Posted 7/11/24:  Class of ’71 save the date

Hello Class of ’71, spouses and friends. Half the year has passed for this year of 71 for many of us. We’ve had a couple of unique celebrations and will continue through December.
Our 2nd quarter celebration pics, “On the doc of the bay”, have been posted thanks to our photographer’s, Angie Neel for scripting, and to Nancy Watson for her continued admin of our CHS site. If you haven’t noticed, and utilize Facebook, Pam Day is facilitating a CHS’71 page, please check it out.

The end of September will mark the end of the 3rd quarter. I’m thinking there should be another celebration for July, August and September classmates turning 71. The 9th month of the year seems to be a popular travel month, but I’m hoping many of us can be available for our next Birthday celebration September 26, 2024. Please mark this date on your calendar for another local Metro area birthday get-together. To be fair we are going back over the river into Old Town Alexandria or Shirlington, Virginia where there are many excellent venues. With assistance we will choose one and set up this next event.
The end of the 4th quarter is an annual celebration planned by Joe Volenakis, and I’m hoping he will continue that tradition.

Enjoy your summer. Stay safe and as healthy as possible. ‘71 is turning 71.
