APRIL 9, 2018 – The monthly luncheon was held today with the snow showers coming down around us.  Enough is enough, bring on spring.  A small group of 14, but there is never a dull moment.

The charity fund has now grown to $770.00, thanks to the generosity of the classmates.

I am saddened to announce we had two classmates pass away this month.  Nancy Knowlden Gregg passed away on March 21, 2018 at her residence.  She is survived by her son, Eric (Kelly) Gregg, and daughter, Sherri (Chuck) Hand; two grandchildren: Amanda Taylor and Neil (Brittany) Taylor, and two step brothers: Eldean Knowlden and Bernard Knowlden.  Our prayers and condolences to her family and friends.

Virginia Reid Stockdale passed away on April 7, 2018 at her home. She is survived by two sons, Michael (Vicki) Stead of Hudson, South Dakota and Robert (Michele) Stockdale, II of St. Augustine, Florida; three daughters, Cheryl (Dave) Henderson of Trinway, Ohio, Karen Nolan of Thornville, Ohio and Carolyn (Steve) Dorr of Nashport, Ohio; Ten grandchildren and five great grandchildren.  Also surviving is one borther Gordon J. Reid, Jr. of Sugarland, Texas, one sister Lana Staley of Cincinnati, Ohio and several nieces and nephews. Our prayers and condolences to her family and friends.

Alice Dodson Blake is recovering from surgery and we ask you to keep her in your prayers.

The reunion reservations are coming in and if you haven’t sent in yours, please consider it soon.  It should prove to be a good time.

Eleanor Whitehouse gave the benediction and the chatter began.  I have to tell you I laughed so much listening to the stories.  At this age a good laugh is good and if you haven’t attended the luncheons, give us a try.

Looking forward to May and warm weather and pray you all have a good month.

MARCH 12, 2018 – The monthly luncheon was held today with the sun shining but temperature still in the 40s. Seventeen classmates and friends joined together with a fun time catching up from our last get together.

The reservations are coming in for our summer reunion to be held on July 28th with the Remember Then Band to perform.  Get your reservations in early.  If you have any questions give me a call.

The charity fund is growing and as of today,  the amount is  $742.00. All I can say is “What a class”.

Shirley Bennett gave the benediction and the fellowship began.

I don’t have any more news so I will close for now, wishing everyone a good St. Patrick’s Day and a blessed Easter.  God bless each of you during the very special season.

FEBRUARY 12, 2018 –      The monthly luncheon was held today with much better weather.  The temperature was around 39 degrees but the sun was shining brightly.  This made the day better and lifted the spirits a lot more than 5 degrees and ice, so we are blessed today.  The turnout was low with only 13 in attendance, but that didn’t damper the spirit as there was plenty of chatter going on.

Steve Sturtevant had sent us a very generous donation for our charity fund which now stands at $713.00 through February.  Thank you so much Steve, we really appreciate your kindness to the class.

We received very nice thank you notes from the three charities which we donated our funds to in December.  The community appreciates our donations to the different organizations. We should all be proud that the class has donated $6,700.00 back to Zanesville.

The letters have gone out for the class get together scheduled for July 28, 2018.  If you have not received a copy, please let me know and I will see that one is mailed to you.

Phyllis Young Bradshaw gave the benediction and a good time was had by all.  Happy Valentine’s Day to each of you.  Looking forward to hearing from you in the coming months.  God Bless You.

JANUARY 8, 2018 – This year is starting off with snow, rain and icy conditions so the monthly luncheon was cancelled for this month.  Stay connected as we will come together again in February.

On a sad note we have lost a classmate. Judith Pearson Blair passed away on December 28, 2017.  Judy is survived by her children, Susan (Bob) Weiland, Steven Pearson Shaw, Becky (Jeff) Bridges; her grandchildren, Abby (Gary) Sheaffer, Derek Weiland, Dillon(Amanda) Shaw, Kaylecia (Garen) King, Kayloni (Chandler) Baldwin, Michael Bridges, Jeremy (Christina) Bridges, Christopher (Lora) Bridges and Six great-grandchildren.  Our condolences to all of her family and friends.

The reunion is going to be held July 28, 2018, at The Virtues Golf Course with the Remember Then Band performing. Mark your calendars and plan on joining us for another fun evening.  Till next time, God Bless all of you.
