 Volumne III Issue II Fall - 2000 

The Editor's Corner....

It doesn’t seem possible, but here we are again with the Fall issue of "Reflections".
I must start by apologizing for not having an article about the Pleasant Street School which I had promised for this issue. That article is still in the works and we will get it in the newsletter as soon as we can.

I think you will be pleased with the content of this issue. We again have LOTS, of alumni news and letters, in addition to the articles describing the reunion celebrations held Alumni Weekend. Thank you so much for the personal information. Please keep it coming. it is the backbone of the newsletter.

Vicki Harris McDowell '65' has written her memories of Harris Hill and I had a lot of fun reminiscing with her. I remember Ritton Street as "the place to be" especially at Halloween. There were so many kids it was like a big outdoor party when we were Trick or Treating. I think you will enjoy her article which we hope to make into a sort of series and I hope it will prompt others to send their recollections. I am sure that there are other stories that you all have of what it was like growing up in your neighborhood. Send them to the newsletter. Everyone would like to read them.

We have reports from reunion celebrations and a lot of pictures, as many as I could fit in the newsletter. Again, send in your pictures - I will make sure they get printed.

You will also be interested in the article by Greg Davie about the Alumni Basketball Game which with any luck has not occurred before you read this issue. He also has a few other thoughts which should. stimulate some conversation.

Another article I am, pleased to have this issue is the one about the Tri -Town Boys and Girls Club by Bob Fralicker '86. It is wonderful to see the hard work going on in Sidney directed at the young people. This young man has an abundance of energy and a tremendous amount of concem for the welfare of the children of the area.

The article about the Reunion Weekend is only a fraction of the story of the wonderful time we all had in July. The weekend has grown in popularity and more and more alumni are considering attending. Its not too early to make your plans to come to Sidney next July.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Diane Holbert, Debby Puffer, and everyone who helps me to get the newsletter to the printer and mailed to you. It's a lot of time that these people give graciously and I am truly grateful to them.

I hope you will continue to, support the newsletter by sending your articles and pictures.
