......LHS News......
Originally sent October 13

Short news, but wanted to get thing or two out. Lots more news on file....soon!

Wanda (Smith) Sunderland asked if anyone was heading up efforts for the LHS class '55 for donation of a chair in the renovated Old High School? She said she would be happy to do so or at least help. You can contact Wanda at:

Recent opportunity to visit with longtime friend and class mate Babs (Yarmuk) Givens. Joining in, Suzanne (Jones) Crawford, Marilyn (Lewis) Smith, Johnna (Gordon) Parks - some of the girls of '59. I know not everyone is into these golden friendships and 'reunions' but I have to say.....I just love 'em! And, you don't know what you are missing! Golden, oldie friends are most cherished! Had a great visit and lots of laughter!

Marilyn and hubby Richard were leaving the next morning for Santa Fe....a vacation and a celebration of Marilyns birthday!

Also, festive birthday wishes this month to Suzanne (Jones); another longtime friend - Tom Dillon, '63 an LHS'er down Dallas way; my sister Princess - LHS class '76; Wayne Parks, '60; Jim Powers, 55; and my mom Lucille Gill who turns 90 on October 14. Wow! Many happy returns to all!
