Friday evening we’ll meet at 7:00 PM at the home of Lynn Walker Brothers ’65 and her husband Barry (York HS - '65). They have graciously extended an offer to open their home for the event. Light hors d’oeuvres will be served, and we would request a $5.00 donation to assist in covering the expenses for that evening if you attend. The change in location was decided when members of the reunion committee thought the original location might not be as suitable for conversation as originally planned. The Brothers residence is located at 304 Dogwood Drive, Newport News. The telephone number is 757-595-4116. We’ll post a map providing directions.

Love the babies! Thanks! Give this heart to everyone you DON'T want to lose in 2010 including me.
"Be kinder than necessary because everyone
If I want my dreams to come true, I mustn't oversleep.
Friends are like balloons; once you let them go, you might not get them back. Sometimes we get so busy with our own lives and problems that we may not even notice that we've let them fly away. Sometimes we are so caught up in who's right and who's wrong that we forget what's right and wrong. Sometimes we just don't realize what real friendship means until it is too late. I don't want to let that happen so I'm gonna tie you to my heart so I never lose you. Send it to some balloons that you think have flown away forever. You may be surprised to see it return. Send this heart to everybody you like.
Send this heart to everybody that has touched your life in a positive way. Thank you for being in my life!!!
Thanks so much, Judy!
From http://www.selfgrowth.com - 09/15/10 - "First Impressions":
How to Make a Strong First Impression: Seven Tips That Really
Work - By Bill Lampton
We have all heard this warning: "You never get a second chance to make a
good first impression." Also, psychologists, writers, and seminar
leaders caution that we only have from seven to seventeen seconds of
interacting with strangers before they form an opinion of us.
From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) - 09/10/10 - "~Old Timers~ (#6 of 10)":
Only one a day.
A couple in their nineties are both having
problems remembering things. During a checkup, the doctor tells them
that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing
things down to help them remember.
Contact Dr. Chambers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
