'59 classmate Patsy (Sherratt) Theobald reports..."We are in the beautiful State of Oregon where the average temperature along the coast is 70 degrees.  Since we are used to the heat of St, George, UT which can reach 110 in the summer, we are always cold up here and wear sweatshirts most of the time."

Now guys...these comments are NOT helping!  haha! 

'59 classmate Johnna (Gordon) Parks and mutual friend Sue (Chalk) Briggs, '64, just back from CA. Part business, part fun!!!   A snazzy bungalow on the beach made visit most enjoyable!

Received word that Curtis McClure passed May 11 in Colorado Springs, CO. Curtis was LHS class 1951. He is survived by wife Marge.  His mom was the great cook at Washington School.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those having medical problems, surgeries, treatment and with those who have lost loved ones.
