The LHS News continues to 'grow'. Have added several new names to list in past 2-3 weeks. I appreciate all the kind words and happy that readers enjoy! For some of you, this will be your first 'copy' of the news.
Remember, previously sent news is archived along with other features at the WolverNet blog:
Sorry to report the passing of Staff Sgt. Richard W. Cook, 58, of Lawton. He passed April 3. Richard is a 1969 grad of LHS, joining the Air Force shortly after graduation. He later graduated from Cameron. Services were April 6 in Lawton and he was buried with honors at the Ft. Sill National Cemetery at Elgin.
Well, the past couple of weeks I have had my own mini-reunion....of sorts!
I received a couple of phone calls that were fun. Fellow '59 classmate Ronnie Ellenburg called me from OR and we had a great visit. It has been years since I visited with Ronnie & he got me up to speed and checked about the upcoming '59 reunion.
And, another '59 classmate and Washington alum, blue-bird/campfire buddy, Stella (Price) Naifeh called from Dallas and I enjoyed the visit with her. Stella has been back in the states for about a year now, but she & hubby spent over 3 years in the Phillippines with the Peace Corp. Very interesting and hope we hear more about it this fall at our 50th reunion. Stella was doing great & she & Ron both said they were planning to be here in October.
Also, visiting 'home' last week, '59 classmate Beverly (Spradlin) Raley was here from Florida. Some of the '59 gals got together at Burgess. Thanks to Marcus Wilcoxson who took the picture! He was dining at the table next to us!

And a surprise visit from '59 classmate Jerry (Sasser) Childs. We celebrated her April Fool Day birthday at Bianco's! No foolin! (pix at right).
Hey, the class of '59 is movin and shakin! OK...no obvious jokes!
Bonnie Hix says a planned reception to celebrate Washington Grade School's 100th birthday has been put on 'hold'. May be next fall (or spring 2010) before any type of event!
Geneva McIntosh says looks like at least 90+ will be in attendance for the ALL LHS class reunion next Saturday (18th) out at Medicine Park.
ALL LHS classes are invited to the informal get together which kicks off about 3:00pm at the Plantation!
Food & drink are 'dutch treat'. Visiting and seeing old classmates....PRICELESS! Deadline for reservations was April 4 but if you think you might be able to get here, contact Geneva at Wgm1943@aol.com
Plans continue for the class 1959 - 50 year reunion October 2-3. The first snail mail info will be going out toward end of April/first of May!
Hope all your eggs are chocolate and all your beans ...jellied!
Happy Easter! Georgia
