150 people with sufficient cover to take care of any weather concerns. If you
made it to the 55th Birthday Party you'll recall it was held at the Park in one
of the smaller shelters. The facility we're using this time is a new addition
and will give us lots of flexibility to meet and reminisce. The cost of this
event is $15.00 per person through August 31, 2010. After that date the cost
will be $20.00 per person. The charge for Saturday will cover your food and

From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 07/21/10 - " Coach Harlan Hott":
Ever wonder what Coach Hott is doing these days?
Have a look here: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x8ng4o_natural-edge-bowl-part-1_lifestyle
A word of caution; The video has a commercial intro with loud volume. Also, the video file did not download
smoothly to my computer, but played, paused, loaded, played a little, paused and downloaded some more.
Good photo here: http://www.woodturnersofthevirginias.org/newsletters/oct_2009.pdf
Thank you so much, David!Here's another brand new page for which you're responsible:
http://www.nnhs65.com/teach-Hott.html - brand new page!
From Me ('65) of IL - 07/13/10 - "My Anniversary Gift to You (continued from Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday)":
I decided to actually work on the site itself and do some long overdue scanning. As a result, these pages are either entirely new or newly fleshed-out with images:
http://www.nnhs65.com/teach-Formichelli.html - brand new page!
http://www.nnhs65.com/teach-Fowler.html - brand new page!
Why, you may well wonder, did I concentrate solely on the Class of 1967?? That's because David Whitley ('67) of VA graciously loaned me his 1967 Anchor back in the Fall of 2006 and it's high time to return it to him!
Thanks again, Gorgeous!
NOTE: I had planned to finish several more sections, but this is taking even longer (and making me even nutzier!) than I had anticipated, so I'll be working on this for the next few days.
From Sydney Dearing ('56) of TN - 07/21/10 - "NNHS Cheers, etc.":
In the July 18th newsletter Glenn Dye ('60) of TX asked about some of the cheers we used to do at ball games and pep rallies. I remember two that were not listed in Susan Whitcomb Harlin's ('72 - of TX) list. The first was Two bits, four bits, six bits a dollar, all for Newport stand up and holler. Then we would jump up and scream like crazy. Then there was one that was only used for games with arch-rival Hampton High. It went like this: Crush the Crabbers, Crush the Crabbers, Crush the Crabbers rah! There may have been a second line to this cheer but to the best of my recollection, this one line was simply repeated over and over again.
Of course then the Hampton student body would respond with their own cheer: You can't crush a crab, you can't crush a crab, you can fight and fight with all your might but you can't crush a crab! Unfortunately during the annual Turkey Day Classic, they were usually right. In the 1951/52 school year (my first year at NNHS), we came into the game with an impressive 7-2 record but HHS beat us 48-0 and ruined a pretty good season. Actually, they beat us every year I was at NNHS except one and that ended in a tie. But we did make up for it in basketball.
Thanks so much, Sydney - I remember them both!And to help us all remember them, they are now posted at the bottom of the Cheerleaders page - along with some others!
From Carol Anne Comer Cutler ('70) of VA - 07/21/10 - "Wasps":
Something about those bees & wasps this year. I got stung about three weeks ago by an Eastern Yellow Jacket. I was taking a hummingbird feeder apart to wash, & one came out and stung me on the left thumb. Hurt like nothing I had ever felt before. Burning & then itching. Long story shortened....I ended up at Urgent Care because my left hand looked like someone had blown it up with an air hose. Got stung again last night on the left leg, but so far, so good!! They are aggressive little devils.
YOWZERONI! I hope you're feeling better now, Carol!Do be careful!
From My Cousin, Cheryl White Wilson (John Marshall HS - '64) of VA - 07/20/10 - "Tussing Elementary, Colonial Heights, VA":
This is where my grandson, Steven, will attend school this year!
This is absolutely grrrrrr8!
If you want to make your day, turn your speakers on and listen to this song - written by a teacher and sung by 3rd graders - it gave me chills.....
After all the bad press over a few teachers who stepped out of line teaching songs to our children, this one is one you will be so proud to hear. At the end of the song you can order the sheet music.
Awesome. I hope this sweeps our country and gets sung in all our schools. The music teacher wrote the song and had all the third graders sing. Enjoy -- great message.
From the third graders of Tussing Elementary, Colonial Heights, Virginia.
WOWZERS! Thank you, Cheryl!We've run this awesome video a couple of times ("prolly" while you were away in "New Yawk City"), but I didn't realize it all happened at what would become Steven's school!
From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 07/21/10 - "THE SIGN":
