"No matter what accomplishments you make,
- Althea Gibson (1927-2003)
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I chose today's song simply because it's one of my favorites! As is common
with most (if not all) of Andrew Lloyd
Webber's music, it's a bit tricky to sing and requires an excellent range, but shouldn't we always be challenged
to exceed our normal limitations?
What an assortment of things we have today!!!
A very Happy 57th Birthday today to Chuck Springfield ('66) of VA.
Oh yeah, it's my birthday, too, only I'm a year older than Chuck.
1. Johnny Holland ('61) of VA via Gary Fitzgerald ('61) of VA - 08/29/05
Again, keep up the good work - thanks.
Thanks, Gary - and welcome, Johnny! I've added your name to the Alumni Page:
I'm going back
and recreating Memorial Pages that we missed over the last three months. I
began with Jay Bluxome
of the Class of 1964:
Somehow, as I told Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA, this seems to be even more difficult than creating them at the time.....
This information has also been added to the Memorial page for the Class of 1964:
From Brenda Amos Williams ('62) of VA - 08/28/05:
Just wanted you to see my baby, since all my children are grown. She is quite a ham and not spoiled much. My granddaughter is 13 so I have no babies anymore. Just keep waiting. I still have a single daughter and a now-single mom, so I just wait. :-) See ya! Brenda Williams Friends are Angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.

Brenda! She's so precious, she scarcely looks real! I'll take
your word for it that she is - how adorable!!!
Thanks so much! What happy pictures!
DO please come
to the reunion! There's going to be such fun stuff there, even if you only know
one or two people
in the room, you'll enjoy yourself! A Typhoon is a Typhoon!
From Jerry Gammon ('63) of VA - 08/29/05:
THANKS FOR THE MENTION. IF YOU SEE A PICTURE THAT
WOULD FIT A STORY,
I CAN FORWARD IT TO YOU...I AM NOT SURE THEY CAN BE DOWNLOADED
FROM THE SITE, BUT IF YOU CAN, GO FOR IT!
# 150 - "Lions Bridge -
East River Side"
# 151 -
West end of bridge, lakeside. Mariners Museum, Newport News, VA.
# 404 - "Twin Lions Bridge"
Both Lions on the west end
AHHHH!!! I told you I'd
have no trouble knowing where to start! I began with one of my Favorite
in the World - the Mariners' Museum and its magnificent lion statues! (You'll notice I had no trouble pilfering
the images, either! GIGGLES!!!)
I've added these to one of my (naturally enough!) favorite pages:
Thanks so very much, Jerry! What a delight!
Y'all go spend some more time looking through Jerry's Web site:
I don't guarantee that you'll get anything else done today, but - hey! GIGGLES!

by Christine Anas Thomas ('60) of TX; Gene Collins Glave ('60) of SC; and Neta Collins Hastings ('60) of V
OHHH, aren't these fun?!? Thanks so much, Gene!
Okay, I'll be honest. I
created a folder, and resized, compressed, and saved the images, but I haven't
them their own page as yet. I'll get right on it, but I did run out of time......
These are soooo cute, though! What a fun night that was!
From Joe Drewry ('58) of VA - 08/28/05 - "Please identify picture subjects - Boys Club":
|Recognition of the contribution of Herbie Morewitz to the Boys Club. Bill Hoyle is the presenter; Herbie is in the center; on the right is W. F. "Bill" Files.|
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 08/26/05:
From Carol Moell Marcella ('56) and Mickey Marcella ('54) of VA - 08/25/05:
Mickey says that the man on the right beside Herbie Morewitz is W. F.
He was an
executive of the Shipyard and on the board of directors of the Boys Club back in the 60s and 70s.
He was a very nice man who did a lot for the Boys Club. We now have 11 Boys and Girls Clubs:
1 in Mathews, 1 in Gloucester, 1 in Hampton, and 8 in Newport News. This coming month will be
one year since we took over the Boys & Girls Club on Hampton Avenue in NN, which was the black
Boys Club in NN when we were coming along. This is the one where Mike Vick and Allen Iverson
and Aaron Brooks came from. One of our Boys and Girls Club members was recently inducted
(into the) Football Hall of Fame. He went to TN All American and then went to Miami and wrestled
and played football at Warwick, who was Frank Immanuel. Add Henry Jordan and Norman Snead
to that list also.
Good hearing from you, Joe.
Thanks Joe, Joe, Mickey, and Carol! It took me a few days, but I've amended the page accordingly:
While we're there, why don't we identify the people in the next image as well??
Here is a photo to stimulate
interest among some of the older subscribers.
Name the Players.
From Gail Kiger Bonsey (Ferguson HS - '73) of OR - 08/30/05:
GIGGLES! Gail, you're a hoot! Thanks so much!

I added five missing interim "Old Style" Newsletters onto the site:
From Albert Dorner ('66) of VA - 05/10/05:
It is truly sad to hear about
Norman Dehart. He and I taught art together at both Denbigh and Dozier.
was one of the really genuine people I've ever worked with.
Thank you, Albert. This has actually been doubly-posted since 05/10/05:
What is making me frantic is
that Mr. Dehart's partner, David, sent me the obituary plus other images just as
my systems crashed. I'm afraid they may have been permanently lost, and I do not know how to contact him.
From Shirley Elder Tierney ('65) of - uh, Northern VA - 08/19/05:
Thank you, Shirley! I'm looking forward to seeing you again!
From Me ('65) of NC - 08/29/05:
If y'all are wondering why I
almost never answer you directly, except in the
Newsletters themselves, I'll "'fess up".
That was one of the things which gave rise to the Newsletter concept in the first place (that, and Frances Goodson
Wang - '65 - of MD, who began some round - robin emails a few years back!). It's an enormous time-saver for me
to be able to write 350 plus of you at once.
I know it seems rude of me, but it gives me more time to spend on the site itself. Plus .... well, I'm just rude...........
Y'all have a good day - and take care of each other! TYPHOONS FOREVER!
Love to all, Carol

- From the Broadway Musical, "Cats"
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber;
Lyrics by Trevor Nunn, based on poems by T. S. Eliot
Midnight. Not a sound from the pavement.
Has the moon lost her memory?
She is smiling alone.
In the lamplight
the withered leaves collect at my feet
And the wind begins to moan.
Memory. All alone in the moonlight
I can smile at the old days,
I was beautiful then.
I remember the time I knew what happiness was,
Let the memory live again.
Every street lamp seems to beat a fatalistic warning.
Someone mutters and a street lamp gutters
and soon it will be morning.
Daylight. I must wait for the sunrise,
I must think of a new life
And I mustn't give in.
When the dawn comes tonight will be a memory too
And a new day will begin.
Burnt out ends of smokey days,
the stale cold smell of morning.
The street lamp dies,
another night is over, another day is dawning.
Touch me. It's so easy to leave me
All alone with the memory
Of my days in the sun.
If you touch me you'll understand what happiness is.
Look, a new day has begun.
