Once a Ram, Always a Ram!
Summer of 2021 has arrived...Are you ready?
July 6, 2021
What’s up Rams,
Happy July everyone. Sorry for the delayed update to our website this month, but as you all know, this time of year can be very busy. My wife Nancy and I went on a little mini vacation to enjoy the lovely city of Duluth, and to watch the air show. I’ve been working long hours delivering our products, and keeping my customers happy. Not to mention having fun and playing as much golf (poorly I may add), so this is really the first time that I’ve been able to sit down and get things taken care of. Anyway, I wanted to wish all of you a very happy 4th of July. May all of us take a minute to remember the true minute of Independence Day, and for all of you who were in the service I/we thank you. I also hope you and your families, had a fun, enjoyable and most importantly a safe holiday, and that all of the class of 1979 has a terrific month ahead.
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 may 2021 continue to bring you all many day of happiness.
