......LHS News......

Originally sent September 27

'Our' old stomping grounds goes NATIONAL - WAYNE'S makes top 10!! Waynes Drive Inn is named on the Huffington Post as one of the top 10 classic drive-inn restaurants. Chuck Abshere said he wasn't even aware of it until several came in and said they had seen Wayne's on the Post.
The list - released on September 6 - was written by Arthur Bovino of The Daily Meal and included drive-inn restaurants from eight different states. Bovino was most impressed with the wide selection and colorful names of some of the meals - especially the 'sissyburger'.
I rarely concur with anything on the liberal Post, but will have to agree with this..! Article in Sunday Constitution -September 25, Business section 1-B. Hope you can pull it up at:
Photo shows left: Joe, son of Chuck, and right: Chuck Abshere whose dad Wayne started the drive-inn back in 1950.

hummmmmm....look like writer Arthur Bovino's last name might be a clue to his 'burger' cravings!

NOTE: Once again, last minute notice that Washington School is going to have some kind of 'observance' this next Friday, September 30, at 2:00pm, marking the 100th Anniversary of the school. I was told that for some reason the principal - David DeHaven - is keeping this pretty much 'under wraps'?? So, I would suggest if you want more information you can call the Board of Ed - (580) 357-6900 or call Washington School - (580) 353-6299. I know it has been a struggle to get some kind of recognition for Washington Schools 100th year. Last years 'celebration' was abruptly cancelled at the very last minute. As a Washington alumn, I am disappointed this has been so badly handled.

btw...I was also told it was on the LPS web site but that it "was hidden" and hard to find it. They were right, I couldn't find it. The LPS web site has been revamped and maybe it's just me, but I think it's difficult to navigate. Here is Washington School site off the LPS site, good luck.

It's major congratulations for Neal and Dorothy (Stinnett) Goode who recently celebrated their 60th anniversary. Neal was 1944 grad of St. Marys but Dorothy graduated LHS in 1947 and taught in the LHS business department from 1951 - 1956.

The combo class reunion this past week-end ~ classes '49-'52 ~ had a full house on Saturday night, from far and near! Congrats to those who put it together, very nicely done and all seemingly had a great time! More, along with pictures soon!


'59 classmate Tommy Hix is recovering very nicely from open heart surgery this summer.

Sorry to hear of the passing of Lodell B. Goochey Tate, 99, of Lawton. Lodell passed on September 18 and services were September 22 in Lawton. Lodell is mom of '55 classmate Jerry Goochey and also Beverly (Goochey) Thomas, class '51 - Beverly is deceased.
