Hey everyone!

Now that Hurricane Dorian has made its presence known and is headed on out, I'm hoping that another storm will not stop me from attending the reunion in October! Tickets are purchased and prayting there is no early winter storm up there (or down here) to keep me away. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

I had to cancel a trip to TX for a family reunion this past weekend thinking we were going to be in the middle of the hurricane.  Gratefully, the storm's eye and hurricane force winds stayed off-shore in our area-tho we were prepared for the full force if it came our way.  We dodged a bullet but the Bahamas are devastated. 

It will take years for the northern Bahamanian islands to recover and likely months just to complete rescue and recovery.  Islands are underwater 5-15 feet, and will take time for it to receed.  Planes can't land as the runways are still underwater.  Preliminary reports are that buildings have been leveled just like in Mexico City Beach, FL, last year (due to Hurricane Michael, another cat 5 storm).  Getting supplies to people and setting up temporary shelters/homes is a massive undertaking.   Please pray for the people in the Bahamas, the rescue workers, and the emergency care givers as the tasks are daunting.  If any of you are part of service groups, please volunteer to help rebuild, fundraise to purchase supplies necessary to rebuild (I think the Fuller Center for Housing may be putting together a plan) or participate in clean up.  Until you've seen it and walked with the people whose lives have been destroyed, it is hard to understand the devastation of property and the impact on the survivors.  My husband and I have both been involved in clean up or rebuilds after hurricanes and it is absolutely depressing when you realize how massive the destruction is and how much effort is required to help get people back into a home of any sort.

Mary Ann, I still can't believe what the Bahamas look like now.  Sue and I "Won" a trip to the Bahamas back in the mid-nineties and I remember how flat the island was...

Jeanette, we will miss seeing you!  How well has the hip healed?

Looking forward to seeing many of you too bad we've lost some since the last reunion, my wife has changed her mind and will be joining me although she went to Concordia she knew most of our classmates. Here's my surprise that I had mentioned to Dave Frazer too cool to keep secret.

Yvette Fuchs (Nierenhausen)

Very cool! Glad your wife decided to join us! See you soon!

David Frazer

Thanks Yvette, Francene, and Bob for all you did to make the reunion great (and anyone else).  I also appreciated all the work the "kids" did and their costumes!  The only problem was that I was exhausted and was tired this morning.  How many more years before we have to be done by 6:00 pm so we can make our bedtime?  Again, thank you!

Patricia L. Origer (McDowell)

Job Well Done!  Thanks to all of you folks that worked so very hard to make our 45th such a success!  I, like so many others had a really good time.  I look forward to our next one and pray that our “ Memory Board” numbers don’t increase.  It really is difficult to see, just how many incredible individuals we have lost thus far.  See you at our 50th!

Mary Lou DeForth (Hosler)

I, too, would like to thank all those involved in organizing our 45th ... and for the many classmates who traveled near and far to make the evening so memorable.  It is always good to take time and return to our roots ... remember and reflect on the years that brought us together ... we are all so richly blessed.  I also want to thank Steve Hardy for maintaining this website so we can all stay in touch and informed.
