Classmate News for February

<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>

Here's a wonderfully nostalgic You Tube Video just sent in by Classmate Kurt Schleicher.  During these cold and snowy February days, why not watch something that will take you back to the days of our youth?  Just click on this:

Send in some new news about your friends from St. Louis Park High.

It's been snowing a lot in Minnesota lately...but

How's your memory after 75 years?  Here's a picture sent in by Kent Brothen of a 1943 Birthday Party for Carol Banbury.  Kent says that he's on the left (in the sailor's suit), next to Carol (blond with the hair ribbon), with Steve Hamilton (tallest in the back row) and Phil Nichols front and right.  Is Kent right about all of this?

<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>

Here's a picture sent in by Barbara Solberg.  It's apparently a class that moved from Lennox, when it was under construction, to Oak Hill.  Barbara says she can spot Kent Elverum, Janet Aarness, Diana Ewing, Sandy Blair, Elliot Husney and possibly Dan Geldert and Allan Moran.  Several others look familiar but she can't come up with names.  Can you?

 

<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>~<>

Here's Barbara's 2nd entry, also from Oak Hill School.  It is a good thing none of those in the back are hoping for confirmation to any political office today.  What????  And we were just kids!  What on earth were we thinking?  Maybe hoping to be a Governor?

 


 
 
 
       
 

 

                Did you know? 
 ... that today, besides being Valentine's Day in the U.S. (Happy Valentine's Day!) is Respect Your Woman Day? In 1967, Aretha Franklin recorded her hit record, Respect. Celebrate today by continuing to show your respect for everyone!

Today's Inspirational Quotes

"Books permit us to voyage through time, to tap the wisdom of our ancestors. The library connects us with the insight and knowledge, painfully extracted from Nature, of the greatest minds that ever were, with the best teachers, drawn from the entire planet and from all our history, to instruct us without tiring, and to inspire us to make our own contribution to the collective knowledge of the human species. I think the health of our civilization, the depth of our awareness about the underpinnings of our culture and our concern for the future can all be tested by how well we support our libraries."

            -- Carl Sagan
 
 
"Sometimes when you're in a dark place you think you've been buried, but you've actually been planted. Bloom."

             -- Christine Caine
