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!

256-348-5181 is his cell.

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!

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!

Karen Johnston (Lewis Dunning)

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

45 Year Reunion Update

People are coming forward to make this happen. We will be needing more help soon.

George Hamilton is chairing the reunion committee.

He has secured the Monte Sano lodge property from 10AM to 10PM Saturday 27 July for the main event.

We will also be holding a Friday Night meed and greet similar to what we did on the 40th.

Rick Shrout is providing his usual sound advice and handling the funds. We have placed the deposit to hold Monte Sano Lodge.

David "Catfish Campbell has joined the committee and is coordinating hotel rooms.

Dan Pline has stepped foward and will be helping us plan and organize the Saturday events.

I am now beating the bushes to get volunteers to help us organize our Friday and Saturday gatherings.

What we need:

A. A group of people to help plan out and contract the catering for Saturday night. (4 people)

B. A group of people to organize and set up the Saturday open Tiger Spirit Picnic. (6 people)

C. A team of people to handle the set up and decorations for Saturday night. (6 to 10 people).

Current Reunion Committee:

George Hamilton / Rick Shrout / David Campbell / Dan Pline / J.D. Webster.

(we need females!)
