December 31, 2016

It's the eve before another new year, one that will see most of us marking it as the
75th of our lives.
Hopefully as many of all of us as possible will do so at one or more of our anticipated
upcoming reunions for the year.

Spotted classmate Norman Taylor featured in the recent December 28 issue of the
weekly Midweek publication along with his fellow amateur radio enthusiasts.

Mahalo to all those writing in with their best wishes for the holidays and new year.
The past year and others have been sometimes turbulent, oftentimes sad, yet many
times vibrantly alive with each new day.
Sending my best wishes for a great new year for all with many more to come.

Dear Hal,
Thanks for letting us use your blog for our wishes to dear classmates all over the world!
What a special time of year when all hearts are warm with love, good food and hot fudge
sundaes!!! he he he well, at least good dark chocolates!
It's not that cold here in Canada, 33F right now and lots of snow on the ground and nice,
sunny Christmas Day expected for tomorrow.
Wishing everyone a very special Christmas and all the best in 2017.
I'm coming April 8 - May 20! Too bad I didn't realize that KHS thing was in March or I
could have come a bit earlier!!!
Take care.

Love, Ian and Pam (Machida) Halford

December 24, 2016

Tis the day of the Eve before Christmas.
I was about to send out this blog with "It's been quiet here with apparently
just about everyone busy with the holiday season or other things".
Thanks Gerri and Clarence, wishing all the best to you too.
Any others wanting to extend their best wishes for the holiday season and
a great New Year on this blog are more than welcome to do so.

Have had a few classmates inquire about any upcoming reunions.
As of this date, nothing firm except perhaps one in Hawaii and another
somewhere on the mainland as per previous years.
In the meantime though, do set aside March 25, 2017 for the annual KHS
Foundation fundraiser dinner as an interim reunion/get-together.
Besides our classmates, there may be school mates from other years that
you may know or recognize.
The 1961 class always has a large contingent on hand every year.

Please have a safe and great end-of-year holiday season everyone.
