Steve and Rita arrived in Huntsville save and sound last night! YAY! And they look GREAT! I think New Zealand must have tapped into the fountain of youth?  We're still on for June 9th gathering. Jim will be firing up the grill around 630pm.  Email or text me for our home address and any questions:  or 443-521-7502.

We will provide burgers and dogs and paper goods, utensils, etc . Please bring a dish to share or libation.

Hey Folks, we need to get together sometime soon for a dinner maybe on a weekend early evening. Whose in? The last one we had at Jim & Ruth Hess house was a blast as we all got to see classmate Steve Williams and his wife visiting from New Zealand. Now lets see if we can get something together and get more people from North Alabama & Southern Tennessee to show up. It is so good seeing everyone and hearing about their families and what they are doing now

Norm, Drew, Gary, Karen,

The more the merrier. We all have been friends a long time and it will be a lot of fun to get people together. Please forward your suggestions on places if you would please. Karen, your August time frame sounds great as July I feel is going to rip right past us and these things take time together and to let people know as people don't always check this site. We will need to post something on facebook.

Let the suggestions Begin please !

Wish I had known about the class of 73 on July 21 early enough to get good airline ticket prices.

After Aug 11th works best for Jim and me. We enjoyed gathering with classmates in June. It's always a good time.  Until next time, a few pictures:

Prayers for Charles and Judy. Charles, get well soon dude! God didn't accept your last attempt at checking out so you'll just have to put up with your friends that much longer! Good luck on your surgery on Monday!

Classmates - Charles C. had a cardiac arrest the other day. Was revived, goes into surgery on Monday!

Hey Everybody!

Time to start thinking about our 45 year reunion for 2019! Be on the look out for emails from this class site with survey questions on what, when, where that may be coming down line!

George Hamilton is chairing the committee. Contact him if you would like to help!

A Coach John Childress Update - Wednesday Night 7:10- ok Friends and Prayer warriors. Coach is in a fight right now.  The family had to make the decision to have a PEG tube inserted into his stomach.  It will be done Friday and this is needed so his body does not shut down. He has to get nutrients in his body as he has not eaten in 7 days.  But they also have to take him off his blood thinners in order for this surgery.  We need NO MORE Strokes over the next 48 hours.  We still continue to believe Ole Coach has that fight in him and I know you do too!

Schoolmate Al Smith (Class of 72?) appears to have departed this earth for the next life today. See Grissom class forums on FB.

I am so sorry to hear about Al Smith passing away. I think he was class of 74 I looked him up in the yearbook. I never knew him well but, knew of him . Another Tiger lost. Sending prayers to his loved ones and family.

Hello Fellow Super Class of 1974 Schoolmates!

We are starting to organize the 45 year Reunion of our class. To wit, there is a quick 13 question Reunion survey (when, where, what questions) on this web site that we would appreciate your feedback on ASAP.

You can find its link on the main page, in the left sidebar, uppermost item.

Thanks in advance for your inputs!


J.D. Webster - Enslaved assistant!

From George Hamilton - Reunion Committee Chair:

45th Reunion update: Venue and date are selected, down payment made, now for more decisions.

We'll gather on Saturday, July 27th, 2019 at the Monte Sano Lodge, in Monte Sano State Park. We have the Lodge from 10 AM to 10 PM, and it comes with tables, chairs and WiFi. Maybe Steve Williams (New Zealand), Barney Gilewitz (Thailand) or other far flung classmates will call in. Next decision is a caterer, and menu.

Note that we can have beer, wine or champagne and pour it ourselves, however if we want distilled spirits we must pay a "licensed server".

If anyone knows how to contact David "Catfish" Campbell, please let him know I'd like to talk to him as he has records from the 60th birthday bash.

If anyone nearby would like to visit the facility, we can do that most any weekday between 8 AM & 4 PM.

We need a decorations committee, and they might chose to do a visit.

Let's do this!

Can Steve Cannerossi get licensed as a server? Or maybe he knows someone.
