Summer is slipping away!

This time next year, we will be getting ready for our
50th Reunion!

If you are interested in getting together this fall for dinner,
please let your Reunion Committee know so we can make plans.

This has been a tough summer for our class in that we have lost 4 classmates between June 27th and July 19th.  While we had already planned to organize a get together, this has prompted us to "Git 'er done!" 

We will be meeting at Bandana's in Lebanon (where Shoney's used to be) on Saturday,  September 17th at 5:00 p.m.  Everyone will be responsible for their own meal (if you want to eat) and it will provide an opportunity for us to catch up with one another and enjoy each other's company. 

I hope you can join us for a fun evening of fellowship!



Interesting, I don't remember seeing this before, but then, I'm getting old and forgetful, I can see myself having a heart attack, and thinking what do I do? Call 911, aspirin, don't lay down, what else?  Oooops, I forgot to buy aspirin!

 Please read this!      SELF CPR

1. Let's say it's 7.25 pm and you're going home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day on the job.

2. You're really tired, upset and frustrated. 

3. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up in to your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home.

4. Unfortunately you don't know if you'll be able to make it that far. 

5. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.

Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.

7. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.

8. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.

9. Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!!
10. A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this mail kindly sends it to 10 people, you can bet that we'll save at least one life.

11. Rather than sending jokes, please ... contribute by forwarding this as an email which can save a person's life....

12. If this message comes around to you more than once, please don't get irritated - you need to be happy that you have many friends who care about you and for being reminded of how to tackle heart attacks .

Happy Valentines Day

Boy am I behind!!!  My life has been pretty hectic for the past few months and I must apologize for my tardiness in getting the website updated, the class directory done and photo CDs copied.  The photos are in the 45th Reunion Album on this website. 
I also must sadly report the loss of another member of the Class of '68.  Kathy Lawson Macal passed away on November 30, 2013.
Bear with me and know that I haven't forgotten all of you.  I will get everything caught up eventually.
Blessings to all of you,
