IT'S ALWAYS SAD WHEN A FELLOW HHS HORNET PASSES AWAY. EVEN MORE SAD WHEN THE DECEASED IS A CLOSE FAMILY MEMBER. MY SISTER IN LAW, (JUDY'S SISTER) DOLORES "DOEY" BRITTON PAUL, CLASS OF '46, PASSED AWAY ON SATURDAY, JANUARY 26TH AFTER A LENGTHY ILLNESS. UP TO THIS POINT, FELLOW HORNET JACK LACY, HHS '56 HAS BEEN THE ONLY HORNET TO KEEP ME UPDATED ON THE PASSING OF HAMILTON ALUMNI. IF YOU HEAR OF ANY OF YOUR CLASSMATES WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY, PLEASE EMAIL ME SO HE OR SHE CAN BE INCLUDED ON OUR HHS51 BLOG.

WE WILL RECALL THE ART OF MNEMONICS (MEMORIZING THE TIMES TABLES, ENGLISH RULES, CLAPPING THOSE BLACKBOARD ERASERS, VALENTINES DAY, SATURDAY NIGHT CANTEEN, AND OTHER FORGOTTEN EDUCATIONAL VESTIGES OF THE PAST. COME ON OUT...I'M SURE SOME OF YOU WILL LOVE TO SHARE YOUR MEMORIES. IT'S FREE, NO RESERVATIONS REQUIRED, AND REFRESHMENTS WILL BE SERVED.
