On Memorial Day - please let us remember the reason for the day!

           Memorial Day has been ignored by too many of us who are beneficiaries of those who have sacrificed their
           lives for our freedom and liberty. Often we do not observe the day as it should be, a day where we actively
           remember those Americans including our ancestors, family members, loved ones, neighbors and friends
           who have paid the price for the blessings of liberty.

           Memorial Day and Veterans Day honor the sacrifices of innumerable individuals who sacrificed themselves
           to preserve the freedoms all Americans enjoy, with Memorial Day remembering those who gave their lives,
           and Veterans Day honoring all who served in the U.S. Armed Forces.

         Remember the Reason!      Remember the Reason!          Remember the Reason!      Remember the Reason!      Remember the Reason!
           Veterans - New law changes permit veterans to use military salute at the hoisting, lowering or passing
           of the flag and the playing of National Anthem. Click Here!

LHS CLASS REUNION ---- LHS 50's thru Class of '63

The classes of LHS 50's through '63 are planning a 60th reunion and long story short, we're reaching out to say we've collectively put dibs on a pavilion at McKethan Park (the VMI site off Old BV Road) for an LHS afternoon/evening gathering, on the first Saturday in August. We hope to see LHSers from the 50's to 1963. That's Saturday, August 5, 2023 from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

We plan to keep it as simple as possible, a time just to reconnect with old friends and catch up. To that end, this will be a light potluck event. We hope the picnic can serve as an anchor event for folks from out of town to see classmates and plan any other individual events they'd like. What we'd like right now is for you to put August 5 on your calendar to come share a light repast, sit a spell, and for out-of-towners, make that a weekend for a Lexington/Rockbridge visit. You may get multiple invites, as other classes are in on this. Please share with anyone you think may not have received this and reply to Lisa at lisatracybooks@gmail.com. We're looking forward to seeing you!
