Yes! Attending Reunion

After marriage in 1965, lived in Pullman and Seattle, WA; Ashland, OR; Vermillion, SD; and, finally, Elko, NV. I never did much driving in Sacramento so still can't get around without a map when I visit! Need a GPS badly! I attended college classes everywhere we have lived but didn't finish any degree until coming to Elko. I worked as a school secretary, staff of an alumni association, retail associate and graphic artist/technician/printer for two newspapers and a ma 'n' pa printing business. It's very nice to be retired and snorkel in the south pacific or off the coast of Florida, whenever; and ride a motorcycle with my husband all over this beautiful country!

School Story

School was always very serious for me. I was expected to excel and go to college. Projects and experiences as a Senior Girl Scout were my recreation and memory nursery. My best friend from the third grade on was Cheryl Kennedy Echeverria. She attended Kit Carson Jr High but after the death of her father she and stepmother moved to San Anselmo. She never lived in Sacramento again. She is now, also, a resident of Elko with her husband, Bob. They have three boys who now are grown with their own families in Nevada and Utah.

Grammar School

David Lublin Elementary during Mr. Matlin's tenure as principal. My family moved to Sacramento from Concord, CA, in 1953 just in time to begin Mrs. Graham's third grade. There I met Cheryl Kennedy who remains my best friend to this day.

Middle School

Kit Carson Jr High and Sutter Jr High.

Cheryl Kennedy Echeverria passed away in her family hometown, Elko, Nevada, not Greenville, NC. She would be pleased that old classmates from David Lubin School remember her days there, and she loved Sacramento. Her mother was born and raised in Elko where Cheryl's Granddad was the town plumber for years. 

During the years that we lived many states apart, my husband, children and I would either visit Cheryl and her own family in Elko during summer vacations or we would all meet at some National Park and explore. In Elko, our husbands fought wildfire with a crew of Nevada Youth Training School boys, under the auspices of Nevada Division of Forestsry.  We girls would take the kids camping and picking wild fruits and berries for jellies and jams. Even tried our hands at canning - not quite as much fun! 

In 1983,university teaching palled and my husband was offered a position teaching and testing at NYTC and we finally moved to Elko with a whole world of beautiful public lands. It was lovely to live in the same town as my beloved foster sister once again.

Hi, Ginny! I know that you're still about a week away from being another blessed year older but if I wait until then I'm likely to forget and have to send you belated wishes. Bad Terrie!
So, I'm wishing for a beautiful Spring day for you and a good time with friends and pets!??
