Comments: TO ALL CURUNDU ZONIANS: As you well know, we are a special goup of people...not only are we zonians/zonies, whatever we call ourselves these days, but even more so we are from CURUNDU and proud to have lived there and been a part of that community. Because of the closeness we experienced while growing up in Curundu and the bond we continue to have at our yearly reunion in Florida; especially when we come together for our annual Curundu picture...definitely says it all!!! Therefore, we want to extend an invitation to all Curundu/Curundu Heights Zonians to join us next year for a Curundu Reunion. Lets see how many Curundu maliantes we can get under one roof. As some of us already know, the reunion has been moved back to Orlando, Fl. and next year it will be held in the month of August. For those of you reading this message and know the whereabouts of our Curundu people please pass the word. We want to hear from you. Please send me your e-mail address so we can further update you on our plans. We have a year to plan this and need your input. Curundu parties together therefore it is important that we all come together with ideas. Like my good friend Rick Cruz-Segara said when he e-mailed me this morning a Curundu paranda during the reunion will be great to have...compadres y comadres I agree with him. Send me your response at awhit127@aol.com

Little sleep, lots of talking, dancing, drinking and remembering. There weren't very many reps from the Class of 72/CHS, but since our 30th is coming up in 2002 I know our numbers will grow.

Comments: Actually, my daughter Vikki (COALE) Parson from Juneau, AK, a graduate of Balboa High School, Canal Zone College and FSU put me on to this site. And a great site it is too. My family and I lived in Panama/Canal Zone for neary 30 years from Jan 1971 to Oct 1999. We lived in Coco Solo (1971-72), Gatun (1972-74), Los Rios (1976-83), Altos del Chase (1983-89), Curundu (1989-92), El Valle (1992-99). We were always an adventurous family. I started it by moving from the rat race East Coast to Las Vegas in 1967. We moved from the desert in 1971 to the jungle (Panama Canal Zone) and back to the desert (Lake Havasu) in 1999. In the meantime my daughter, Vikki moved to AZ and on to Juneau, AK where she now resides and my son, Ronnie and family moved to China and my oldest daughter, Linda, the more sedate one lives outside of Philadelphia, PA. My wife and I moved out of El Valle, Panama in 1999 after 8 years there because of poor roads, mudslides, electric blackouts, telephone outages, and Panama Govt bureaucratic snafus. We miss Panama and your site brings back the more pleasant memories of friends and environment. Thank You ROD COALE

My heart is forever in Gamboa and I told my children, you haven't lived, until you've lived in Gamboa. Thank you, thank you so much for the wonderful memories. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to show my children a part of my childhood; that part that you can tell them in words, but the pictures are worth a million dollars. They can see with their own eyes and at least appreciate the beauty of my former town. I live in Seattle and you couldn't get farther from Panama. Thank you!
