Comments:

My husband and I are both retired and are spending a lot of our time finishing out the full basement. We recently sold our acreage, barn, and pond so we only have the upkeep of the house we had built in 1978 and the surrounding yard. We've had a front porch added and deck in the back which greatly changes the appearance of our place. We have 2 grandchildren who are 4 and 9 yrs. old and live in Ok. We recently bought a camper and parked it near Claremore for the purpose of family gatherings nearer our grandchildren.
Our church is an important part of our everyday lives and do enjoy the company of those friends. My other 4 siblings live in close proximity so we keep in close touch.
I would welcome contact with classmates via this messg. center, phone call, or visit to our home.

School Story:

Vocal music was my extra activity during my school years and I continued on with it through my college years. During my last 2 years of college in LeMars, Ia., I was a member of the top 64 member travelling chorale and sang at the World's Fair in Montreal Canada in 1968. We travelled by private buses for 2 weeks to and from Montreal taking in some of the local tourist attractions including Niagara Falls and the exhibits of the Fair.

I used Phil Tate's link and it worked for me also. I just noticed Amy's married name of Neumann and that's the same as my Mother's maiden name; it was pronounced Niman. Now days it's pronounced Newman and they've dropped one of the ns. Her grandparents came from Prussia because the Zzar (sp.?) was forcing all to war. It was the same for the Elsheimer's.

We just celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary on August 10th with a reception and meal at our church in Independence, Grace Memorial United Methodist. Our 2 children hosted the gathering. Our official anniversary is August 29, 1969. We're both retired and planning to down-size our things and move nearer our grandchildren in Ohio.
