Pease accept my sincere thanks and appreciation for all who volunteered their time and skill to make our 50th reunion such a wonderful experience. Your efforts did not go unnoticed. What a blessing it was!

Thank you to all who were a part of the wonderful reunion celebration this past weekend.  It was wonderful seeing old, well not that old, friends.  Let's do this again.

I readily concur with Tammy and Tom.  It was a great event and lots of fun seeing everyone.  I really appreciate all the effort put in by the Reunion Committee to make it happen.

To everyone, Lynn, Cheryl, Trey, Debbie, who contributed to making our reunion so wonderful, I say thank you! I had such high anticipation, and was uplifted by the numerous bright eyes and smiles I was met with. Even though we had all changed, in one way or another, over the years, physically, our careers, where we lived, political viewpoints, children or not, I still connected to the children we were at 16, 17 and 18 years old. Kind and trusting, optimistic and full of dreams, and plans to conquer the world, and become so many things. Then life after graduation happened,  and here we are 50 years later. I just wanted to say how priveledged I feel to have known so many of you, from grade school, on up to THS, and how much your friendships have met to me, and made me the person I am today. And a special thanks to Lynn, for letting me tour the house I grew up in.

At the recent reunion some of us were discussing the fact that our Class of '73 has not made any kind of donation to the school.  As I was on the tour it occured to me that there was no plaque or any kind of description on the 'USS Constitution' flagpole.  Is that something that there's interest in fixing?

There is also the opportunity to refurbish a table in the cafeteria, or a seat in the auditorium as well.

A plaque on the flagpole would be a good idea. I observed the same thing.  I'm in.

I like the idea of the plaque on the flagpole Tom!  Would you be able to check into that for us and find out the cost so we can get the ball rolling?  It was great seeing everyone again!  Just love how we pick up right where we left off!!  Thanks to the nametags with made "picking up" easier for some of us! ;)

I was struck by how lucky we were to have had some great teachers.  Would anyone be interested if I could identify a project that would benefit the current teaching staff in addition to the other projects that have been suggested?  My guess is that we all now appreciate how hard it is to be a good instructor.  If we could find something that would assist them, it could be a nice way to honor those who gave us so much.  

If there is interests, I will contact the school to see what if any options we have.

Great ideas Tom and Mark.  Hopefully the Class of '73 can do both projects.  

Thanks again to the reunion committee for the great job.  It was so much fun, wish we could do a repeat.
