Oval Callout: Gotta minute?


Dec 1, 2018

Hi Everyone~~

Hope you made it through Thanksgiving OK without expanding your waist line. Seems to be what happens to me. Due to circumstances we had to have our family dinner on the following Sunday so we had a white Thanksgiving. It was pretty but come on. Thankfully everyone made it and we ate, played Mexican Train Dominoes and Wahoo marble game. All in all it was a great day so hope yours was as well.

We have lost some alumni in the last few months which is always a sad time. We have hopefully an Annual Newsletter coming out in March so please have your current addresses in to me so you get yours. Karen Starr the longtime secretary at the high school retired after last year and she did the printing for us all these years on the newsletter. Our new secretary has the option to do it or not so I am going to go to the school and talk to her about it. Pray she is willing and cross your fingers to boot. With as many as we send out we just couldn't afford to have them commercially printed. We don't charge dues in the Alumni Association so all of our funds come from donations and other avenues.

Not much else to talk about, hating the colder weather but what are you going to do?

Until next time--

To be announced





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, 1953, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1983, 1984,

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 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--

Sherry Bliss Cole, Class of 1964
