A letter to fellow classmates:
........ .... .... ..................... .. ...........Dear Class Member,
Yes, we're celebrating our 30th year since graduating from DHS! You won't want to miss this one. We are also inviting the classes of 1968,1969 and 1970. It all takes place Sept. 28 and 29, 2001. The schedule of activities is as follows:
Friday, Sept. 28, 7:00 p.m. - DHS Homecoming at Tiger Stadium as D'field v.Lindale. The Class of '71 will sit together in a designated area north of the press box. After the game there will be a get together at Jerry Pratt's Law Office for an hour or so. Jerry's offices are in the big white building across from the Morris County Courthouse. Since this was a last minute addition to the events, the get together will be "B-Y-O-Beverage" and maybe a bag of chips or a container of dip.
Saturday, Sept. 29, 9:00 a.m. - For women and men:"Show Up and Choose Up Scramble" golf tourney at Beaver Brook Country Club. Coach Richard Woods is the Tournament Chariman. The green fee + sharing a cart is $32.50. Please Call Suzanne or Janet at BBCC if you wish to play and if you need a cart. You may pay the fee the day of play. If you have any questions, call BBCC at 903/645-2976.
Saturday night, Sept. 29, 8:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. - BBCC's new clubhouse ballroom. Lots of visiting, awards, superb buffet the entire evening and music provided by DJ Paula Prince beginning at 9:00 p.m. [pre-requests welcome] A cash bar will be available. [Since we did not get as many early registrations in as we'd hoped, we're scrapping the gala we'd planned for Saturday night and are instead trying to put together an impromptu Dutch Treat dinner at Catfish Village.]
We're working on something special for the Class of '71 and we need any photos you might be able to send with a caption detailing them. Please be sure your name is on the back of each photo you send so that we may return them to you at the reunion. Send photos to Laura Grainger, 1224 Fm. Rd.130, Daingerfield, TX. 75638 no later than Sept. 15.
If you plan to attend, please respond no later than Sept. 15. The cost for those attending is $50.00 per couple or $25.00 per person. In order to cover all planning expenses, it is necessary we receive your money no later than Sept. 15. If payment is received after this date, the cost will be $60.00 per couple or $30 per person. Mail checks to: Molly McCain Loving, 1497 CR 2985, Hughes Springs, TX. 75656. (903) 639-2547.
A web site is being created to keep up with the plans still being made to make this a most memorable reunion. We welcome written contributions to this website. Share your memories. Share a funny (that's not too embarrassing) story about yourself or a classmate. Contribute a digital photo. Location (you have to sign up with reunion watch to view this site, but that is free):
We look forward to enjoying this milestone reunion with you and our "upper classmates" and hope your busy schedules can accommodate the above dates.
Very truly yours,..................................
Laura Larsen Grainger
Three cheers for Laura Larsen Grainger for all her hard work!
