"Every place was booked," said Denfeld economics teacher and alumni association member Joe Vukelich of the venues that might be able to accommodate an all-class reunion. "The (Denfeld) roof was being fixed, Grand Avenue was being torn up; it seemed like someone was trying to tell us something."
Vukelich said the alumni association is planning a reunion for 2009, 100 years after the first class graduated. The last Denfeld all-class reunion, organized for 1976, was supposedly the largest high school reunion on record, said Vukelich, who graduated from Denfeld in 1977.
If other alumni are as passionate about the school as Vukelich, the next reunion will not be a small gathering. The school's decor last week was a testament to the pride that still runs rampant through the dark halls of Denfeld.
"We're very fortunate we have that environment," Vukelich said.

Joe Vukelich, a Denfeld economics and government teacher, said the school building, which opened Sept. 8, 1926, has many secrets waiting to be discovered. Much of the school's architecture has a deeper meaning that was not made clear when it was built, and secrets are being unlocked all the time, he said.
Old news articles indicate that Denfeld has another time capsule located near 44th Avenue West and Sixth Street. Students can learn much from the discovery of objects such as Eugene's message, he said.
"Most Denfeld students and alumni realize they are part of something larger than themselves," Vukelich said.

"This is going to be a huge deal; it's been a couple years in the making," said Joe Vukelich of the Denfeld Alumni Association. "We've got some of the big guns coming back for this."
This is only the fourth time the school has added graduates to the Hall of Fame. The first group was inducted in 1966, the second in 1970 and the third in 1996. Vukelich said he hopes this year's event will go well enough to turn the induction ceremony into an annual tradition.
"If we do this right, it will be like the Academy Awards. ... If we screw it up, people will say: 'I'd rather go fishing,' " he said.
This year's inductees will be joined by most of the past 29 inductees and their families, Vukelich said. About 1,000 people are expected to attend, including the Denfeld and Hunting families and several local political figures. Mini-biographies will be read of all the honorees and each will be presented with a plaque.
The 10 honorees from the 20th century will be escorted to their seats at the Denfeld Auditorium by students of the 21st century - including this year's graduates - as a way to "pass the torch," Vukelich said.
