......LHS News......
Originally sent November 26-27

Guys.....I've been having 'issues' with my email. So, in future, you might receive news from different address ie: gvinenews, possibly another, BUT, will have LHS News as header. Just wanted to give all a heads-up.

Calling Class 1940. Don Ginter is looking for '40's grads or those who may have attended LHS in 1940 with hopes of having a reunion. Any 40's grads or if you have info on a 40's grad, contact Don at (580) 353-8998 or write to him at: 713 NW Dearborn, Lawton, OK 73507.

Judy Lee (Taylor) Jenkins is asking about a class 1955 reunion? She also adds....."In the Sierra Foothills we have had a great couple of Fall days. The East Coast has nothing on us when it comes to leaf foliage. Everyone on the way to Tahoe can enjoy the view. Had a little snow last week and more to come but right now it's beautiful. Of course, we have a new 'Red Hawk Casino' that is drawing a crowd also. Thanks for the updates, I enjoy reading about people I knew "when"! "

Mary Ann (Goode) Pursley who lives at Frisco Lakes in north Dallas writes...." I was in charge of the Halloween Boo Rally (Golf Cart Parade) and the Halloween Dinner/Dance. I have attached a picture of me and my Committee (I am the yellow M&M). Lots of fun here." (see photo).

Celebrating November birthdays in Las Vegas, 1956 classmates Kay (Kimball) Scott, Myrna Kay (Langley) Daley, and Yvonne (Anderson) Coombs. Photo courtesy of Kay who added...."Two of us will be 75 by the end of the month (I'm one of them) & "the baby" will just be 74. Wonderful trip with fun friends!"

 I had a nice land line visit with Washington School alum and '59 classmate, DL 'Dwight' Stoddard. Dwight is retired and living the good life in Glencoe, OK.

For those among us having withdrawals from lack of wonderful, heavy-with-garlic, Bianco's salad dressing....a Christmas wish come true! Visit: Believe it is one of the grand daughters!


Was told that Charley Fatum is having some troubles walking and other issues.

Also, Chad Bledsoe is experiencing some serious health issues. Chad and his wife Diane moved to East coast to be close to kids a while ago.

Jerry Pursley is currently 4 weeks into treatment for cancer and would love to hear from classmates via email:
OR write to him at Jerry Pursley, l0232 Marigold Ln., Waco, TX 76708 OR he likes text messages on his cell phone: (254) 722-5055.

 My bro George Gill, '63, had a..well..kinda 'emergency' back surgery on Nov. 17. Piece of bone broken off and floating around his spinal column causing much pain and grief. Surgery in Tulsa (where youngest son is a PA) went well, he's re-cooping and doing much better!

Visited briefly with Jerry Boucher. He has been hospitalized with a staff infection, but out and doing better.

Also, saw Fray Palmer out and about after heart attack and treatment previously reported.
I know all these with health issues would appreciate your prayers.
