MICK MARIETTA IS IN A NURSING HOME WHERE HE WILL REMAIN FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE AFTER A STROKE. HE WOULD ENJOY PHONE CALLS FROM HIS CHILDHOOD FRIENDS TO CHEER HIM UP. His number is 573 885-4500, ask for Mick Marietta. It may be difficult to communicate with him. Mail address is Cuba Manor, 210 Eldon Drive, Cuba, MO 65453.


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.”

KHS PAVING THE WAY Support the PIONEERS

In the mail a few days ago appeared a mailing from Kirkwood School District Foundation. I know some of you are on this mailing list, but I imagine not everyone is. KSDF is a not-for-profit organization formed in 1989 to raise funds for educational programs and major projects in the Kirkwood School District. I was involved in the forming of KSDF and later served a term on the Board; it was actually an outcropping of trying to form an Alumni Association. They have embarked on a new project to help improve the outdoor physical education and sports facilities at KHS. We all know how important sports are to KHS but also to the students as individuals, I don't need to expound on that subject to OUR group! Installation of a synthetic playing surface on Lyons Field and replacing the 8 lane track along with ADA compliance updates are the beginnings of the new KSDF initiatives. Naturally donations are being solicited. Here is a fun way to help which I thought you might like to hear about:

Paving the Way, BUY A BRICK. One can order a personalized brick to recognize a special student, graduate, family, teacher or business. Each brick becomes a part of the KHS campus. You can visit http://www.kirkwoodfoundation.org/ to buy your brick. I hope many of you will consider this as a way to help KHS and maybe honor someone in your circle! Remember, in our lives we don't have to go all the way to that 6th ring to find someone! PLEASE SEE WWW.KHS65.COM FOR CAMPUS PIX TAKEN DURING OUR REUNION WEEKEND; HERE ARE PIX OF THE BRICKS AS WELL AS UP TO THE MINUTE PHOTOS OF THE NEW TRACK & FOOTBALL FIELD AS OF THIS SUMMER. The 45th reunion pix are all in the 2010 album.
