  Paul, remember to remind your classmates to include a visit to the Franklin County Museum in their agenda during your August reunion. We're always looking for new members as well -- just $15 a year. A better buy for the money than "People" or the "Enquirer!"

Thanks again.

  Is there nobody from the class of 1957 out there (first class to go all four years in the new building), or are we all senile and helpless and can't "get into it?" I saw somebody's msg who mentioned Ethel Booth (just turned eighty!) and makes me wonder about our art teacher, Ms. Rusick? Anybody remember her?

  Palm Springs is good for me in these, My Golden Years!

Hi -
  My name is Jane (Berni) Duncan, class of 58 PHS. I just found out about this list yesterday at a picnic. I went back to my old neighbor where I had a home until last year. Was talking to one of my old neighbors (had lived across the street from her for 13 years) and accidentally found out that her maiden name was Flaten and of course I had gone to school with Janice and Arlene. Needless to say we had quite a visit and she told me about this web site.
  Soooo I would like to hear from anyone that remembers me.

To Lisa Richwine (`83):
  I remember Ron very well - he was Gary Reed's best friend. Gary lived with your family after his father was killed in an airplane crash. I used to go out with Gary and knew Ron quite well - he was a very kind person and was an excellent friend to Gary. He was on the football team and, I think, the baseball team. He was very shy around girls but I guess I was acceptable as I was just a friend.

  My best to your family who was so kind to take Gary in and become his family.

Hey 1964 grads!
  Where are you all? All I am reading here is messages from the older set. Didn't we take typing during the summer at good ole PHS?

  Mary Jane Stringham Vail - do you remember when you plucked your eyelashes in 5th grade in the hopes they would grow back fuller? (Did they?)

  Thinking about Pasco a lot this week as my Uncle Sid passed away last Friday -- some of you may remember him from Carls. Lots of good memories from those simpler days.

Hugs from Seattle,

  The summertime was always fun in the Tri-Cities.

  Water skiing on the Columbia and Snake. You always knew when you reached the waters off the Snake as the river water instantly became 10 degrees warmer.

  Bike riding out to Road 68/99 to go swimming.

  Water Follies - street dances

  Back yard slumber parties. Where the boys would pester and play tricks on the girls in my back yard. I remember my mother getting a water balloon in her face from either Ron Dupuis or Jim Hull (they both came and apologized to her the next day). Then for retaliation we girls did steal all the guys shoes while they were sleeping out at the Hulls one night. And the pranks went on. That particular summer was special for all of us - before jobs, before cars.

Special memories.

  New pictures are on the PHS Alumni On-Line web site showing installation of the Field Turf. Quite a process! Look under Special Archives & Other Stuff. I hope everyone coming to town for reunions this summer will have a chance
to take a look. If you haven't bought some turf yet, go to http://www.pascohigh.com/fieldofpride/donate.html

  I've also got some pictures of the Nike Air Pasco shoe fitting held last weekend at Edgar Brown, but it will be a few days before I can sort through all 175 of them for a few to put on the web site.
