July 4th 2018


Greetings and we hope everyone’s summer is going well. Hot outside here in KC but for our classmates in Arizona this is just another cold winter day.

Center is in the news twice. Once at the graduation where there were shots fired, and again in a KC Star editorial about how great the district actually is. Here is the link to the puff piece: Don’t Define Center by the shooting. Our district is a family. And here is the one for the shooting:

The recent all class picnic was a well-attended success. We do not have information on any of our classmates attending.

The next all-class dinner at RC’s will be Friday, July 14th.

Don Snoddy is doing better. He is still using his walker and has other problems but he is getting out. We just heard that he is on his way to the ranch in Nebraska. Getting back out on the open range should speed his recovery.

George Lacy’s birthday is today (as this is written) July 3rd. George wasn’t supposed to have any more birthdays. About 4 years ago he was on life support, tubes, etc due to various illnesses. The doctor gave him about 30 days so he told them to “Pull the plug.”. Well, they did, and he started improving. Still not out and about bur still with us all the same. He is in the VA home in Mt Vernon MO. If any of you are in that area, or driving by, stop in and see him. Address:

Missouri Veterans Home
1600 S Hickory St.
