Jack & I have celebrated our 57th anniversary.
I liked each of my teachers, but, I have fond memories of Mr. James N. LeDuke, my 1st, 2nd, and 4th year Latin Teacher. Possibly, the only accurate sentence that I could speak today, in Latin would be, "I Love You."
Hopefully, 2010 will be a good year for all of my classmates. My class met in September 2008. We have been meeting annually for several years. We continue to enjoy each one's fellowship.
Last year, a small number of my classmates attended the All School Reunion.
Two of my classmates, Marie Pierce Herr and Albert Thompson passed away since the reunion.
This is not my favorite school story, but, one I will never forget. During my Senior Year, a member of our class, acquired a copy of a History Test. Mr.Truett called us in one by one. He made me feel about 10 inches tall, when he said "Arline, I did not believe that you would have looked at that test."
