Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Isn't that still just the cutest little silly happy bunny ever?!?

   And now for your big Easter surprise:


From Fred Eubank ('64) of TX - 03/23/05:

Carol,

Attached are photos (actually the same photo, one large and one small) of Parkview Baptist Church, Vacation Bible
School. The resolution is good at 500 dpi, which means you should be able to zoom in close enough to recognize faces.

I was probably in the third or fourth grade, so it was taken in 1955 or 1956. Many of the kids can be recognized.
For example, Robert Jeffries ('63), first row, left end, Jimmy Lamb ('63) third row, 5
th from left, Thommy Rowell
('64)
, third row, 6th from left, Linda Long ('64), third row, 6th from right, Lonnie Berry ('65), first row, 5th from left,
yours truly ('64), first row, 4th from right, Ken Taylor ('65), first row, 3rd from right, and Bob Davis ('65) , first row,
right end. Iím sure there are other NNHS alumni in the picture, but I canít recognize any more.

         
             
             

Also, maybe you can add the following to your ďOur Places of WorshipĒ page. I think the church still exists at,

Parkview Baptist Church
604 Hilton Blvd.
Newport News, VA  23605
757-247-0491

   And while I was there, I made a page for Tabernacle Baptist Church, as suggested by Jimmy Hines ('64) of Northern VA:

   And thank you, Jimmy!


From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX - 03/27/05:

Carol

I lived off of Parrish Avenue on 24th Street when going to NNHS.  I just wanted how many more out there
lived around that area. I know there were the Bolden's, Phelps', Stoops',  Ivey's, Strickland's, Wilkinson's,
Baker's, Gillis', and thatís all I can remember right now.  This would have been in 50's and 60's.

Glenn

   Well, I just don't know, Glenn.  As we have amply demonstrated on many occasions, I "don' know nuffin' 'bout nuffin'" - and if
I had known, I would have forgotten it by now.  However, there are some truly remarkable memories out there which have been
blessedly left intact, so y'all write in and let us know, please!


   By the way, you will all be so proud of me.  I had company for Easter dinner - and I actually cooked!  Yes, that's right.  I do
that from three to fifteen times a year whether I need to or not.  I made a large baked ham with honey glaze garnished
with pineapples and maraschino cherries, glazed carrots, Easy Party Potatoes, hot dinner rolls with butter, Five-Cup Fruit
Salad, Sour Cream Pie, ice cream, and lemonade.  There may have been more; I don't remember.

   As a matter of fact, I'm too tired now to remember much of anything - even how to giggle - so I'm going to go fall into bed now.


  There will be more surprises tomorrow.

  Y'all take care of each other!  TYPHOONS FOREVER!

                          Love to all, Carol

Easter Parade

Irving Berlin,1933


In your Easter bonnet with all the frills upon it
You'll be the grandest lady in the Easter Parade
I'll be all in clover and when they look you over
I'll be the proudest fellow in that Easter Parade

On the avenue, I'm talkin' 'bout 5th Avenue
The photographers will snap us
And you'll find that you're in the rotogravure

Oh, I could write a sonnet about your Easter bonnet
And of the girl I'm taking to that Easter Parade

(In your Easter bonnet with all the frills upon it
