Oval Callout: Gotta minute?


November 2, 2018

Hi Everyone~~

My group trip to Vegas has come and gone. There were 6 of us this year and altho we didn't come home rich we did have a good time. Guess that is the main thing, right?

Hope your Halloween was safe and fun. I so enjoyed seeing all the costumes on facebook. We had our usual 1 trick or treater this year. The Grandkids are all grown and do their own thing and no kids in the neighborhood to speak of, we live on Hendricks which is a busy street and no sidewalks so kind of limited. Our one boy was a nephew of the neighbors so glad to have him. He gets something special of course. haha.

Our alumni meeting we had was a good one with many things discussed. We for a change ate afterward at Dutch Kitchens and was it ever good. Think everyone went home satisfied. Our new secretary Tammy Kizzar unfortunately for us but happy for her was attending her daughters wedding and could not attend her first meeting. Looking forward to seeing her at the next one which will be when we put the March newsletter together. Yes, it is time to think about that again. Let me know if you have a different home address from last March so I can update our files. .

Until next time--

Hi Everyone~~

Sorry I am a little late in updating this News and Notes page. I just got back from a 9 day trip to Biloxi, New Orleans area Sunday. Went with my friend Iris via the Elmdale Senior Center trip. Was alot of fun and the bus was not full so we got to spread out and you know what I liked best about the bus? Every two to two and a half hours they took a restroom break. Anyone that knows me knows that was a definite plus. Nice group of folks that went with us and the weather gave us a break going and coming home. Missed hurricane Michael, missed the tornados in Texas coming home and arrived home before the snow Sunday night. Altho we did encounter rain going and coming. All in all it was good and the bus driver was fantastic. Didn't kick any of us off the bus. LOL

Not too much other Chase news that I am aware of other than what I posted out of the Lyons News. We have our alumni meeting this Saturday so will see what the group brings to the table.

Hope you are liking the weather we are getting or just tolerating it like me. Never know what to wear anymore-------

Until next time--

Sherry Bliss Cole, Class of 1964
