......LHS News......
Originally sent March 12

After I posted on the blog Feb. 20, someone left a comment. I am not sure who left the comment and I have no email address. Please email me at the above email so I can answer your question. Thanks.

In mentioning the passing of Lawrence Ray Williams, I made a typo. Lawrence was LHS class '96, not '66.

Again, we have lost several classmates.
Karl Hanza, 82, of Hobart, passed on March 5. Karl was an LHS grad but I do not know the year. Services were held on March 8. Survivors include 3 daughters; numerous grand and great-grand children and a brother Rudy Hanza of Lawton.

Also, Elaine Minnie (Reynolds) Smith, 68, of Lawton/Altus. Elaine passed on March 8. She is class '59. She is survived by 3 daughters; 2 sons; 2 sisters. A memorial service was held March 9.

From the eMail bag:
An email from Alice (Dezelle) Maksim, '53, asking about classmates:....
" a couple of names of Army brats I have searched for. Perhaps your readers will have info on Judy Granrud and Lucille Cowles. Also Jane Herskowitz (father owned Parisian when it was on Gore Blvd in the 50's)."
Alice sent some other interesting 'news' that I will share soon.

Jimmy Reynolds, '53, has had some health issues lately and has moved back to Lawton from Frederick. If you would like to say 'hi' or send a card/note, Jimmy is now at 3610 SE Huntington - #209, Lawton, OK 73501.

"Just found you on the internet. This is Sarah Olsen Vaughn, class of 56. I wouldn't be able to attend the all class reunion this time, hopefully next time. Will watch for news of a 1956 reunion. My sister, Benna Olsen Morford, Class of 53, lives in Lawton. I know she is in touch with several ofher classmates. I don't know what to think of the old school building. I am really glad they are not tearing it down.Started 9th grade there and moved to the new school on Ft. Sill blvd my jr. year. The new one was OK, but really loved the old one. I am in touch with Susan Hankins Ellington and Barbara Odom Smith both1956 grads. Would love to hear from any of my classmates who care to write. I live in Del City, a suburb of Okla. City."

TODAY - March 12 - is the deadline for reservation for the 2nd Annual ALL class reunion. ALL LHS grads invited, regardless of year! Please make reservations asap and send your money!!! Details and who to contact right here on the blog - see right hand side.

Emails recently from John Waller; Barbara (Smith) Richards.
