A good way to begin

Start the New Year with a CHS'54 Lunch!

By Jerry Gaudet

But first, a report on our December "Special Project"...

Here's the message we received from Mary Burnett from the Avante Center where our Shirley spent her final days:

From: Mary Burnett
Subject: Re: CHS'54, Christmas gifts honoring Shirley

... "I didn't know what to expect when I suggested collecting Christmas gifts for Avante in Shirley's memory. The response was overwhelming. It just proves that our generation has a big collective heart, expecially if they attended Central High School... Heather, the activites director, was appreciative of our contributions to their Christmas. Maybe we could do something else for Avante later - or for someone or some group."

This month's "LDL" (Let's do lunch) will be held on
Tuesday, January 11, 2011, 11:30 AM
at "Jimmies" in Mint Hill.

Spread the word! Invite other classmates to come! Even better, bring someone with you! Be sure YOU, come!
