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.”

UNFORTUNATELY IT'S UPON US - OUR 50TH ANNIVERSARY REUNION LOOMS IN 2015

As difficult as it is for me to believe it, we're at that time when a 50th Reunion, our GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY, must be considered.  HOW can this have happened?  We're all asking that same question!!!  

SAVE THE DATE!!  Weekend of October 9 - 11, 2015.  A dinner dance at Greenbriar will anchor the weekend, with a casual get-together Friday night, as always.  We'll likely have one or some school tours on Saturday, and a picnic at Kirkwood Park on Sunday.  There is a plan afoot that we might also offer a brunch on Sunday... and a group is thinking about a CRUISE to somewhere tropical, think Bahamas, too!  Please keep an eye on our FB pages, KHS65 or KHS65Blog, our website www.khs65.com and here for updates as often as we have them.  The Committee is large, so lots of good ideas should flow, and Karen Lowe Adams has done a lot of preliminary footwork so it is really shaping up...no matter HOW difficult it is to believe it's this time of our lives! PLEASE send me any address, email, phone updates so we can get our database up to the most current status - we want to find everyone! Call, email leslie@khs65 dot com, or reach me thru any of our online 'places'.  I'm sooo easy to reach!
