ... Teddie was adopted in 2001.

1/08/02 Update:  "We still have Daisy, our tiny little puppy, but we no longer have the Guniea pigs.  They died.  We also had Teddie put to sleep for medical reasons, however, we now have a new cat named Billie.  We had a friend that thought it would be cool to have Bill and Ted so they could have excellent adventures, but, alas, Ted had problems.  We also have had a green Tree Frog named Kermit for about 1 1/2 yrs now."

11/25/03 Update:  The Hinnershitzes adopted a 5-month old grey kitten named Joey!

Post H.S.
Education & Achievements:
Graduate of the Empire Beauty School
Occupation &
Where I Work:
As of 1/28/08, Mindy began working as a teacher at Empire Beauty School.  Mindy said that she loves teaching, "It's a challenge like no other."

Prior to teaching at Empire Beauty School...

Mindy was teaching Cosmetology until she began managing the Cost Cutters salon located just inside the front door of the Wal-Mart in Wyomissing, PA.  Then, in May of 2002, Mindy left Cost Cutters and began working at Fantastic Sam's which is near the Target in Wyomissing ... Coincidentally, Mindy's boss at Fantastic Sam's was a former co-worker of mine at GPU, Stephanie Warmkessel.  Mindy also frequently cut the hair of Patty Brann, the former secretary of my department at GPU; as well as Steve Monroe's sister, Peggy, who graduated from MPHS in '89. 
And she worked with a girl who married fellow MPHS graduate, Brian Snyder (brother of Barry Snyder, Class of '88).

Mindy's husband
Mike works for Stroehmann Bakeries.
High School
Career Goal:
In the senior yearbook, Mindy listed "Child Development" as her future career path.
Senior Memories (Copied directly from the Senior Yearbook):
Special thanks to my Mom and Dad, my family and Mike for all the love and encouragement ... Remember P. W. Herman ... Lori's cows ... What's an Egg McMuffin smell like? ... Good luck Bev, Lori, Susan ... Thanks!
Chris Mal Notes:
Mindy is a fan and friend of the band "Gravity Tuned."  Her favorite band, though, is Crystal Roxx.  She goes to see Crystal Roxx and Oklahoma Dan on weekends when she's not busy.  In fact, you can find pictures of Mindy on the Oklahoma Dan website.

Mindy told me on 3/19/03 that she got to see former MPHS graduate Tom Sload sing a Jimmy Eat World song.  "He not only played basketball well, but he has a great voice too!"  Tom sings in the band Burnt Sienna.

Mindy was the Girls' bowling team MVP our senior year.  She and I and dominated the world of bowling in 1986.

Mindy attended Empire Beauty School at the same time as former classmate Lori (Stoss) Weimer.

Mindy became an Aunt again.  Her cousin Jodi (MPHS '98) had a baby in October 2002.

Mindy got ripped off on the yearbook bowling pictures.  She didn't know about the pictures being taken before a match in 1986, and didn't get there in time to get her picture taken.  In the 1984 yearbook, she's in the team picture but her name isn't mentioned in the caption!  Jeesh!  No respect for the team's best bowler!

Mindy ran into Alan Ganas in May 2004 at the Riveredge.  My Pal Al still tends bar there.  She said that he is doing well, is married and has a 6-year old.
