Waco Town Crier – July 2023

Texas seems to be on “fire” again with extreme heat alerts. I think we have to endure a few more days with the heat index being 105 degrees (or more) until the alerts are lifted. The long hot summer has arrived!!

I want to thank everyone so much for their contributions to the newsletter this month. Several have sent stories and pictures which always makes for an interesting read. Keep up the good work!!! Our graduates love hearing from everyone and the experiences you are having or have had!!!

Try to stay cool if your weather is hot… and hopefully any storms have missed you. Waco had a little bit of wind about two weeks ago. The only damage I had was my chimney cap was blown off and some small limbs blown down. Across town some of the large oak trees were uprooted and Lorena had some really large hail. Bad weather has also caused a lot of flight delays so hopefully none of your travel plans have been ruined. Pictured is the size of the hail that Lorena experienced on June 16.

Now, enjoy the July 2023 issue of the Waco Town Crier. Again, thanks so much to all of you who contributed!!

  1. Betty Luedeker Gatlin: Thank you, everyone. I knew some of this about Bobby and, of course, I experienced the ice storm in Williamson County. I worry daily about my shredded trees and our shrinking lakes. It saddens me every time I see a new obituary, but it is good to hear that others know and worry as well. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Betty Tusa (wife of Vince Tusa) Thank you for keeping us informed on Vince’s class.
    Vince is still working; he decided not to have his garden this year— that is his first step on retirement, I think! But, still is mowing, weed eating, keeping farm looking meticulous! He loves his patients and time at the clinic and “farm” going!

  3. Bev Murphy Wells: What a great tribute to Bob Easter by Jim Monnig! Really enjoyed his story and to see the Payne’s having so much fun with their family! The story from David Dibb sharing about his friend Naomi and the Geist family pictures with Don Busby moving to Florence is not a coincidence…that’s a God thing! It’s always good to read about everyone’s trips and travels. I remember ice storms in Indiana but thankful never had the close call experienced by Bill Alexander. Again, so thankful for all the pictures of the quarterly luncheons (good to see Jeanne in one of the
    pictures too); agree with David, without Jeanne, we would more than likely be floundering around with news of our class otherwise! And the Hebrews scripture “Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” Hebrews 13:2 was the main scripture quoted by Dale Evans and
    Roy Rogers in their book “Angels Unaware” book back in the 50’s which was a great read to me!
