70th Birthday Bash pictures are viewable...!
The slide show program wouldn't let me place all pictures into one album, therefore I had to split them into two presentations; Album 1 above and Album 2 below.
Click anywhere within the picture frame or text. Once in, click on "Slideshow" to advance pictures after 4 second delay. You can change the speed by clicking the down arrow and selecting the speed you want.

6/8/2013 A message from Lynn Pollard Stevens on turning 70. Yikes...!
Now, it's 2013, and I've turned 70 !!! For a low-key celebration, my two "kids" took me on a 3-day cruise out of Long Beach. We kayaked off Catalina Island and rode horses in Ensenada, Mexi
. . .
After my first year at Arizona State College in Flagstaff, I transferred to Memphis State University where I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Journalism. Instead of becoming a newpaper reporter, I married the City Editor of the Memphis Commerical Appeal and worked in advertising. My husband transferred to the Washington Star and we lived in the DC area until our divorce in 1977. After 20 years of alcoholic drinking, I went into treatment and have now been clean and sober for 33 years. I remain active in 12 step support groups. In 1979 I remarried and moved to Roanoke, VA where my husband was the News Director of Channel 10 NBC. (Just can't leave those journalists alone!) My recovery afforded me a whole new career and I became an Addictions Counselor. I worked in private treatment for 14 years and then with the Department of Corrrections as a Social Work Supervisor 18 years. In 2009 the prison where I was employed closed and I became the state's oldest, highest paid Probation Officer. I am now working on the Sex Offender Team and this presents many new challenges. My husband of 30 years died a month after this move. God is so good, He knew I would need to keep working. Continuing to work allows me to continue traveling and next on my agenda is Rwanda where I sponsor a little girl. At age 50, for fun, I took up Taekwondo and am a Second Degree Black. I have loving children, grandchildren, wonderful friends, good health...a truly blessed woman who is eagerly anticipating this Reunion.
