Sometimes in life mere words cannot express true feelings of gratitude. That is the case with our thanks to Janet Hurta. Janet is not a graduate of our class but instead the spouse of our graduate, Glenn Hurta, although we made her an honorary graduate many years ago. Janet has kept our directory current for more years than I can remember. I would say she started that task around 1980/1985. We have been a very mobile class and it seems as soon as Janet brought it “up-to-date”, in the next hour or so, we would get yet another change.
The old saying, “All good things must come to an end” is so true as Janet is now ending her artistic and professional work for us. Janet’s computer crashed and she no longer has access to her software. She put our directory into a word document and PDF file making it easily transferable for her replacement. Janet said it is not fancy but it is time for someone else to take over the reins.
Thank you very much, Janet, for all the hours you have donated to our class. Please know that our hearts are full of gratitude for all your efforts. Good luck in your retirement–have fun and stay healthy!
Now, an Exciting Announcement!
I am proud to announce that David Dibb of Florence, South Carolina has agreed to take over the responsibility of our directory. All this “techy stuff” is not new to David at all. He writes two columns for Golden Life, a Seniors’ newspaper in Florence. I have been lucky enough to receive a copy for the past year or so. Rest assured that our class directory is in most capable hands! David was featured in the SHOW and TELL segment of the Town Crier in the January 2019 issue. Also, he is the one with those beautiful Japanese Maple trees!
Please do not hesitate to let us know of any contact changes you have. We are indeed so lucky to have graduates willing to give their time and talents to our class. We have got to have the best class ever.
