Sadly, Lauren passed away yesterday April 5, 2017. Lauren was under hospice care in her home for complications associated with her cancer. Another lovely women taken from our class.

Happy Birthday little lady. I believe its been 52 years since we were dates at the senior prom together. That was my only prom. Apparently, I was a late bloomer. The fact that I had no drivers license and couldn't rub two nickels together may have contributed to this dilemma. Now that I have a car and a few nickels, there aren't any proms for old guys. Have a great day. John Faires

Bill. I have a good friend who I played football with in college who lives in Roseburg. His name is Jim Moyer. He's a former teacher and a track coach. Does a lot of fishing out there. He was our quarterback. Perhaps you two have "tangled" some fishing lines going after the big salmon. John Faires. Ps I got a phone call from Dick Van Bael about a month ago. He's still alive and breathing considering what he's been through. Weren't you neighbors growing up? John. 760-574-6831

Diane: Happy Birthday. I still remember the school bus rides we took from Jefferson & Shook Road to Jefferson Elementary school. Took that bus from the first grade through the 6th. May you continue to have a lot more birthdays. Good health and best wishes. John Faires

This is one of my elk antler bench/ coffee table that I make. This one was donated for a fundraiser which brought in $1200.00. I've made 20 of these benches that I sell in my antique mall space in Denver. Covering is cow hide that I get from Argentina. Antler sheds come from Wyoming from the big Boy Scout Roundup in Jackson Hole. I have about 3 left. Discounts for LCHS GRADS if interested.
