Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

The Anniversary Waltz is a popular song written by Dave Franklin, the lyrics by Al Dubin. The song was published in 1941. It has been covered by Vera Lynn and Connie Francis. The title "Anniversary Waltz" is often mistakenly and confusingly used to refer to the entirely unrelated Anniversary Song.

  Thank you, Joan!

  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 07/13/20, @ 4:44 AM?

Well, here we are on another early Monday morning which I dub "Flickering Monday" since my satellite internet connection out here in the country is going in and out this morning. I hope Scotty isn't trying to beam me up in a Roswell moment. But have a great day and it should be a good one since we all should be well rested, had plenty of fun and the Spirit should have been topped off for another week. So, get things done, but always with a touch of fun, smile and be kind to all you meet. Remember, the only way others have of judging who and what you are is how you act around them. God be with you today and everyday. And if nothing else gets you going, maybe that little dog doing his jig will get you going. Back atcha' later.

    Thank you, Jimmy!


From Carlene Matthews Vannoy ('60 / '64) of VA - 07/11/16:

     ABSOLUTELY! Thank you so much, Carlene! I truly believe that's one of the reasons we were put upon this earth - to help others understand just how truly important they are!

The Anniversary Waltz

Lyrics by Al Dubin (10 June 1891 - 11 Feb 1945);
Music by David Franklin, 1941

We just discovered each other
Tonight when the lights were low
One dance led up to another
And now I can't let you go

So tell me I may always dance
The Anniversary Waltz with you
Tell me this is real romance
An anniversary dream come true

Let this be the answer
To our future years
Through millions of smiles
And a few little tears
May I always listen to
The Anniversary Waltz
With you

Let this be the answer
To our future years
Through millions of smiles
And a few little tears
May I always listen to
The Anniversary Waltz
With you...
