Once a Ram, Always a Ram!

Summer of 2021 has arrived...Are you ready?

June 6, 2021

      What’s up Rams,

   Happy June everyone.  Sorry for the delayed update to our website this month, but my job at Johnson Brothers, and getting products to our customers has kept me working long hours, and this is the first time that I’ve been able to sit down and get things taken care of.  Anyway, even though we’re still two weeks away from the official start of summer those of us here in the 651 (as well as other locations around the world) are hopefully enjoying summer like weather at this time.  With the warmer temps that we’re all having it’s great to see that life appears to start to return to pre covid normalcy.  Mask mandates are being removed (at least for many of us), business’s are returning to full capacity, or opening back up, and activities seem too be picking back up  So, hopefully this will make the summer of 2021 so enjoyable for all of us.  I hope that all of the class of 1979 has a terrific month ahead, and may you, your friends and family, remain healthy, safe and continue to have an enjoyable June.

   The committee, would like to send out congratulations to our fellow classmates who may have children or other family members who may be graduating this year.  So, for those of you, congratulations on the well deserved success, and we hope that your graduate chases their dreams.  Never stops trying or never stops learning. Lives life to the fullest, and achieves whatever they want in life.      

   As always, our most pressing goal is to locate many of our classmates who are missing.  With your help, we are doing a great job at finding many of our classmates, and removing there names from the list.  This is a daunting goal for us, and we continue to need your help.   So, if you’re in contact with anyone from the list, please have them contact us so we may add them to our class email list or (if they’re on Facebook) we can invite them to join our class page on Facebook .  We also have a Page on Twitter as well as on Instagram.  Both can be found by looking up Alexander Ramsey 79.  Although we know it’s not possible, we’d love to eliminate every missing name on that list.

   We’ve heard from many of our classmates that they’ve lost class yearbooks, and would enjoy an opportunity to see them once again, so another goal would be to add our Sophomore, and Junior year Yearbooks to the site.  Not to mention freshening up the photos from our senior yearbook

   If you have any suggestions of what you’d like to see added to the site, please feel free to send me your ideas, and we’ll see what we can do.

   Have a wonderful month and 2021 my friends.

   Please take a look at the Events/Birthday/Memorial pages, Missing Classmates, and Donations pages as updates to all have been made. We hope that you’ll continue to visit the website or Facebook pages.  So from Mary Koppy Nicklay, Sheila Johnson Youngquist, Mary Falkowski Conway, Nancy Schmaedeke Petrun, Bob Kaye, Julie Kruse Ledvina, Nancy Olsen Reed and myself, Randy Reed, stay in touch, and have a great day, Rams.
