Waco Town Crier – September 2022

 

Here’s your September issue. Pat Payne is most generous to pay for our website all these years and Elizabeth Bentley is doing a terrific job of keeping our site current. They both have been a great blessing to our class and really deserve our credits and appreciation.

Two of our graduates have really helped to make this issue interesting. David Dibb has an interesting topic in his What Ever Happened To? segment and David Ditto has been great to let us know of his adventures since high school graduation. All you horse lovers will really enjoy David Ditto’s travels along the “unpaved trails” of our beautiful country. Also, much appreciation goes out to you who contribute each month to the Town Crier.. It takes all of us!

Things are getting just a bit cooler in Waco, We have had a bit of rain but are still in a drought. I just hope the flooding in different areas will not be too damaging to any who might be near those troubled waters. Al Stevenson lives in Olive Branch, MS and the late Cynthia Kirkland Mazza lived in Madison, MS. We hope the Stevenson family is okay and that Frank Mazza, (Cynthia’s hubby), has escaped any damage.

Remember-

“Let us be kind to one another, to be aware of each other’s needs, and try to help in that regard.”

Waco Town Crier – August 2022

Waco has been hot, hot, hot. In 2011 (our hottest year), Waco experienced 90 days of triple digit temperatures of which 44 days were consecutive. So far, we are only two days behind the 2011 record and the prediction is that we may surpass it. Surely nothing to brag about…. just fact.

Attached is the August issue in document form. I am pleased to say several have been sending items of interest for the Crier. You will enjoy Howard Dudgeon’s “brief history” after graduation in this issue. Also, you will be pleased with a surprise that I announce. I know it has excited me.

Stay cool, stay hydrated, and stay in touch with others. With the pandemic and isolation that so many have experienced over the past few years, with the extreme heat we are now enduring, the monkey-pox and frankly, just older age…. you never know when someone might really be lonely or experiencing health issues or other problems that might need attention. Just knowing that someone else cares or shows concern can often mean so very much. So, do your part if you can.

Be kind to one another and remember:
“Kind words can be short and easy to speak but their echoes are truly endless. ”
– Mother Teresa

Waco Town Crier – May 2022

Friends and Graduates:

Thanks so much to all of you who contribute to the Town Crier and help in its success. I hope each of you will continue to offer items of interest and pictures of the past. If you have not yet sent something, it is always welcomed for you to jump into the fray. Our graduates love to hear/see about others and reflect on the past.

So far, the DID YOU KNOW segment is getting input from our graduates. Please, keep those items of interest coming. I really hope this segment will take root and grow.

We are thrilled this month to feature again the SHOW and TELL This month highlights the life after graduation of Jim Monnig. Jim is such an interesting fellow and I think all of you will be entertained. I hope others who have not yet filled us in on their life after graduation will do so. This has been a most popular feature of the Crier. I will help anyway I can. Remember…you always get to okay every single word and picture that goes out. Nothing will be a surprise to you….only what you want told will be told.

Enjoy! Stay safe, keep as healthy as possible, and may there soon be peace in Ukraine. If we ever think we have problems, we can just watch what those people are having to endure all because they want to be free and live in a democracy. I so hope the good ole USA can keep its democracy. We have surely lived most of our lives during the “good times”.

Waco Town Crier – April 2022

Graduates, I am so excited to let you know that this month we have heard from several who have contributed to the new segment of the Crier: DID YOU KNOW? I am hoping that in the months to come, we will hear from many more. Our graduates love to read what other graduates are doing or have done. You can tell us one thing or more…. or if we really get lucky, you will relate what all you have done since high school graduation.

Very exciting news for the May issue will be the revival of the SHOW AND TELL segment as Jim Monnig has been so kind to tell us what he has done since graduation. I am sure the experiences that he relates will just be a “drop in the bucket” as Jim is very colorful and has many stories to tell. However, I promise whatever he says will be entertaining!! Currently, Jim is working on getting pictures together for the article.

I hope everyone can stay safe from all the spring storms that seem to ravage our country during this season. We need the rain so badly but not the destruction.

Now, hope you will enjoy this month’s Town Crier. And keep in mind to be someone who will share something interesting about yourself with our classmates….by words or pictures. Remember, YOU are the Town Crier.

Again, thanks so much to all who have shared with us. Keep letting us hear from you. And be sure to respond to Robert Wilson regarding the 80th Birthday Party – Robert has some information on it in this month’s Crier.

Peace and Love,
Jeanne
