We couldn’t have know when we gathered in June 2019 for our 50th Class Reunion how dramatically our lives would be changed in the coming year. We also could not have comprehended the significance of rekindling friendships that began so long ago.
So – here we are – a bit more than a year after, as some states see the second wave of Covid-19 and others, as expressed by Dr. Anthony Fauci “Still knee-deep in the first wave of Covid-19.”
How are you doing? How are you coping with this new reality? Are you finding creative ways to fill your days? Have your adult children called on you to teach your grandchildren? What about charity work? Have you been instrumental in helping others in some way? Most importantly, how have you taken care of yourself?
We want to hear from you. The good, the bad, and the ugly. Whatever you’re experiencing, we’re here to listen, share, and offer suggestions if we can. Know that our rekindled friendships offer you solidarity in these turbulent waters.
We are in this together. Stay safe. Be well…

“Be True to your School” – the Beach Boys
Watching a Beach Boys cover band last week brought this almost forgotten song to mind and fond moments to remember from Dixie Hollins High School back in 1969. We were definitely true to our school! We’re still looking for memories to share from our high school days or memories from your high school days which brought you to who you are today. Were you a great parent? Top chef? Successful writer? Teacher, minister, business person? How did you contribute to others in the last fifty years? How did high school influence your thinking, actions, and goals achieved? Whether simple or grand – every achievement is worth the share! You are appreciated!
One of my favorite words is “perspective.” Why? Because it’s yieldable to the many different views we take on for the same subject over years on our journey to maturity. My perspective – armed with research, knowledge of current trends (real news trends – not fake), and the opinion of others, has opened my mind to diverse points of view that I might not have found so easy to accept when I was younger. In my morning reading, I ran across this little gem and thought you might enjoy it too. Thank you Dr. Joy Finder!
As always, if you find anything you think might benefit the group feel free to send it in. We want to hear from you! Looking forward to seeing you soon! Nancy
LIFE MOVES AT A FAST PACE It’s tempting to pursue life with such breathless haste that you risk missing all the good stuff there is to enjoy. And here’s the thing, most of the good stuff is free. It doesn’t cost you to enjoy it. So, as you journey through the years, take the time […]
