“April is a promise that May is bound to keep.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
There's just something about April - even THIS April.....
BONUS - April Love - Pat Boone, 1957
|"April Love" is a
popular song with
music by Sammy Fain
and lyrics by
Webster. It was written as the
theme song for a 1957
film of the same name starring
Pat Boone and
and directed by Henry
In the film, the Pat Boone character, Nick Conover, leaves Chicago after being put on probation for stealing a car. Living and working on the Kentucky farm of his uncle Jed Bruce and his aunt Henrietta, he falls in love with a neighbour's daughter, played by Shirley Jones. In the same way that Boone is often criticised for singing watered-down versions of rhythm and blues songs, the film April Love can be seen as a milder version of James Dean's Rebel Without a Cause (1955) or Marlon Brando's The Wild One (1955).
Helped by the release of the film, "April Love" became a number-one hit in the United States for Pat Boone in December 1957. In 1958, it was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Music, Original Song.
From Lynn Walker Brothers ('65) of VA - 04/01/20, 12:57 PM - "55-Year Class Reunion for the Class of 1965":
|March 31, 2020
Due to the current situation with the coronavirus, it is necessary to cancel our 55-Year Class Reunion.
We plan on rescheduling this event in the fall. We will keep you posted.
I heard this quote today which seemed so
appropriate for the time,“What you focus on, you create more of,” so
instead of focusing on the negative, find positive ways of dealing with
the anxiety created by this virus, that we are all experiencing, and
stay safe. Hope to see everyone in the fall.
QUITE UNDERSTANDABLE! Thank you so much, Lynn!
