We seem to all be suffering a common problem these days, WHERE DID OUR LIVES GO? Our brains seem to still be 18, but our bodies are talking a different language. Sarah Orne Jewett puts it much more eloquently than do I:

“Neither of my companions was troubled by her burden of years. I hoped in my heart that I might be like them as I lived on into age, and then smiled to think that I too was no longer very young. So we always keep the same hearts, though our outer framework fails and shows the touch of time.”

NEW KIRKWOOD SCHOOL DISTRICT ALUMNI HALL OF FAME

If you read the back posts, you'll learn about the first Alumni Athletic Hall of Fame instituted earlier this year. There will be new members added, and another induction banquet, every other year. In the intervening years, deserving alumni will be honored through the new Alumni Hall of Fame. The nomination form is found at www.kirkwoodschools.org/community/alumni/alumnihalloffame/. Criteria are that the nominee must have graduated at least 10 years prior to nomination; High achievement in 1 or more recognized cultural fields such as art, music, theatre, dance, literature and others. Other criteria: Extraordinary success in trade, business or industry; significant contributions through charitable work or good deeds; excellence in service to a recognized profession such as law, education, medicine, science, journalism and others. You can download the form then mail it in.
This is an exciting way to honor and recognize Kirkwood citizens of note and I hope you will all give some thought to people you might know who deserve this honor.

Be sure to check out the latest issue of Webster-Kirkwood Times for a two page spread on Kirkwood School District activities - hint, time for turkey & football!!! www.timesnewspapers.com
