We had a wonderful reunion in 2005! I know you all would want to
join me in thanking Irma for all the extra work she did and
especially for the class booklet she prepared for us. We deeply
appreciate all of the time and effort it took to prepare it. It is a
great book of memories! Irma recently got married! Congratulations!
She is Irma Cadle now! Let me know if you would like someone’s
address or phone number. I have most of them. (Thanks again to Irma)

Does anyone have school letters, jerseys or anything that we could
piece together to make a 1965 memorial pillow? Anything that refers
to A.H.S and could be applied to a pillow. Irma has offered to make
it, if she can get the materials. She wants to donate it to the
Alderson High School memorial room. Thanks again, Irma!
4th of July Brochure
We’re planning to do a full page ad in the 4th of July brochure. It
will include our 40th class reunion picture and a write-up about our
Alderson Alumni Park
Our class also purchased a brick for the Alderson Alumni Park
sidewalk located on the Monroe side of town. You’ll want to see the
park and view “our” brick when you’re in town. It’s located close to
the old bridge on the Monroe side.
I do have some sad news to report; Dreama Light passed away last
year. My dad and Karen’s dad are also deceased. Mrs. Skaggs’ husband
died recently and she hasn’t been well either.
Helen Dosier, Dave Keadle, Jim Jackson, Grover Eggleston, Gary
Farren, Jim Eskins, Carolyn Humphreys and Jim Russell have all had
health problems. Our prayers are for their improved health. (These
are the classmates that I’m aware of)
We will all have a wonderful time seeing our classmates and
reminiscing about our days at Alderson High. The fellowship will be
great and I’m sure everyone will have a fantastic visit.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, COME!
