I know our sympathies are with these who have lost loved ones.
From the eMail bag:.....
" I forgot to send this earlier. Today (June 12, 2010) is the 49th Wedding Anniversary for Milly and me. We have been retired 5 years now after 40 years active service as Officers/Ministers in The Salvation Army. As a result of our union, we have 5 children (3 are also Salvation Army Officers), 17 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. We are retired in Georgia (Snellville, near Stone Mountain). God has been good! He has blessed us! Thanks for your faithful work on the LHS News. God bless you and yours!"
Glenn Fite, '59
Had occasion for a brief visit Monday with '59 classmate Sharron (Cummings) Bolt at fav local burger bar (Burgess). Sharon and hubby Joe are moving to Amarillo to be near daughter and grandkids.
And the grapevine has it that '53 grad Chad Bledsoe and wife Diane will be moving east to Carolinas to be near their kids and grandkids.
'We' understand these moves but hate to lose our classmates to other locales. Good luck to all.
Work continues on gathering first hand information (oral histories from older grads) about the Old High School which will be preserved and shared in the new archive/museum in the old restored LHS building. Peggy (Elledge) Long - one of the last to graduate (1954) from the old building - is helping with recording those oral histories from graduates. Jim Whitely, of the Museum of the Great Plains is also helping with the project. Recently, Peggy interviewed grads Clarence Aubrey and his wife Betty (Phillips). (pix above). If you have any info you feel could be of value to this project.... you can contact Peggy at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call: (580) 248-4680; Jim Whitely at: (580) 581-3460. Story in Sunday Constitution, June 13.
I don't mean to brag or make anybody jealous, but........I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.....Georgia
