Our sympathies are with those who have lost loved ones.

The class of '58 - 50th reunion was great! Bill and I were among several from 'other' LHS classes who 'visited' and we weren't alone in having a fun time reminiscing with friends and classmates.
I will have a scrapbook on the blog soon with pictures I took Friday night at Medicine Park and Saturday night at Best Western. Any of you who also took pictures...if you want to email them to me, I will be happy to include them in the blog album.

I am also still working on pictures from the classes '52-'54 reunion as well as a few miscellaneous! Lots of pictures!

I know there will be a DVD of the reunion. If you have interest in that, I believe they are $25. and you can get hold of Kenneth Easton or Loretta Hartline.

The only mishap that I am aware of was Doyle McCune...bless him, he fell as he was leaving Friday night and cracked a bone in his fore arm and had a few scrapes and bruises. But, Doyle is tough, he had his arm wrapped and in a sling, and he was front and center Saturday night!

I was sorely disappointed that Doyce Grayson was NOT in attendance! You know, Doyce, class '56, attends reunions "five years, either way". He was noticeably absent. Better have a good reason Doyce!!!!

Otto Martinez attended in honor of his sister Margie Martinez who was a member of the class of '58 but sadly passed away many years ago.

I want to thank Kathy (McCoy) Worley, class '58, for the picture of Doe Doe Park that is posted on the blog. Visited with Kathy out at Medicine Park on Friday night....she was doing great and so good to see her. She and hubby Dean live in Texas.

I was surprised at how many said they received and enjoyed the LHS News. Some said they "loved it".!! Thank U!
I appreciate all the kind words! Great to put faces with some I had previously only had email contact with.....really enjoyed meeting YOU and so happy the news continues to be fun and informative for everyone!

Raining and wonderful (almost fall like) in the home town.......Georgia
