Here is your 50th Anniversary planning committee.  We had a great barbecue picnic in the Grove at GHS and a dinner dance at the Greensboro Marriott Downtown.  As time goes by, it's good to look back and remember those times we shared with classmates.

"These are the times that try men's souls."  The voice of patriot Thomas Paine back in the 1700s.  And here we are almost three hundred years later having trying times as we are isolated, some alone, some in-firmed and others still functioning quite well. I for one am tired of the singular issue of newscasts.  They are depressing positivism.  

In the broad context of our lives, we truly have much to be thankful for. Foremost, we still exist and are actively doing some things. At our age that is an achievement in and of itself.  We've reached another Spring and in North Carolina it came early and has been beautiful.  To watch it unfold, is to watch the rebirth of our lives.  I hope you feel reborn and renewed as Spring is a symbol of that hope. 

We have proven to be one of the greatest high school classes at GHS.  This is proven by our continued generosity to the scholarship fund, our great reunions, twice yearly luncheons, and by engaging one another on the website. 

Stay relevant, stay well and let us plan to see each other in the fall when the air is clear, crisp and free of the virus.

So now we know Jim's thoughts on the pandemic!

How about yours? Experiences? Activities?

Accomplishments? Feelings? Reflections? Hardships?

If you'd like to know what the rest of our

classmates are doing, send me a paragraph

or a page about YOU. Should make for

some insightful/humorous/interesting reading!
