Once a Ram, Always a Ram!
May 1, 2021
What’s up Rams,
Happy May 1st everyone. I hope that where ever you may be living, it’s a beautiful day. For those of us here in the Twin Cities it’s an awesome day. Well, that’s if you think 81 degree and sunny is a great sounding day. 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 month ahead.
So far it’s been a pretty quiet, uneventful (some may even say boring) couple months, and there really hasn’t been anything new to report. Although, we did have a Bowling/Food Drive – Meet n Greet that was held on Saturday April 24th. It was organized by Chuck Bufton, and about 15 fellow classmates attended. Former Ram (graduate from the class of 73) Tom Cardinal (John Cardinal’s brother) also joined in on the fun. We also raised a lot of food that went to a local food bank. The event (the first of 2021, and hopefully many many more to occur was a great success. So thank you to all who made the scene.
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.
