Once a Ram, Always a Ram!
Well, we’re at the midway point of February, and many of us on top of dealing with this Covid-19 virus are now having to cope with some sort awful weather. Be it extreme cold, snow, rain, fires or whatever, the reunion committee and I hope that you and your families are staying safe, healthy and in good spirits. The good news is that with each passing day, we come one day closer to the beginning of the Spring season, and warmer, sunnier days ahead. We all hope that the new month brings you great happiness, joy and great health.
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.
Once again, We hope that all of you and your loved ones remain safe and healthy. Have a wonderful 2021 my friends
