Message: Received word that my buddy and your buddy Henry Cooper is fighting a rare aggressive form of Hodgkins Lymphoma. Henry is on his first set of treatment and will go home Tuesday returning in a couple weeks for a second and perhaps more treatment. So all you prayer warriors out there I would appreciate prayers for Henry and Cathy and a miracle to happen. As a recipient of such a miracle, I know they are still available! Thank you in advance, we love you Henry!

Message: Yahoo! Got a check from Curt Satter. Now if you're still sitting on the fence about coming to the reunion, you need to hop off and send in your reservation/check! CT birthday list says that today is Curt Thompson's birthday today. Happy Birthday, Curt! Hope you can come in August. Friday, Judi and Mike Storie and I met with our event director at the Marriott. We decided no "rubber chicken". We will be having Pasta Primavera + salad and a fruit tart dessert. Doors will open at 6:00 pm for check-in and cocktails. Dinner will be served at 7:30. This venue is so beautiful! If you are staying at the Marriott, you are so lucky. I could sit in the lobby all day and just relax. We will need to turn in our final number of attendees on August 15th. So, PLEASE, get your money in now. See you in August.

Message: Hey, Janet girl, Wow!, I think personally you are a little bit wrong about older folks. I think back in my growing up years, older folks were a wealth of knowledge & information. I remember my Grandfather on my dad's side teaching me wood working skills and minor electrical skills i.e. knowing the difference btw. the red, white, black & green wires and putting in wall recepticles without getting knocked on my keester (shocked) LOL. My Gradfather on my mom's side was from a farming background and taught me how to care for animals & how to garden, yeah, I said garden LOL. Now I considder myself a "jack of all trades, a master of none", what I learned as a kid has really helped in adult life and saved me a lot of money over the years to boot. I am going to John Nix's moms 100 birthday party in a few days and this lady is still as sharp as a tack, her mind is crisp, she still remembers thing we as kids did back in the H/S days that I don't even remember, love listening to her. So, there is a lot to be learned from old folks, I don't care how old they are. To bad that most kids today don't even know who their Grandparents are, if they did maybe they wouldn't be the lost generation and the world would be a better place. I just had to give a shout out to old people, beings I'm one of them. Jorge

Message: Reading Jill and Tom's ('77) posts brought home what we on the 66/67 reunion committee are experiencing also. You're very brave Jill to do this again. Right now we have about 60 people coming to ours. The room capacity is 150. I think we will easily have 100 because lots of people have told us they plan to come but have not yet sent in their money. Here's the thing -- after we meet our $5,000 minimum, we would like to make plans for a band and/or DJ, gift baskets for door prizes, decorations and more, BUT as John said until the money is in, we cannot make any deposits or purchase anything. If you are planning on coming, please send your money/reservation as soon as possible. CT Reunions page
has all the specifics. Roberta Dittman, '67 is coming, Ginny Lutz, '66 sent in a check and Sandy Imbrielle sent in her check and is coming from Las Vegas. I'm telling you there will be someone there that you would really like to see. So talk it up to your friends and get back to us soon. Your reunion committee - Paul Clark, Judi and Mike Storie, Pat Morrow, Linda Padilla, Marsha Stoops and myself.

Message: Attention class of 77! We're coming close to the reunion! I'm getting concerned about the turn out. Michelle Hall has been working diligently on contacting our class. A lot of people on the fence. The bottom line is that we need a minimum of $4000 at our venue, we are way, way below that. Guess who will be on the hook for the difference? I've worked hard on keeping the cost reasonable. If you need information on the reunion, please go the the reunions page on Cougartown, or contact me by email. Thank you!
