Once a Ram, Always a Ram!

October 9, 2021

        Hello and happy Saturday.  I hope that you are all enjoying a wonderful weekend?  First of all I want to apologize for not updating the site sooner, but I wanted to take a short break and take some time for myself and get some things done for myself and my family.  

   Unfortunately, as many of you may have already heard, the class of 79 has lost a dear friend and classmate.  Gary Maas sadly passed away on September 30, 2021.  On behalf of the reunion committee I hope that you will also take a moment to send your thoughts and prayers for Gary, and the family that he’s left behind.  I know that he’ll be missed by many.  More information can be found on the Memorial page.

   So, as we continue through the month of October, not too much has changed.  We are heading into the holiday season with Halloween just  a few weeks away.  So, I just wanted to send out good wish to all of you and your families.  May you all be safe, have the sun shine bright on you, and may the upcoming day bring you good health and happiness.

   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.

      Also, 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 may 2021 continue to bring you all many day of happiness.

   Please take a look at the Events/Birthday/Memorial pages, Missing Classmates, Events and Donations pages as updates to all have been made. We hope that you’ll continue to visit the website or our Facebook pages for up to date news .  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.
