OHHHH!  You're still all so beautiful!  Thanks, Dave!

Tonight we held our "Wrap-Up" Reunion Committee meeting,
and I thought you would want an image of it.
The "Plan" was to look completely exhausted,
but I seem to be the only one who was "in character".

Sandra Williams Patrick,
Nelson Groom, Faith Strickland Groom, and Dave Spriggs.

I am sure that each of you is as thrilled as I am that Coach Mitchell will honor us with his presence. Please pass the word around the Class network. No one will want to miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to relive a little bit of our glorious basketball history or to personally thank Coach and
the Team for what they did for all of us.

Hope to see you there. We will review the budget and decide on ticket prices, photographer, Rusty Anchor printing, et. al.

Warmest regards,
Dave

- Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 06/07/04
Thanks, Dave!

 

 
03 JUNE MEETING CANCELLED

I seem to have an uncanny knack for selecting meeting dates for which most members cannot attend.
Perhaps we will have to resort to "virtual" meetings by e-mail.
Stay tuned for another attempt in the near future.

Warmest regards,
Dave

- Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 06/03/04
Thanks, Dave!

 

 

WE WILL MEET AT THE OMNI AT 5:30 PM
THURSDAY, JUNE 3, 2004.

SEE YOU THEN,
DAVE

- Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 06/02/04
Thanks, Dave!
 

 

Unfortunately, I am unable to muster up a quorum for the Monday, 24 May, meeting,
so I am officially postponing it. 

I will try to sked it for the week of 31 May, but not on the Monday Holiday.

Sorry for the false alarm.


- Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 05/21/04
Thanks, Dave!
 
 

NEXT COMMITTEE MEETING :  Monday, 24 May 2004, at 5:30 PM
 

Ray & Karen will be on a much-deserved vacation on 24 May, so we cannot meet at the Bank of America.

Plan B: I propose we meet in lobby of the OMNI ... in the snack bar area where there are tables and chairs.
I'll even spring for the refreshments, again.
I wouldn't mind taking another look at the "Room" just to visualize how we might set it up.

 

This is a very important meeting wherein some big decisions need to be made.

The Post Office Box has been empty for several days. I now believe that I have received all the Surveys
which I can expect, with perhaps a few more to dribble in.  Here is the current status:

# First mailings sent out:              230
# Surveys received:               51
# Planning to Attend:             77
Total donations to Treasury:    $2540

- Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 05/18/04
Thanks, Dave!
 

 

NEXT COMMITTEE MEETING:  Wednesday, 31 March 2004, at 5:30 PM
at the usual location ... Bank of America at Patrick Henry Mall.

- Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 03/27/04
Thanks, Dave!

After disqualifying the Committee who had an unfair advantage ....
the honor of being the first to respond to the mailing and to make the commitment to attend is a tie:
Randy Bearor and Judy White Hoyle.

Of course, they both live on the Peninsula and received the mailing much
sooner than other classmates, so it is an unfair contest.
Still, it is a milestone worth noting.

Brenda Fisher Whitehurst also replied, but is unable to attend.

 

- Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 03/09/04

The Class of 1964 has scheduled its 40 year reunion for Friday and Saturday,
the 22nd and 23rd of October 2004 at the OMNI Newport News Hotel. 
All NNHS Alumni of all Classes will be invited to the Friday night informal social. 
An announcement will be mailed soon to all NNHS '64 Alumni for whom we have confirmed addresses.
This announcement will contain a survey on which we will ask you to indicate your intention to attend.
The response to this survey will determine the reservation cost for each attendee,
so it is essential that it be completed and returned to us as soon as possible.
A subsequent mailing will provide event details and an invitation to submit reservations.
We look forward to seeing each and every one of you.

- Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 02/17/04
Thanks, Dave!

 
Once again the elements are against us.
At the time of this writing (9:30 AM), it doesn't look so bad here in Norfolk,
but the Weather Channel on the Internet is forecasting (1) Rain, (2) Snow, and
(3) Rain/Snow beginning in the early afternoon on the Peninsula.
I am listening to the radio and they are even saying (4) Sleet.

So, regrettably, I must postpone the meeting for tonight.

- Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 02/17/04
Thanks, Dave!

at 5:30 PM, Monday, 2 February 2004 at the Bank of America Building at Patrick Henry Mall.

- Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 01/29/04
Thanks, Dave!

 
It appears that the Fates have again conspired against us.
Given the icy conditions on the roads and temperatures remaining below freezing for the day,
it makes no sense to risk our lives out there driving after dark.
Stay tuned for a rescheduled date.


- Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 01/26/04
Thanks, Dave!
 
The next meeting will be at 5:30 PM, Monday, 26 January 2004 at the Bank of America Building at Patrick Henry Mall.

- Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 11/24/03
Thanks, Dave!

 
This second meeting was cancelled due to horrendous rains.  It was agreed to postpone meeting until after Thanksgiving.
 
The next planning meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 19, 2003 - same Bat Time, Same Bat Place.
Try to be there to help.
 

Don't know why this didn't come to me months ago.
It is TOOOO perfect on several levels .... and VERY recognizable:
THE PERFECT MIDI FOR THE '64 REUNION PAGE - The Beatles' "When I'm Sixty-Four"

- Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 06/01/04
But, of course!  Thanks, Dave!


When I'm Sixty-Four

- John Lennon and Paul McCartney


When I get older, losing my hair,
Many years from now,
Will you still be sending me a valentine,
Birthday greetings, bottle of wine?
If I'd been out 'til quarter to three,
Would you lock the door?
Will you still need me,
Will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four?

Every summer, we could rent a cottage in the Isle of Wight,
If it's not too dear.
Oh, you'll be older too - Ah!
And if you say the word, I could stay with you.

I could be handy mending a fuse
When your lights have gone.
You can knit a sweater by the fireside,
Sunday mornings, go for a ride,
Doing the garden, digging the weeds,
Who could ask for more?
Will you still need me,
Will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four?

Every summer, we could rent a cottage in the Isle of White,
If it's not too dear.
We shall scrimp and save, grandchildren at your knees,
Vera, Chuck, and Dave.

Send me a postcard, drop me a line,
Stating point of view.
Indicate precisely what you mean to say,
Yours sincerely, wasting away,
Give me an answer, fill in a form,
Mine forevermore.
Will you still need me,
Will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four?
