For me the cruise would be at the top of the list. Love cruising but all of these suggestions are good for me.

Great 4th of July to you all. Glad to see some discussion on this site about possibilities for a 70th Birthday Party.  Keep those ideas coming. ........ On a sadder note our classmate and friend Jana Koucourek Teakell has passed away in Waco Texas.  Her services will be next week. I am not sure of the date yet.  Sonny and I will be attending.  My heart is sad but she is no longer in pain.  

God Bless you all with a safe and Happy 4th!!!

Jana and George had both been ill for awhile now.  I am totally saddened by this news and wish to you all that you would pray for their families.

Does anyone know if Bryan Ohmert had any brothers or sisters.  Since I could not find a full obit on him, I'm adding as much information as I can find on him for a "created" obit.

Hi Leah, I just sent you the announcement that Bryan's family sent out on Facebook- it has a name and number to call if you have questions.  Hope that helps! -Rosie

Two of the finest musicians (among many) produced during the Bob Renfroe era at TCHS.  Jerry Atwood, Class of '68, with Hannibal Lokumbe (aka Marvin "Pete" Peterson), Class of '67, at the memorial service for Mr. Renfroe.  Hannibal treated us to his interpretation of a Just Closer Walk With Thee.  Also great to see Pam Hobbs Bradley there.  Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi everyone, hope you are surviving these most unusual times.  A lot of my younger neighbors and friends find working from home challenging, especially those with children.  I have had "on-the-job" training for this scenario for a few years now, ie retirement.  The stay-at-home transition hasn't been too hard for me.  But seriously, a lot of people  have lost their jobs and even their lives.  It is satisfying to see so many reaching out to help others.  Keep everyone in your prayers.  Beverly

As we prepare to celebrate Christmas this year I want wish everyone a very blessed Christmas. My prayer is that all of our classmates know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour if not there is never a better time than now. Jesus said if you believe in me you have eternal life! God bless.

Ruth Ann McDonald (McRary)

Thanks Clifford  for the note for all to get right with God, Sooner rather than later.  Our class elected class officers to help organize our meetings and put some structure to our group.  Keith Walker was elected President, Philip Cotharn was elected Vice President, Carolyn Baker Ivey was elected Treasurer with Susan Stokes Simmons as her backup.   Ruth McDonald McRary was elected Secretary, Leah Chauvin was elected as Chairperson of the Memorial Committee and of course Wanda Barlow Fife was elected Chairperson of the Events Committee.  It was decided that unless we had something going on with the group we would meet once a quarter starting January 12, 2021.  With all the illness around us and the possible surge in the virus expected right after the New Year it has been decided to wait until April 13 to start our meetings.  I have set-up a Zoom meeting site and we will be able to have those of you interested in joining us at these meetings through Zoom.  As the date approaches I will make available the meeting entry number so you can join us.  I hope you all had a safe, happy new year and continue to be healthy and virus free.  I personally cannot wait for the vaccine to become availble so I can get mine.  May 2021 be a better year for those who are struggling and need relief.

Hope everyone has a great week as we remember what Jesus did when he was crucified, buried, and resurrected so that those who trust in him will have eternal life. Have a very blessed Easter.

The President called for a reading of the Treasurer’s report.  The Treasurer gave her report and explained since we opened a new account it could not be a business account in that we are not an established business.  It is a senior account and all checks sent to the account can be made out to Caroline Baker Ivey, Susan Stokes Simmons or Keith Walker with a note as to what the money is for.   The President asked if there were any corrections or additions.  As there were none, he called for a motion to accept the Treasurer’s report as presented.  Ruth McDonald McRary made the motion.  Wanda Barlow Fife seconded.  The motion carried.

After some discussion it was requested that these items be added to the minutes of meeting.

That we look into a possible party at a beach house in Galveston.  Ruth McDonald McRary said she would work on it.

It was also discussed that a party could be held again at Pook’s between the months of July and December.  Everyone decided a December Christmas party would be great at Pook’s.  A date of Saturday, December 4, 2021 was made.  More details to be worked out at the next meeting.

I am having trouble posting the minutes of our meetings on this site.  I just added the last meeting's minutes after the first meeting.  I am not going to continue to post the minutes on this site.  If you want a copy email me and I will send them that way.  My email address is  You can contact me on Facebook too.  We are having a get together on Saturday, June 12th.  Letters will be going out.  No one knows what tomorrow will bring.  It is fun catching up and just enjoying old friends.  Come if you can.  I had trouble getting started going to these things when I moved back to Texas City, but now I am really glad that I did.  Hope to see as many of you as can make the journey to Texas City or just across town.  You can contact any member of the committee for more information.
