Just want to let you know that there is some chatter on Facebook about organizing a 50th. Started by Bob Bohls, Roger Warnock, Sylvia Saldana and a few others have commented that they would be interested in helping out. Perhaps this means that something will be organized.
Kim Bradshaw ************************************************************************ I’ve created a facebook group linking to the class web site.
My thinking is that it may be a good tool for organizing and encouraging more posts and updates.
I sent an invite to join the group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1914338395471607/.
How does everyone feel about an initial informal get together to start planning sometime this September for our 50th next year? Many of you have offered to help make this happen. During our initial meeting, we can discuss who does what and what needs to be done. Among the issues that we might consider are:
• Where to hold the main event
• A possible Friday event
• A possible Sunday event
o A plan to find classmates
o Get email addresses or Facebook info and phone numbers for classmates
o Update those that have passed away
Please, reply by September 5th.
Note: Let us know if you have an idea for a place to meet. I'm assuming a public place with a reasonably private room.
Select all that apply (You can add options to the list below.):
I plan to attend
I want to help but I cannot attend

"The source of the word 'humorist' is one who regards human beings in terms of their humors — you know, whether they're sanguine or full of yellow bile, or whatever the four classical humors are. You stand back from people and regard them as types. And one finds, especially by the time one reaches one's fifties, that there are a limited number of types of people in the world, and you went to high school with every single one of them. You can visit the Eskimos, you can visit the Bushmen in the...
“It is nearly time for you to be off. This is not time to concern ourselves with nostalgia. As a matter of fact, I don’t believe that anybody has ever claimed that [our school] is a warm nest. But I hope, and I expect, that when you find yourselves involved in skirmishes on the frontiers of barbarism, which are not very far away, you’ll strike some shrewd blows in favor of civilization. Some day you’ll come back and show us your trophies and your scars, and we’ll be glad to see you.”
