OUR LOCAL GET TOGETHER
2014 - 2:00 pm
We local yokels met Saturday the 19th of April for our latest get together. Good conversation, friendship and BBQ were the order of the day. Attendance was great and by popular demand, we will meet there again in October. Thanks to all who support this twice yearly effort. Have a great summer and hope to see you in the fall.
"A Little BBQ Joint" is a family owned business located at 24hwy and River Blvd. in Independence. Great BBQ and great atmosphere....I think you will like it.

www.alittlebarbqjoint.com Many thanks to our contributors who have the THS68 site funded through July 2016. Once it is funded through May of 2018, it will then be free to us from that time on. If you have ever thought about it, this would be a good time.
After graduating from THS, I enrolled in the pioneer class at Mid-America Nazarene College in Olathe, KS. I received my degree in English Education and headed out to Dighton, Ks to be the high school librarian and teach writing and literature classes 2 hours of the day. For those of you who may not be aware, the big town of Dighton is the hub of Lane County and had the only traffic signal in the county right in the middle of town. After one year, I decided I would move back home and live where I wanted to live. If I could find a teaching job, fine - if not I would do something else. I have been doing "something else" ever since. I worked for Montgomery Ward in their Corporate Accounts Payable offices for 15 years, until they decided to move the office to Chicago. I turned down the opportunity to move, because I did not think Montgomery Ward was going to make it. Sure am glad I made that decision. I now work for Kansas City Power & Light and just completed my 20th year in January. I have no plans to retire early, because I enjoy the work and I love the people I work with.
I keep myself very busy, I have been the church treasurer for 13 years, which takes up most of my "spare time". God has been so good to me and has brought many wonderful people into my life. It is a joy to be able to serve Him.
I still find time to travel, which is about my favorite thing to do. I love exploring new places and visiting with family and friends.

Was it only yesterday we said "hi" in the hallway or shared the same class?
Was it only yesterday we talked on the phone or crammed for a test?
Was it only yesterday we held our diplomas and said our good byes?
Was it only yesterday we heard of your passing?
And we cried.

"I have to tell you that I LOVE your site! I have used it to plan several reunions now and I so appreciate your efforts and support. Thanks so much!"
"This is the supreme class reunion program out there. Those other sites charge you for almost everything you use or research.

Classreport is the Epic Smart way to manage your class activities and reunions. We consider this program as a legacy to our classes."
