Spring signals annual TCHS Alumni Banquet

-A A +A
By The Staff


It’s springtime – the universal time known for rebirth and renewal. We are already seeing the “trumpeters of spring” – hillsides graced with blooming dogwoods and Bradford pears; sunny jonquils and hyacinths have made their cheerful appearance, while the winds have blown circular blankets of blooms around tulip trees.

These wonders also introduce our second most hectic seasons of daily living. It’s in our busiest

times we risk missing unexpected blessings.

I can truthfully say I am one who has failed to attend past TCHS Alumni Banquets simply because I felt overwhelmed by other commitments. But my feelings have changed.

 In 2004 my husband and I received an invitation to a meeting to discuss a “once in a lifetime” reunion with our graduating Class of 1969.

Thanks to Neil Bryan and others who helped, the entire Class of ’69 was invited to go on a cruise to Alaska. What an amazing idea. The beauty of the Alaskan country couldn’t surpass the beauty of being with old friends.

We soon learned that though we were the same people we were in “name” in 1969, life’s situations had groomed each of us into what we have become today.

That was one of the richest experiences of my life.  

We’re making a special attempt to contact the members of the Class of 1969. At this year’s banquet, during the “meet and greet” session, this class will gather in a designated area to make plans for our next reunion. We hope to have a huge turnout for our 40th  year.

While the nation is focused on the economy and stimulus plans, we can increase the wealth in our own life by attending this year’s Alumni Banquet.

I hope all Trimble Banner readers who are TCHS graduates will take another look at their calendars and see what they can rearrange for one night of fun and friendship, starting at 5 p.m. Saturday, April 18.
