Wow, hard to believe so many of our classmates have died! I am truly shocked.

Please send me any trivia you remember about our class, the school and the years we spent together. It will help me plan an activity for our reunion next year. I look forward to hearing from many of you soon.

Hi Everyone: As of today, July 31, 100 people have registered on the website.  We really want  everyone to participate even if they cannot attend the event in September.  We want current data on as many people as possible.  You may think it is early to send in your reply card, but if you know that you are going to come, please mail your RSVP to Libba.  Also, please look to see who has joined and who has not. If you know someone's email address or phone number get in touch with them and remind them to register.  Looking forward to seeing everyone in September. 

P.S. Does anyone know Georgene Hanes current email address? The one we have bounced back.  Also does anyone have Talmadge Dobbs current address or phone number? The committee cannot find him.

I've really enjoyed the Profiles that go beyond the "grave stone" basics, and describe in detail the writers' experiences in life, what is important, the joys and proud moments they have experienced.

I encourage everyone who has not done so to spend an evening writing up a summary of what you feel are the significant events of your life.  This will add to the experience of our Reunion & allow each of us to share more of the life you've lived.

Hello again:

Carol McClellan registered on the site early in the year, but her email has now bounced back and her phone number has been disconnected in Florida. Anyone help with this?

What about Talmadge Dobbs? His invitation came back to us "addessee unknown".  Someone must know his address or phone number.

please look at the people that have died and if you knew anything at all about them, or even remember them smiling in the halls, write it by the two stars, so they can get a rose. Everyone that we know that have gone before deserves a rose! Let's see to it that everyone is recognized.
We had a great class and if I could go back to those years, I would love to have known more people, better than I do.
Can't wait to see you At our reunion! Thank you committee members for doing such a great job with this idea of the computer and catching up with people we have not seen or heard foam in so long! You have really been wonderful in encouraging us to write something of our lives!
With love, Penny Tison Coppedge
PS Those of you that have not written, like Brother Wolf, I encourage you to write. It really makes the memories flood back.

I hope everyone that attended our 50th reunion will join me and also write a message to the organizing committee and the event hosts to give them a big THANK YOU for all of the work they did and how great it all was.  Everything ran so well and it was obvious that a lot of time and thought and work went into the planning.  The wonderful spread at Marc's home, the tiger at the luncheon, the video on Saturday night...thank you for everything.  Those of us that were at the hotel had our own mini-get togethers each morning at breakfast...maybe for our 55th we should all go to a North Georgia resort so we have more time together away from the hussle of the city...just a thought.  Everyone be safe and well and keep the website going.

 I, too, would like to thank all those who worked on the reunion.  How generous of Marc and DeeDee to open their beautiful home to us.  It was a terrific way to begin the weekend!  The idea of the trivia quiz was a riot at the luncheon.  We had something to chat about other than answering, "Where do you live?"  The detail work throughout the events was also impressive--the tiger, the displays from the annuals, the tribute to those who have passed.  But most of all, I really appreciate what an outstanding group of adults we have become.  I feel a sense of pride for just having known all of you.  Thanks for a great weekend.

I too wish to give a whole hearted thank you to the committee that worked so hard to put together one hell of a reunion. I also wish to thank all of those class mates who took the time, money and energy to travel far and wide to attend and bring back a lot of fond memories to this old fella who will remember this gathering with great affection for the rest of my days.

Thank you everyone for the amazing 50th class reunion! John and I both agree, it was "The Best" ever! So much thought and love was put into everything, starting with Marc and lovely Dede's beautiful party and ending with our "Perfect Dinner Dance". Everything was done to perfection, from The poster with all of our classmates gone before us to all of our memories starting with grammar school. What an evening! I am sure we will all hold that evening in our hearts and memories forever! Thank you dear friends for everything. We all felt so welcomed.
With Love, Penny

Thanks to the fantastic committee, led by Mother Libba, who did the creative and literal heavy lifting to provide a weekend of splendid fellowship.

Marc and Deedee's gracious hospitality, Nancy's securing of her condo's lovely and well-located meeting room, and Merrill's purple & white nostalga-bedecked Temple, all enhanced with tasty meals, gave us a weekend to remember. 

On Saturday night, we'd departed, and our "carpool" was already loaded in the car, when I realized I'd forgotten to collect two easels. When we returned to pick them up, there were Marc and Deedee, still dancing the night away, a great last image for the night.

