From My #1 Daughter-in-Law, Mary Bennett Harty (Litchfield HS, IL - '89) of IL - 01/09/10 - " Andrew's (Harty - Collinsville HS, IL - '10 - of IL) Eagle Scout Court of Honor":

From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 01/09/10 - "Suggestion for theme music.":
May I suggest that you consider the song "Ordinary Lives" by the Bee Gees as a theme for one of your Newsletters?
The line in the song "Ordinary People living Ordinary Lives" somehow seems to apply to our youth in Newport News.
One very hot evening in Philadelphia, at an outdoor venue while watching and listening to Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb sing this song it struck me as being almost ironic. They were hardly ordinary people living ordinary lives as they withstood the oppressive heat and humidity to carry on the concert and give it their all to entertain the audience. I sure miss the creative music of this group. This song was from their album "One."
Hope this suggestion is not too corny.
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL
Corny? I wouldn't know. Being one of the corniest people around myself, I am unable to recognize it as it exists elsewhere.....
Thanks, Adonis! We'll be using this theme very, very soon now!

In the interest
of time, I used maiden names. We had a great time. It was so great to see all
our classmates. They all looked so wonderful.
Goooo Class of 64
In light of the fact that it took me three full months to process and post all your lovely images, that was an interesting choice of words, Cookie, but here they are at last:
