I haven't talked a lot lately about the HOPE Thanksgiving Dinner and Auction, but I've talked about it for years. I love what Hope Center does for the needy and homeless, and am glad I'm not one of them. Glad they're there if I were.
As we turn the clocks back to standard time today there's things to look forward to.
This could be Waukesha North's first all class reunion... and you're invited! I recall being on the committee for the first couple reunions: lots of phone calls and mailings. Ten years ago: phone calls, web sites, internet searches, mailings, bookings and reservations, and a reunion booklet available on CD. Five years ago we saved postage and spread the word on the internet, meeting at a bar on St. Paul Ave. on a Friday night. We've always had a good turnout and a good time. Now, five years since our last reunion, we're again informally sending out the invites via the internet, but this time all are welcome.
I used to take pride in being the last house on the block to mow the lawn. Kept telling myself I was being environmental by not mowing often or spraying for weeds. Always felt having a nice home and yard took too much time and money, the two things I was most sorely lacking.