Yes, our class is getting older, but also better.

What fabulous photos! I loved looking at all of them!! I recognized all of the lovely ladies, but definitely needed tags, which you provided, for most of the guys. I hate I missed it!!! Thanks for sharing!

I got a couple of notes (snailmail) off to people sending Doug's and my thanks for a wonderful reunion weekend.  It is amazing the time and effort spent by our "amazing" classmates to put together such a phenomenal weekend.  All did a wonderful job and should be so very proud of their efforts!!  Emily managed to capture everyone who attended events!! I have shared our website with a couple of friends here in Louisville who are on planning committees for their highschool reunion(s) coming up this next year.  They were highly motivated to replicate/duplicate!!  Doug (who has shown pics of Marc's vintage cars to most Louisvillians) and I send our best to all the committee and to everyone who attended....and those who were not able to attend!

With almost 50% of our 1960 NHS class registered on this website, it would be nice to see more activity from those who have taken an interest in what's going on with fellow TIGERS.  Surely there are things going on in your lives that you would like to share with classmates on the Message Forum.  Speaking for most of the participants, I know I would like to share  those experiences, both good and not so good.  Think about it, and let us hear from you.  THANKS.  John

P.S. - For your information (if interested), the 1956 - 1960 VIKING issues are now on

Wanted to let fellow classmate that Doug Johnston & his son Branan are working for my Agency ( MIlton Agency) for the past year. They handle Allstate's Work Place Benefits, such as group cancer, etc. Doug had worked in my Commercial Department & Mortgage Department several years ago. Last but not least I just celebrated my 50 yr with Allstate. It is great to work with a fellow classmate

Buddy, good to hear you are still working and that my old friend Doug is working with you. Doug was one of my room mates at UGA years ago. We had even gone to the 1st Nascar race at Charlotte Motor Speedway way back when 1959 or 60 I believe. We used to joke around that Doug wanted to own a Nascar team and I would be his driver.


My warmest regards to Doug and to you old friend.

I haven't been on our wesite in sometime & it looks like I am not the only one, I believe the last post was in 2015. We should use this site more, anyone doing anything special this year? Sandi & I will be celebrating our 55th wedding anniversary on June 17th. Looking forward to that big 60th coming up 

05/17/18 12:21 PM #23    


Stephen Rich

We will celebrate 55 years married this summer as well. Rrtired to Chapel Hill almost 15 years ago. Lots of stimulation in a college town. Small enough here (60,000) to walk to lots. Anyone coming through please come see us.

05/18/18 08:40 AM #24    

Charles "Buddy" Milton

Glad/Happy to hear you two will also be celebrating 55 yrs this year. Is there anyone out there that has more than 55 yrs with the same spouse?

You guys have me beat. I've only got 51 years with my bride as of May 6th

Juretta C. "Jan" McFarlane

Dear All,

I won't win the contest of being married the longest.

But, maybe I will win the contest of having the youngest children -- my husband and I adopted two children -- one in our late 40's and the second in our early 50's.  Alex was adopted as a baby in 1990 and born in Peru (yes, I was in Peru four months for the judicial process).  Carmen was adopted as a toddler in 1996 and born in Bolivia (enjoyed living in Bolivia a month during the proceedings).  So, maybe having to have the energy to be a mother at this age has kept me young.  When I hear about the health problems of so many classmates, I am extremely grateful for my good health.  Yoga helps physically, mentally and spiritually.

My husband and I have lived in Southern California for the last 30 years -- in the Los Angeles area, South Pasadena, to be exact, right near the start of the Rose Parade festival in Pasadena.

Los Angeles is agog that a local girl will now marry into the British Royal family.  (My claim to fame on that:  I know the neighborhood where Meghan Markle's mother, Doria Raglund, lives -- very nice!)  My daughter and I plan to wear hats, and eat scones, and stay up all night watching the festivities.  What's Not to Like!

I wish you and your families all well -- and the best of health so we can enjoy life as much as we are able -- as long as we are able.

 I keep in touch with Lucia Blackwelder.  She sends me a photo Christmas card every year with her latest family reunion, wedding or grandchild.  Have kept them all.  What a great tradition!

Hope to see you at the next reunion.

Jan McFarlane
