Once a Ram, Always a Ram!
November 1, 2020,
Hello Rams. Welcome to the start of another new month. I hope that you all had an enjoyable October? Can you believe that we are only 61 days (and counting) until we can wave 2020 good-bye, and welcome in the year 2021.
I wanted to take this moment to update you as to my goals that I’ve set for the website in 2021. Most importantly is locating our fellow classmates who’s names are on the missing page. This is a towering goal and I could use all your help. If you know anyone on the list, please let me know how I can contact them, or have them contact me, so we can get them added to our Facebook Page, or get an email address. Then we can remove their name from the list. After that I would like to freshen up the Senior yearbook photos as well as adding our Sophomore, and Junior year Yearbooks to the site.
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, and may these final months of 2020 bring y’all comfort and good cheer.
On October 14, 2020 Mr. Mike Dec ( a 1972 Ramsey alum) placed a posting on Facebook regarding a class ring that was found by a couple of people about 15 years ago. This couple placed a posting, along with photos of the ring that included the owner Jane Petersons name on a site called Tip Top, and was seeking the owner. Mike saw this, and reposted it on his Facebook group titled Alexander Ramsey High School. Our classmate Gary Olsen saw this posting and reposted this on his personal page. Subsequently, I saw this and reposted this to my page.
Within minutes, I was contacted by Jane, who informed me that 19 years ago her home had been burglarized and that not only was her class ring stolen, but a second ring was among some items taken.
To make a long story short, Jane reached out to Mike Dec, who provided the contact information of the couple who had possession of both rings. Now just a few days later, Jane and her lost rings have been reunited. Such a great story.
