I hope everyone has a great New Year (2014). Most everyone has or will turn 65 this year. A big birthday year!
We survived the Polar Vortex here in Spencer, IA. It has warmed up to near freezing. Still cold but bearable. Spring is coming.
Many of you remember Toby Shine, Shine Bros. He has a building in N. Milford that is awesome. He has murals of downtown Spencer from years ago. He obtained information about downtown from our own Brad Howe. There are old and restored cars and hot rods. There are also murals of Arnolds Park, plus he has an auto body shop that is First Class. This would be a place for us to visit on our 50th reunion! Close by is a restuarant called the BLU, and it has some of the Fun House stuff inside (the slide, the barrel, the sugar bowl). It would be a good place for a dinner/reunion!
Again, review the classmate list, and contact any classmates that are not signed up to do so. Don't leave it up to someone else, please.
Just a note, I am a first time Grandparent. Mason was born 12/12/13. He is just a month old, but he is in Allen, TX, a long way from Spencer.
