Who is that man ….. (below)
sitting so sedately at his office desk ?
” Is there anyone in the hall – waiting to see me ? “
It is probably a ‘house’ phone used to contact the boiler room and other offices.
(or perhaps the cafeteria to order a special sandwich for lunch ? )
….. AND THIS, from the Front Office …..
A word from the management of our Joint Class:
We are acutely aware that many of our members now struggle with
age and a variety of health issues. We sympathize with each of you as
we suddenly find ourselves dealing with this thing called ‘aging’
Please take good care of yourselves, and follow your doctor’s advice,
as well as your own good CHS common sense. Our wish for each of you
is for healing and good health – both now and in the future.
We care about each of our members, and their families.
Best wishes 52 & 53 ~ throughout the year,
Special mention to our twenty students who
married twenty from the other class.
Our reason for combining 52 & 53
Dave and Jan (Oppenhuizen) Thompson
General Chairmen for the Combined CHS Class; 1952 & 1953
