“Cherish all your happy moments; they
make a fine cushion for old age.”

Booth Tarkington
(29 July 1869 - 19 May 1946)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   I always have happy thoughts connected to this golden oldie, but I seem to have forgotten the associated memories. I'm sure they were lovely...

BONUS #1 - Cherish - The Association, 1966

BONUS #2 - Cherish - The Association, 1983


"Cherish" is a pop song written by Terry Kirkman and recorded by The Association. Released in 1966, the song reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in September of that year and remained in the top position for three weeks. In Canada, the song also reached number one.

Session musician Doug Rhodes, also member of The Music Machine, played the Celesta on the recording...

From Maureen O'Brien Lowder ('68) of VA - 09/26/18:


There is only one gate entrance on 32nd Street. The gate will be open Saturday morning. Please enter thru that gate and park there. Be there by 10:45 for an 11:00 am start.

Robbie Shields Stowe and Eddie Vest from the class of 1968 will be there to represent the 1968 Reunion Committee.

The tour will take place on Saturday, September 29th at 11:00 A.M. (The tour was previously scheduled for 12:00 Noon). There will be two groups taking the tour simultaneously in different directions in the building.

Everyone should take 32nd Street to the second gate behind the school. They are allowing us to use the parking lot. You must be signed up for the tour in order to attend. A list of names of people who signed up on the Website will be given to the guard at the building. The guard will check ID's, so its imperative that everyone have a valid ID in order to get into the building. Everyone will gather in the parking lot and will be taken in at the same time by a docent (NNHS alumni) and a navy representative. Please try to be there by 10:45 A.M.!!! If you are late, you may not be permitted to take the tour.

The tour groups will likely see only arts of the first two floors, gym, and what was our cafeteria. Elizabeth has been granted permission for a group picture on the stairway.

If you know anyone who has signed up for the tour please pass this information along to them.  

   Thank you so much, Maureen! Y'all have fun!

The family recipes we cherish...


From - 09/26/18:

My wife and I went to a "Dude Ranch" while in Texas.

The cowboy preparing the horses asked if she wanted a Western or English saddle, and she asked what the difference was. He told her one had a horn and one didn't.

"Well," she replied, "the one without the horn is fine. I don't expect we'll run into too much traffic."

Recorded by The Association, 1966

 Cherish is the word I use to describe
All the feeling that I have hiding here for you inside
You don't know how many times I've wished that I had told you
You don't know how many times I've wished that I could hold you
You don't know how many times I've wished that I could
Mold you into someone who could
Cherish me as much as I cherish you

Oh I'm beginning to think that man has never found
The words that could make you want me
That have the right amount of letters, just the right sound
That could make you hear, make you see
That you are drivin' me out of my mind

Oh I could say I need you but then you'd realize
That I want you just like a thousand other guys
Who'd say they loved you With all the rest of their lies
When all they wanted was to touch your face, your hands
And gaze into your eyes

Perish is the word that more than applies
To the hope in my heart each time I realize
That I am not gonna be the one to share your dreams
That I am not gonna be the one to share your schemes
That I am not gonna be the one to share what
Seems to be the life that you could
Cherish as much as I do yours

Cherish is the word I use to describe
All the feeling that I have hiding here for you inside
You don't know how many times I've wished that I had told you
You don't know how many times I've wished that I could hold you
You don't know how many times I've wished that I could
Mold you into someone who could
Cherish me as much as I cherish you

And I do cherish you
And I do cherish you

Cherish is the word
