03/22/18 - NNHS Newsletter - May the Good Lord Bless and Keep You
“I found you and I lost you,
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I was needing to hear the soothing sounds of Jim Reeves today.
BONUS - May the Good Lord Bless and Keep You - Jim Reeves
|"May the Good Lord Bless and Keep You" is a
popular song by
originally published in
The song is now considered a standard, recorded by many artists.
It was used as Tallulah Bankhead's theme song for her NBC radio program, "The Big Show." She recited the words in her ultra husky voice. The show featured many of the big stars of the day, and they would join Tallulah in reciting the words, one line per star, which made a memorable ending for the show.
However, it was most popular when it was regularly sung by Kate Smith on her early 50's TV show as the closing song. (Kate Smith enjoyed her own personal renaissance in the 70's when the Philadelphia Flyers (Pro Hockey Team) asked her to sing God Bless America at their most important games.)
A recording with Eddy Arnold, The Tennessee Plough Boys and his Guitar was made in New York City on December 13, 1950. It was released by RCA Victor Records as catalog number 20-0425 (in USA) and by EMI on the His Master's Voice label as catalog number MH 148.
From Lynn Walker Brothers ('65) of VA - 03/21/18, 2:16 PM - "NNHS '65 70th Birthday Celebration":
The class of NNHS 1965 reunion committee is planning a belated "70" birthday celebration. The committee wanted to keep it simple and just provide a time and place to socialize, share old memories and make new ones. We have reserved an area at The Cove Restaurant in City Center in Newport News. The restaurant is located across the fountain from the Marriott Hotel where we held our 50-year reunion. There is a parking garage adjacent to the restaurant.
Our birthday celebration will be held on Saturday, June 9th from 6 to 9 pm. If you would like to order appetizers, dinner or drinks, you will order from their regular menu and run your own tab. There will be no admission cost for you to attend. The only cost would be the food and beverages that you choose to order. The committee needs a RSVP by May 1st in order to notify the restaurant of how large an area we would need to reserve. You can respond to Lynn Walker Brothers at firstname.lastname@example.org, 757-595-4116 or Pauline Collins Shofner at email@example.com, 757-595-1965.
Let's come together and celebrate yet another milestone. We look forward to seeing everyone on June 9th!
SUPER-DE-DUPER! Thank you, Lynn - what wonderful news! From now until then, this information will appear in the DATES TO REMEMBER section at the bottom of every Newsletter, and it will be appearing in all the other usual sections on the site very soon.
