November Announcement from The 60th Class Reunion Planning Committee: Five men have joined with thirteen of the women in our class; they have been meeting to plan a "Great 60th Reunion."  Here is their first general announcement:

Mark your calendars for the weekend of August 24, 25 and 26, 2018!  Our St. Louis Park High School Class of 1958's 60th Class Reunion will offer activities that weekend, culminating in a banquet on Sunday, August 26, 2018, at the Minneapolis Golf Club.  Watch this website (www.slp58.com), your email and your mailbox for further details.

                           

 

 
 
 
       
 

 

                Did you know? 

... that today is Dewey Decimal System Day? Published by Melville Dewey in 1876, this system organizes library materials into fields, which are further divided into smaller, more specialized areas. Dewey was also a big proponent of the metric system and was the founder of the American Metric Bureau. Trivia fans: only 3 countries in the world do not use the metric system today -- the United States, Myanmar, and Liberia.

Can you recognize this photo?

For the next several months a photo from decades ago will be posted below.  You should be tempted to try and identify the person in the photo.  Write down their name.  Some will be easy; others far more difficult.  But this exercise will be a fun one for you to check out every couple of weeks to see if your memory is still intact and working!  The name of the person in the photo will be posted the next time a new photo is shown.

Last November 23rd's photo was of: Elizabeth Taylor (in all her 1950's beauty)!

Here is our December 4th photo from 1918.  This may not be an easy guess!  He was a Red Cross volunteer during WWI; but that's not what he is most noted for.

Today's Inspirational Quotes

"The librarian isn't a clerk who happens to work in a library. A librarian is a data hound, a guide, a sherpa and a teacher. The librarian is the interface between reams of data and the untrained but motivated user."

            -- Seth Godin
 
 
"I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you."

            -- C. JoyBell C.

“December's wintery breath is already clouding the pond, frosting the pane, obscuring summer's memory...”
John Geddes
God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December. - James M. Barrie
“I heard a bird sing in the dark of December. A magical thing. And sweet to remember. We are nearer to Spring than we were in September. I heard a bird sing in the dark of December.”
