From Doug Nelson ('64) of VA - 08/13/18 (but only just discovered on 08/19/18) - "Re: Jerry Schweida - Class of 1962":
Lloyd ('61 - of VA) emailed me of Jerry's death yesterday. He was
a friend of Lloyd's and I always liked him. I used to play sandlot
football with Lloyd and Jerry before we were in high school. I was a
underweight, scrawny little kid. But I liked to play football. I would
try with all my might to tackle Jerry. And, as I remember, I actually
did rarely. Perhaps he was being kind. I remember being sent through the
air trying to tackle him. I was lucky he didn't kill me.
The last time I saw Jerry was at the 1996 NNHS reunion event in Saunders Stadium. I went to shake his hand. But I am not sure he knew who I was.
Thank you so much for this remembrance, Doug! I'm sorry I missed it before, but it's now been added to Jerry's Memorial Newsletter.
From My Daughter-in-Law, Laura Adams Harty (Cardston HS, Alberta - '95) of NC - 08/17/18 - "RE: My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - Most Popular Boy in the Class of 1990) of NC":
|So very proud of you, Brent! Starting your teaching career (teaching history and social studies at Overhills Hill School) and transitioning out of the ARMY! This is going to be a great year! ...You are looking handsome as always!|
From Mark Hutcherson ('66) of VA- 08/18/18:
“Put your middle finger and your thumb together. And make it snappy.”

If held to the sun their sugary flesh is almost metallic in color. This week I decided to take my love of strawberries one step further and create this crochet pattern for you to enjoy. There are so many uses for this pattern, from decorating kids apparel to a zipper pull on your purse.
