Leon Futch and His New Hearing Aid Dog, Nickie

In Rosemary Futch's own words:

We are now back from Santa Rosa,Calif. and here is a picture of Leon and his Hearing Dog-Nickie. Leon graduated with only missing one question on his final exam. Nickie alerts Leon to all sounds-cell phone, door knock,timer and many more.  Learn more about these dogs by visiting Canine Companions For Independence.

LHS Class of 1959 - 55th Class Reunion

Charlyne Steele would like for all classmates to know that she has taken the initiative and is working to  organize a 55th reunion bash for the class.  It will neither be as big nor as formal as the 50th.  She has chosen Saturday, October 25, 2014, and is asking you to save the date and to 'spread the word".  Additional information will be forthcoming from Charlyne.

Larry (Tug) Hale - American Legion, Post 29

The American Legion National Commander visited our Post 29 in Marietta, GA, on January 24, 2014 for a luncheon, on his whirlwind tour of a few Metro Atlanta posts. I was privileged to present him with a token gift from our American Legion Riders family from that post, after the luncheon.
