So....how was the class 1962 - 50th reunion held this past week-end?
I had opportunity to visit with James Bassel - 'Jim' to his friends. Jim was here for the '62 reunion and said so far, it was GREAT! Jim lives in CA and was also able to visit with his sister, '59 classmate Sally (Bassel) Wiseman while here. They were both dining on Burgess burgers Saturday. Jim is retired from the US Forest Service.
Ron Jones, '55, is recently back from an extended trip to Israel and the Holy Land. He says it is fantastic and is a 'must do trip/pilgrimage'.
'55 classmate Paul Massad has been busy around Norman. Paul recently was seen at luncheon honoring the new dean at OU's College of Education dept. (see photo - Paul on left).
Lawton is happy to welcome home '59 classmate Patsy 'Pat' (Sheppard) Holcomb. After several decades of living 'away', Pat is moving back this month. Packers and movers already hard at work and Pat will be settling in around 10th of June.
Sing Happy Anniversary to '58 classmate Ellen (Ewing) and hubby Ken Jahnke who celebrated their Golden 50th this past Sunday. A reception hosted by family and friends was held at the Kemp Center in Wichita Falls. Ellens brother Leigh Ewing, class '56, was also there to celebrate! Major congrats you two!!!!
