Hi Everyone~~

Sorry my Happy New Year is late to you, no excuses except dealing with some family losses in the last month or so. Sadly I know a lot of you are going through the same sad times. But here we go into a brand New year of 2022 and pray things start looking up.

We still have some yearbooks and extending the offer of your choice, any amount for free. But If I have to ship it to you then we would have to ask you pay shipping costs. if you live in or near Hutchinson you can pick them up at my house or if you live in Chase or Lyons I can deliver to you or leave them at the high school or Kats Korner for you. If you live in Ellinwood, Great Bend area I am sure I could get my Sister Paula Bieberle to have a pick up at her house. Haven't asked her yet lol but will.

I hope you checked out the you tube link for the 2021 All School Reunion photos. It is on the index page, I think the photos turned out pretty good and loved seeing everyone that could make it.

Your alumni committee did meet on Dec 11th but haven't come up with a date yet for the 2022 All School Reunion. We are working with the school to hopefully coincide the date we want with them booking Homecoming for 2022 so stay tuned for that news. Soon as we find out I will post it on the website. We discussed whether we want to keep the banquet part at the American Legion and use the Fairfield Hotel for our host hotel again and decided to do the wait and see until we meet again in March. We discussed the March Newsletter and with the rising costs of stamps and the amount of Newsletters we get back because someone moved and didn't let us know we might try sending the Newsletters by mail to Classes 1945-2000 and email the classes from 2001-2021. If you want one and you fall in either category please send your current address or email address to me. If you want a snail mail one and you fall into the second category plz let me know and I will add you to the list. And of course after it goes out in the mail we will have copies around Chase such as the Kats Korner, Bank, City office for you to pick up and it will be posted on the website. This will be a trial and error kind of thing to see how it turns out. In the past we have mailed out around 1100 Newsletters and on the average get 100 + back.

Wishing your family a Happy New Year from our house to yours!!

Until next time--

Thank you to Shelley White, secretary of the High School for the donation of 6 yearbooks we were in need of for the cabinet in the High School. Four more and I think we will have every yearbook from the year 1941 down that there was a yearbook. We even have 1925 year.

Thank you for the donation of the 1971 yearbook!

We would like to thank Gerald Fiedler and Kay Kopfman Thrall for donating yearbooks at the 2017 All School Reunion. We would like to thank Betty Browning Fulton, Class of  1944 for donating a 1941 yearbook to the alumni.

We thank Rhonda Clayton David for donating her yearbooks to the Association. The ones that were needed will be put in the cabinet at the High School for all to enjoy.

 Thank you, Betty Browning Fulton - 1944 for letting us know there were no yearbooks in the years 1942, 1943 & 1944 due to the war.

We are in need of some yearbooks to fill in some empty spaces in our cabinets at the school. These are on display for all to see so if you have an extra one or just want to donate yours to the Alumni we would be grateful. If you want to donate any of the following years, contact Sherry Cole.

1945, 1946, 1951,
1987.

Just a note to that, if you have any of your yearbooks of any year, please don't throw them away, we take them as well. We also have yearbooks on hand to sell if you are needing one. The list of what we have is on the  Kats Kraft Shoppe page. Thank you.

Hi Everyone~~

My heart is so heavy today having to post so many obituaries for our former school mates. Can't hardly get in the Christmas spirit with losses like this. Prayers to all the families that have to face Christmas this year without them. 

I hope you checked out the you tube link for the 2021 All School Reunion photos. It is on the index page, I think the photos turned out pretty good and loved seeing everyone that could make it.

Your alumni committee meets this Saturday Dec 11 and we will decide on a date for the 2024 All School Reunion, stay tuned~~~~~

.
Going to say Merry Christmas and offer any of the yearbooks that we have on hand free to you. If I have to mail it to you,  I do ask for $10.00 postage but you can also pick it up here at my house in Hutchinson or I can drop it off at Kats Korner in Chase if you are close to there. Here is a list of the inventory I have. First come, first get the books.
