"The knee replacement surgery was a howling success. Out of the hospital on the 4th day and into the re-hab center. One week and one day after the surgery, I was home! Thanks for all your well wishes, prayers, cards, flowers, and food. It's great to have friends. Love to all, Tommye" (Boudreaux) Hobbs - '52
Dee (Vanderpool) Glass, '52, is having some health issues and is having tests done. May possibly have surgery. She would appreciate your prayers and support. Dee is a sweetie and I know we will all keep her in our thoughts.

Folks, this next 'item' (see below from Kelly) is from the LHS Alumni Association. A fairly new organization - started by LHS grads - that is trying hard to get off the ground. Please read the following & if you can help, would be greatly appreciated. PLUS, if you haven't, you need to see about becoming an alumni member. Only $20. a year! Hopefully, it will be a good resource in years to come. To help w/testing or to join, contact Kelly Longfellow, '95, at: firstname.lastname@example.org
From Kelly:We have testing coming up Tuesday and Wednesday - April 21 and 22 - and we need some test monitors. They wouldn't have to give the tests, just be there to monitor and possibly hand out papers, etc. It would be from 9:00am - 10:40am. We are asking some of the PTSA members but thought might be a perfect way to incorporate some of the alumni also.
btw...the Lady Sooners are rolling on.
OK Doyce, I'm lots younger than '56, but I hope to see you on 18th!!! Georgia
