From Harry Simpson ('54) of VA - 04/28/09 - "NNHS Class of 1954":
I want to "Thank You" for including the NNHS Class of 1954 Reunion after 55 years since our graduation on your 65 Website. I received several messages of sincere encouragement for our weekend. That Reunion has come and gone now, and we had 75 people at our Saturday evening dinner. It was indeed a very good reunion for us older graduates. We are NOT going to wait 5 more years until our next gathering, but we intend to try either a yearly mini-reunion or at least every two (2) years. We TYPHOONS want to take care of each other !!
Dr. Harry Simpson, 1954 Reunion Chairperson
Thanks, Harry - it's good to hear your weekend was so successful!
From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 04/29/09 - "Very moving video!!":
This came to me from a former co-worker.
You will be glad you watched it.
If you go to YOU-TUBE and search on this video title, you will find a longer version and other videos by this remarkable man.
Thank you, David! The YouTube path was my only choice for inclusion here - and it is quite poignant indeed!

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 04/28/09 - "Random Tidbits":
From Henry Hoyle ('65) of Northern VA - 04/29/09 - "HHS 64 Reunion":
Hi Cousin Carol,
Yes, Yvonne (Peters Hoyle) is HHS 64, and we'll be at the reunion. We are just going to the Saturday evening dinner. Saturday morning we're going bicycling around Williamsburg in an organized bike ride called Pedal the Peninsula:
COOL BEANS! What a great way to spend a lovely day in May! Thanks, Cousin Henry - y'all have fun!
From Bill Black ('66) of GA - 04/29/09 - "Memories of Susan Price ('68)....":
If anybody is still in touch with Susan Price, just tell her Bill Black said: "No big deal... The judge only took my driver's license for ninety days. I just couldn't drive all summer, but that was my John Yancey Summer, and I could walk to the beach... "
Yeah.. Susan Price.. How could I ever forget her?
GIGGLES! Thanks, Bill!
From Charlie Snead ('64) of NC - 04/29/09 - " Doug Nelson's ('64 - of VA) Recollection of Miss G at an Assembly":
I had a sudden flash of
Jimmy Hines' ('64 - of Northern VA) rendition
of "Hot Nuts" as he strolled back and forth across the stage during our Senior
Assembly...she never knew what he was singing but was quoted as saying "that
surely is cute" ...
Ahh, the good old days!
I had surely forgotten that one - thanks, Charlie!
From Cheryl Mays Howard ('66) of VA - 04/29/09 - "Folk song":
well the song "Mary Hamilton". It was a regular song on my list that I sang.
Seems like so long ago! Thanks for including it in your letter....
Peace & Blessing,
Thank you, Cheryl! It was on my "singing-song" list as well - one of my very favorites!
From F.A. Saunders (Hampton HS - '64) of VA - 04/29/09 - "Folk Music":
Aw,! yes!! the good ole Hootenanny days, my kind of music. Cheryl Mays (Howard - '66 - of VA) and I had a great time back in the late 60's playing folk music around the Peninsula. We were part of a group called the Folk Idea which met once a month and shared folk songs. We even put on a concert once at Benjamin Syms Jr. High and Cheryl was there with her lovely voice. I still have the tape recording of that concert. I teamed up with Wayne Green (HHS 1960) to form the Shiloh Singers. We played many places around this area. Even played for the launching of the tanker ship El Paso at Newport News Shipbuilding & Dry Dock in 1968. That was a hoot. Dick Lamb heard about us and recruited us for his morning television show. We used to go over to WTAR studios on Sunday evening and record about 4 songs just before the 11 o'clock news. Dick would use them over the next couple of weeks and we would then go back and record some more. Even tried one time to do a live show with Bobbi Boecker, the exercise lady. Don't remember that going so well. Oh well !!
Sure would like to see folk music come back and I guess it will one of these days. I guess right now it's just Blowin' In The Wind.
GIGGLES! Thanks, F.A.!

I found my thrill on blueberry hill
On blueberry hill when I found you
The moon stood still on blueberry hill
And lingered until my dreams came true
The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody
But all of those vows we made
Were never to be
Tho' we're apart, you're part of me still
For you were my thrill on blueberry hill
The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody
But all of those vows we made
Were never to be
Tho' we're apart, you're part of me still
For you were my thrill on blueberry hill
