I wish to let everybody know I will be in
In the recent days looking the organization of the upcoming reunion, I got to wondering how many people from the first grade that became class the graduating classes of 1960, 1961 and 1962. I would love to know since I am one of the members of Mrs. Fox (Wright) class. It would be interesting if we could all get to gather and have a group picture of the three first grade classes.
For those who are wondering, the reunion company has started to work on the flyers. You should see them sometime during July.
I want to thank Sue Ewing Schupack (’61) for all her efforts in organizing the many activities.
The reunion committee will not start a group for the activities, that is your responsibility. We only find the information for your enjoyment. A special thanks to Jim Haire (’62) and Jim Hood (’60) in finding classmates.

Doris and I have always loved animals. We have 3 border collies and a cat. If anyone knows anything about dogs,they understand that border collies need to work. We searched for a couple of years, but after trying herding, got hooked, as have the dogs. We visit a couple of farms every month or so, and herd sheep, under the tutelage of a master. We have competed and won some ribbons. So, I guess for my third career, I'll become a Shepard. When we finally retire we want to get a small farm with sheep.

This life, as we all experience,has had its ups and downs; We have had fun and have had challenges.

We are doing the best we can and I think so far we are winning.
