06/03/05 - Old Style NNHS Newsletter -Mr. Mac's Memorial Service PLUS
Sunny Erlach Weinberg
Dear Friends and Classmates,
I had hoped to have my new computer before I wrote
to you again, but it has not yet arrived. Needless to
say, I await that moment most anxiously so we can all
get back to business. Until then, this is an example
of an "Old-Style" Newsletter - very blah. Sorry. I
would not even have attempted such a tedious project,
except that I had some time-sensitive material to
distribute to you.
Those of you from the Great NNHS Class of 1965
graduated forty years ago tonight. Congratulations!
We have at least 35 Newbies with us now. They will
be listed on the next "real" newsletter, but for now
we bid them welcome, one and all.
If y'all will send me your birthdays, we'll add
them to the Birthday Page as well as the Alumni Page
as soon as my new "real" computer arrives:
Hit #35,000 was made on the web site yesterday
morning at 8:26. I can't prove it yet, but I believe
it was made by Donna Chadwell Nunemaker ('64) of VA
and FL. If so, congratulations! There is a prize
associated with this, but I am notoriously slow at
From Joe Drewry ('58) of VA - 06/02/05:
A Memorial Service for Mr. Mac will be held at
McIntosh Elementary School on Sunday, 6/5/05. It will
be a good time to reconnect with NNHS classmate and
pay respects to one of the "Greatest Generation"
Place: McIntosh Elementary School, 185 Richneck Road
Program: Speakers and NNHS Alumni Reception with
FYI: I have been assured that the school provided the
Daily Press with a press release about the event. As
of Thu. June 2nd, the Daily Press has not published
any article or notice of the event. I suggest that
each of you call or email Ernie Gates, VP and Editor,
to let him know how you feel.

Let your voices be heard
Thanks, Joe! I claim no expertise in perusing
e-newspapers, but I wasn't able to find any such
announcement in today's edition either.
There's about a 50% chance that I myself might
actually make it to this service Sunday afternoon, but
I'll know more later.
