I remember when there were so many students that it took 31 bvuses to take us home. I also remember how many times my dad ended up as our bus monitor! And finally, the elementary school would become the Headquarters building, and the highschool the elementary, junior high, and high school classes combined, and the building that was suppose to become a junior high, would house the rest of the junior high and high school classes! What a difference! And I remember the graduation at the ambassadors in 1975 for my brothers graduation, and the one in 1976 with an afternoon buffet---with some really great swedish meatballs!
Linda, I spoke to Tim Gifford before Christmas, and he tells me that you are in Colorado in the Denver Metro Area. I live in Aurora, and I think it would be fun to get together. I have Fridays and Saturdays off right now, but I am looking at them maybe changing to the normal Saturdays and Sundays off. Let me know how close you are. Maybe we can get together. My home phone number is 303-337-7655 and my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hi Alice, It would be great to meet! I live in Aurora, near the Aurora Mall. I still have all the yearbooks from high school, brochures from Mrs. Brown's Broadway shows, etc. I will have to take a look for your picture. It's been a busy month - I'll give you a call soon.
Thanks for writing in - what type of ship are you a captain? I was lucky to be on the Roger Revelle research ship a few summers ago as a passenger. That 340 foot 'ship' got smaller by a foot for every day of the 10 days we were at sea!! But I had a blast and don't regret having the opportunity to participate in some of the research experiments the Woods Hole staff conducted about the ocean.
Good Morning, Linda. Sounds like you live close to me. I am off of Chambers and Yale next to Wheel Park and Olympic Park and Ride. I look forward to hearing from you. Alice

Remember when not only did we have at least 30 school buses, but the parents had to pull bus monitor duty for a week? And Robert, do you remember how many times we were "blessed" with dad as our monitor?...................
Remember every November 10th at 9:00 AM everything in Turkey came to a halt for about 5 minutes, and a siren sounded in recognition of Atturks' death. I remember all the traffic just coming to a stop where ever they were. One of those mornings a friend of mine Bruce Swenson (he had an older sister named Della)let out the biggest yell right at the same time because a fly flew in his mouth when he was trying to stay quite, it was hillarius.
