Comments:

My hat's off to those working diligently to plan, organize and schedule a quality and safe reunion for us in the face of a very persistent contagion:

Linwood Barrow, Gary Cyrus, Pat Ward, Debbie Harris, Norma Orrell Matthews and husband, Melvin; Walker and Janet Reagan. Thanks!

Thanks also to Linwood for making us aware when there has been a death of a class member.

School Story:

5th grade: Carlton Cable telling Miss Weeks to "go to Haiti!" then quickly showing her where it was on the map

At Aycock, Gene Watkins suddenly fainting from the next to the highest row in the risers during a choral performance

November afternoon in 6th grade: teacher, Mrs. Perry, returning to a spot just inside the classroom after being asked out in the hall by Mr. Jefferson and saying "Boys and girls, our President has been shot."

7th Mr. Carroll's English class: Michael Lilly's expressive and greatly entertaining presentations of his themes.

Mrs. Beamer's 11th grade(?) English class: my buddy David Sugg beginning a presentation to the class by singing the first line of Barbara Lewis's song: "Are You Ready?"...with no one in the class singing "yes, I'm ready" back.

12th grade: a Mrs. Wilson-directed chorus doing the medley: Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine and Vernel (?) stepping out and getting into it...
