  Thanks to Sandra Green Reuther for sharing Bill Gillum's speech at the Block One party. I recognized most of the names as many of them belonged to Columbia Valley Grange of which I have been a member since 56. I saw many of those people at Grange functions.
  Bill's mother Helen Gillum taught with my mom for years at Whittier and Robert Frost Schools in Pasco. I talk to Helen at least every five years when I'm looking for lost classmates for our '60 Reunion. She is a fountain of information and a pillar of the community.

  It is always a pleasure to defeat those godless lions! Well done, Bulldogs. You have our highest respect and admiration.

  Those of us from Class of '63 remember that Homecoming was always on November 11, always with Kennewick. Something to remember too is that that is Veterans' Day and State Admission Day. Rather a triple celebration in one. Since that date will fall two months after the World Trade Center maybe somebody can come up with something that would be significant this year.
  I did hear that Ed Hue (63) and his wife were putting together a project called "A Day's Wage" donation in the Tri-Cities to raise money for a fire engine for the NYFD to replace at least one of the ones lost. I've heard no follow up. Anyone know anything?

  To Irma Kulp Zacher   Nope. Judy Whitmire was an only child. Thanks for the try though.

  I too have heard from the past through this site. A neighbor, Ann Johnson contacted me. She was a West Pasco country girl too. Her dad grew grapes for Welches. The message from her brought back the memory of the aroma of that area in the fall. Grapes permeated the air. We lived on Sylvester and Road 47. Our group of kids really covered from about Road 32 to Road 100, Sylvester to Argent. It really covered anything we could ride on horse back in a day. One of the favorite spots was Zimmerman's store on the corner of 52 or 68 and Court. We'd gather up any change that we could find and ride horseback or bicycle up there for a feast on candy and pop. It was like an oasis in the middle of nowhere. We also used to race horse on Argent when it was still dirt. Most of the time we where riding the horses bareback, going "hell bent for election." Kay Foley and I would sometimes get up early in the morning during the summer, make a lunch, catch the horses (which was not always an easy task) and ride off into the dawn. We would not return until almost dusk. Spend the whole day just being together with the horses and not having a care in the world. No one seemed to worry about us. And God knows we didn't worry about anything, unless we fell off  and didn't have a rock to stand on to get back on. If I had the tall horse (Ladd) I was too short to swing back up. So Kay would get off her horse, boost me up on my horse, then she could swing up on her horse. Things don't change much . . . A boost from a friend is still what I need now and then.

  I also heard from Judy Blackstock, but she is in my sister's class I think. Anyway, if there are any others out there that remember hanging out in that area, let's hear from you. It makes fun reading and a great trip down Memory Lane.

P.S. Road 52 was one of the great "Parking" spots. Anyone remember that?
