Oval Callout: Gotta minute?

Dec 06, 2017

Hi Everyone~~

In the rearview mirror of November was my trip to Europe with my Granddaughter Tia, Cousin Cathy and her Granddaughter Brandi from Nebraska along with a fun group of people. The trip was World War II related so we visited three concentration camps along with other related sites. Tia had just studied in school about  the Auschwitz/Birkenau Concentration camp so that is the reason I took her along with me. We started out in Germany with the Dachau Concentration Camp, then on to Czech Republic for Terezin Concentration Camp and next to Poland for the  Auschwitz/Birkenau Concentration Camp. It was a sobering but fun trip and was glad to be back home in time for Thanksgiving which was a fun time with family as I am sure you had a great Thanksgiving time as well. Always a thankful time.

Basketball season is gearing up for our Lady Kats and Kats so if you are in the area go to a home game and support our teams. Good luck to them.

We are going to be sending out our annual Alumni Newsletters in March so if you have moved since last year please make sure I have your current address so you can receive yours and we don't get a lot of returns like last year. Waste of time and money on stamps that could be used elsewhere. Thank you!

I suppose like me you are now smack dab in the middle of the Christmas season. Another thankful holiday to enjoy with friends and family. Having been gone on that trip I had to double time getting Christmas cards out, decorate the outside of the house and the inside and the gift shopping. So all is going pretty good and I hope you are having a great and not stressful time in getting ready. Have a very Merry Christmas and if you find someone without a smile while you are out and about, give them one of yours.

Until next time--

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.

Hi Everyone~~

Hope you had a good Halloween in spite of the cold weather. Again this year I had one trick or treater. Guess most of my neighborhood kids are grown and with the truck or treats that go on that is the way to go. Plus the mall. Anyway another one under the belt and now on to Thanksgiving.

Seen where Chase had snow the other day and thankful that it didn't make it over this far. So not ready for winter but as with anything else, time marches on.

With football over we are gearing up for some basketball, good luck to the teams.

Not much else to talk about since the reunion is over and the dust has settled. Always sad at this part of it but can look forward to the next one. Hope if you didn't make this one, you can do so next time. Always good to see our fellow Chase Kats!

Until next time--

Sherry Bliss Cole, Class of 1964
